Interview with Published Author Adele Dubois

Adele Dubois

 

When did you first decide you wanted to write?

I knew I wanted to write by around age nine or ten. I used to lie on the floor of my room with a copybook and pencil and write stories and poems for hours. My first short story was published at age nineteen in a newspaper Sunday magazine. I continued to write non-fiction for newspapers and magazines for years afterward before turning to fiction. I don’t self-publish, but I have reissued two previously published erotic romances after revising and expanding them with bonus scenes and changing the covers. That alone was a huge challenge!

What is your favorite genre to write?

Contemporary romance with a bit of suspense or a hint of magic is what I most like to write.

What is your favorite genre to read?

When I’m not reading romance novels I read thrillers and mysteries. Can’t get enough of them, especially thrillers.

Do you have a favorite author?

I’ve read most romance authors, but don’t want to hurt feelings by singling out my favorites, since I have many author pals in the industry. Let’s just say I love them all.

Is there something you want to write about, that you haven’t yet?

I’d like to write a really good mystery, but probably won’t. There are plenty of excellent mystery writers out there already.

What is one silly fact about you?

   I like to sing loud to songs on Country radio while driving with the top down on my convertible.

Do you have a favorite character you have written so far?

  All of the protagonists in my books have personalities and physical attributes that suit their roles in my stories. I admit I developed a crush on Sonny Wild Horse Hendricks, the Native American hero in my contemporary paranormal erotic romance Desert Wild. In my imagination, Sonny looks like actor and model Rick Mora. Rick appears on my bookmark Desert Nectar, the trade paperback compilation of my e-books Desert Fever and Desert Wild.

 Since I’m partial to blond-haired men, my hero Jack Harris in Intimate Art is another strong favorite. In real life, he’d be the guy I’d probably end up dating.

Is your writing influenced by people in your life?

My characters are all figments of my fertile imagination. However, a few have qualities similar to interesting people I’ve met in my life.

Any advice that you can give to the readers of my blog??

   My personal approach has been to make as many friends in the industry as possible. I do my best to stay positive and remain focused on my work. Good karma is a valuable asset in publishing.
