Brian Farrey was born and raised in Wisconsin, land of dairy products and bratwurst. Although he’d always dabbled as a writer, he became serious about writing in 1983, when he discovered Doctor Who and started writing novellas based on the show (today, we would call this “fan fiction”). To this day, he is still a rabid fan of Doctor Who, and his secret dream is to be the first American to write an episode of the TV show. (It’s unlikely, but you gotta dream.)
He has slaved away in retail, been a local TV producer, managed a theater company, sold books, coordinated author events, and worked as a publicist. He is currently an editor, and acquires educational resources for a small but feisty press in the Midwest.
In the early part of the twenty-first century, he moved to Minnesota, where he has lived ever since. He currently resides in St. Paul with his husband and their needy cat, Meowzebub.
