Biography | Writer, Author, Penner


Hey all. I’m Brock T.I. Penner. Yes, that’s my real name. I write science fiction and fantasy.

I’ve always been a reader. One of my favorite places in all the world was the library in my hometown. Bless those librarians. I remember being like six or something and checking out twenty novels at a time. I just loved being around them. I did eventually read one of them. It was one of the first Star Wars novels, the EU before the EU was a thing, a Lando Calrissian one. I skipped large chunks of it when I couldn’t concentrate, but I finished it to say I read an entire book.

I had tried to write before, the first short was a Lovecraft rip-off. Like so many others, I was disappointed with the drivel I produced. I mean I managed to finish it, but it was crap. I started seriously writing to stave off boredom when I was working as a assistant language teacher in Japan. There was a lot of down time, and rather than play a lot of crappy flash games, I rekindled that love of writing. Writing soon became my anchor. Rather than feeling like life was frittering away while I was stuck in the teacher’s room, I worked. I soon became addicted.

I’m finishing up my first novel, the first readable one anyway. I hope you enjoy reading it. I certainly loved writing it.
