Adam France is a primary school teacher from Brisbane. When he isn't moulding minds, Adam sings and plays guitar in a successful Brisbane band that has supported some of Australia's finest rock acts. Adam also experiments in canvas and print art. All this, whilst juggling family life with his supportive partner, Bree and four-year old daughter, Frankie.
Teaching in a low-socioeconomic area for several years, Adam found many of his students lacked motivation in their reading. This motivated him to create a series of short, funny, relatable stories that not only allowed students to feel a sense of accomplishment but encouraged them to want to read more.
Adam grew up in the small Northern New South Wales coastal town of Sawtell with his parents and three younger siblings.
