I've spent my life reading and always wanted to write. About ten years ago, I started One Night in Bridgeport, a legal thriller. Bridgeport is now available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon, and in all other e-reader formats on Smashwords.

Writing that story opened the door to writing. I've since written about 45 short stories -- with two stories published by The First Line and two at www.toasted-cheese.com.

Weed Therapy, about a man's journey to find happiness, is my next novel ready to be published. And, after that, I have three partially completed novels ready for my attention.

In my other life, I'm an attorney. I have two teenagers about ready to start college. I cook, bake, garden ... and read.

For ten years, I really didn't have it. Wrote two novels, dozens of short stories. I always seemed to have ideas and the ability to write them. Now, I'm stuck. Three half completed novels and no ability to make progress on them. And no ideas for any short stories either. Got any ideas?(less)

The third book from Kevin Brennan that I've enjoyed tremendously. Like the others, Town Father is another story about regular people put in slightly offbeat situations -- no so offbeat, it strains the limits of credibility, but offbeat enough to thro ...more

An excellent read -- the kind of book that I desperately wanted to finish because I wanted to see what would happen, while desperately not wanting it to end because I wanted to keep reading about these characters.

A co-worker recommended this book. I checked it out on Amazon. I have this unfortunate habit of looking at the one star reviews to see why people don't like it. What struck me was how many people didn't like it because it was too depressing. Perfect ...more
