Author Info

Brian lives in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, a small historic town north of Milwaukee and 100 miles north of Chicago. After a long career in pharmaceutical sciences, he opened a closet door in his brain and found some creative ideas hanging in there. His first book, OPUS 19, is a collection of short entertaining stories meant to ease the mind during the pandemic. Brian has written a second book called Rowl Role Roll Your Weigh. This story is an hysterical historical fiction blended with adventure, romance, and pyschosocial entertainment. The main character has a gift, disguised as a problem. He intends to solve it by drawing on his inner strengths, family and friends, and likeable personality. This character who is also named Brian, is a fictional version of me growing up in the 1960s. Endearing Misfortune, published in December 2022 is a sequel to Rowl Role Roll Your Weigh. Magical realism is combined with historical fiction to create endearing adventures of ravens with humans in northern Minnesota
