Hi. I’m Brian. I write. This blog began as a way to chronicle my attempt to publish my first book after 10+ years as a reporter and editor at various newspapers and magazines in Canada, the United States, and New Zealand. And you know what? I finished the damned thing. You can buy it here.
I’ve since written (but not quite finished) two more novels. I don’t know if they’ll ever see the light of day, so in the meantime I’ll use this blog to share my thoughts on other stuff I’m into, such as sailing, tennis, music, baseball, movies, travel, media and communication studies, and whatever else happens to tickle my fancy at any given moment. And oh yeah, I’m freelancing full-time now, so if you need some writing or editing help, e-mail me at bfhartz (at) gmail.com.
