C.L. Brees, the author of An Unsettled Past, Dark Ending, and Among the Ashes, was born and raised in rural northeast Indiana, a place where sometimes he found the environment a bit too restrictive for his overactive imagination. He had bigger plans and set his sights on exploring the world for inspiration. Currently, he lives in Stuttgart, Germany.

Currently, C.L. Brees is working on the release of a new stand-alone novel, No Place is Safe, which should be released in Spring 2020. It is also anticipated that the Alex Jones series should be completed by early 2021.

C.L. Brees gained extensive knowledge in the world of criminal justice and forensics from the University of Baltimore, where he earned a Certificate in Crime Scene Investigation, a B.S. in Forensic Science, Magna Cum Laude, and an M.S. in Cyber Forensics in 2014 and 2015, respectively.

Before accepting his current overseas assignment, he worked as a criminal justice researcher, as a forensic analyst for a Baltimore law firm, and spent several years canvassing neighborhoods in Baltimore conducting health research for National Institutes of Health.
