Bryan Donihue is the creator of the World of Incursion, the dark urban fantasy setting for The Knight’s Bane Trilogy. He is also the author of other published works, a game designer, graphic artist, web designer, consultant, trainer, church ministry leader, and multiple-business owner. He is happily married to his wife of over 20 years, Christina, and the foster and adoptive father to six or seven kids, depending on the day. He even sleeps occasionally.
Bryan is currently writing from a top-secret, hidden bunker in Grand Rapids, Michigan. At least that’s what he claims. We know he sits in a basement home office with a brass plaque that reads “Dungeon” affixed over the door.
