Bryan Denson is a veteran journalist who specializes in telling true stories cinematically. He's happiest when the story plays hard to get, requiring long hours of investigative lock-picking. He then immerses himself deeply in the lives of his subjects, much like a method actor going deep into character, to reveal the souls of their stories.
Bryan has been awarded scores of national and regional journalism honors. He is a winner of the George Polk Award and the Michael E. DeBakey Journalism Award, and he was a finalist for The Pulitzer Prize in national reporting. Denson also was a finalist for the Investigative Reporters and Editors Award, a second-place finisher in The Society for Features Journalism for news series and projects, and an honorable mention for the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award. The Spy's Son, Bryan's first book, was a finalist for the William E. Colby Award.
He lives in Portland, Oregon, where he now contributes stories to Newsweek and other magazines and serves as a special correspondent for the Los Angeles Times. His stories have also appeared in Maxim, Reader's Digest, All About Beer, and Running Times. Bryan's media consulting business, BDMC, prepares lawyers for interviews with journalists.
