Author Interview ~ Nancy Adams @Nancyadams_A
Hello and thanks for stopping by and visiting with me and the bunnies. It is so nice to have Nancy Adams here. Readers I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did. Oh, hold on Nancy Adams every time someone new stops by the dogs and bunnies go crazy.
Thanks so much for having me today!
What do you do when you are not writing?
I have two very busy kids and two dogs, one of which is a new pup. So I’m doing a lot of training right now…Ha! Who am I kidding I don’t think I’ve stopped training since I got married. LOL
Where do you get your ideas?
Ideas for me come from any where. The idea for EXTINCT came from a sign that warned us to ‘BEWARE OF THE WOLVES’. Although I do get a lot of good idea for new and currect stories when I’m in the shower. Weird right!
Can you tell us about your challenges in getting your first book published?
This is a bit embarrassing, my challenge was making my books sexy enough for Totally Bound. What caught me by surprise was when my editor asked me to smut up my story. My first book No Matter When was a romance not an erotic romance, so it took me a bit of time to up the smut level where I was comfortable with the love scenes and where my editor was happy. I didn’t want the most important part of the book to be tacky or gross.
Although now, I’m happy to report I don’t have a problem writing all the juicy sex scenes.
If you had to go back and do it all over, is there any aspect of your book or getting it published that you would change?
I wish I would have read up on what to do after my book was accepted by a publisher.
You see, getting my book published by Totally Bound was a lucky break. I submitted No Matter When to them under the assumption that they would pass on it but would hopefully give me feed back, which was what I was looking for. I never expected them to accept and I was completely unprepared for it. The TB gang was fantastic though and they helped me with all my questions.
What book would you like to read again?
I re-read many of my books all the time. But my absolute favourite is Ransom by Julie Garwood.
Do you buy a book by the cover?
No…never. But I will admit a nice cover will peek interest and once the reader has picked it up the story itself needs to seal the deal.
Do you have a book trailer?
No I don’t.
What are your thoughts on book trailers?
They’re okay. I get the idea of having one made but I haven’t seen one that does justice to the story.
Do you write under a pen name?
Nope! I was going to but the only name I like was my grandma’s name but sounded much to old.
Do you ever write in your PJ’s?
Yes! After I come home from dropping the kids off at school and taking the dogs for a walk I will sometimes go put my PJ’s back on. Not in the warmer months, usually just in the cold months.
If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future?
The past. I would love to travel to the 16th century England to see if what I picture in my head is accurate.
If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 things would you want with you?
My pillow, a good anthology and one of my dogs.
What is one book everyone should read?
Lightening by Dean Koontz. It’s the best story and has something for everyone.
What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
It’s a tie between Pralines & Cream and Peanut butter Chocolate. I discovered that I couldn’t have one with out the other when I had a part-time job at Baskin Robins in high school.
Night owl, or early bird?
One food you would never eat?
Rice a Roni. I hate the stuff, I can’t even be in the same room when it is being cooked, the smell makes me gag. My brother is the same way.
When people chew with their mouths open. Yuck! So gross.
Where is one place in the world that you would really love to visit someday?
Do you prefer coffee, tea, or hot cocoa?
All of the above.
Red, or white wine?
What is your favorite gadget?
My Black n’ Decker space heater!
What is your favorite type of pet?
Do you prefer print books or ebooks?
What is your favorite color?
What was your first date like?
We went to see Totally Recall…the movie was good!
Who is your favorite singer?
Adele’s pretty good but I also like boys from Linken Park too!
What are you scared of? Bugs, Snakes?
I hate any type of BUGS!!!
What do you collect? Trinkets? Books? Gadgets?
What type of books do you enjoy reading?
Anything with a romantic twist.
Who is your favorite actor?
Maureen O’Hara. I just lover her feisty attitude.
What is your favorite movie?

What was your first job?
Movie rental store. Remember those?? LOL
What types of books do you write?

Theo’s sole purpose for the last ninety-eight years was to protect his wolf. That changed the moment he met Drew and the wolf called ‘Mate’.
Carrying the soul of an extinct wolf alongside your own isn’t easy. Swapping into said wolf is even harder. Ask Theo Grey—he’s been doing it for ninety-eight years. Yet, after surviving two world wars, witnessing the space race and patiently enduring the eighties, you’d think he’d have seen it all, but nothing could have prepared him for meeting Tofino’s new vet, Drew O’Bannion and according to the wolf, his mate.
Drew loves her dog, sleeping in and coffee. She also loves being a vet. The main reason behind her accepting the veterinarian practice offered to her from a family friend. Hoping for a slower pace at life Tofino seemed the ideal spot. What she didn’t expect was Officer Theo Grey. Theo is tall, dark and drop dead gorgeous, a definite 10 on the ‘wow’ scale. Regardless of his looks, there is more to Theo, there is her unexpected attraction for him. It’s unnerving and completely out of character for her, but she is able to match Theo’s hungry kiss, for hungry kiss.
With their desire growing at an alarming rate and the threat of an unknown shooter roaming the woods of the coastal town, Theo must face the ultimate decision—let Drew go for her own safety or claim his mate for all time.
Reader Advisory: This story contains scenes of violence and threats of non-consensual sex
“I need you to keep an open mind, Drew. Do you think you can do that?”
She blinked again, surprised by his question. A question she had never been asked before.
“I think so, yes.”
He narrowed his eyes, studying her intently before nodding. “Hold on to the good feelings, baby. It will help push the nervous ones away.” With that said he stood and walked to the bookshelves on the other side of the room. He pulled the copy of Peter Pan from the shelf then walked to his bag and pulled a large leather book free. He stopped in front of her once again, and after she sat up and covered her breasts with the blanket, he gave her the books then sat at the small table.
“Read the inscription in the front of Peter Pan first.” She nodded and opened the old book, flipped through the first few pages until she saw the most elegant handwriting.
She began reading the message.
“April 15th, 1911
I know how much you enjoyed seeing the play with your father so many years ago. When I heard that Mr Barrie’s play was becoming a book, I requested a copy for you, so that you might read it whenever you want.
Happy Birthday, my darling son.
Drew paused and looked up. “Who’s Percy?”
“I’m Percy.” He rested his elbows on his knees and sighed. “Percival, actually.”
She raised a single eyebrow in doubt. “Percival? But you said…”
“Theodore is my middle name. My family called me Percy when I was living at home.” He nodded toward the much larger book sitting next to her. “Read the next one out loud.” He clasped his hands together. “Start from the beginning.”
She nodded and did as he had asked. As she began reading, she had the distinct feeling that she had seen this same handwriting before.
“My full name is Percival Theodore Grey. Yes, Percival or Percy to my family and close friends. Thankfully, I haven’t been addressed by my full name since before the war. I was born 15 April 1885 in London, England, to Lord Theodore Grey…”
AUTHOR Bio and Links:
I am a full-blooded Canadian, right down to the maple syrup running through my veins. I enjoy watching hockey, but despise skating…and the cold. I enjoy a good helping of Tourtiere with a side of Poutine as must as the next person, yet I am only bilingual when it comes to swear words. I am proud to say I survived my token shot of Newfie Screech, although I did refuse to kiss the Cod – that is never going to happen – and I openly admit, that I fell in love with the Rocky Mountains the first time I saw them.
I have many occupations written down in my passport, mom, wife, author…zookeeper! However, I have to say that writing is by far the easiest part of my day.
I have three small -but legal- addictions: bed lines, lavender, and books. All of which, are replenished on a regular basis. Reading into the wee hours of the morning, is one of many bad habits, next to spontaneously rearranging furniture and randomly painting rooms in my house.
