Inspired by his childhood adventures roaming the bayous of Southern Louisiana, Ryan Adam became an author and screenwriter. His writing draws on his extensive knowledge of Louisiana culture, which he acquired growing up in the heart of Cajun country and working as a concierge in New Orleans. A lover of books since he was a child, Adam hopes to educate others about Cajun traditions and practices through his work. He has published several short stories in Delgado Community College's award-winning literary magazine, Images. He frequently dabbles in Southern and Cajun-ized verse, and he enjoys putting a fun spin on classic tales. Adam was a semifinalist at the 2006 Writers Network Screenplay and Fiction Competition in Los Angeles and pursues his love of movies by working as a film-production assistant. Two of his screenplays were also reviewed by the Disney Studios Writers Fellowship program. Aside from screenplays and children's literature, he also writes horror stories. Adam enjoys researching the history and customs of his Cajun heritage and has also studied children's literature and French and German literature for several years. He lives in New Orleans, Louisiana.
