24-year-old Brandon Berkel spent five years writing The Dream Architect.During a period of that time he worked at a bakery, where he came up with a lot of ideas for this book. He would spend early mornings inside his head, thinking of the story.When asked why he wrote the book, he responded, "Love, Dreams, and Immortality. With all the dreams and desires I have in life, through writing I can live all of them. Life is short and you never know when it will end. Through the words I created a world for my love ones to always and forever know where to find me." Brandon's girlfriend of four years has inspired the book as well.
Brandon lived in Columbia, MO for about 5 years but has since moved to St. Louis. He is a people person, playing therapist to the patrons of the bar he manages. He enjoys spending time with his cute Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Brandon is involved in the community, working with other entrepreneurs and attending local events. This is his first novel, but certainly not his last--he is already working on his second book.
