A military brat, Brian Panowich grew up constantly on the move and saw such varied locations as Germany, Rome, East Berlin (before the wall came down), and the Swiss Alps. He was a touring musician for twelve years before settling in East Georgia with his family. He now works full-time as a firefighter.
Brian is the author of Bull Mountain, a southern crime saga from Putnam Books. He has several stories available in print and online collections. Two of his stories, “If I Ever Get Off This Mountain” and “Coming Down The Mountain”, were nominated for a Spinetingler award in 2013. Bull Mountain is his first novel.
