About Brian O'Sullivan
Knowing he didn't want to spend the rest of his life on the green felt of a poker table, Brian settled in LA and started writing screenplays. He'd always been a writer, and enjoyed the allure of Hollywood. However, it's often about who you know in Hollywood, and Brian's screenplays never made their way into the right hands.
So Brian started dedicating himself to writing novels...and the rest is history. His fifth novel, The Bay Area Butcher, will be released in December of 2020, following the runaway success of The Puppeteer, The Patsy, The Bartender, and most recently Revenge at Sea. He's also written a satirical short story titled My Meeting with Trump.
Brian splits his time between the Bay Area and Los Angeles. He's a responsible writer in the former and a bit of a troublemaker in the latter.
