Oana and I are thrilled to welcome author Brian Hartman as a guest on our show. Not only is Brian a gifted writer but one who has selected a topic most authors would shy away from - living with a disability.

Having read the,aptly titled "Dave Riggler's Stories", which comprise of many shorts surrounding the life of the wheelchair bound Dave Riggler, I found it refreshing and so insightful and what a wonderful journey.


Brian Hartman was born in North Arlington, New Jersey. He graduated from Ramapo College in 1992 with a BA in English Literature, and in 2000 from Rutgers University with a Masters degree in Library Science. "First Steps" is his first nationally published work. He also has a short story collection, "Dave Riggler's Stories."
