What is Letters To My Brother?

A while back, my real life brother pushed me to write about my life and general thoughts. So when I write, I’m primarily thinking about him; my goal is to make it feel like personal correspondence that everyone’s welcome to read!

How often will you assault my inbox?

It depends… I write as I have opportunity, so it varies. But I promise not to intentionally annoy you.

Is Hiram your real name?

Nope. Hiram Foster is a pen name I chose because my given name is uncommonly common. I selected Hiram as a reference to my brother, who’s been incredibly encouraging and supportive. Foster is a personal reference.

thoughts on life and writing…


I like writing, music, woodworking, and smoking meat. I write this as a Letter To My Brother, where I muse on life, writing, and how my kids occasionally defraud me for brisket.
