Adriana Locke interview On 21, Dec 2019

"Born in a very small town in southern Indiana, Adriana Locke wanted Washington Post, and Amazon Top 10 Bestselling author Adriana Locke leaves her readers wanting for more with every romance book that she be everything from an attorney to an archaeologist to a painter when she was a little girl. Adriana is a very talented writer who knows how to tell a story that will keep you turning the pages. USA Today, Wa writes."
Where were you born? Since how long have you been living in the Midwest?

I was born in a very small town in southern Indiana. I graduated with 24 other kids, most of which had been my classmates since preschool. I moved away for about ten years, first to Phoenix and then to Ohio. I’m back home now.

What did you want to become when you were a kid? Did you ever think of writing a book someday?

I wanted to be so many things when I was a little girl. Everything from an attorney to an archaeologist to a painter. There was a time I wanted to be a writer too. I was just interested in so many different things that it was hard to narrow it down.

How reading has helped you unlock your imagination? What is the first book that made you cry?

Reading has unlocked my imagination, taught me new things and perspectives, and transported me into new worlds. It’s been my love, my inspiration, my escape all of my life. That’s the thing I love about it more than anything—you can find whatever you need in the pages of a book!

The first book to make me cry was The Edge of Never by JA Redmerski. I remember my husband coming in and thinking that someone had died. It was ugly.

Why do you write contemporary romance? What do you hope your readers will learn through your books?

I write contemporary romance to give a little hope to a world that needs it. To make someone smile that’s someone sitting in their car during school pick-up or in bed while their husband or wife is working or maybe next to a sick child at three in the morning. To be a “safe place” for someone to go when they want to feel good.

Are any of the stories inspired by a real-life incident or anecdote?

Many of my stories, if not all, were inspired by something that happened in my real life. This is true of Sacrifice most of all. I was at my oldest son’s very first middle school wrestling meet and another wrestler got injured. That moment sparked the idea for Sacrifice.

Do you need to be in a specific place or room to write, or you can just sit in the middle of a café full of people and write?

I’ve written everywhere. Lots of my books are written at wrestling meets and baseball games. I do prefer quiet, though, and if I’m home, I like to write at my desk.

Landry Family Series has 5 books in the entire series. How difficult it is to relate characters in different books of a series?

I actually find it quite fun and not too hard. Each character really takes on their own personality and it’s fun to get to spend an extended time with them.

How did you begin writing the "Dogwood Lane" series?

That series is inspired by my love of small towns. I think people that are from smaller communities always find themselves drawn back for one reason or the other. It was that idea that spawned the idea for Tumble, the first book in that series.

What is the most important thing about a book in your opinion? Do you proofread and edit your work on your own or pay someone to do it for you?

If I’m reading a book, the most important thing to me is that it’s entertaining. I want to be swept away from reality. If it does that, then it’s a winner.

I do self-edit and proof my own work, but I certainly have people that do those things for me as well. The one thing an author should never, ever go without is an editor!

Who inspired the character of Camilla Landry in "Swink"?

Camilla is really just a figment of my imagination. I wouldn’t say there’s one person that she’s really based on.

How did you come up with the story of "Wherever It Leads"?

WIL came to me in a dream. It’s the only story that I’ve ever dreamed about. I woke up and wrote down the concept but didn’t know how to start it. A few days later, my husband came home from the grocery store and had found a cell phone in the produce section. It was an ah-ha! moment.

Being a USA Today, Washington Post, and Amazon Top 10 Bestselling author, what has been your most rewarding experience?

Oh, wow. I’m not sure. It’s always rewarding when a reader really connects to something I’ve written or when someone says one of my stories got them through a tough time in their life.

What types of books do you enjoy in your downtime? What are your top three favorite books of all time?

I read everything. Biographies, magazines, cookbooks, women’s fiction, mysteries—you name it and I read it. I still subscribe to our daily local newspaper and read it front-to-back every day. Ha! And top three books? Gosh, I don’t think I could name them without feeling guilt for every other book I love.

What are you currently working on? Do you wish to explore any other genre than romance later?

I’m starting two new series right now. Both will debut next year (2020). I’m super excited about them and hope my readers love them as much as I do!

My heart is really in romance, so I don’t expect to switch genres. I hate to say never though!

How did you come to know about AllAuthor? How has your experience with us been?

I found it on Google, actually. And it’s been a great experience!
