About the Hosts

Brad Shreve

Brad was delighted when he discovered the gay 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. You can learn more about his books at BradShreve.com

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

He’s a proud dad, beach bum, and coffee house squatter. He currently lives in the Los Angeles South Bay with his husband, Maurice.
