Jerry Bader is Senior Partner at, a media production company that specializes in Web video, audio, music, and sound design. Mr. Bader has written and produced dozens of video commercials for clients. Writing novels, screenplays, and graphic novels is a natural extension that grew out of the experience of developing scripts that take uninspiring copycat commercial messages and turning them into attention-grabbing mini movies that focus on the core emotional motivator. 


Over the years Mr. Bader has written over a hundred articles on marketing, and he’s self-published marketing books, novels, hybrid graphic novels, biographies, and a series of children's books. The Neo Noir Hybrid Graphic Novels are story concepts developed with the goal of having them turned into television series or feature films. There are currently ten screenplays four of which have been self-published as hybrid graphic novels: The Method, The Comeuppance, and The Coffin Corner and Grist For The Mill.

Mr. Bader has also written Organized Crime Queens, The Secret World of Female Gangsters, and the soon to be released: What’s Your Poison?

Beating The System

The True Story of a Horse Racing Legend

This is my life. My name and the names of the people and places have been changed for obvious reasons, but the incidents and experiences described all happened. This is real life, not a phony Hollywood version that demands things be packaged in a neat familiar framework with no loose ends. My life is full of loose ends, and many of them are still walking around.


What’s Your Poison? How Cocktail’s Got Their Names

Why do we call mixed alcohol drinks “cocktails”? How do they get their exotic names: names like the Singapore Sling, Screw Driver, the Alamagoozlum, the Angel’s Kiss, the Hanky Panky, the Harvey Wallbanger, Sex On The Beach, the Monkey Gland, the Brass Monkey, the Margarita, the Japalac, the Lion’s Tail, and many, many more? Who makes up these names, where are they invented, why, and how do you make them?  These questions will be answered in “What’s Your Poison?” by exploring the incidents, people, and places that prompted the creation of these exotic concoctions.

From the bizarre world of female Japanese motorcycle gangs to the historic rise and fall of London’s Forty Elephants, the history of female organized crime is both fascinating and strange. These are the stories, both true and legendary of the female crime bosses that broke the mould of feminine gentility. This is The Secret World of Female Gangsters.
