Marcia Freeman — aka “The Author’s Wife” — is Brian’s full-time partner in the book business. She coordinates all of his events, so if you’d like Brian to make a live or virtual appearance at your library or call in to your book club, send her an e-mail or a Facebook message. Marcia is the first reader whenever Brian completes a new book.  “She’s my best — and most thorough — editor,” he says.  “She catches everything from major plot points to the smallest typo.” In addition to her marketing work, Marcia stays in close touch with Brian’s readers and writes a blog that offers a behind-the-scenes look at the funny, personal side of life in publishing.
