"Charisse, a good man is like Santa Claus. Believing in him feels real good until you find out he doesn't really exist." A Quote from my Debut Novel, The Bum Magnet.

Background Information


K. L. Brady is a D.C. native but spent a number of her formative years in the Ohio Valley. She’s an alumnus of the University of the District of Columbia and University of Maryland University College, earning a B.A. in Economics and M.B.A., respectively. She works as an analyst for a major government contracting firm and is an active real estate agent—and writes by night (often into the wee hours of the morning). She lives just outside of D.C. in Cheltenham, Maryland, with her son and lives to eat chocolate, shop, read, and write.

Her debut adult novel, THE BUM MAGNET, was published by Simon & Schuster's Pocket Books in March 2011. THE BUM MAGNET was the winner of the 2010 Next Generation Indie Book Awards for Multicultural Fiction, as well as the Third Place Grand Prize Winner for Best Fiction of 2010. Moreover, Ms. Brady was recently named the 2011 Female Author of the Year by the African Americans on the Move Book Club. The sequel, GOT A RIGHT TO BE WRONG, is scheduled for publication in January 2012.

Additional Information

My hilarious debut novel is called, The Bum Magnet, about a woman who attracts all the wrong men and goes on a journey into her past to figure out why. Some call it chick lit but it has a nice mix of drama and humor--heavy on the humor. If you need a laugh or a great gift for The Bum Magnet in your life (let's face it, we ARE one or we KNOW one), check it out. What Readers are Saying "There isn't a woman I know, including myself, that can't relate to Charisse on some level. Very intelligently written and witty and "tears rolling down my face" at points funny. I give it five stars." SGR Sista, Amazon Reviewer "The book wasn't just smart and entertaining, but it also surpassed the genre of chick-lit." H. Geil, California, Amazon Reviewer "Everytime I thought I figured out what was about to happen, the author threw in a curveball which kept me up late at night trying to find where it would land." April T, Texas, USA, Amazon Reviewer "If you can't identify with Charisse, you have a friend who is exactly like her. As a romance the journey is incredible, as a novel, it is laugh out loud funny . . . It is not a male-bashing book, but a realistic look at life through great writing." CleeCulver, Amazon Reviewer "Okay, I just fell in LOVE with Charisse... Definitely a multi-read book (you can read it multiple times and not get bored)... Warning: don't read in public, you WILL laugh and people WILL stare. If you can handle the staring, by all means, go ahead." Fluffy, Goodreads Reviewer
