Meet Dee J. Adams

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dee J. Adams.

Dee, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I never really considered writing as an option, but I was an actor and also an acting/dialogue coach for many years, so I think those things contributed to my imagination. An accident on the tennis court put me out of commission and gave me a lot of time I wouldn’t have had otherwise. I had a dream that I couldn’t stop talking about. My husband (probably tired of hearing me talk about it!) said, “Write it down.” So I did. Three weeks and 450 handwritten pages later, I had my first novel. It took a decade before I sold that book, but I’d written more so when it sold, the rest of the series followed. Now I’ve got eleven novels and one unique novelty book (non-fiction) under my belt.

Has it been a smooth road?
I wondered for a long time (years!) if I would ever sell any of my books. The first one to sell was actually my fourth novel. I faced a ton of rejection. One publisher, in particular, kept me on the hook with revisions for two years before ultimately rejecting my book. I learned a lot though…like not to jump through eight thousand hoops before I have a signed contract. Finding the right agent also made a difference. Having people who believe in your work, in your vision, is so important.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I’m an award-winning author of romantic suspense. My books are fast-paced and sexy. Some are darker than others, but all contain humor and lots of dialogue. I tend to slam my hero and heroine together and force them to work out their differences. I’m a big fan of conflict so there’s usually no shortage of disagreements, but happily ever after is my all time favorite thing so that’s a guarantee my readers can count on. I wish regular life ended in happily after ever, but since it doesn’t, I like to think my books are a great escape.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
Oh my gosh… the publishing industry has been changing so fast, it’s almost impossible to keep up. I honestly couldn’t begin to guess where publishing is going because I never it imagined being where it is today. When I first began writing, e-publishing wasn’t even a thing. People have so many choices when it comes to what they want to read and romance readers -especially- are some of the most voracious readers I’ve ever met. (And I LOVE them for it!)
