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 an 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.
