Scotty Bradley

Created by Greg Herren

Former go-go dancer and personal trainer SCOTTY BRADLEY (please don't call him Milton) is quite the boy around town, juggling assorted lovers (ex-FBI hunk Frank Sobieski and the enigmatic Colin Cioni), a recreational drug habit (Ecstasy, mostly), a family of wingnuts (including hippie parents and an over-achieving elder brother), hit-and-miss psychic abilities and a burgeoning career as New Orleans' most dashing private eye in a series of generally good-natured romps by Greg Herren.

In fact, with his oddball cases and his propensity for occasionally outlandish capers, Scotty reminds me of nobody so much as a gay version of Richard Prather's Shell Scott.

The author, Greg Herren, actually lives in New Orleans (and "has no plans to leave. Ever."). He's been a freelance journalist, personal trainer, book critic and the editor in chief of the Lambda Book Report. He also writes about another Big Easy eye, Chanse MacLeod.


  • "... an enjoyable and brave novel. I'm glad Greg Herren has decided not to retire Scotty; I'd hate to see the last of such a likable character... Scotty is a bit of a ditz, and his defensiveness and self-consciousness about it are endearing. Nonetheless, he generally manages to make the best of his many bad situations. Memo to readers: You needn't share the characters' beliefs, personalities, politics, sexualities, or attitudes to enjoy a good story. Reading is about broadening your horizons, which doesn't happen by insisting only on characters exactly like yourself.

-- Poppy Z. Brite on Mardi Gras Mambo
