Alan Brenham is the pseudonym of Alan Behr. He is the author of five published novels. Two of those novels, Price of Justice and Cornered, have been translated into five foreign languages and published in several countries.

Alan was born in Delhi, New York. After completing high school in Maryland, he attended Texas A&I University, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in sociology and biology. After college, he spent several years in law enforcement as a US Treasury Special Agent which included duty as a Special Deputy US Marshal. That assignment took him to several European cities from London to St. Petersburg, Russia, as well as Middle Eastern meccas of Istanbul, Beirut and Tehran.

Alan later served as a detective with the Temple, Texas, Police Department. He took a sabbatical from the police, spending two years as a law enforcement instructor for US Armed Forces in West Berlin. During his time in Germany, he won a gold medal in an Army-sponsored international pistol competition—an achievement he credits to the extraordinary firearms training he received from the US Secret Service.

In 1987, Alan graduated from Baylor University School of Law and was admitted to the Texas State Bar that same year. He spent the next twenty-four years in an active practice of law first as a prosecutor then as a criminal defense attorney. He turned to writing fiction in 2010 and is currently working on his next novel.

Alan and his wife, Lillian, live in Texas. Together, they’ve traveled to the Caribbean and Alaska. When not writing or traveling, Alan enjoys reading thriller novels and watching football. He is a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and the International Association of Crime Writers.
