Born a long time ago in the small township of Foxton New Zealand, Bradley’s first book was a Self-Help book E is for Effort. That led to his debut novel The Ring. And so unwittingly began the ‘End of Days’ trilogy. Followed by the final instalment, the apocalyptic Lady in Red. Stepping aside momentarily to write Puppet on a String. The Mist soon followed to complete the second instalment of the trilogy. Each book can stand on its own right, they are connected by aging characters and the passage of time. Alfie has a Kiwiana flavor and exalts one of his favorite cities, Wellington, New Zealand. Bradley's books reflects his keen interest in comparative religion, spirituality, adventure and romance. When not writing he enjoys innovating new products, hearty workouts and hanging out with his three amazingly intelligent and beautiful children Harry, Emily and Rebecca. Then again, he could be found at Vultures on Vulcan Lane enjoying a craft beer with good friends. (They know who they are.)
Alfie is now online. Time to step back and focus on connecting with publishers and re-reading re-tweaking the earlier books. Redefining from what I know now, that I didn't know then. Who knows the next book might actuality be Three Wishes. I'm sure it will be a love story, but it's complicated. We'll see what the universe has to say about that. Watch this space by December. In the meantime I hope you enjoy Alfie as much as I had writing it. Cheers Bradley

Grimm does what he does best. Michael is there to pick up the pieces. Like I say, it’s complicated...
I decided to remove the light hearted woeful tale of the poet and his companion and publish it as the separate short story DEXTER.
