Heritage pitcher hitting a homerun as an author

Posted May 7, 2014

Anyone that knows Heritage High School's Austen Brennan will say the same thing.

"He's determined and hard headed, in a good way," said Heritage baseball coach Tony Piercy.

A good trait to have on the mound and in Brennan's other hobby β€” writing. The senior is a published author.

"A lot of people are blown away. Every time I say that, someone is like really?," said Brennan.

The high school senior wrote a book called "Grey Wolf" and it's on sale on Amazon.com. It's already sold more than 200 copies in the first few months.

"I love that it's out there and people are reading it," said Brennan.

"Grey Wolf" is a novel about World War III. It's heavily researched and includes extensive detail about military operations.

"I wrote these books because I love the military. That's been in my family for generations,"  said Brennan.

And he wrote it now as a way to include two of his friends before they graduate high school – short stop Graham Upton has a starring role in the book.

"I didn't know he was writing it. He just came to me with a notebook. My first reaction was, make me awesome," joked Upton.

So he did. Writing the first 300 pages of Grey Wolf by hand.

"To write the manuscript took two months. To edit it took about a year," said Brennan.

"I was a little skeptical. Then I started reading though it and I am proud of what he's done," said Upton.

"Grey Wolf" is the first in a series of six books Brennan hopes to get published. Quite the to-do list for someone still a month away from graduation day.
