SKYROCKET PRESS: Hi Wade. So we've heard it said you write plays. Is that true?


WADE BRADFORD: I have written over thirty plays, most of which have been perfomed by schools and community theaters across the country, and even on other continents.  Some of my more popular plays are: The Actor Games, CSI: Neverland, Tomorrow's Wish, and Sleeping Beauty and the Beast. As you may have noticed from the titles, I like mash-ups. 



SP:  What is your writing process?


WADE:  It depends on the project. I usually start a play by writing in my journal, and then once I finish a scene I create a second draft of it by typing it onto the computer. For Camp Omigosh, I wrote almost the whole book on my iPad. It took me about three months to write the first six chapters. And then after that, I started writing one chapter a day.



SP:  What is your favorite writing snack?


WADE:  Chocolate Chip Mint Ice Cream.



SP:  What do you want to be when you grow up?


WADE:  A time traveling plumber.



SP:  Who is your hero?


WADE:  My wife and daughters.



SP:  If you could rewrite the ending to any book, what would it be? (write new last paragraph here)


WADE: It might be a new ending to Mockingjay. (Spoiler Alert!) "Hey, Katniss! Guess who? It's me, Primm!" The End.



SP:  What inspired you to write Camp Omigosh?


WADE:  What is the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to you?

Ugh... So many to choose from.... Can't decide.... and brain... does ... not want... to... remember!



SP:  Do you believe in ghosts?


WADE:  I don't know. I haven't met any... yet.



SP:  Do you have a secret dream?


WADE:  If I told you, it wouldn't be a secret now, would it?
