Brian Arthur Levene was born in Kingston, Jamaica, on October 24, 1973. He grew up in Back Bush, one of Kingston's roughest urban ghettos. His mother taught kindergarten until leaving Jamaica in 1983 for the United States, leaving Brian and his older sister behind. Two years later, Brian passed his sixth-grade exams and earned a place at Jamaica College, one of Kingston's top five high schools. In 1988, before he graduated, one of the most powerful hurricanes ever ripped through Jamaica, displacing hundreds of Kingston's citizens, including Brian. He reunited with his mother in Mount Vernon, New York, where she lived. In the States, Brian's interests shifted from academics to writing poetry and songs, producing music, and playing semi-professional golf. In 2001, Brian moved to Palm Beach, Florida, to focus strictly on semi-professional golf, traveling to tournaments throughout the United States. In 2007, he relocated to Yakima, Washington, after deciding to pursue a career in the health field in order to benefit others. After receiving an Associate's Degree in Science at Yakima College, he started school at Washington State University, in January 2008. He transferred to Southern Connecticut State University in August, where he studied public health. He started to write his first and second novels in his senior year. Graduating in December 2010 with a Bachelor's Degree in Public Health and Epidemiology, Brian published this first novel, Not Easily Washed Away, in April of 2011 while pursuing his Master's Degree in Forensics Psychology. Brian's co-author is his wife, whose pen-name is Anon Beauty and whose life inspired this book. They live in Chicago with their five-year-old son. He will soon be moving on to San Francisco to pursue his doctorate in Clinical Psychology.
