Frank Adam (August 18 1968, Bruges) is a Flemish author, mostly writing plays and philosophical works. He began writing in 1992. He is a member of the editorial team of the Dutch-language literary periodical De Brakke Hond and is a teacher at the writers academy in Bruges.

Adam studied Arabic, Ancient Greek, Germanic languages, and literature.


He began his writing career in 2001 with the book Waarom ik altijd née zeg ("Why I always say no") to answer his son Dante. His 2002 book, Mijn mond eet graag spinazie maar ik niet ("My mouth eats spinach alright, but not me") looks through a child's eyes at the bizarre world of grown ups. This book was also turned into a children's play. De passie van de puber ("The passion of a teenager") received the Knokke-Heist prize for best children's book of 2006.
