Norm Brown was born and raised in Groves, a small town at the very southeastern corner of Texas. He earned a degree in physics from Lamar University, but a science career was not in the cards. Instead Norm got in on the ground floor of the rapid expansion of computers beginning in the 1970's and has enjoyed a long, successful career in programming and analysis, living and working in Houston, Dallas, Kansas City, Wichita, Boulder, and finally Austin.
As an avid reader of mystery and suspense, however, Norm always had an unexpressed desire to see his words in print and to entertain people with stories from his own imagination. Carpet Ride is the first of these stories to be published. Norm is currently working on a second novel.
