Wade Bradford grew up in rainy Washington state. In 1991, at the age of 19, he moved down to sunny California. Ever since then he has been complaining about missing the seasons. (And yet it should be noted that he has yet to move from the continually sunny weather!) He has loved writing since he was a little kid. His specialties are: plays, young adult novels, middle-grade fiction, and picture books. Once in a while, he dabbles in acting or screenplays, but his true love is writing for the stage.
