Today’s guest author is J. A. Adams. This interview is from the blog tour arranged by Nia Promotions.
J. A. Adams is author of Chameleon, Unfinished Business, and is excited about the re-release of Purple Haze. In Purple Haze, a car accident ends the lives of a young couple and no one suspects foul play until another body surfaces leading the people of Pineview, TX to believe a killer is in their midst. Twins, Landan and Janda Colquin try to uncover the identity of the killer as a complicated haze settles between life as they envisioned and the one that they now know exists
Tell us about Purple Haze.
J. A.: Residents of Pineview, Texas suspect no foul play when a popular young couple dies in a car accident. However, years later, when another friend of Landan and Janda (the Colquin twins) turns up dead, the twins mull over the possibility of a killer in their midst. Fearing for their lives, can the twins and their friends figure out the identity of the killer before there is another murder? For all involved, they soon learn life is seldom played by its precedent rules as a haze between the world in which we live and the one in which we wish we did emerges.
What sparked your interest in writing?
J. A.: I was introduced to books at an early age and have been reading since age four.
Do you have a memorable story to share regarding that moment?
J. A.: In Kindergarten there where 3 of us who could read. Our teacher recognizing this would pull us aside one by one during recess for a few minutes of reading tutoring. I think this introduced me to the fact that there was something extra special about being able to understand those marks on paper.
Do you have any writing rituals?
J. A.: No. But I am a little obsessive because when I start, I just keep going and going. I even wake up at night from sleep with an idea for something I am working up and will actually get up and write.
How long did it take to write Purple Haze?
J. A.: About two years. In the middle of trying to get it finished, I was helping with the planning of my oldest daughter’s wedding.
What is the most surprising feedback you’ve received regarding your work?
J. A.: The positive life changing impact I have had on readers.
What advice would you give to aspiring authors?
J. A.: Never stop writing. Don’t give up on your dream.
