Who is Brian lelas?

Brian Lelas has been writing books and short stories since he was in school. He finished his first novel when he was only 17 years old, having been writing it on and off since the age of 12. This remarkable discipline to complete projects has allowed him to write over one hundred short stories and five novels in the decade that followed.

Brian's two short story collections, "Dead Cartography" and "Phantoms Doused in Night" cover multiple genres and styles. His first published novel, "Tome" was published in 2015. A modern sci-fi mystery, it was followed up with a sequel, “Resolver” in 2018.

As a full-time Video Game Designer, Brian works on complex interactive systems with a highly talented group at DIGIT Game Studios. He currently leads the Narrative team on the global smash-hit mobile title, “Star Trek: Fleet Command.”

Brian lives in Chapelizod, a village in Dublin, Ireland, with his wife and three sons. He spends his free time playing designer board games, reading books he wishes he'd written first and watching Futurama. He is a former amateur Karting champion and avid sports fan.
