The Quiet Warrior Show

Aug 23, 2022

Brad Shaeffer told Host Tom Dutta his father died by hanging in his garage on his 16th birthday.  He turned his anger into Novel writing.  Storytelling at its best in this Live taped interview.  


Brad Schaffer was born in Baltimore, MD but grew up in a suburb of Chicago. After attending the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, he lived in Chicago where he embarked on his dual career as both a commodities trader and author/novelist. He currently resides in New Jersey. His prolific and eclectic writing can be found in the pages of the Wall Street Journal, New York Daily News, National Review, Daily Wire, and other well-read publications. His interests, as reflected in his articles, encompass a wide swath from business, to science, education, the arts, history, politics, social issues, and general day-to-day living. He is also an accomplished guitarist and pianist and can be found playing in local New Jersey clubs with one of several rock bands in which he has played over the years. He is the author of Of Another Time And Place (2018), which takes place in World War II Europe. It studies the conflicts that good men confront when compelled by national loyalty and indoctrination to fight for morally reprehensible causes. His latest novel, The Extraordinary (2021), deftly tackles two sensitive subject matters -- autism and PTSD -- and the impacts they have on not just those with these conditions but also the families who support them.
