Originally from Glendale, CA, Brendan Walsh attended the College of Wooster and earned a degree in English Literature. Having graduated in May of 2017, he has returned to Glendale, living with his parents and actor twin brother. When he isn’t writing, you can probably find him at work (lame), watching a movie, reading comic books, drinking coffee or thinking about what new stories to write. His first novel, The Raven Gang, book one of Noble Animals, was originally self-published in February of 2017, but has since found a home with a publisher, and it will likely become a quintet. His new novel, Immortale, is a Gaiman/Pratchett-inspired urban fantasy with a fun and silly enough world to earn itself some sequels as well. In addition to novels, he has had short stories appear in Aphelion and Page&Spine magazines.
If he can’t make a full-time career out of novel-writing, Brendan Walsh hopes to get a job at DC Comics as a writer or an editor, or at least something creative enough so he doesn’t have to turn his brain off its story-juices. Besides work, he is currently interested in the sequel to The Raven Gang, titled The Serpent League, some other short stories here and there, and the start of what Patrick Rothfuss calls a BFF (Big Fat Fantasy). This long high fantasy project is already time consuming in both typing and world-building, but with the same passion as he completed his other novels and the unyielding support from his brother Robert, there is no chance the project won’t get finished! His biggest creative influences are Ray Bradbury, Kurt Vonnegut, Neil Gaiman, Stephen King and Gerard Way, not to mention all the comic book artist and writers as well as movie writers and directors that have so potently influenced both his imagination and passion.
