Brian Fitzpatrick is an award-winning author, screenwriter, and speaker.

Imagine being just 7 years old and accidentally watching the horror classic, Night of the Living Dead. For author, Brian Fitzpatrick, that's precisely what happened. It became the catalyst for a life-altering path forward. After a week of sleepless nights, he became fascinated with the idea that he could be so scared, yet be perfectly safe. Fitzpatrick swiftly put pen to paper and has been creating horror and science fiction tales ever since.

When not writing, Fitzpatrick balances a career, family time with his wife and son, investigates the paranormal with his team of ghost hunters, and has spent a lifetime weaving imaginative stories for table top role-playing games. Fitzpatrick grew up absorbing the works of Steven Spielberg, John Carpenter, George Lucas, Stephen King, Anne Rice, and Clive Barker.

For over a decade, Fitzpatrick has turned his focus to screenwriting where he would go on to place in the quarterfinals in four of the biggest contests the industry has to offer: Final Draft Big Break Screenplay Competition, PAGE International Screenwriting Contest, the Screencraft Sci-Fi/Fantasy Screenplay Competition, and most recently, The Script Lab 2019 Screenplay Competition.

He then converted his most popular screenplay, Mechcraft, into a novel. The book was published in February of 2018. Soon after the release, the Mechcraft novel went on to place quarterfinals in the Screencraft Sci-fi/Fantasy Novel Competition, receive a 5-star rating from Readers' Favorite, and hit #3 on Amazon for the YA Science Fiction category.

In 2020, publisher Black Rose Writing signed Fitzpatrick to a three book deal to re-release Mechcraft as well as the sequels, Mechcraft: Disruption and Mechcraft: Cataclysm. The trilogy will be released on May 4 and November 4 of 2021.

Mechcraft's popularity has grown. And in February, 2021, rock band, Chmcl Str8jckt released a song based on the story's villain, titled "Tendril and Blade."

In March, 2021, Fitzpatrick became co-writer for science fiction TV pilot, Finch and Skull, to be pitched to Netflix.
