Brendan Halpin—Please Consider Reading His Fine Novels

Brendan Halpin is one of America’ s leading novelists. If you’ve not heard of him, where have you been?

Brendan’s most recent title, Forever Changes, is a compelling story.

This is how Brendan describes Forever Changes

“Forever Changes is a novel about life, death, math, and Love (the emotion and the band).  It’s the story of a high school senior with Cystic Fibrosis whose unlikely friendship with her calculus teacher, who claims to have been the guitarist for Love, helps her to come to terms with her own mortality.  But it’s not about dying–it’s about living with the knowledge that you’re going to die. Which is really everyone’s problem; it’s just that it’s a more immediate issue for some people than others. ” 

Brendan is, as I am, a native of Cincinnati, Ohio. You might think, based on this blog, that all anyone from Cincinnati can do is spend hours of his life working on a blog that does not earn a single penny. 


Brendan Halpin, one of America’s most beloved authors, has published seven books.  You can click here to visit Brendan’s blog and see all his titles.  You can poke around his blog and get a sense of his work. Brendan has written both adult and young adult titles. He’s also written non-fiction. It Takes A Worried Man is a well-reviewed account of Brendan’s late wife’s fight against breast cancer.

Give Brendan a shot. Though he has some success getting his work published, making a buck can, in fact, be a harder thing than getting published. The hours and thought that Brendan puts into his writing also have great value as man cannot live on bread alone. 

Brendan is currently a teacher in Boston.
