After 25 years of writing short stories that he only shared with friends, Adam Dreece changed his life and direction in 2014 when he wrote and indie published the first two books in his young adult series, The Yellow Hoods. Both books have been repeat Amazon Best Sellers as well as a Calgary best seller (Dec 2014).
His views on young adult fiction are pretty clear from the reviews of his books, they should be stories that are for everyone, young and mature alike. Adults enjoy The Yellow Hoods’ highly layered nature, picking up some more serious as well as humour themes and moments, while the younger crowd can’t get enough of the epic adventure.
A graduate from Canada’s prestigious University of Waterloo, Adam’s career as a software architect has included a silicon valley startup and working as a principal consultant for Microsoft. He started taking his writing seriously after a bout with terrible pain and being hit with severe asthma. These days he’s a full-time author and calls Calgary, Alberta home. His wife and three kids are as much his passion as writing, and he engages with his following on Twitter pretty seriously.
Currently he’s working on a novelette in the series as well as books 3 and 4, all due to be released in 2015.
