About the Author
Brian M. Talgo is an expat American living for the last thirty years in Europe, mainly in Norway, as the proverbial jack of all trades, master of one (Plant ecology). Concerning his artwork, Mr. Talgo has had both private and group shows in America and Europe. Fantasy and landscapes tend to be central themes of his work, with a love of trees and nature reflecting his interest and education in biology. Although he has worked in a variety of mediums, he invariably returns to his two favorites, watercolor and pen & ink. When not otherwise occupied, Talgo can often be found haunting the early morning hours pecking away at his PC keyboard, producing unpublished epic manuscripts. These feature, among other things, incarcerated hognose snakes, the mythical perfect pilsner and not-so-Abominable Snowmen. He is also an avid amateur photographer. Mr. Talgo presently lives in Oslo together with his wife, son and avocado tree, with frequent visits from the downstairs cat, Car Keys. His lovely daughter, an accomplished illustrator and author, has flown the coup.
