Interview with Author E. Adamson – Ramona Portelli Blog

Interview with Author E. Adamson

Author E. Adamson grew up in Cheyenne, Wyoming.  She was the youngest child of four, her mom was a housewife and her dad a carpenter.  After graduating from high school, she went to a small community college and her parents decided to move to Florida where her mom was born and raised.  Eventually, all four of their kids followed them.  

It wasn’t long before she met and married an Alabama boy and that’s how E. Adamson ended up in the south, in a small town in Alabama.  She loves it here though and she doesn’t miss the snow at all.  Well, sometimes she does because it is beautiful.  Anyway, she has made a good life for herself here and has no plans to go anywhere else.

She has been seriously writing for roughly six years now.  She writes mostly stories with a paranormal twist, but she sometimes just write regular romance.  All her stories are clean writing (no cursing), with happy endings and she wouldn’t have it any other way.  Writing takes up a lot of her free time, although, sometimes life keeps her too busy to write much.   One day she hopes to see her books on the best seller list, that is her long-term goal for her writing.

Ramona: Tell me more about your latest book

E. Adamson: Right now, I’m writing a story about a gargoyle.  It’s about a man who was cursed because of his wife’s evil deeds.  The curse caused him to be part man and part dragon.  He is a stone a gargoyle statue during the day, but at night he is able to roam freely. Of course, since all my stories are romance, he ends up finding his soulmate almost four hundred years after he was cursed.  They go through some trials, but in the end, love will prevail, and they will have their happy ever after. 

Ramona: What was the most challenging aspect of writing?

E.Adamson: The most challenging part would have to be making my stories longer.  Some of my first attempts were only four or five chapters long and barely 2000 words per chapter.  Sometimes my stories are still really too short, but I’m working on that.

Ramona: What motivated you to become an author?

E. Adamson: I think I always knew I wanted to write.  I enjoyed all the writing assignments in high school where my creativity could flow, and I often dreamed up stories in my head as a way to put myself to sleep.  Then, one day a friend told me I’d never know what I could actually do until I tried.  Her encouragement helped motivate me and she continued to push until I sat down and began to write seriously.   

Ramona: What brought you to write your book/s?

E. Adamson: I had been talking about wanting to write, maybe be published someday.  A friend told me about a couple of different online writing platforms.  After checking them out I decided to give it a try and enjoyed it.  I enjoyed the feedback my readers gave me, and it encouraged me to write even more.  It also encouraged me to think outside the box of what everyone else was writing at the time, that’s how ‘Falling for Different’ came about.  I hadn’t seen many fairy stories and decided I wanted to try my hand at it.  It was my break from the vampire and werewolf stories I’d been writing, and I thoroughly enjoyed writing it.

Ramona: How many books have you written so far? List and name them all here

E. Adamson: Oh, I’ve written a few, some of them pretty bad and I cringe when I look back on them.  However, they helped me figure out just where I wanted my writing to go and brought me to this point, so I guess they served their purpose.  The only book I’ve published though is ‘Falling for Different’.

Ramona: What book or books have had a strong influence on you or your writing?

E. Adamson: I love a good romance and when Harlequin Romance came out with their paranormal romance books that was it for me.  I think reading those stories was what got me interested it writing about vampires and shifters, along with anything else of the supernatural world.

I can’t say there is one specific book that strongly influenced me, but I do know I have two favourite paranormal writers.   That would be Kerrelyn Sparks and her ‘Love at Stake’ Series.  Then there is Christine Feehan and her ‘Dark Carpathian’ Series.  I think reading their writings helped further my interest in the paranormal.

Ramona: What is your advice for aspiring writers?

E. Adamson: Keep writing, no matter how hard it gets, keep writing because in the end it will all be worth it to see you name in print.  Also, find someone who will encourage you when it gets tough because you’re going to need it, I know I sure did and if I hadn’t had my own cheering squad, I probably would have given up early on.
