Adam Millard was born in Shrewsbury in September 1980, and shortly moved to Wolverhampton. His passion for writing soon became apparent with an old typerwriter and an imagination that could only be described as disturbing yet brilliant. His first break came when his Short story 'What's the world coming to?' was published in Edge magazine in 2003. His first novel 'Only in Whispers' was published the following year by Planetree. Two fantasy/comedy novels followed in 2008. Set in the ridiculous realm of Underland "The Ballad of Dax and Yendyll" and "Grimwald the Great" proved that Adam was a versatile writer and not just a horror hack. His new book "Dead West" see's Adam return to what he does best, gore and suspense. Set for release in early 2011, his zombie-western is a masterclass in horror storytelling. (read less)
Life for Adam usually revolves around music, movies, books, and writing. A true Metal head who loves to play the guitar himself and has an overwhelming collection of music that make his wife’s ears bleed, also a self-professed connoisseur of all films but with a disturbing enthusiasm for everything horror under his skin, quite literally, thanks to his other passion of tattoo’s and tattooing. Adam’s body boasting over 50 tattoo’s (some of which inked by himself) with his back being a show case for all the modern classic horror characters thanks to his brother, Clint’s tattoo skills.
With regard to his own literary hero’s the walls of the Millard household are lined with the likes of Stephen King, Richard Laymon, Dean Koontz, Terry Pratchett, Jack Kerouac and James Patterson to name but a few, however he will read just about anything and is forever bringing home new and old titles for his personal collection.
