Adam J Wolstenholme


Adam J Wolstenholme was born in 1976 and grew up in Leeds. He studied Creative Writing and Literature at Liverpool John Moores University before taking a post-graduate diploma in journalism. He worked for ten years in newspapers in Yorkshire where he was an award-winning columnist, a reporter and news editor. His articles have also appeared in The Times and The Big Issue in the North.

In 2011 he retrained as a teacher and now teaches English at a secondary school.

His short stories have been published in the anthology Eating My Words and on the websites 1000 Words, Brilliant Flash Fiction and Flash Frontier.

Adam cites a wide range of influences including Kingsley Amis, Richard Yates, Nick Hornby and Pat Barker. His writing covers the themes of love, marriage, gender politics and war with, he hopes, a sense of humour. 

Adam also writes songs, plays guitar and sings in local rock bands.

He has two children.

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.
