Playwrights, Composers, Lyricists and Authors
Wade Bradford was born and raised in the often wet and sometimes windy state of Washington. At the age of 19, Wade fell in love with a girl who lived out-of-state, so he moved to the often sunny and sometimes shaky state of California.
He earned a Masters in Literature from CSUN. Wade currently teaches English at Moorpark College and is the official “Guide to Plays and Drama” at About.com. In 2011, his first picture book, Why Do I Have to Make My Bed? (edited by Red Fox Literary agent Abigail Samoun) was published by Tricycle Press/Random House. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly said of the book: “This book deserves a place on the shelves next to the Magic School Bus series." In addition to writing picture books and novels, Wade has written over 30 plays, including Stagecraft: The Video Game and Downton Zombie, both available from Pioneer Drama.
Wade's second picture book, Around the World in a Bathtub, will be available through Charlesbridge Publishing.
?Oh, and the girl he fell in love with? She and Wade have been married for 19 years!
