Brandon Messerschmidt resides in Michigan, with his wife and son, where he currently drones away in his retail management position -- writing for a distraction from the day to day grind.
He fancies himself a storyteller more than an author -- seeking to entertain, not impress with iron-clad prose or seldom used words that require a peek at the online dictionary.
His work typically walks a fine line between science fiction, horror, adventure and general character drama. Many of the concepts explored in his novels are based around his own daily struggle with "faith"; though he subscribes to no particular religion or ideology.
As a former truck-driver and inner-city store manager, he's seen plenty of the "stranger than fiction" happenings that are often attributed to this mystical state we call reality. A lifetime of introspection, people watching, and battles with inner-demons have forged an understanding of the Human animal that is unique -- and often captivating. The journeys and adventures that his characters endure often throw up a mirror that beckons readers to take a long look at themselves and decipher what they see through a foriegn set of eyes.
Some of his work, on the other hand, simply takes readers along for a white-knuckle ride through the breach...
Indeed, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
No fancy hole-punches or guillotines here, so open wide and bite the end off of that stogie... strike a match and fire it up: for tomorrow, we shall die.
