After growing up in Michigan and North Carolina, Brad crisscrossed the country while working in the hotel industry.

In addition to working in hotels as a bellman, front desk clerk, and reservation call center director, he’s managed coffee houses, waited tables, sold potato chips off a truck and even hocked pre-burial funeral plans.

In addition to perpetually thinking of how to kill people, he's a proud dad, a beach bum, and coffee house squatter.

Brad currently lives in the Los Angeles South Bay with his husband, Maurice.

It sounds like you love Mitch as much as I do. Yes, another Mitch O'Reilly novel has already been started. The working title is "A Body, a Bear, and a Blade," and I'm having great fun writing it. I learned not to promise dates after the last one was delayed but I don't expect you'll have to wait over a year again.

Thank you asking.(less)

The primary one I'm focusing on now is the second Mitch O'Reilly series novel, titled "A Body on the Hill." The story takes place a short time after the first novel but will be written so it can be a standalone. I plan to release it this Fall 2019.

The other book I'm working on is a suspense/thriller standalone novel titled "Trafficked." It's about a man who leaves his good life in Tucson to search the dark streets and dirty alleys of Hollywood searching for his missing nephew. I hope to have this out by the end of 2019. (less)

The writing is mediocre and the characters have little development, but it's still a fun ride to read a 1961 pulp novel about an openly gay detective. I probably would have given it 3 stars, but the historical value alone is worthy of a star on its o ...more
