Adam wasted much of his youth watching Star Trek on the TV and films like Planet of the Apes and Alien on the big screen. He redeemed himself by becoming a surgeon but has since graduated from writing articles for science journals into writing his own Sci Fi and Alternate History stories. As a writer he is dedicated to giving his readers a great story laced with strong, fun and scary characters.
Descended from Jewish refugees who escaped from the pogroms, he is haunted by the stories of the Holocaust but inspired by heroes who put themselves at risk to save others.
Always a fan of the classics and great story telling, whether it be from ancient Greece, 18th Century Smollett or just really good modern day fiction, Adam has always enjoyed reading. Something clicked a few years ago, and instead of just reading the works of others, he set his creative mind to penning his own story ideas. The journey as a writer has taken him to a number of literary festivals, discussions with agents and publishers, and a lot of research into what makes a really great read. He is a fan of stories with great characters and a great sense of place, and he hopes you will find this in his writing.
Space Taxis, his first novel, is due to be published in November 2020. It was conceived on a car journey with his daughter, Harriet, and together they spent two years working on it (he will write more about how they went about this in his blog and newsletter). It’s an action-packed science-fiction and alternate history story about a 1970s New York cabbie who is abducted by aliens. More about Space Taxis here.
