Publisher info

Brian was born and raised in Seattle in 1959. He grew up in the town of Mount Lake Terrace, a small suburb north of the city. Brian, being the youngest, had two siblings, his eldest brother, Mike and sister, Pam. School was challenging, as Brian suffers with Dyslexia, a learning disability that affects 1 in 15 Americans. That didn’t stop Brian. He was named "bookworm" in school because he always had his nose in a book.

Brian received his MBA in 2010 in Business, now writes for fun, living his lifelong dream of writing science fiction books. He enjoys his off time, with his seventh grade sweetheart, Diana Rose now for going on sixteen years. She has been by his side and continues to supports his writing. Brian says that without her encouragement, his dream would never have become a reality. They now live in Marysville, Washington, and enjoy three wonderful kids and eight grandchildren. They range from newborn to thirteen, and he says they are so special and great to have around.

It is Brian’s hope that through his writing he will fill hearts with joy to readers all over the world, sparking their imaginations.

Smashwords Interview

A little about your background?
I was raised a poor bla- oh, that’s a different story. I was born in June of 1959 in Seattle, Washington and lived in the town of Mount Lake Terrace. I grew up with two siblings, a brother and a sister. In school, I didn't do very well and never excelled at much of anything, except my imagination and his love for reading. I was given the title "bookworm" in school because I always had my nose in a book.

I could ready fairly well, but didn't know that I had a learning disability that would prevent me from understanding English. It wasn't until later in life that I discovered that I suffered from Dyslexia, a learning disability that affects millions of people.

I have held many jobs in my young adult life including, cleaning a meat market, pumping gas, carpet cleaning, and apartment maintenance. When I finally discovered that I suffered from this disability, I decided to better myself and obtain my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Technology, and not only did I manage to graduate but went on to receive my Masters in Information Systems. I’m now a successful manager at a large manufacturing company.

Do you write full time or part time? How do you structure your day?
I write part time for the time being. My day job is very stressful and I have many long days. I mostly write in the evenings and on weekends mostly. But my desire is to be able to leave my day job to write full time. It will happen, just a matter of time.
Why do you write?
I have found that writing is a great stress relief. If I’m feeling down or had a bad day, I can sit down and write for an hour or two and find that my stress leaves. In fact, I feel more stress if I don’t find the time to write; this has become a wonderful passion where I can spark the minds and imaginations of others.
What are you working on right now / or most recent work?
Currently I’m writing the fourth installment in this series, Secret of the Crystal IV – Forgotten Legacy. Book 1, the main title, releases June 4th of this year. Book 2 Secret of the Crystal II – The Forge is being released September of this year. Book 3 under the same title – Destiny should be ready for release this coming winter.
