About Alexander Adams
Alexander Adams is a pseudonym for talented narrator Grover Gardner. Working alone in the small basement studio of his home in Maryland, he delivers stories in a voice of sandpaper and velvet. His most high-profile book to date, a career breakthrough, is the special-effects-spiced, unabridged novelization of STAR WARS: THE PHANTOM MENACE, recently recorded in a joint effort by BOT and Random House under the Adams moniker. Here Grover got a rare opportunity to show off his flair for mimicry.
