Legend has it Tom Bradley Jr. began his writing career on his second birthday when he used cake icing to scribe something illegible on his highchair. He's been doing it ever since.
After serving seven years in the U.S. Navy, the Pennsylvania native wrote for community and daily newspapers in San Diego County and later launched a second career in public relations, first in Las Vegas, then in San Antonio, then back in Las Vegas. Along the way, he picked up a B.A. in Communications from National University in San Diego, and an M.A. in Strategic Communication and Leadership from Seton Hall University in South Orange, N.J.
When he’s not writing and self-publishing his Noelani Lee mystery novels, which is all too often these days, Tom spends an inordinate amount of time watching British, Irish, Aussie, and Kiwi crime dramas on PBS and various streaming channels. He’s also been known to strum a few chords on his ukulele and is often found in his recliner, napping, with a cold craft beer in his clutches.
Tom lives an idyllic suburban existence in Henderson, Nevada, with his wife, Donna; a Bengal cat named Malia; and a basset hound who sometimes answers to Lola.
