Editorial Reviews

Review

“Includes well-drawn characters, page-turning action, and lively prose peppered with dry humor and potty history.”—The Bulletin, Recommended

“Featuring likeably human main characters, a colorful supporting cast, memorably off-beat set pieces and a credible small-town atmosphere, this debut should leave plenty of readers flushed with laughter.”
—Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

The first characters Brian Meehl brought to life were not in books. They lived on TV and movie screens in the form of Muppets on "Sesame Street" and in Jim Henson films, including roles in the cult classic, "The Dark Crystal." Shifting his hand from puppets to pen, Meehl won two Emmys while writing for PBS children's television shows such as "The Magic School Bus" and "Between the Lions."
 
He then returned to his first love: books. Meehl has published four novels (3 YA, 1 middle grade) with Random House: 
Out of Patience, Suck It Up, Suck It Up and Die, and You Don't Know About Me. The first was a Junior Library Guild Selection, the last won a Blue Ribbon from the Bulletin for the Center for Children's Books, while two of them garnered starred PW reviews and spots on numerous state readings lists. He also published one of his oft-optioned screenplays as an adult novella, Pastime.
 
More recently, Meehl has been writing 
Blowback, a YA trilogy harmonizing time-travel, historical fiction sports and romance. For more, visit brianmeehl.com.
Only $5.95 a month for the first 4 months on Audible. Limited-time only.

Brian’s most recent novel is BLOWBACK '94, the “hugely enjoyable and fast-paced” finale in his critically acclaimed BLOWBACK TRILOGY. The kickoff book in the trilogy, BLOWBACK ’07, received a coveted red-star review from Publishers Weekly.

His award-winning books include a bestselling comedic riff on vampires, SUCK IT UP, OUT OF PATIENCE (Junior Library Guild Selection), and YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT ME (Blue Ribbon from the Bulletin for the Center for Children’s Books).

Once upon a time, Brian worked for Jim Henson’s Muppets and puppeteered the gamut from a young pup, Barkley on SESAME STREET, to the Dying Master in Henson’s cult classic, THE DARK CRYSTAL. After taking up the pen, Brian wrote for kids’ shows like THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS and BETWEEN THE LIONS, winning three Emmys along the way.
