Mike Adamick is a stay-at-home dad, writer, and inveterate tinkerer whose work regularly appears on National Public Radio, KQED Radio and in the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, and more.
His best-selling series of children’s craft books — Dad’s Book of Awesome Projects, Dad’s Book of Science Experiments, and Dad’s Book of Awesome Recipes — are designed to let kids take the lead, whether they’re working on a fun afternoon craft project, a simple science experiment, or making the family dinner.
His new series, The Adventures of Crash Adams, is meant to help early readers discover a love of books and to help kids of all ages reconnect with nature through fast-paced, thrilling narratives that play out in the wilds of Marin County. Crash Adams is the craftiest 11 year old you’ll ever meet. She escapes cougars, hunts deer, traps rabbits, trains hawks, and so much more. She’s basically what might happen if Jack Reacher grew up on Little House on the Prairie.
Mike lives in San Francisco with his wife, Dana, and their daughter, Emme.
