In fifth grade, Brian was taken out into the hallway at Sauk Trail elementary school in Park Forest, IL by a very blunt teacher and told, "This special music class is just not for you Brian." Even with his protestations, "....but...but....but... all my friends are in there," the teacher did not relent. Dreams of being the next Daryl Hall, Prince or David Bowie were dashed and he had to quickly find another dream.
It was right then Brian decided to become a writer. It wasn't long until Brian had penned his first masterpiece (in his mind) WILBUR THE BOUNCING BASKETBALL. Brian's writing progressed and he went on to regularly write for music magazines and later focused his efforts on children's picture books, devotional material, ministry and young adult books.
