Joseph Brendan Vallely was born in North Carolina and raised in suburban Harrisburg and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and graduated from Denison University, majoring in that ever-useful subject, English. He was drafted in the largest draft in the history of the country (known as “McNamara’s Million”), became an Army Officer, and served in the Vietnam War. His book publishing career began in 1971 in New York City as a National Sales and Marketing Manager for major houses, with a short break to the newspaper business with the New York Times Company and others. He became an agent in 1985.
