Three brothers. One Great Depression. One dreadful yet righteous war. Their lives shifted from a rural northern Minnesota upbringing to going their separate ways: to California, the skies over Germany, and the jungles of Leyte.

Back home, their widowed mother had yet to recover from the loss of the family farm to the Tax Man. Her boys gone, dependent on their income, and haunted by premonitions, she faced the torment of incessant worries.

One brother could not get into the military and settled for the shipyards; two went to war. Depression and war forever altered the Peterson family.

Paper Doll is a true story in novel form, telling the fascinating stories which added to the American tapestry during extraordinary times.

About the Author

Brian discovered when he was young that he enjoyed writing, but it wasn’t until he was in high school that he realized that he had a gift for drawing readers into his stories. Edgar Allan Poe was an early influence; when he saw the reactions of high school classmates when they read his Poe-like stories, he was hooked on writing fiction.

After a TV/Film and writing education at Oral Roberts University, Brian wrote a number of feature-length screenplays; a film short has been produced at this time.

Having written commentary for a mid-sized newspaper and an online site for more than a decade, Brian felt the tug back into fiction. His first novel, Children of the Sun, is a story that goes back to his younger days, when he imagined space aliens coming to claim him as one of their own while other aliens tried to kill him. His vivid imagination led to him writing down many of his ideas, some of which grew into his full-length writings many years after they were first recorded in a notebook.

With a range that runs from sci-fi to psychological thrillers to comedy, Brian does not feel the constraints of a specific genre. The fun is in the story and the characters. Over time, for your reading enjoyment, keep an eye out for what is WrittenByBWP.
