About the Author

Adam Gidwitz taught in Brooklyn for eight years. Now, he writes full time--which means he writes a couple of hours a day, and lies on his couch staring at the ceiling the rest of the time. As is the case with all of his books, everything in The Grimm Conclusion not only happened in the real fairy tales...it all also happened to Adam. Really.
