Adam Blade is in his late twenties, and was born in Kent, England. He grew up surrounded by his father's paintings of historic battles -- which left a lifelong mark on his imagination. As a boy, Adam would spend days making up stories. Eventually, he created a character -- Tom, the bravest boy warrior of them all. The idea for Beast Quest was born. When Adam grew up and decided that he wanted to be a writer, he was stuck for ideas -- until he remembered the imaginary boy he had created when he was young. Adam decided to bring Tom fully to life so that readers could go on the kind of adventures that he always wanted to when he was that age... And still does, even though he's grown up!
