Richard Adams

Richard Adams was born in England in 1920 and continues to live in the South of England with his wife. He studied history at Oxford and worked as a civil servant in Britainís Department of Environment, were he developed concerns about the environment that he has conveyed in his books.

His first novel, the popular animal fantasy Watership Down, concerned a group of rabbits whose home was threatened by development. He began telling the story to his two daughters, Juliet and Rosamund, during long auto trips. They insisted that he publish it. After two years of writing he submitted the book only to have it rejected by thirteen major publishers before the small press of Rex Collings took it on. Adams has also published non-fiction books, an autobiography, short stories, and has edited several anthologies.
