About the Author

Adam Robarts was born in London and raised in Uganda and Kenya before moving back to the UK to read architecture at Cambridge University. In 1993, he moved to China to teach architecture at Tsinghua University in Beijing. Two years later, Adam was awarded the state-level Friendship Award - the highest honor China gives to foreign experts. In 1997, Adam and his wife, Karyn, opened their architecture and design studio in Beijing and, in 2007, Adam was inducted as an honorary member of the Interior Design Magazine Hall of Fame, awarded to outstanding designers for their significant contribution to architecture and interior design. Adam and Karyn have four children who were born and raised in China. They currently live in Bali, Indonesia, with their youngest son.
In December 2018, during a family vacation in Canada, Adam was asked what he would choose to be if not an architect. He replied, without hesitation, "A hospice nurse." Five years earlier, he'd had a profound experience accompanying his father through the final weeks of life before he died of cancer in Uganda. Adam could not have imagined then that nine months later he would begin to accompany his 19-year-old son Haydn through a similar battle.
Nineteen, is Adam's first book. It is written in collaboration with Karen Malmqvist and Lou Aronica.

Karen Malmqvist is a recognized journalist, photographer and public speaker. She has written for leaders of nations as well as Fortune 500 companies around the world. She is the co-founder and Executive Director of live it up! and a high-altitude mountaineer.

"Haydn's example is pure inspiration."

--RAINN WILSON, actor, producer, author of New York Times bestseller, SoulPancake: Chew on Life's Big Questions
"This deeply thoughtful tribute by a mourning father teaches us that with profound faith, the astonishing light of the soul will show us the way, even in the darkness of an inevitable and inconsolable loss." --PAYAM AKHAVAN, international human rights attorney and former U.N. prosecutor at The Hague; author of the bestselling In Search of a Better World: A Human Rights Odyssey
"A book so heart-nourishing and mind-expanding that its words transcend the pages, flow into our hearts, and blossom with a renewed energy to live - truly and fully - with love, joy, and purpose. Haydn was wise beyond his years, and Nineteen will transform your life."

--JUSTIN BALDONI, filmmaker, social activist, author of Amazon Editors' pick (2021), Man Enough: Undefining My Masculinity
