Brad Whittington, author of wacky novels and winner of awards, was born in Fort Worth, Texas on James Taylor’s eighth birthday and Jack Kerouac’s thirty-fourth birthday and is old enough to know better. He lives in Austin, Texas with The Woman.

Previously he has been known to inhabit Hawaii, Ohio, South Carolina, Arizona, and Colorado, annoying people as a janitor, math teacher, field hand, computer programmer, brickyard worker, editor, resident Gentile in a Conservative synagogue, IT Director, weed-cutter, and in a number of influential positions in other less notable professions.

Brad is greatly loved and admired by all right-thinking citizens and enjoys a complete absence of cats and dogs at home.
