Adam at work copy 2

I have been meeting people, going places, doing things and collecting stories for a lot of years now, and, if I’m being honest, it never gets old. While these links only offer a glimpse into my work, I believe you will get a good idea of the scope and style … and I hope you enjoy the journey.

I began my career in print media writing features and commentaries for various local and national publications. Here are a few you will enjoy:

You Cannot Do This Job If…

This morning, I received a message from an aspiring professional writer with a question. I thought their question, as well as their follow up to my initial response, were important, so I asked if I could share both their question and my answer.   Q:...

Thank you, Stan Lee… Excelsior!

Thank you, Stan Lee… Excelsior!

Stan Lee, Marvel Comics’ patriarch and father of innumerable modern legends, has died. He was 95, and, in nearly one century on this earth, Lee attained mythic status reserved for those who define industries, genres, and generations of childhoods. There is no doubt...

A Lasting Commission from LtCol Faircloth

One of the highlights of my writing career was the day I got a call from LtCol H. Spencer Faircloth (Ret.), who wanted my help writing a book about his extraordinary life. Spence didn’t land at Normandy on D-Day. He was still a kid, back home in Georgia, collecting...
