A Welcome from Brian Brennan

I’ve named this site “Brian Brennan’s Life Stories” because I make my living as a writer and public speaker, and biographical profiles constitute the bulk of my professional output. You can read about me in the “About” section of the site, here and here.

The main purpose of the site is to shine a light on some of those colourful individuals who have piqued my curiosity over the course of my career as a journalist, broadcaster, historian and author. A secondary aim is to add my voice to the discussions on a variety of topics that are already taking place in the public square. Additionally, I use it to promote my own published writings and the work of writers I admire. You can find my most recent blog posts here. To receive notifications about new posts, I invite you to enter your email address in the Free Subscription box on the right. I post about once or twice a month, and I promise I will never send you spam!

Excerpts from some of my published profiles are featured in the section of the site named “Life Stories.”  A link to my Facebook page is included in the sidebar on the right. The sidebar also includes a keyword search box for my blog posts (type in “Conrad Black” and see what appears), and a link to Facts & Opinions, an online journal to which I contribute occasional columns and feature stories. My latest contribution to Facts & Opinions is a weekly arts column called Brief Encounters.

You can read about my books and other writings in the “Writings” section here. The info on my public speaking activities is on this page. Aside from the biographies, I am also working on a semi-autobiographical novel – working title Emigrant – about coming to Canada. You can read an excerpt by clicking here.

There’s a section in the site for Your Questions and one for Your Comments. If you don’t find the answers you seek, there’s a place where you can Contact Me.

I hope you enjoy the site. Thanks for stopping by!
