Until 2011, Douglas Brunt was CEO of Authentium, Inc., an Internet security company. He now writes full time and is currently working on his fourth novel. A Philadelphia native, he lives in New York with his wife Megyn Kelly and their three children.
Doug’s new novel will be released on May 30th, and is available for pre-order now. For media and press enquiries please use the contact page.
The first thing I do after I’ve finished reading a novel is to flip back to the beginning and read the author’s first sentence again.
All novelists try to set the trajectory for the book with the first paragraphs of the first chapter. As a novelist myself, I love the opportunity to write that first sentence.
Once readers of my books have completed the journey with me, if they come back around to re-read the first sentence, they should have a greater understanding of it.
Doug appeared with Megyn on Don Imus to chat about his new novel Ghosts of Manhattan.
