Aside from being an author, Brian Wasson is a husband, father of two boys, and a high school English teacher, who’s learned much more from his students than they ever could’ve hoped to learn from him. Among his proudest classroom accomplishments is winning more than $5,000 through varied grants to put diverse young-adult books into his classroom.

He’s lived in North Carolina all his life, save a summer 2007 stint in Reno, Nevada (it was hot!) He holds a BA in Journalism and Masters in English literature. He considered attending a Ph.D. program for about a week.

His debut novel, SEVEN MINUTES IN CANDYLAND, is slated to hit the shelves in the Fall of 2023. If you love candy, you’ll probably love the book. If you don’t, you’ll probably like it anyway.
