Brennan's debut novel, Fathers' Day was published in 2018 and won recognition from the Indie Book Awards and Writer's Digest.

Prior to dropping out to write Fathers' Day, he lived the predictable life of an emerging author: field picker, garbage man, barn builder, blues musician, art teacher and creative director writing copy for national brands and why you need them – fresh breath, clear skin, a great lawn. Encouraged by readers and the industry, he is at work on his second and third novels. He has attended Kutztown, Temple and Stanford Universities and lives in Northern California with his wife and two daughters.

We’re rollin across B.C. in the summer and the top down and the radio on and the wind and I can hardly hear a thing she says.

She’s shouting and trying to light her smoke and the wind is winning and she’s been trying to light this fat screw job of a spliff for five minutes. Three joints into the day, she gets it lit bending way under the dash in some weird-ass Cirque de Soleil po...

Russo lets Hank off leash for a weekend and what could go wrong? It was just as good this second time I read it. You'll get to know and love the foibles of the vividly rendered characters as well as Hank does.
