About the Author
Brendan O'Brien grew up in Davenport, Iowa but has lived in various parts of the country, including Missouri, Minnesota, Maryland, and California. His experience in these places and travels abroad have produced a unique lens through which he sees the world. He uses his writing to focus attention on oft-overlooked issues and attempt to amplify the voices of those seldom heard. He can usually be found hiking, with his head buried in a book, or looking for the spiciest local food.
