Today on my blog I welcome author Brian Paone to discuss A Lie in Books.
Can you tell me a bit about yourself?
I was born and raised in the Salem, Massachusetts area. I have, thus far, published three novels: a memoir about being friends with a drug-addicted rock star, “Dreams are Unfinished Thoughts”; a macabre cerebral-horror novel, “Welcome to Parkview”; and a time-travel romance novel, “Yours Truly, 2095”—all three novels are available in paperback, eBook, and audiobook. Along with my three novels, I have published two short stories: “Outside of Heaven,” which is featured in the anthology, A Matter of Words; “The Whaler’s Dues,” which is featured in the anthology, A Journey of Words; and an upcoming third story, “Anesthetize (or A Dream Played in Reverse on Piano Keys),” which will be featured in the anthology, A Haunting of Words. I’m also a vocalist and have released seven albums with my four bands: Yellow #1, Drop Kick Jesus, The Grave Machine, and Transpose. I’m married to a US Navy nurse and we have four children. I’m also a police officer and have been working in law enforcement since 2002. I’m a self-proclaimed roller coaster junkie, a New England Patriots fanatic, and my favorite color is burnt orange.
