"It's Never Too Late to Write"
with Dr. Bradley Harper

We started off CBW 2021 with a wonderful program on Zoom on January 27.  Dr. Bradley Harper was our guest speaker and he was great! His talk was informative and inspiring.

Jeanne Johansen of High Tide Publications hosted the program and is preparing a recording for us. Watch for it to be posted in the near future.

Brad began writing at the tender age of 63 after a thirty-seven-year career in the US Army. He will talk about his journey to becoming an award-winning author, addressing both the creative and business side of writing. Brad says it's never too late to pursue your dreams and hopefully, his experience will help you take your dreams and make them goals.

Bradley Harper -
Army Pathologist Turned Writer

My life before becoming an author was as a board-certified Army Pathologist. I have performed over 200 autopsies during my 37 years of active duty as a pathologist, and my clinical years are interwoven with four stints as the commanding officer of various medical units. I was an Infantry officer before medical school, worked in the Pentagon, and learned to speak five languages. Yet, I also happily play Santa each Christmas (with my loving wife as Mrs. Claus). It is this juxtaposition of exploring the body, mind, and humanity that allows me share universal truths with my readers.

Bradley Harper’s second novel, Queen’s Gambit was recently awarded the 2020 Silver Falchion Award both as Best Suspense and as Book of the Year.

A life-long fan of Sherlock Holmes, Harper did intensive research for his debut novel, A Knife in the Fog, including a trip to London's East End with noted Jack the Ripper historian Richard Jones. Harper’s first novel was published in October 2018 and was a finalist for a 2019 Edgar Award by the Mystery Writers of America for Best First Novel by an American Author.
