Robert Brian published his first novel ‘The Other Realm’ in 2005, releasing ‘Blood Vengeance’ a year later. The beginning of this science fiction series inspired the author to explore new territories.

Personally describing his life as “a tragically hilarious sitcom” caught the attention of an up and coming Euro magazine. Months of crafting what would have been a column following the author’s misadventures in love and life, fell flat when the magazine lost funding. These articles were the beginning of the blog: Rent (minus) Control. The blog inspired a series of three novels under the same name.
