About the Author

Born in the Deep South in 1954, Brian M. Talgo later spent his formative years in Westchester County, a northern suburb of New York City. Despite his new Yankee status, he returned to the South (Atlanta, Georgia) after high school, where he idled away a large part of the 70’s.

Wandering restlessly about the US for several years, working mainly as a carpenter and stonemason, he eventually found his inner Viking and relocated to Norway in 1981 after foolishly vowing to leave the country if a certain third rate movie actor became president. After many years abroad he has grown comfortable with his expat status.

The proverbial jack of all trades, Mr. Talgo eventually studied and nailed down a degree in ecology but shortly thereafter found himself wandering again, this time down the path of information technology. He currently works as an IT engineer at the University of Oslo, while gazing longingly out over the fjords, waiting for his long ship to come in. In the meanwhile he writes, paints and makes artsy-fartsy photos to fill in the time.

The author presently lives in Oslo together with his wife, son, two cats and a miniture forest of plants. A daughter has wisely flown the coop. The Beauregarde Affair is his first major foray into the world of literature.

  1. But where are the LEGS?


  2. Interesting indeed. We do have much in common, I suspect. Great to hear from you. I’ll read your first three chapters here, probably buy the book, but I don’t see a way to do it on this Blog. Have many questions, and would like to correspond. I’ll use the other address I have for you.
