Bradley P. Beaulieu

Goodreads Author

Member Since
September 2008


Bradley P. Beaulieu began writing his first fantasy novel in college, but life eventually intervened. As time went on, though, Brad realized that his love of writing and telling tales wasn't going to just slink quietly into the night. The drive to write came back full force in the early 2000s, at which point Brad dedicated himself to the craft, writing and learning under the guidance of writers like Nancy Kress, Joe Haldeman, Tim Powers, Holly Black, and many more.

Brad and his novels have garnered many accolades including two Hotties—the Debut of the Year and Best New Voice—on Pat's Fantasy Hotlist, a Gemmell Morningstar Award nomination for The Winds of Khalakovo and more:

* Top Ten Book and Debut of the Year for 2011 on Pat's Fantasy Hotl

A Desert Torn Asunder Cover Reveal!

With A Desert Torn Asunder, the finale of The Song of the Shattered Sands, releasing next summer, the art team over at DAW Books have been working hard to deliver a standout cover. Micah Epstein reprises his role as artist, with Adam Auerbach providing the art direction. I think what they’ve come up with is quite stunning.
