Ralph LeBrun is native Floridian and a resident of Central Florida. He lives there with his wife Virginia, daughter Ruth, and son Ben. He has a deep appreciation for steam engines and all things Steampunk so after being stuck in the retail business world for over 30 years he decided it was time for a change. Writing went from being an escape to being a passion, thus book one of "The Collector's Series - Harry's Journal" was born. Be on the watch for more books in the series to come.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small rural town near the Tampa Bay area of Florida. At night with no air conditioning I could always hear the trains.
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing after moving to the Central Florida area around 2009. The idea for the Collector's Series was born around 2013.
