Welcome to my website. I’m Brad. During the day, I develop websites using the latest technologies. At night, I write fiction. I bake gingerbread cookies, too.
Yep. That's me. This is my website.
This is Kendra. Isn’t she sweet? She’s my girlfriend. That’s a baby goat in her arms.
This is us together.
