About the author

I work as a writing tutor in my home of Cape Cod. Most of my students are middle grade boys who struggle with critical thinking and analytical writing. Being a tutor gives me an insight into what kids are dealing with these days, which both informs and inspires my stories. 

In 2015 I contributed an article to a small, online publication called Cape Cod Pulse. http://www.capecodpulse.com/co... In college I had a music review featured in a now defunct magazine, the BU Buzz. I also recently collaborated with photographer Ben Allsup on a photo essay about my experience of learning how to fish on his site BenShotMe. http://benshotme.com/selected-...

Eight years ago I won the second place prize for the Lt. James Pafford Essay Contest about “Why I Loved the United States of America.” This landed me a check for 5,000$ at the age of seventeen. I proceeded to spend the money on junk food and concert tickets. Even though my spending habits haven’t changed much, I’m still hopeful that won’t be the last time I make money off my craft.

Update #5 - Radio Interview Tomorrow Jan. 2, 2018

Hi Friends,

Wildball (the new title for the book previously called This River Is Wild) went through several edits over the last few months. Hopefully it is a stronger story now, but it didn't leave much time for coaching sessions.  Now that things have slowed down a little, I will be in touch with readers that purchased the more deluxe packages. 

I'm excited to share that I'll be on the radio station WCAI tomorrow (Wed 1/3/18) with fellow authors Lauren Wolk and Alexandra Speck. We'll be discussing writing on "The Point with Mindy Todd." If you want to catch it live it will be on @ 9am and again @7pm.

Cape listeners can tune in on 90.1 to hear. Or you can listen online at http://capeandislands.org/#str... 

I'll be in touch again about books, shirts, etc as things get closer to spring and send out more updates if there's good news to share. A Happy 2018 to all of you. Thank you again for helping me with this project.

Best,

Brian
