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. 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."
Wade's second picture book, Around the World in a Bathtub, is now available through Charlesbridge Publishing. His latest books are Papa Bear's Page Fright and There's a Dinosaur on the 13th Floor.
In addition to writing picture books and novels, Wade has written over 35 plays, including CSI: Neverland, Promedy, and Tomorrow's Wish.
Oh, and the girl he fell in love with? She and Wade have been married for over 23 years!
