Brad Center lives in Northern Virginia with his wife Valerie and his two sons, Jeremy and Peter. When not in Northern Virginia, you can find Brad and Valerie relaxing in Ocean City New Jersey. They are protected by Maxie the Wonder Dog and kept on their toes by their cats Zebulon and Loki who have come to earth from a strange alien planet. Brad has worked as a Legislative Assistant on Capitol Hill, as a consultant, and as an elected official in Fairfax County. This is Brad's second book and his first foray into the world of speculative fiction. Brad's first book, God is an Elephant in Orthopedic Shoes, is a collection of stories from his life interspersed with some fiction, poetry, and miscellaneous ramblings. It is available via Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and from Authorhouse publishing.
