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.



Justene Adamec is an avid reader of gay mysteries, She is a founding partner of ReQueered Tales, which is bringing back classic gay fiction one book at a time. requeeredtales.com.
