Since 2000 Brian Sweany has been the Director of Acquisitions for audiobook publisher Recorded Books. Prior to that he edited cookbooks and computer manuals and saved a major pharmaceutical company from being crippled by the Y2K bug. Brian has a BS in English from Eastern Michigan University, from which he graduated magna cum laude in 1995. He's a retired semi-professional student, with stop-overs at Wabash College (the all-male school that fired Ezra Pound from its faculty for banging a hooker), Marian University (the former all-female school founded by Franciscan nuns that if you don't count Brian's expulsion has fired no one of consequence and is relatively hooker-free), and Indiana University (via a high school honors course he has no recollection of ever attending). Brian has spent most of my life in the Midwest and now lives near Indianapolis with his wife, three children and a neurotic Husky/Border mix named Hank.
