Rhett is a Sci-fi/Fantasy author currently living in Stamford, Connecticut. He is represented by Dystel & Goderich out of NYC and his published works include books in the Amazon Bestselling Circuit Trilogy (Published by Diversion Books), Titanborn and From Ice To Ashes (Random House Hydra).

Rhett has been writing since he can remember, scribbling down what he thought were epic short stories when he was young to show to his friends and family. When he reached high school he decided to take that a step further and write his first novel. After the encouragement of his favorite English teacher, he decided to self-publish a fantasy trilogy so that the people closest to him could enjoy his early work.

While studying architecture at Syracuse University, he continued to write as much as he could, but finding the time during the brutal curriculum proved difficult. It wasn’t until he was a senior that he decided to finally pursue his passion for Science Fiction. After rededicating himself to reading works of the Science Fiction authors he always loved, (Frank Herbert, Timothy Zahn, Heinlein, etc.) he began writing “The Circuit: Executor Rising”, the first part of a space opera series.

Since then he’s been hired by an Architecture firm in South Norwalk, CT. But that hasn’t stopped him from continuing to work on the many countless stories bouncing around in his head. He’s also recently earned a Certificate in Screenwriting from the New School in NYC, in the hopes of one day writing for TV or Video Games.

  1. My favorite part– no debate– was hearing the dog bark (about a minute after Mr. Bruno dissed high schools for requiring students to read “Catcher in the Rye”). What kind of dog & what’s his name? I mean no offense to the author– the entire interview was quite interesting and despite Mr. Bruno’s protestation to the contrary, I think he’s an excellent speaker.

    • Hi Deleise,
      My dog is a pitbull, lab mix named Raven. She is a nightmare hah! And it’s nothing against that book in general, I just meant that the things you’re forced to read in school can take away your interest in reading if you aren’t into those genre. At least for me. Just the first required reading that popped into my head.

  2. What I thought was most interesting were the trials and tribulations that Rhett went through when dealing with the various companies/publishers/whatever. I know very little about what goes on with getting published other than people submitting resumes and then getting rejected/accepted. Very interesting.
    Enjoyed the thought process to develop Titanborn. Cool.
    I think staying away from “technobabble” is a good thing. It limits the time relevance on the novel. For example, I remember during the 90’s when authors had characters that bragged about the technology they used, such as “super cutting edge” PC’s with 4 megs of ram and a 160mb hard drives…. Only good for boat anchors today.
    Titanborn verus Europaborn? Good choice. 🙂
    Cool about SF Bridge! I didn’t know you started it. It is a great way to learn about new authors and books. I now have tons of emails coming in from authors. Outstanding!
    I have “At The Helm”.
    Darth Vader? I can see it.
    I thought most of the books we read in high school were time wasters, including Catcher in the Rye, but two books have stuck with me through the years… “Old Man and the Sea” and “Moby Dick”. I love both of these books.
    I am glad I listened to the interview. I learned a lot and it was very interesting. Thanks for telling us about it in your email.

  3. Favorite part is tie between Titanborn premise and the success story of Scifi Bridge. All of his stories sound interesting. I hope he and his Sci-fi Bridge folks do well!
