Brian Edkins was born in New Orleans, Louisiana and spent his childhood there. He purchased his first novel at the age of six and quickly learned the joys of fiction reading. Upon graduation from high school, he spent three years in the U. S. Army. He received an Honorable discharge and returned home to attend college.
After graduation, Brian began traveling for business and spent the next thirty-five years traveling the globe. By the time he had retired, he had traveled to every continent in the world except Antarctica. Brian has often credited much of his inspiration to his vast travels and time spent with many inspirational families, friends and those willing to share the stories of their villages, towns, and countries.
Brian has written four fiction novels (Hollow Wings, Waltzing with the Dark Angel, Sapphire, and his latest book The Mark). He is currently writing his fifth fiction novel, Tarot, the second novel in the Jack Kohl Detective Series, which is scheduled for release in the 4th quarter of 2018.
