I was born and raised on Long Island, New York, a  bagel's throw from New York City.

In 1985, I unexpectedly found myself moving to Central New Hampshire. Over the next ten years, I worked hard at adjusting to life here. From learning to rake his roof, to buying firewood for the first time, to trying to fit into the social setting of a morning at the dump, I found that these, and many more adjustments, would not be very easy for this Flatlander.

Since 1995, I have been recounting these humorous adventures as well as my take on life in general every week on the pages of The Weirs Times with my F.O.O.L. (Flatlander's Observations On Life) In New Hampshire column.The Flatlander Chronicles contains the best of those early columns and my newest book The Best Of A F.O.O.L contains the best of the rest.

Today, my column reaches tens of thousands of readers a week.

I have also been sharing these tales with a lively and entertaining programs I have presented from The Lakes Region to the Seacoast to the Mountains.

I am currently accepting bookings for 2021/2022. If you are interested in my program and fee you can contact me at brenthom12@gmail.com
