As a disabled, illiterate orphan, Brian seemed destined to never be a high achiever, let alone an author. Not until his journal entries at the age of thirteen were his reveries first placed on paper. Vivid, wild, and untamed, his aptitude shined. His teachers read the entries in disbelief. It must have been plagiarism, they said. They didn’t understand his need for the written word and further suppressed his imagination. Crafting visions and scenes of a world of wonder helped Brian create and escape the traumas of his childhood. Today he weaves his personal experiences and growth throughout the arcs of his characters. Brian intertwines the depth, struggles, and courage of humankind and playfully laces them with the lucid, unabashed dreams of a child.
