Brian was born and raised in Seattle in 1959. He grew up in the town of Mount Lake Terrace, a small suburb north of the city. Brian, being the youngest, had two siblings, his eldest brother, Mike and sister, Pam. School was challenging, as Brian suffers with Dyslexia, a learning disability that affects 1 in 15 Americans. But that didn't stop Brian, as he was nicknamed "bookworm" in school because he always had his nose in a book.

Brian received his MBA in 2010 in Business, and is now a full time author, living his lifelong dream of writing science fiction books. He enjoys his off time, being married to his seventh grade sweetheart, Diana Rose now for fourteen years. She has been by his side, and continues to supports his writing. Brian says that without her encouragement, his dream would never have become a reality. They now live in Marysville, Washington, and enjoy three wonderful kids and six grandchildren. They range from ages three years all the way up to nearly thirteen. Jacob who is the eldest, Amanda, Donita, Carmela, Adam, and Ariyah, and he says they are so special and great to have around.

It's Brian’s hope that through his writing he will fill hearts with joy to readers all over the world, and spark their imaginations.

    After picking up a copy of this book, I started reading it. I soon discovered that I didn't want to put it down until I finished it. Now I can't wait for book 2 to be released. Please hurry.
    The story is amazing, full of action, suspense, and it even has romance. This book has something for everyone. Strongly recommend this read.

    Two different writing styles

    The one style seems okay, the other style feels like it was rushed.

    The story is strange, and not in a good way.

    I received this copy through Goodreads First Reads.

    I really liked this until just before the end when it got super unrealistic. I know what he was trying to do with the Terrains being naturally receptical but I needed something extra when they got onto a spaceship and knew what to do. The suddenness of "John" and Kate made me roll my eyes. The two bully bikers' sudden change made me roll my eyes. He must not know any bikers because they are truly all really sweet grandpas. ;) Haha Joking. I also dislike the sudden end and ALL THE TYPOS. Did someone read this before being sent to publishing? Didn't feel like it. I wanted to mark all the mistakes and send it back. haha

    Good story though. Good pace. I would like to see how the whole story arc is resolved because nothing really was resolved-especially since they screwed up their timeline. Good sci-fi mixed with fantasy. Good background. Good plot. Good mix of characters. 

    Up to the last few chapters, I was going with four stars. The last few chapters would've gotten three stars. It feels unfinished and now I'll just be wondering what happened.
