Getting Freaky with Maggie Adams! Everything you every wanted to know about Maggie and maybe a little more. Nothing freaky, I just wanted to grab your attention, did it work?
Wow, our third interview! They seem to be getting wilder by the week. Who thought we would top Kendall Grey on the freaky scale? Well, we have done it, Maggie Adams has surprise us with her kink and love for the erotic, say what? No lie!!! I'm telling you, I could not even include it all, this woman and her books, I have to fan myself!!! She comes across all mild mannered and sweet. In fact, she is really sweet but don't let that fool you! No ma'ma, no sir! This woman knows how to steam up a kindle, I thought I was going to have to charge her for water damages, wait a minute, that might be too much information. Let's just get on with this before I get myself any deeper.
At the moment, two books from my Tempered Steel Series are available.
Whistlin’ Dixie is book one, and tells the story of eldest Coalson brother, Mac and his determination to catch a vandal while, at the same time, woo the heart of the sexy, sassy, new kindergarten teacher, Dixie Harris.
The second book in the series continues the quest for the vandal as well as introduces the reader to Sam Coalson and Angel Devereaux, high school sweethearts torn apart due to a misunderstanding. They try for a second chance at love, but mistrust, and a murderer, may stand in their way.
And I’m proud to say that the third book in the series, Something’s Gotta Give will be released at the end of June. Chance Coalson, the Casanova of the County, will try to mend his womanizing ways to win the heart of shy childcare owner and volunteer firefighter, Georgia. Sparks definitely fly, but Georgia’s been burned and it’s up to Chance to heal her heart.
What does your writing process look like?
A giant mess of notebooks, post its and scribbling on various pieces of paper. I have an outline of the story in my head, but once I start putting it to paper, the characters kind of take over.
Do you dream about them too? I've been dreaming about your new character Chance ever since I read about him in Leather & Lace, just sayin'.
Do you have any strange writing habits (like standing on your head or writing in the shower)?
When I’m sitting at my desk, not really. I like classical music so I can remember what I want to say and how to say it. However, plotting out conversations, etc., I put on headphones, turn on Pandora and scroll until I find something that fits the mood of the plot, and I create dialogue that way.
Not unless the washing machine’s broken.
So, for the really steamy scenes do you write while sitting on top of the washing machine? What? What's wrong with asking that? Never mind, gee wiz.
Just as your books inspire authors, what authors have inspired you to write?
Kathleen Woodiwiss was my first author, The Flame and the Flower, still one of my top five best. Jayne Ann Krentz, she can take you to regency England, then the future, or a trip down the road in the present; Lexi Blake and Shayla Black because they pushed the envelopes in erotic romance and I love them for it.
I see you mentioned erotic romance, you freak. Is that where the washing machine come into play? What, I can't ask that either? What kind of interview is this?
If you could cast your characters in the Hollywood adaptation of your book, who would play your characters?
I’ve got a series, remember? lol Okay, I’ll give you MY ideas on who the characters showed be played by:
Mac Coalson – Joe Maganiello
Dixie Coalson – Miranda Lambert
Hank Coalson – Tom Selleck
Ginny Coalson – Goldie Hawn
Sam – Charlie Hunnan
Angel – Blake Lively
Chance – Henry Cavill
Georgia – Kate Upton
And that will have to do until the rest of the series. lol
Do you choose the names based on liking the way it sounds or the meaning?
The way it sounds.
Do you have any name choosing resources you recommend?
Nope. Just plenty of family with plenty of opinions.
What about the name Renee?
Renee is a femme fatale. A swanky seductress who lures men to her bed like bees to honey, but always leaves them with a smile.
So, we are doing away with Georgia???? I think Renee and Chance deserves, well, a chance. Can I get a vote on this? I bet I could leave him with more than a ...... oh there is my husband, I'll get back to you on that.
If you could be a character in any novel you've ever read, who would you be and why?
That’s a hard question because for a while you become a part of the story when you’re reading. At least I do.
Okay, he is gone now, can we get back to the Georgia thing? No? Why do you keep shaking your head and crossing your arms?
What do you consider to be your best accomplishment?
Without a doubt, my kids. I didn’t have a great childhood, so I took all the things NOT to do and did what I felt in my heart was right. And they are fantastic adults.
Have you always wanted to write?
Yes. Making up stories helped me through the tough times in my childhood.
it’s a business doing pleasure with you. Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.
I'm seeing a pattern here again, just pointing out the obvious.
While we are talking about movies, go ahead and watch her fan made videos....
Because I’m a nice lady with a filthy mind?
You're right about that, one point for Maggie.
Tell us about a unique or quirky habit of yours.
I dance when I cook. I don’t mean a simple hip movement, I get into that sh*t.
I bet you do, I just bet you do!! Would that be dirty dancing with the attractive man over forty your always talking about? Is that bumping and grinding? Hmmmm? I kid, I kid!!!
Rudeness. Just no call for it.
I'm sorry, I've just been teasing you! I really love you!
Joe Magenello. Why? Have you seen him???
Can we share? Please? I said I was sorry!
I guess I've tortured you enough Maggie, we might have to come back to her at a later date because she was just so much fun to interview!
Writing has always been my dream, with reading my favorite hobby. When I’m not writing, I can be found singing, dancing, and cooking, often all at the same time. I try to include a little bit of my life in everything I write, so when you read my books, keep your eyes wide open - I'm in there somewhere! Happy reading!
