Hey. Thanks for stopping by. I'm Adi (ah-dee), and I write YA and middle grade novels, funny essays, short stories, and plays.


I also edit. I love editing! Recent projects include fiction, nonfiction, dissertations, video games, enhanced books, and an anthropology textbook (go ahead, ask me anything about bonobos).


I earned my MFA in writing at the Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier, and my undergrad degree is in voice. I used to do a lot of theater. I was also a member of, and a soloist for, the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, which is the chorus of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Pops.

Two projects near and dear to my heart: Kidlit603, which celebrates children's/YA authors & illustrators in New Hampshire, and Pet Tails Rescue in Northwood, NH.


I live in the Granite State with two cats who tolerate each other.


Shoot me an email if you have any questions or to let me know how your cats are doing.


Adi Rule is the author of Why Would I Lie? and Hearts of Ice (Scholastic), as well as The Hidden Twin and Strange Sweet Song, which won the 2016 NH Writers Project literary award for Outstanding Young Adult Book and the Vermont College of Fine Arts Houghton Mifflin/Clarion Prize (St Martin’s Press). Adi has led workshops throughout New England for groups that include 826 Boston, the VCFA Young Writers Network, and the NH Writers Project. Her work has appeared in Hunger Mountain journal of the arts and NH Pulp Fiction anthologies. She also contributes essays and features to New Hampshire Magazine.
