About the Author


Brian Malanaphy

Brian Malanaphy is a native of Brooklyn, New York. He holds a BA in English and Creative Writing from SUNY College at Purchase. He resides in Hawaii and sometimes he does sit, on the beach, under those swaying coconut trees. Other times he’s busy writing, contemplating, and squeezing out meaning from the effervescent world.


The novel is the only form that can deeply get into a character's head and explore the complex relationships between that protagonist and those in his or her orbit.
