IMG_0272Brian Koukol, raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles, now makes his home among the salt breezes and open spaces of San Luis Obispo County on California’s Central Coast.

A lifelong battle with muscular dystrophy has informed the majority of his fiction, which is written with the aid of voice recognition software.

Despite his challenges, Brian maintains an adventurous spirit, a wicked sense of humor, and a willingness to delve into the darker sides of the human experience with his work. There is no genre he won’t explore, but science fiction remains a lifelong favorite.
