Adam Santo is a SciFi/Fantasy writer who enjoys the quiet moments that everyday life offers to sit idly writing stories. His debut novel, Temperature: Dead and Rising, offering a newly twisted tale about zombies and took the world for a ride they would soon not forget. Santo began plotting out the second paperback novel, Temperature: Bitter Cold, before the ink dried on his first book. Santo continues to write nonstop because he knows there is always a story waiting to get out.

When he is not writing, Santo enjoys quality time with his son and friends, spending the occasional weekend at a movie theater, and reclaiming his youth when his son challenges him to a video game. Santo currently resides in sunny Florida with his beautiful child.

Adam Santo Temperature Dead + Rising (Temperature, #1) by Adam Santo , by Adam Santo, has just received a review from Kirkus Indie:
Santo provides excellent descriptions of magic. He also brings sexy humor to a genre that sometimes takes itself too seriously; after Bo traps her in golden handcuffs, Sally pulls him in for "a deep kiss with longing written across her lips." The author delivers compelling atmosphere; during the opening scene, flickering lights are described in a way reminiscent of the 1979 film Alien.

- Kirkus Review
