By-Line: Only a Fool can rule the world.

Brendan Carroll spent his first fourteen years running free through the deep woods of the East Texas Pine Forests. During the early part of his life, he had the great fortune to live next door to his grandparents on a small family subsistence farm where he learned about nature, farming and story-telling from his grandfather.

Simon Thanks for seeking me out, Brendan.

You are definitely welcome, Dustin!


Brendan Carroll Currently working on The Red Cross of Gold XVII:. Cross Purposes, getting it ready for release sometime before the end of May. The work is bogged down due to editing problems and the fact that I'm in the middle of making a move from Central Texas to deep East Texas. I just want to get moved and settled so I can get back to work on my favorite thing: Writing!
