Brian Paul Brawdy began his acting career as a NY Undercover Police Criminal Investigator soon after the debut of Michael Mann's Miami Vice. "I was drawn to it in a visceral way." Because "Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How" of any investigation is taught Day 1 in "Kindergarten for Cops," he quickly became a writer as well. "Slug lines" are the way of doing business when it comes to any testimony. It's all about gathering evidence, compiling a compelling backstory, and "closing" a Grand Jury / Criminal Trial by placing devastatingly clear pictures in people's minds. As Brian sees it, "If your words don't strike a chord in their guts, all you got is noise!" Much later, as a TV reporter for CBS Chicago, he employed the very same tactics, live or taped. Now as a full-time storyteller, it all dovetails. Screenplays,...

God bless the J.K. Rowling's of the world that can write anytime, anywhere. I was not one of them. I needed quiet. And, raising three kids by birth and a few kids of the heart, life was a little too chaotic and a lot too noisy to spew out a Harry Potter rival. Having a vivid imagination, a wicked sense of humor, and a knack for the vernacular, I knew some day, perhaps in my old age, I'd be the writer I always wanted to be. I've always lived an adventurous life. Never afraid to try something new, not able to resist a dare, and always one to rise to the challenge of "Don't tell me I can't do it, because I will prove you wrong," much to the chagrin of my family and friends, in my 50's I walked from Canada to Mexico as a homeless awareness fundraiser. At 63 I decided to finally live by one of my favorite quotes from...
