Brendan is a author, musician and teacher. He published his first novel, THE VIOLIN CONSPIRACY (Anchor Books), a GMA Book Club Pick, the riveting story of a young Black musician who discovers that his old family fiddle is actually a priceless Stradivarius: when it's stolen on the eve of the world's most prestigious classical music competition, he risks everything to get it back. In 2023, Brendan published his second novel, SYMPHONY OF SECRETS (Anchor Books), about a music historian who discovers that the world's greatest composer may have stolen the music from a neurodivergent Black woman - and the powers-that-be will do anything to silence the historian. Brendan is now at work on his third novel, to be published in early 2025.

 "The Moth Project" - a multi-media production, music album, and book marries art, science, and an innate connection to the environment. Crafted by Peter Kiesewalter, the NYC based artist behind the East Village Opera Company, "The Moth Project" showcases how artists and musicians are stepping into the spotlight, collaborating with scientists to amplify the call of climate change in a captivating manner, filling the gaps where scientific data falls short.
