About the Author
Indie author Adam Dreece created the bestselling Steampunk series The Yellow Hoods — which has become a hit with kids from 9-15 as well as with adult readers. After a solid, 20-year career as a software designer and overcoming a serious illness, he started his company – ADZO Publishing – with his wife in 2014. In short order, he released the first two novels in his acclaimed The Yellow Hoods series — Along Came a Wolf and Breadcrumb Trail – within that first year.
Mixing it up with Steampunk, fantasy, fairytales and legends, The Yellow Hoods series follows Tee, Elly, and Richey – three young friends living in a pre-industrial society on the verge of technological revolution. It’s a fun, fast-paced adventure emphasizing teamwork and family connections as well as empowerment and self-esteem — with a strong, vibrant female protagonist taking the lead in the action. Both books were critically acclaimed bestsellers on Amazon and were followed swiftly by the third book, All the Kings Men, and a novelette, Snappy and Dashing. In August 2015, the first two novels were selected as finalists for the Independent Author Network’s Book of the Year award in the Young Adult/Teen and Fantasy categories, respectively.
Adam’s fourth Yellow Hoods novel, Beauties and the Beast, will be released in October 2015. He currently resides in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with his wife and children. He is an active online mentor at adamdreece.com, and is a busy public speaker, panelist, and author in Canada and the Pacific Northwest. Connect with Adam on Twitter.
