Featured Interview With Brian Coggins Jr.
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I am not only a science fiction and epic fantasy nerd but I love reinventing stories about Greek mythology and history. Writing has always been a pathway to another world for me as my inspiration for character development and intricate mystery plots flourished from my time in film school in Orlando, Florida. I want to create an exclusive fulfilling reading experience that indulges my audiences imagination and dives them into a complex, action adventure universe full of diverse characters.
When I’m not writing, I’m spending time with my friends and family, traveling with my wife, or doing house chores that my wife tells me I never get to.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
My fascination for books came with my time in college but I have always been intrigued by Greek mythology ever since high school which helped in my desire to write ‘The Olympus Trinity.’ But what drew me the most was I wanted to create a fresh take on the Greek gods. There is such a distinguished history behind Greek mythology that people know and love and I just wanted to allow myself to create a more realistic and relatable story of characters for audiences to emotionally draw to while still maintaining action packed sequences full of love and humor.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
Dan Brown and George RR Martin. I love the way Dan Brown’s “Da Vinci Code” series drops the audience right into the story, hitting the ground running out the gate and the world building that George RR Martin does with his Game of Thrones series.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My latest book is ‘The Olympus Trinity.’
How much would you sacrifice to protect your family when everything isn’t enough? This epic fantasy adventure will take you on a journey following the Greek Gods and the original Olympus Trinity.
Zeus, the King of the Gods, fears no man, being, or anything of nature in the universe except one thing . . . the loss of family. Opposed to the cruel ways of his vicious father, Kronos, Zeus has strived endlessly in instilling the traditions his mother Rhea taught to him—Family is Everything. In spite of all his protection over his children, destiny ignores no one.
When a mysterious figure comes to his home, Zeus discreetly turns to his reticent brother Hades, God of the Underworld, for answers. Unfortunately, the rebellious and uncontrollable Ocean God, Poseidon, seeks for the answers his way that collides the troubled lives of the forefathers.
Needing to cast aside their differences, the Olympus Trinity must work together if they are to unravel the threads of a perilous mystery of their past.
