About Brian Eden

Perhaps when I have written a respectable list of books (see Other Books by the Author), someone will write this page, but for now I guess it is up to me. I will do my best to remain humble and keep any exaggerations to a minimum. My career as an author (and that is already an exaggeration, sorry), is like the bread of a sandwich in which the contents are 36 years of uninspiring participation in the aerospace/defense industry. During this tenure I received one citation of whereasAfs from the Mayor of Los Angeles, one plastic public relations award and a couple of cheaply-framed certifi cates of appreciation or other such certifi cate-in-lieu-of-a-raise awards. Not much to show for 36 years. On the front end of my writing career (between 7-14 years) I published my own sports page, did a respectable imitation of the handicap section of the Daily Racing Form (my father and uncle were horse players who broke me in early) and almost wrote a few short stories. When the time came to select a college, I opted for engineering school instead of journalism only because of the undesired prospects of studying Shakespeare, poetry and the like. What a mistake! It turned out studying electro-magnetic fi elds was even more boring. I left the aerospace industry early, convinced that one more certifi cate wasn't worth another 10 years and joined the ranks of struggling authors. I was always a better observer than a doer (management translation - a better staff guy then line guy) and that proved helpful since both of my books are based on observations, the first directly and the second indirectly, or at an angle.
