ADAM BORBA is the author of the critically-acclaimed middle grade novels OUTSIDE NOWHERE, THE MIDNIGHT BRIGADE, and the upcoming THIS AGAIN?, all from Little Brown Books for Young Readers. He is a graduate of the University of Southern California, and the William Morris Agency mailroom.
When Adam isn’t writing, he spends his time developing and producing movies, most of which have been based on beloved children’s books for Walt Disney Studios. As a producer, he oversees the development of screenplays, physical production, and post production. He walked planks and fought pirates as an executive producer on an adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s PETER PAN & WENDY, directed by David Lowery, with whom Adam chased a mythical creature through the woods of New Zealand for the reimagining of PETE’S DRAGON. Adam worked on the adaptations of Stephan Pastis’s TIMMY FAILURE, Madeleine L’Engle’s A WRINKLE IN TIME (which he executive produced), and Michael J. Tougias & Casey Sherman’s THE FINEST HOURS. He also worked on upcoming adaptations of Megan Whalen Turner’s Newbery Honor winning THE THIEF and Jonathan Auxier’s THE NIGHT GARDENER. His work has appeared in movie theaters worldwide, on Disney+, online, in print, and in local and national media.
Adam lives in California with his wife and two young children (for whom he packs amazing school lunches). His speaking style is warm, conversational, fun, funny, and honest.
