American science fiction author, Pierce Brown lived in seven different states growing up, which may have given him the edge needed to have a vivid imagination with which to entertain himself. He spent his childhood doing the normal kid things such as building forts and setting traps for friends in the woods, or in the desert. So, after graduating from Pepperdine University, he had plenty of pretend episodes to transfer into his first novel. He lived in his professor's garage where he wrote his first novel, Red Rising.
Brown majored in political science and had several jobs before becoming a true author. He had a variety of jobs in politics, was a page at NBC, worked as an errand person on the Disney lot at ABC, and was an aid with a US Senate campaign, which he says gave new meaning to the term sleep deprivation. He now lives in Los Angeles, where he spins tales of spaceships, wizards, ghouls, and many bizarre things.
Pierce Brown's works include: the Red Rising series.......Red Rising, 2014, Golden Son, 2015, Morning Star, 2016, Iron Gold, 2018, and Dark Age, 2019.
