Brad Magnarella grew up in north central Florida. As a boy he discovered the worlds of Marvel Comics, text-based gaming, The Boss, and Stephen King, roughly in that order. The prize, however, was a creek that wound past his suburban neighborhood, providing him and his friends a wooded sanctuary in which to lose themselves while discovering natural Florida.
A graduate of the University of Florida and American University, Brad has long aspired to write fiction from the places that colored his childhood. His books include The Prisoner and the Sun trilogy and the first in his new young adult series, XGeneration.
Brad currently lives and writes in Washington, D.C.
