Member Since
April 2017

AJ Adams married her best friend and moved to the tropics where they are living their own Happily Ever After. She believes writing is not so much a passion as an obsession.

She writes twisted stories of love, mayhem, and murder as AJ Adams and sweet romance novels with strong women and very hunky men as Ellen Whyte, her IRL name.

When she's not writing, she's cooking and gossiping with her friends. She is also personal maid to rescue cats Target, Guido and Swooner.

But only after taking a course in self defense, seeing it's so lethal there. I would set up as a scribe and story teller. That would let me travel about, be useful and do what I enjoy most. I'd start at Brighthelme and then travel up north to Haven and make my way to Skraeling's Point. Because hunky Beasts sound awesome :-) (less)
A.J. Adams Oh yes! Remember Crush and his 'little problem?' It will all come out soon. But the next book will be a Zeta Cartel story :-)

Creating dark yet relatable heroes

Me, burbling about the challenge of creating dark heroes who are relatable. It covers Kyle, Arturo, Quique and Rip from the Zeta Cartel series, and I hint at Jorge’s story, my work in progress.
Note: does not contain spoilers.

“She smelled of vanilla and strawberries. She tasted of mint. It sounds like fruit salad but the effect was sweet, innocent and fresh.”
AJ Adams, The Degas Girl

“I was a good man once, but there's just no getting past the truth. I began by fighting monsters but in the process, I became one myself. There's no going back. The darkness still lies inside me. Sated by a lake of blood, and a universe of screams, it will always be there, black and brooding evil. AJ Adams, Dark Hunter”
A.J. Adams, Dark Hunter

“We'd fought and fucked, but I'd never kissed Rip before. At first he froze, completely astonished, and then his arms were synching around me, pulling me close. His lips were warm, firm, and sweetly exploring. It felt absolutely, totally right. I sank into that kiss, feeling as if I'd come home.”
A.J. Adams, Dark Hunter

“Do you find it easy to get drunk on words?"

"So easy that, to tell you the truth, I am seldom perfectly sober.”
Dorothy L. Sayers, Gaudy Night

“You want to know about anybody? See what books they read, and how they've been read...”
Keri Hulme, The Bone People

“I do know the worst sin--perhaps the only sin--passion can commit, is to be joyless.”
Dorothy L. Sayers, Gaudy Night

“She smelled of vanilla and strawberries. She tasted of mint. It sounds like fruit salad but the effect was sweet, innocent and fresh.”
AJ Adams, The Degas Girl

“It's not the end of the world at all," he said. "It's only the end for us. The world will go on just the same, only we shan't be in it. I dare say it will get along all right without us.”
Nevil Shute, On the Beach
