Quade began writing in 2001 where he was awarded 1st place in Wisconsin, and 5th place nationally for the Reading Rainbow's Young Author; Young Illustrator contest for his story, "The Ugly Snowman". After writing stories for friends and school, Quade began to take things seriously in 2009 by beginning his first novel.
2012 the novel was finished at 530 pages and submitted thrice for publication, each time coming closer than the last. Quade worked along side authors Patrick Rothfuss and Michael Martinez for assistance on his story. Putting the novel on hold, Quade quickly regrew his interest in Short Stories, publishing "Red Scar" on Crashtest Literary Magazine, as well as winning a scholarship to his local college for his story, "The Dire-Wing".
Quade has been featured in his colleges literary and artistic journals, and his stories have been the subject of class discussions during events such as Writers Workshop or the Cornerstone Press course. Currently Quade is honing his skills by writing a Novella and another short story. His strongest subject is Fantasy/Fiction.
