Issac Asimov, Anne McCaffrey, Melanie Rawn

Member Since
December 2014


In early 2005, Adam read what he considered to be a pretty awful book and said, "Hell, I can do this." Since then he's learned a good deal of humility and to truly love all things writing. His short stories can be found all over the web and his gladiatorial fantasy novel "Sol of the Coliseum" was released by Mirror World Publishing in September 2015.

Having lived all over the country, Adam recently returned to Colorado where he and his wife welcomed their daughter into the world. When he's not at work as a biologist, he's usually reading, writing, hiking, or cooking, often while enjoying a craft beer.

Adam hopes you like his stuff and are generous enough with your time that you'll leave an honest review.
