Episode 193 – With Brian McClellan

On June 3, 2014, in Podcast, by Patrick Hester

TheCrimsonCampaignIn episode 193 of the Functional Nerds Podcast, Patrick Hester and John Anealio talk with author Brian McClellan.  

About Brian:

Brian lives in Cleveland, Ohio with his wife, two dogs, a cat, and between 6,000 and 60,000 honey bees (depending on the time of year).

He began writing on Wheel of Time role playing websites at fifteen. Encouraged toward writing by his parents, he started working on short stories and novellas in his late teens. He went on to major in English with an emphasis on creative writing at Brigham Young University. It was here he met Brandon Sanderson, who encouraged Brian’s feeble attempts at plotting and characters more than he should have.

Brian continued to study writing not just as an art but as a business and was determined this would be his life-long career. He attended Orson Scott Card’s Literary Bootcamp in 2006. In 2008, he received honorable mention in the Writers of the Future Contest.

In November 2011, The Powder Mage Trilogy sold at auction to Orbit Books. Book one, Promise of Blood, is out now from Orbit Books. Book two, The Crimson Campaign, is due out in May of 2014.
