Since the 1980’s, Brian Edwards — multi-award-winning celebrity talent executive, producer, writer and occasional performer — has worked with many of the biggest names in the history of show business.  A brief sampling includes:  Donna Summer, Joan Rivers, Cindy Crawford, Susan Sarandon, Melissa Rivers, Whoopi Goldberg, Farrah Fawcett, Shirley Jones, Naomi Judd and Vanessa Williams.

In 2013, with the publication of his debut book, “Enter Miss Thang,” another title attached to Edwards is “gay icon.” His unabashedly honest and side-splitting memoir became a national best seller and received several awards along the way, including top honors at The National Indie Excellence Awards, The International Book Awards and the IBPA Awards, to ultimately become the most honored LGBT non-fiction book of 2014. 

In 2019, never one to let the party end, Edwards published his follow-up, titled, “I Might Have Been Queen” (And Other Things I Didn’t Mention Before), filled with even more colorful stories laced with humor, chaos and inspiration. 

Affirming Edwards' stature and literary following, “I Might Have Been Queen,” garnered similar attention to receive a string of awards in 2020, including “Best LGBTQ Non-Fiction” and “Best Humor” at the International Book Awards and “Best Entertainment” from the National Indie Excellence Awards.
