Today I’m going to tell you about my real-life friend, Bobby Brimmer. We met years ago while working in hell. He’s rad. Really. He’s funny, completely inappropriate, and he knows Krav Maga. That makes him one fitted suit and five martinis away from being Archer.
Now let me tell you a little story about an important conversation.
One morning years ago, Bobby, myself, and some other coworkers sat in the Burbank Airport waiting for a flight so we could attend some stupid meeting about how they could make hell hotter. The flight was delayed, so while waiting, we chatted about what we really wanted to do in life (because clearly getting on that plane to go sit in a conference room for hours, during which time nothing important would be accomplished, wasn’t it). Guess what my answer was? A writer. At the time I was more focused on non-fiction books pertaining to my degrees. Bobby said I should take all the fun stuff from that and create a bitchin’ female fiction character. And I did. It was my first novel (um, but it sucked. However, I am in the process of a total rewrite, and expect it will be out later this year). As you know, I went on to leave my position of recruiting people to work in hell, and wrote my second book. But, in the interim between that airport conversation and quitting time (which was long), Bobby was my friend and writing buddy. We entered flash fiction contests, traded stories for feedback, and bitched about writer’s block and the publishing industry in general.
Why am I telling you this? Because Bobby left hell too (although he was smart enough to keep himself in the loop as a consultant), and today his novel, G.H.O.S.T. Teams (Book 1) Magic, is available on Amazon (I already bought my copy). It’s sort of like Men in Black, but instead of aliens they police vampires, werewolves, trolls, and other creatures. Congratulations dude.
You guys can hit Bobby up on Facebook here. And also, today you can ask Bobby anything in the comments section, and he will answer. So if you’d like to ask any questions about his book, or who would win in a fight to the death between Jean Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren, then please do.
Oh, by the way ladies, did I mention that he’s single?
