My Story

It all started in a small town in the Pacific Northwest - Oregon, to be precise. Nestled in the heart of a valley, surrounded on all sides by towering pines, Clatskanie was home for the first sixteen years of my life. It was there, where thunderstorms told of adventures and mountains whispered legends, that I grew to love the power of a good story.

After three long years, I independently published my debut novel, Love and the Sea and Everything in Between. Prior to its release in November of 2018, it won the 2016 Wattys Award hosted by Wattpad. Since its release, it's been the recipient of a Reader's Favorite 5-Star Review as well as a finalist in the Reader's Favorite 2019 Awards and won the Eric Hoffer Award in 2019.

"Love and the Sea and Everything in Between by Brian McBride... draws the reader into an unforgiving ride of heartache, first love, spiritual reckoning, and personal blame. I actually stopped breathing more than once before completing this book. Wow. Just wow."
