Mike S. Adams was born in Columbus, Mississippi on October 30, 1964.  While a student at Clear Lake High School in Houston, TX, his team won the state 5A soccer championship.  He graduated from C.L.H.S.  in 1983 with a 1.8 GPA.  He was ranked 734 among a class of 740, largely as a result of flunking English all four years of high school.  After obtaining an Associate’s degree in psychology from San Jacinto College, he moved on to Mississippi State University where he joined the Sigma Chi Fraternity.  While living in the fraternity house, his GPA rose to 3.4, allowing him to finish his B.A., and then to pursue a Master's in Psychology.  In 1990, he turned down a chance to pursue a PhD in psychology from the University of Georgia, opting instead to remain at Mississippi State to study Sociology/Criminology.  This decision was made entirely on the basis of his reluctance to quit his night job as member of a musical duo.  Playing music in bars and at fraternity parties and weddings financed his education.  He also played for free beer.

Upon getting his doctorate in 1993, Adams, then an atheist and a Democrat, was hired by UNC-Wilmington to teach in the criminal justice program.  A few years later, Adams abandoned his atheism and also became a Republican.  He also nearly abandoned teaching when he took a one-year leave of absence to study law at UNC-Chapel Hill in 1998.  After returning to teach at UNC-Wilmington, Adams won the Faculty Member of the Year award (issued by the Office of the Dean of Students) for the second time in 2000.

After his involvement in a well publicized free speech controversy in the wake of the 911 terror attacks, Adams became a vocal critic of the diversity movement in academia.  After making appearances on shows like Hannity and Colmes, the O'Reilly Factor, and Scarborough Country, Adams was asked to write a column for the Heritage Foundation's Townhall.com.

Today he enjoys the privilege of expressing himself both as a teacher and a writer.  In his spare time, he loves spending time with his wife, Krysten.  He is also an avid hunter and reader of classic literature.  He is thrilled by the opportunity to publish his first book, “Welcome to the Ivory Tower of Babel”, which is due out in April, 2004.
