Adam Francis Smith

Biography

Adam Francis Smith was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois and has been writing fiction and poetry for over 30 years. He writes in all genres but loves writing horror and fantasy tales that have supremely human characters placed in the most unusual of predicaments. Most of his stories would be right at home in The Twilight Zone, and will appeal to anyone who loves a good twist and a bit of humor. His poetry is almost literal to the point that readers will rarely have trouble knowing what a poem written by Adam Francis Smith is all about. His poetry touches on what it means to be human and showcases the variety of life on Planet Earth, from the spiritual to the corporeal. Nature and man's relationship with nature is also a common theme, but is not so much about man's abuse of the planet, as it is about the planet's abuse of man.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing is the ability to create real characters that have real feelings and face real problems, even if they are in a fictional realm. Sharing my writing with others and showing these characters off is a real thrill.
What do your fans mean to you?
Fans are everything to me. Fans are the feedback that keeps me writing and constantly improving. I love to feed my fans what they need, and they respond. The feedback motivates me to write more and to write better and helps me keep a thumb on the pulse of what's to be expected of me.
