Author Biography

Brian L. MacLearn

Brian was born in Ottumwa, Iowa. He graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 1984. He is an avid reader, poetry writer, and song lyric writer. “Remember Me” is his second novel. His debut novel, “Our Heart” was a 2011 award finalist at Readers Favorite and received four out of five stars from Clarion ForeWord Reviews. Brian’s taste in literature is as diverse as the subject matter of his stories and songs. A favorite saying of his, “I was born with an over-active empathy gland,” inspires him to write with believable emotion and meaningful characters. He is currently working on his next novel “Ridicule.”

“Remember Me” is a story that most of us have thought about. What if I had a second chance to live my life over? Equipped with the knowledge of the past and the technology to greatly impact the world…what would you do? Would you help others, or only help yourself?

Brian’s love of writing started in Junior High and has been an important part of his life. His poetry has been published, and many of his song lyrics have been put to music and recorded. Brian lives in Waverly, Iowa. He has two daughters and three granddaughters.

Did you ever wonder what if . . . I could live my life over again and know what I know now? Andrew gets his chance in “Remember Me” by Brian MacLearn. The date is May 22, 2010, the place is Amy and Andrew Johnson’s backyard with a thunderstorm very near, the time is the day before the big party for Andrew’s 50th birthday. Andrew doesn’t finish mowing the backyard, when the storm hits and the ground shakes and nothing will ever be the same again. Andrew has been swept into a worm hole and now finds himself in 1985. He is alone, confused and very scared. He changes his name to Peter Warren and spends the next 25 years trying to make the world a better place than it was the first time, for his country, his beloved Amy and his family. His goal is to survive until 2010 and find the same worm and return to those he left behind.

Brian MacLearn has taken us to a place we all imagine ‘reliving our lives’. As I read this book I could easily put myself in Peter’s shoes and travel with him back to the past. It is a time to remember and reflect on September 11th, Black Monday and life in the 80s but even more than that it is a time to look into a man’s heart and soul. “Remember Me” has romance, suspense, intrigue, science, God and characters that become our friends and enemies. Brian has a best seller with “Remember Me” It should top the lists for a very long time. I highly recommend this book.
