Brian Tarcy has his background in journalism.
He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio and for the first six years of his career he was a journalist on Cape Cod. First, he covered small-town New England government such as the planning board, selectmen and town meeting.
At the same time he began writing features and investigative pieces while he also wrote a humor column for the Cape Cod Times for a half a decade.
In the late 1980s, he began freelancing and wrote stories for Boston Magazine, Boston Business Magazine, Teaching Tolerance and many others.
In 1991, he collaborated on his first book, "The Adventure Of Leadership" by Hap Klopp, the founder of The North Face. That book has been re-published two times since then. He has since collaborated on many books, including books with professional athletes, business leaders and doctors.
He has helped budding novelists turn a dream into a manuscripts.
He has also helped write private memoirs — including for a man who wanted his incredible life story preserved for his children and grandchildren. This was among the more enjoyable projects he has ever worked on… even though only about 50 copies were printed.
He recently launched a PR sidebar business — BT Communications for PR writing. In addition, he has written a couple of speeches, including for an "A" list professional athlete. And he has written a white paper for Jeff Taylor, the founder of Monster.com
The coolest thing he does is collaborate with local sixth graders each year on an 80-minute radio mystery play — "Lunchroom Radio Mystery Theater" — that is performed and recorded, with real professional sound effects, with the funding of NPR. It's a lot of fun and the kids are really smart. He always learn from them.
Speaking of fun, he is the founder of WhatZgonnahappen.com — a satiric website featuring NFL predictions mixed with politics. He is also the creator of Freecheezeburgerz.com — a mostly satiric, sometimes serious website about, well, anything.
He is the author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide To NASCAR." Prior to starting the book, he was a football and baseball fan. He can learn about anything and will try his best to always be open-minded. And yes, that means he now love NASCAR!
He was born and raised near Cleveland, Ohio. He currently live in Falmouth, Massachusetts.
