About Brad


Whether via cartoon, a picture book, or a tall tale, Brad has always loved to tell stories. He currently writes mystery and suspense.

Brad criss-crossed the country after growing up in Michigan and North Carolina. He currently lives in the City of Angels with his husband and biggest fan, Maurice. During those rare moments he’s not writing, you can usually find him on the beach. On a good day, if he has a legal pad handy, you may find him enjoying life to the fullest by writing while his feet are buried firmly in the sand.

A Body in a Bathhouse


On the verge of bankruptcy, private investigator, Mitch O'Reilly, takes any gig that comes his way, while running his Eye Spy Supply shop in a forgotten Los Angeles strip mall. After two tours in Afghanistan, Mitch's life amounts to operating his store, coping with his fun loving sister, Josie, and scoring with anonymous men he meets online. That changes when he gets a big break. A beloved comedy scriptwriter is murdered in a bathhouse and Mitch is hired to prove the innocence of the club custodian. Adapting from a two-bit gumshoe to a high profile sleuth proves more challenging than he expected.

As if Mitch didn't have enough to deal with, charismatic bathhouse operator, Trent Nakos, enters his life. After a heartbreaking past, the manager is the definition of a man the brooding P.I. actively avoids.

Following leads from sprawling mansions to sketchy hoods is demanding, but becomes more troublesome when deadly threats jeapordize the biggest opportunity of his career.
