WILLIAM F BROWN – ABOUT ME
I live in Florida. As a former Vice President of the real estate subsidiary of a Fortune 500 corporation, I was able to travel widely in the US and abroad, to places including Russia, Israel, Egypt, Germany, Poland, Holland, Belgium. France, Spain, Portugal, The Czech Republic, Slovakia, Croatia, Italy, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Latvia, Estonia, and others. My wife and I love traveling and meeting people. A native of Chicago, I earned a BA in History and Russian Area Studies and a Master of Urban Planning degree from the University of Illinois. (Go Illini!)
I’ve been active in politics (I had the stupidity to run and the misfortune to win a -year seat on a County Board of Supervisors) (more hard time than you’d get for armed robbery, car theft, or embezzlement in most states!) and active in numerous civic organizations. I served in the US Army and was a company commander and drug counselor. (The only two places in the country that teach leadership and organizational management are the Boy Scouts and the Army) When I’m not writing, I like to play golf (usually poorly) paint landscapes in oil or acrylics and running 5Ks. (slower every year).
I’m the author of seven mystery and international suspense novels, with over 850 Kindle Reviews averaging 4.5 Stars. They have been published n hardback, paperback, and more recently in Kindle E-books. Five of my novels are also now available on Audible audio books. In addition to the novels, I’ve written four award-winning screenplays, three of which are adaptations of my novels . They’ve placed First in the suspense category of Final Draft,
My wife and I have traveled extensively in Germany, Russia, the Caribbean, England, Ireland, Scotland, Poland, Switzerland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Italy, Mexico, Austria, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia, Spain, Portugal, Holland, Egypt, and Israel.
