About Adam

From a young age, science fiction and fantasy–Dr. Who, The Foundation Series, The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars–captivated Adam Holt.

He was raised in Friendswood, Texas near NASA’s Johnson Space Center, where his father worked for NASA in Mission Control during the Apollo missions. He was born into the space program and did not realize how special that was until he ventured into the wide world. “Your dad put men on the Moon? No way!”

He attended Baylor University for his undergrad, SMU for his grad degree, and taught English at Greenhill School in Dallas for a decade; however, he left teaching to devote himself to writing full time as well as sharing his love of human space exploration. He responds to fan tweets: @adamholtwrites.

He travels abroad when he has time and money, loves Victor Hugo and C.S. Lewis, respects Rick Riordan, and loves the crunchy boom of a rocket launch.
