According to the bio on his website: "Bryan Cassiday graduated from UCLA with a BA degree in English. He worked for the federal government for fifteen years before retiring. He now writes thrillers and horror stories full-time. He lives in California.
Not a native Californian, he grew up in Stamford, Connecticut. He has been writing stories and novels and sending them out to publishers since the age of twenty-one. After receiving (literally) thousands of rejections from publishers and agents, he recently decided to forego the traditional New York publishing houses and self-publish his works."
