Larry Brill has been a storyteller since, well, forever. He began making up stories as soon as he was old enough to tell a fib. It carried him through school and into the world of TV news as an anchor and reporter.
Fudging the facts was never an option as a journalist, so Larry began writing fiction and has unleashed his quirky outlook on life and offbeat brand of humor on the fans of his novels from his home base in Austin, Texas.

But spilling out words, lots of words, even if they're bad words, usually gets me to the point where some nugget worth keeping, or some direction develops that inspires me to push on and generate the good stuff.(less)
