With eight novels in print, including his highly-successful science-fiction teen series, Reject High, Brian Thompson continues to shape his career as a storyteller who fuses high-concept plots with down-to-earth characters.
As a child, Brian could always be found drawing superheroes or etching out action stories in a notebook. Leaning on his experience as a well-respected journalist and writer and with his love for science fiction classics, Brian formed Great Nation Publishing, LLC. – an independent publishing company aimed at promoting creative projects with integrity. Its published works include historical fiction novels The Lost Testament (2010), and The Revelation Gate (2011), with the latter landing on Amazon's Top 80 List for Historical Fiction-Africa.
With those works under his belt, Brian turned to his first love of science fiction and released the dystopian/speculative fiction work, The Anarchists (2012) and introduced the Reject High series geared towards urban fantasy/young adult readers. The Anarchists, Reject High (Book One of the Reject High Series), Sophomore Freak (Book Two), Forgotten (Book Three), and Champion Immortal (Book Four), and The Nuclear Winter: A Reject High Legacy Novel have garnered a number of positive reviews and endorsements with short story anthology Reject High Revisited: Tales From Between the Bells as well. Day Zero: A Reject High Legacy Novel, will release in 2021.
When he is not urging others to pursue their writing passions, Thompson chases his own: being a full-time high school English/Language Arts teacher, and co-running the day-to-day operations of Great Nation Publishing. A proud graduate of both Morehouse College and Temple University, Thompson and his family live in East Metro Atlanta, Georgia.
