Brandt Dodson is the creator of the Colton Parker mystery series and is the author of several stand alone novels and short stories. He comes from a long line of police officers spanning several decades and was employed by the Indianapolis office of the FBI. It was this background that led Brandt to write stories that feature police officers and detectives, struggling to right the wrongs of a fallen world.
Brandt says, “Crime novels are an excellent platform for drama. You have bad guys and good guys, of course, but real life is seldom so black and white. I don’t believe in moral relativism, but the fact is, there are few people who live on one side of the line or the other. It’s the shades of gray that makes crime fiction compelling.”
He attributes his desire to write to a succession of teachers. “Writing came naturally to me while in grade school and I had the good fortune of being encouraged by several teachers and professors. Their encouragement directed me toward a path that offers a voice for expression.”
Brandt is a board certified Podiatrist specializing in peripheral nerve surgery, and is a past president of the Indiana Podiatric Medical Association. He is a recipient of the Theodore Clark Lifetime Achievement Award, the association’s highest honor.
Brandt lives in southern Indiana with his wife and sons and is at work on his next novel.
