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.
