Trick Brown


I am a 40ish Doctor of Mathematics. (See how I did that? Because I’m not really 40 yet, I don’t have to update my profile for years!)

I grew up in central New York on a picturesque lake in the middle of wine country. Sadly, I am not one for boats or wine, but that doesn’t make the area any less beautiful in the summer and fall.

I have always wanted to write, quite literally since the age I learned to write. I remember being six years old and writing an episodic story about a turtle named Herman. I had a strange fascination with turtles when I was a young child. Why is it I never got one as an adult?

I misspent my young adulthood learning and teaching Tae Kwon Do and French Fencing. I love learning, which is one reason I love writing. No matter how good you get, there’s always more to learn. It would be nice to learn about this stuff for the rest of my life.

I eventually gave up the martial arts to study mathematics at the University at Albany, SUNY. While working on my PhD, I learned to swing dance, and taught calculus. After graduating, my friends have insisted on calling me “Doctor”. I suppose I can’t blame them, after all, it is my fault.

As for my writing, I am not so delusional as to think that what I write will be inspirational, but I do hope it’s fun. My only goal is to make the characters come as alive to the reader as they are to me.

Smashwords book reviews by Trick Brown

  • Demon Chronicles: Apple Moonshine on March 23, 2013

    I enjoyed the main story, but this book also includes four pieces of flash fiction which reminded me of free verse poetry that also told a little story. I think I enjoyed them even more. These will be well worth the time.
