About the Author
In the process of writing his family's story, Brian uncovered the fascinating past of his parents - two incredible athletes with amazing accomplishments. Brian discovered that his mother Carolyn, completely unbeknownst to him, changed the face of girls' basketball in Iowa forever with her quick first step, dead-eye shot and fiery personality.
As his mother fell ill in 2008, Brian's urgency to continue his work increased. He visited the scenes of many of his parents' triumphs and heard their stories - many of which are shared in the book Maynard 8 Miles. Carolyn passed away before the publication of this book but the experience of learning her story has helped her live more vividly in his memory.
Brian is 50 years old and resides in Madison, WI with his wife Char and 3 children: Brianna, Alex and Brooke. He lives 15 minutes from his father Glenn, for whom this truly incredible story is "no big deal."
Brian is a first time author, an IT entrepreneur and a former collegiate athlete with a passion for family, teaching and coaching. He received his BA from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, where he also played Division III NCAA baseball.
