Adam Glendon Sidwell
In between books, Adam Glendon Sidwell uses the power of computers to make monsters, robots, and zombies come to life for blockbuster movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean, King Kong, Pacific Rim, Transformers, and Tron. After spending countless hours in front of a keyboard meticulously adjusting tentacles, calibrating hydraulics, and brushing monkey fur, he is delighted at the prospect of modifying his creations with the flick of a few deftly placed adjectives. He once lived in New Zealand with the elves, so feels very qualified to write this fantasy series.
Adam also wrote every single word in the Evertaster series, the picture book Fetch, and the unfathomable Chum.

The assembly teaches writing principles such as structure, narrative, and theme; provides real-life writing experiences; and addresses the diverse educational skills required for students to develop their own stories. Using rich visuals from big-name films students know, Adam engages students and reinforces Common Core principles including story structure, moral dilemma and character development, dialog, theme, description and drawing from experience, writing for an audience, and setting writing goals.
