Ha­ley’s Comet Brett T. Brown

DREAM TEEN Magazine - - Content - By Tar­ran Carter

Writ­ing has al­ways been a part of Brett Brown. At four years old, he was ram­bunc­tious--an­i­mated, and would write down all of his of­fenses. I asked him who in­spired him, He said his mom. She en­cour­aged him to write. Although he has never been drawn to sports or TV, writ­ing be­came ev­ery­thing to him. Brett is the au­thor of Har­ley’s Comet.

Brett is a leader, he refers to the time his fam­ily re­lo­cated to Cleveland Ohio. “These were dif­fi­cult years,“he said. How­ever, he did not suc­cumb to the on­slaughts of drugs or the streets of Cleveland Ohio. In these ar­du­ous years, his out­let was writ­ing. Brett says that life will al­ways throw you a curve ball; no mat­ter what you do in life, be your­self. Never let any­one tell you that you are not good. His mantra is,“Take it in stride.” No mat­ter how bad the sit­u­a­tion may ap­pear, take it in stride.

It took courage and tenac­ity to com­plete the book. Two years later it was pub­lished. Barnes and No­bles, a lead­ing book store, now has his book for sale. Brett mar­kets his book through so­cial me­dia, and lo­cal busi­nesses has fea­tured him for book sign­ing. He has even been on Fox News.
