Welcome to the World of B.R. Snow

If you’re looking for great books that will make you think, laugh, and help you deal with the increasingly crazy world we live in, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve been writing part-time for several years, averaging about a book a year, but I’m currently transitioning to life as a full-time author. As such, I’m looking forward to dramatically increasing my output. I’m also very much looking forward to leaving the grind of corporate life in the rear view mirror. And it definitely won’t be a mirror that says “Objects may be closer than they appear.”

On my site, you’ll find all the information you need about what my books are about, sample chapters, and links that will take you to the place where you can buy them. Yes, I am overtly suggesting that you buy my books. They’re very reasonably priced and I’m sure you, like countless other readers, will enjoy them. I like weaving multiple story lines together and my characters, like most of us, are damaged and prone to use adult language from time to time. And I think you’ll find that I pay close attention to make sure that my characters act and sound like real people even though they come directly from “Imagination Central” that resides inside, and seems to often control, this brain I’ve been given.

So welcome to my site! And to paraphrase Bogey, I hope this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Please feel free to subscribe to my site by entering your email address and you will receive updates about my writing and whenever I publish a new blog post. And if you want to ask a question, give me a hard time, or just say hi, please feel free to email me. It may take me a while to respond, but I will eventually get back to you.

Be well, my friends!

Bernie

Doc White wakes up in a Las Vegas hotel suite a very confused man with a massive tequila hangover. As he reflects on the previous day’s events that included his wife walking out on him and with their joint savings, the return of the voice in his head, his subsequent loss of another $150,000 at the blackjack tables, and then waking up next to a total stranger, Doc’s already damaged life has taken another serious dip downward. In order to pay off his new debt, Doc is forced to do something he vowed years ago never to do again; take a corporate job. Doc’s new boss, an octogenarian Chinese casino owner with a taste for curling and political intrigue, along with the return of an old love help to reenergize Doc as he tries to rebuild his life in Sin City. At a major crossroads, Doc draws on the expertise of Merlin, his coke-addled, phobic colleague from a prior life and Summerman, a part-time ghost who is certain he can help Doc deal with the voice in his head. By the time this initial installment in B.R. Snow’s Damaged Posse series is wrapped up, Doc, Merlin, and Summerman have joined forces and are armed and ready to wreak havoc on the bad guys as well as themselves.
