    Jeffrey Round is best known as the Lambda Award-winning author of two mystery series--the gritty Dan Sharp books and the comic Bradford Fairfax series. He is also an award-winning filmmaker, television producer and songwriter. His first novel, "A Cage of Bones", was topping bestseller lists around the world. Both "A Cage of Bones" and "The P-Town Murders," first in the Bradford Fairfax series were listed on AfterElton's Top 100 Greatest Gay Books in 2008. Jeffrey's "Endgame" was called a "brilliant recreation" of Agatha Christie's best-selling mystery "And Then There Were None", giving the original what one critic called a "punk-rock reboot." It became a best-selling e-book in the US in 2016.

New Books & Great Stories

I so appreciate a podcast focusing on LGBTQ authors and hearing their stories. It's not the typical humdrum show where authors talk about their craft. They can be interesting but I love the way Brad has his guests go deeper beyond writing and talk about themselves. I feel intimate with some of my favorite mystery writers.

Rachel Giordano ,

Brad is the best!

Brad has an easy going interview and storytelling style. I love that he is highlighting this particular genre and does it expertly.

Mark Savant Media ,
