About Alan B. Bradley

Most of my biographical information can be found in my memoirs “Lies and Broken Promises - A Tale of Addiction” and "Lies and Broken Promises - A Tale of Alcoholism". I did not do very well in school initially, but later in my late 20's, I went on to earn my bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Montclair State University in Montclair, New Jersey. I earned highest honors with a 3.85 grade point average for my bachelor’s degree and 4.00 for my master’s degree. At Montclair, I concentrated on experimental psychology type courses even though they did not have that specific degree program at the time. I knew I wanted to get into a Ph.D. program in Experimental Psychology.

I enrolled in a three year doctoral program in Experimental Psychology at Fordham University. That was a wake-up call for me since I am an atheist and Fordham is a Catholic University. Half the courses are taught by priests. I was also accepted into the Experimental Psychology program at Kentucky State University with a fellowship good for $4,000 for each of 3 years. I turned the fellowship down because I was involved with a girlfriend and didn’t want to end the relationship by moving to Kentucky for three years. I hoped to concentrate on statistics and courses like Physiological and Experimental Psychology. I thought that would make for a good career as a professor and researcher. However, a motorcycle accident ended my career in college. I have no lingering problems from the accident, but after 8 months on pain pills, I couldn’t psych myself up to get back into college work the following year.

When I knew a Ph.D. was not in my future, I looked for work in the computer field which was very rewarding for me. I always wanted to write since way back in grammar school. I never had the time or the attention span to sit down and do any serious writing until a couple of years ago. My focus over the next few years will be on more writing.

I read Alan Bradley's Lies and Broken Promises - A Tale of Addiction quite fast. I couldn't believe the number of issues he had to deal with through his early years. I will never complain about my life again. His reliance on speed is fascinating. I could not personally fathom going a week or two without sleep. I thought I had an active sex life when I was younger, but Bradley blows me away with his escapades. The story is very sad, but it reads rather quickly.
