Crusty (actually joined F/S October 08) acquired his nick name a long-long time ago, and is therefore no relation to one "Krusty Clown". Re: of the Simpsons, fame (Who was, by the way, born April 19, 1987 and aired for the first time on The Tracey Ullman Show in a short, called "Good Night").

Crusty enjoyed some small success with his vocal and recording career, and although he is new to he has had experience with other types of media. Appearing and performing many times on TV, as well as several years hosting a live talk-back radio show "The Drive Show", on a popular local radio station.

Crusty has been a prolific song writer since he was 14 years old, and only now, after 24 years in business and a string of Smash Repair shops, has he settled into full-time writing for the first time.

In the past few years Crusty completed 2 novels, has 3 semi completed novels, and story lines for 5 more. Preparing them for public scrutiny, however, is going to be much harder.

Crusty lives in tropical Australia. While he still feels young, has 5 children, 6 grandchildren, and was recently (Six years ago, now) remarried to the most incredible, beautiful, talented, and supportive woman in the world. ("No really, she is! She didn't make me say that.").

Crusty's desire is to one day be good enough to write stories that will take a readers breath away. Or at least, touch them in some other emotionally significant fashion. While getting published would be awesome, and getting paid even more awesome. Crusty feels that to touch someone's heart, and change their life in a deep or poignant way, would be the most awesome of all. This is a life long challenge.

Writing, for Crusty, has been a childhood dream, one which came slowly into fruition, just before Crusty met his new wife. (But that's another story).

Thanks for dropping by.

    Ronni: Hey Brad...pic is insulting...we are real
    live people here, not a side show daliance.
    How about being normal and respectful like
    all others on here?

    Crusty: No no! I assure you, I'm here to work. And I shall show equal respect to everyone, but be "normal" (can't promise anything) "like everyone else here" (not sure I understand) LOL. Just I need time to get back into routine. Find my groove. It may come back to me, it may not, I can only try.

    Gypsy Starchild: I liked the other picture you had posted better... I guess a sense of humor is not appreciated around here. lol

    Crusty: I'll be pulling this one down soon, Gypsy. Found the old one I used to have up :-)

    Crusty: Moving this next week. But I'll be back...

    Crusty: Never did get back, did I.
    Both my iMac and Macbook crashed their hard-drives because of the long rough move and I've lost all my work.
    So, I've been a while replacing the computers and trying to recover my work. So far, nothing. Cannot be done without thousands of dollars to spend. My writing will never sell well enough to make it a worth while investment. So, I have to start again.

    Cheers and best wishes to all my friends. You can find me on FB under Brad James.

    Colette: I came over to your page to check how you were doing, and I find that you have removed your work from the site. Brad, I wish you the very best of good luck, a road with no forks and a village called peace at the end. Colette from Ireland.
