The Brimmerverse is a book series following the story of the Brimmer family (hence Brimmerverse).
The first book, Behold All the Dwellers Upon Earth, is now available. It is a political fantasy centering on the Brimmer family. Nathan Brimmer is from a wealthy, upper-class Boston family. His heritage includes much privilege and something a bit more unusual. He discovers at a young age that he possesses supernatural abilities.
He keeps these powers to himself until he meets Sarah, who has similar, but lesser, abilities. They eventually marry and have four children. The Brimmer children all have these powers at some level, but David and James-William have the greatest of all. They know things. They can understand and do things no one else can. Nathan enters local politics and seems to have a great career ahead of him. David and James-William can see a disaster looming that they know their father can prevent. They guide him onto the national political stage to help correct many injustices in the country and stop the horror they foresee. Religious and LGBTQ themes are also explored, as is the importance of both family of origin and family of choice.
John Merullo, like the Brimmers, is a native of Massachusetts. He had a 23-year career as a public librarian, specializing in programming for adults and management. He lives in Houston with his husband, George, their dogs, Paul and Ringo, their cat, Pete, and John's mother, Mary. He enjoys cooking, baking, reading, watching old movies and classic TV shows, and choral singing.
Behold All the Dwellers Upon Earth is his debut novel.
