Your Cart

A Brief Introduction

I began writing my first fantasy novel in college, but in the way of these things, I set it aside as life intervened. As time went on, though, I realized that my love of writing and telling tales wasn’t going to go quietly into the night. The drive to write came back full force in the early 2000s, at which point I dedicated myself to learning the craft, writing several novels and learning under the guidance of writers like Nancy Kress, Joe Haldeman, Tim Powers, Holly Black, Michael Swanwick, Kij Johnson, and many more.

More than ten books later, my novels have garnered many accolades and most anticipated lists, including two Hotties–the Debut of the Year and Best New Voice–on Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist, a Gemmell Morningstar Award nomination for The Winds of Khalakovo and more.

The best way to get to know more about me would be to give one of my novels a try. They’re in the vein of J. R. R. Tolkien, George R. R. Martin, Robin Hobb, Guy Gavriel Kay, Glen Cook, and C. S. Friedman. If you like any of those writers, give one of mine a try.

Brendan P. Bellecourt

Brad also writes science fiction under the Brendan P. Bellecourt pseudonym. The first book under that name, Absynthe, explores an alternate roaring 20s where a shell-shocked soldier must uncover latent telepathic abilities to save himself and the people around him.


Bradley P. Beaulieu's epic fantasy novels have been published in over a dozen countries and translated into more than six languages. They have garnered many accolades and most anticipated lists, including Over twenty “Best of the Year” lists for Twelve Kings in Sharakhai.


I'm available to give talks on writing. A long-time speaker at the Gen Con Writer’s Symposium. I’ve also given talks at the League of Utah Writers Conference, the UW Madison Writers’ Institute, and the Macmillan Memorial Library.


I travel to various conventions, conferences and book festivals worldwide throughout the year. Check my blog for the latest news or sign up for my newsletter for up-to-date information.
