About Lee Robert Adams

I am a writer living & working in Brno, Czech Republic. I write short stories and movie criticism, and I'm currently working on a children's book.

I've been writing since the age of five. As a little boy, I was into dinosaurs, castles, digging holes and riding my bike. I also wrote endlessly, all the way through to my late teens.

I always thought I'd be a writer, but life and circumstance got in the way. For about a decade, I didn't write a single piece of original fiction, other than a silly, rude comedy horror one afternoon in a Prague pub called "The Demon Chimp of Prague".

When I moved to the Czech Republic in 2009, I gradually forced myself to write again, starting with restaurant and movie reviews. After suffering testicular cancer in 2011, I started writing fiction again. It was a long process, but my children's novel, "A Strange & Terrible Wonder", is almost complete.
