Adam S. Leslie


Adam S. Leslie is a novelist, screenwriter, musician and singer-songwriter. He also once spent a morning as a stuntman on a major Hollywood movie, but his scene was deleted.

Covering a broad range of styles, his native genres include magical realism, conceptual science fiction, puzzle-box thriller, satire, experimental, surrealist comedy and the occasional foray into the spookier end of horror.

His first novel, Kaleidoscope, was published by Crooked Cat in August 2013.

Adam likes cocktails, cakes, old records, racing cars, the Marx Brothers and snails (but not to eat).
