About the Host

Brad Shreve

Producer & Host

Brad was delighted when he discovered the LGBTQ mystery subgenre and the list of writers who inspired him to pursue a writing career are too numerous to mention. He writes the Mitch O’Reilly Mystery Series.

Believing there is a whole section of society that is unaware that the subgenre exists, he created this podcast.

He’s a proud dad, beach bum, and coffee house squatter. He grew up in Michigan and North Carolina. Working in the hotel industry moved him to most every region of the United States. He now calls the Los Angeles South Bay his home, where he lives with his husband, Maurice.
