Adam Kargman

Adam Kargman lives in Los Angeles with his wife and their two children. His recently published children's book, "Abracadabra Whoopsie," was inspired by the sibling rivalry he witnessed between his kids, which led him to wonder what would really happen if one sibling's dream to make the other one vanish came true. His novel, "Nagle's Mercy," was hailed by Kirkus as a "thoroughly enjoyable," "edge-of-your-seat read," with "nonstop action and palpable psychological tension" and was designated a SELF-e Select title by the staff of Library Journal. He has also written and directed several award-winning films.
