Adam Elias Zain


Adam Elias Zain was born and raised in the north of England. Primarily educated in Lancashire, higher education study took him to Yorkshire for a few years and then Essex. Zain is a firm believer of continuing education, and further education enabled him to experience Cardiff, Wales. Seeing different parts of the world, and the UK of course, is a hobby of Zain’s, and he intends to see more and more of the world with time.

As a young boy, one of Zain’s favourite hobbies was people-watching. As a grown man, this has not changed and people continue to create a fascination in his eyes. Indeed, this is often the source of inspiration for many of his poems. Every person has a story to tell, and Zain wants to know that story. Zain is always curious to know where people have come from, their backgrounds, their thoughts on life and other matters, and their ambitions. And yes, admittedly, sometimes the truth is not as entertaining as what could be made up, but when the reverse is applicable, it is a delightful treat.

Zain started writing in his late teens, but only recently in February 2014 did he publish his first ebook. From A to Zed and off to bed! is a children’s poetry and rhyme ebook, and this was quickly followed by the exciting release of Reflection Point. Reflection Point is more than a decade in the making and is a diverse collection of Zain’s thoughts and poems. Contemplation Height was released at the same time to deliver a sneak preview to readers who may want an insight into Zain’s style of writing. Zain is keen on rhythm and rhyme, but often breaks away from this style. He also has an interest in Haiku poems, and consequently, dedicates a section in Reflection Point to such writing.

Smashwords Interview

Why do you write?
An artist paints because therein lies enjoyment and satisfaction. A writer writes for the same reason. There's an element of accomplishment when a piece of writing portrays the idea that was in the mind. And when the reader appreciates and enjoys the work, it is most certainly the cherry on the cake.
When did you first start writing?
My first memory of producing poetry goes back to Primary School. Haiku poems, I remember. I felt it was an extraordinary way to describe and create an image or scenario in so few words. It was like art. They say a picture says a thousand words. I say seventeen syllables can say a lot too!
