About Me

Adam D. Jones, M.A.

I’ve always been a storyteller, but I didn’t bother writing any of them down until my middle school newspaper asked for fiction submissions. They accepted my very important story about a dolphin outwitting a shark, and then I saw my words in print for the first time. Ever since, all I’ve wanted to do is write more very important stories.

Besides fiction, I’ve also done my time in the academy, where I lectured students, researched some of history’s more obscure figures, and published a thesis on medieval historiography that (amazingly) is listed on Wikipedia as something authoritative. (It’s easier to find my thesis on German academic sites. I can’t decide what to make of that.)

I even wrote a board game or two, and then spent some time writing ads for businesses, big and small, and later helped a silicon valley startup with a book catalog. But fiction is more fun, and this site is all about the stories I’ve been wanting to tell since I was old enough to hold a pencil.

I also love to travel and to feel manly by wrestling my cats. I usually win. If you want to make sure not to miss out on my books, or if you want to see where I go and get pictures of my unathletic cats, be sure to sign up for the mailing list.
