Short biography
Bryan Strickland, a lifelong Coloradoan, is a man of many talents. He writes, draws, paints, and sings. Well, no, he doesn’t really sing; though he loves music and plays violin and guitar. Writing is his passion and focus. He is a storyteller, a creator of worlds, a lover of characters, and a crafter of memorable scenes and vivid descriptions. He is a student and lover of words; particularly those grandiose and archaic.

His story-crafting occurs not only within the books he writes, but also within home-brew campaigns he’s created for weekly Dungeons & Dragons or Star Wars role playing game sessions. In both his books and his campaigns, there exists a common theme: epic momentum entwined with an inversion of the social lens. This personalized blending provides a unique perspective of what it means to be true to one’s self and to become who we are meant to be. Conversely, through Strickland’s villains, we see that a diversion from the best qualities of humanity can make monsters of anyone.

Strickland’s art ranges from hyper-realistic digital portraits to illustrations, concept art, cartography, and story-boarding. He also sculpts; often producing miniature figurines to represent beloved characters in his home-brew games. Between writing, researching, and creating art; he relaxes his mind and body by playing music, video games, frequenting the gym, or by practicing martial arts under his favorite tree.

He is married to his childhood sweetheart, a relationship spanning over twenty years. She is the glue that holds their lives together; the ink to his quill. Together, they have two children.
