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.

A sculpture from Jane’s bone yard. I love it and it was in the house for a while until daughter Caitlin won out. “It’s porno, Mom!”

Sculptors have bone yards. We met an artist in England who threw his pieces into the river behind his small studio. An amazing human in Oakland, eighty-something Andre, has her decades of work scattered in her back yard and makes more each day. Stephen De Staebler had the most forlorn, lonely, and literal bone yard in Berkeley. Janey spent some time studying with him and said he was a lovely man.
