John Anthony Brennan is a native of Crossmaglen, a small town in County Armagh, Ireland. He left his beloved, sacred green isle many moons ago to see the world and has been island hopping ever since. He once lived on another island called Manhattan, which he calls the largest open-air lunatic asylum on the planet. He finally escaped to the sanctuary of the Long Island just in time to save his sanity, or so he thought. He was trained as a master carpenter but soon after arriving in New York, he changed career and studied to become a building manager. He managed a residential property on prestigious Park Avenue for many years. The urge to travel and explore the cultures and sacred places of the ancient peoples has always been his driving force. Starting in 1993, he was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to do just that. He spent seven years traveling and absorbed the energies he believes emanates from all sacred sites. From Newgrange in the Boyne Valley in Ireland, Stonehenge in England, the Mayan and Aztec temples scattered throughout South America and the colossal pyramids in Egypt. John has visited them all, and is convinced that a common thread connects us in ways we did not think possible. John incorporates his experiences in his works and some of his writing expresses a spiritual dimension.
