Tuesday Tidbits with Danger Zone, by Dee J. Adams
Thanks for letting me come play Shannon! I’m happy to be here. Today is the week and a day anniversary of my second release, Danger Zone, and I’m still just as excited as I was on the actual release day.
A little about myself… I moved from Texas to Los Angeles after high school and have worked in show business for over twenty years. I discovered writing about eleven years ago and never looked back. (Now instead of working on one part as I did as an actor, I get to decide what everyone in the book does. It’s very God like and I enjoy it immensely. LOL.)
What made you want to write THIS story?
After writing Dangerous Race, I actually wrote two other books before I thought about Danger Zone. The idea of Mac’s little brother Quinn kind of knocked around in my head, but I knew I needed someone strong to throw Quinn off his game. Ellie was just the girl. Since I work in show business the idea of making a movie really appealed to me too. Ellie’s very close to my heart for several reasons, but the most important is a learning disability we both share.
Tell us about your hero – why is he so special?
Quinn is the ultimate playboy. He’s gorgeous, smart and rich, but it takes a near death experience for him see that life is more than just hopping from one woman to the next looking for the next best thing. He has a heart of gold, but no one was able to tap into it before Ellie.
And your heroine; why is she so well-suited to your hero – or not?
Ellie is perfect for Quinn because she doesn’t care about his wealth. She knows money doesn’t make the person and it’s not what impresses her about him. She is the real deal and once Quinn realizes this, he’s in for the long haul.
What draws you to writing romantic suspense?
That’s simple… I love reading it. I love the adrenaline rush, the need to turn the page and see what’s next. I love when my palms sweat because of what’s happening when I’m reading a great romantic suspense. I love when my heart races just like the hero and heroine. If I can bring any one of those elements to a reader, then my job is done.
What books/characters did you like to read, growing up, and how have they inspired you in writing this story?
I remember reading every Kathleen Woodiwiss and Judith McNaught book I could get my hands on. And then rereading them at every opportunity. Those two women wrote some of the greatest love stories ever written and if I am able to tell a story a fraction as well, then I’m still doing okay.
What are you working on next?
Currently, I’m about half way through a potential fourth book in the Adrenaline Highs series. I don’t want to give too much away in case I decide to toss it. LOL.
