"I hate writing. I love having written." - Dorothy Parker

A. J. Bradley is a writer of historical fantasy and occasionally dabbles in poetry. She loves all things magical and is inspired by myths and legends from around the world.

A. J. is currently working on her first novel, A Bird's Eye View, which is the first installment in a trilogy called The Awakening. She is a member of Scribophile and works as a beta reader for two other writers.

A. J. is also an accomplished traveller, having set foot on four of the seven continents. As a result of her travels she has developed a deeper fascination for human nature, and hopefully, a more generous and forgiving attitude toward her fellow humans-being.

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” – Maya Angelou

This is a sentiment A. J. tries to apply to all of her characters, most especially the ones she doesn't like.

A. J. lives in BC, Canada with her BoyChild and has a debilitating addiction to coffee for which her dentist is very grateful. A. J. also gets a real kick out of driving her stick-shift because it makes her feel like a sports car driver.
