Adam Lewis Schroeder
Raised in Vernon, BC, Adam Lewis Schroeder has traveled widely. He is the author of the short fiction collection Kingdom of Monkeys, shortlisted for the Danuta Gleed Award, and the novels Empress of Asia and In the Fabled East, which was a finalist for the 2011 Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best Book, Canada/Caribbean region. His latest book, All Day Breakfast (Douglas & McIntyre), is a change of pace, a gory and surprisingly heartfelt zombie novel, whose “razor-sharp literary prose…makes detached limbs and coagulated purple blood downright charming” (The National Post). Schroeder teaches creative writing at UBC Okanagan, and lives with his family in Penticton, BC.
