Bryan Donihue

Early in his life, Bryan decided that he would try as many different jobs as possible. He started in fast food and has worked in sales (retail, used car, business-to-business, door-to-door, credit card processing, vacuum cleaner, and firearms). Bryan has also been a security guard, police officer, and armored car vault manager. And he was a youth pastor. Eventually, he decided to take the “easy path” and become a writer. He was an idiot. Writing is not easy, but people seemed to like his stories, so he kept telling them.

Bryan is a published author (fiction and non-fiction), tabletop game designer, graphic artist, web designer, consultant, trainer, ministry leader, and multiple-business owner. He is also happily married to his wife of over 20 years, Christina, and father to six or seven kids, depending on the day. He even sleeps occasionally.

Bryan is known for his urban fantasy series, The Knight’s Bane Trilogy, and the tabletop RPG, Hidden Worlds: Incursion.
