Is there an author that makes you go all "fangirl?"
Nora Roberts, hands down. She’s the bomb-diggity.
If you could co-write with another author who would it be and why?
I know this is cheating the question, but the thought of co-writing with anyone gives me the willies. I just do not play well with others! :)
The world is under attack and you are forced to run for your life. You only have room for one book in your survival kit, what book do you take?
Happy Ever After by Nora Roberts. For years and years the answer would have been Paradise by Judith McNaught, but Malcolm Kavanaugh swept across the page a few years ago and that was it for me!
Who are your favorite literary characters? (Yours or someone else's)
Agent Pendergast from the Douglas Preston/Lincoln Child books, Eve and Roarke from J.D. Robb’s In Death series, Peabody and Emerson from Elizabeth Peters’ Egyptian mysteries, and the Marquise de Merteuil and Vicomte de Valmont are simply fascinating in Dangerous Liaisons.
And to the previous question, Malcolm Kavanaugh….he is just such a yummy hero.
If your friends were asked to describe you in one word what would it be?
Where do you do your best work?
In my office. Something clicks in my brain when I sit behind my desk and it is, hands down, the most productive place that I write.
Do you find it harder to write a full-length novel or novellas?
I don’t find one harder or easier but I do believe you have to think of writing a different type of story in a novella because you simply don’t have the luxury of time. For example, I think reunion stories work in novellas because you give the characters a reason to fall in love quickly.
When did you fall in love...with writing?
On some level I’ve always been fascinated with writing, but I’d say I fell in love in my early 20s. I’d just moved to Dallas and had been playing with the idea of writing a book and that was when I put my bum in the chair and actually did it. Once I actually completed a novel, that was it for me.
Are you a plotter or fly by the seat of your pants writer?
I’m more seat of the pants in the actual writing, but I do plot broadly with a synopsis. I like to think of it as a very broad roadmap that gets my hero and heroine from A to Z. Then once I start writing they end up taking a heck of a lot of detours!
What is your favorite thing to do outside of writing?
Lots of things! I firmly believe it’s important to have outside interests – it helps refill the creative well. I’m a big reader, movie watcher and music lover. I love restaurants and wine and I really enjoy recharging with family and friends.
Favorite color: Green
Favorite food: Italian
Boots or heels: Heels
eReader or Print: Both
Social Media: Love it or Hate it? I love meeting new people and getting to know them and social media provides a way to do that…but I don’t think it should interfere with actually engaging with, talking to or hanging with the people I know away from my computer screen!
Beer, Liquor or Wine: Wine, wine, wine…did I say wine? :)
Favorite place to get it on besides the bedroom: There’s nothing like a fun romp in the car.
Favorite TV Show: Castle
Favorite Book series (besides your own): The In Death series by J.D. Robb
Pj’s or Lingerie: Depends on the evening
Vampires vs. Shifters: Vampires
Favorite Genre: Romance – and I love every subgenre within romance!
Addison Fox can’t remember a time when words weren’t part of her life. An avid reader, her love of the written word started at the tender age of one with The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear (a poem she could recite by heart to any family member who would listen.) Dr. Seuss, C.S. Lewis, Judy Blume and a host of others quickly followed until she discovered THE CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR by Jean M. Auel while writing a paper at the library in the seventh grade. Although not a classic romance, Ayla and Jondalar’s love story moved her firmly into the romance section and she hasn’t looked back!
Her paranormal romance series, The Sons of the Zodiac, launched with NAL in March of 2010. The series recounts the adventures (and path to true love!) for an immortal band of warriors, granted the powers of their astrological signs and charged with protecting humanity.
Beginning in November 2011, Addison will have a new contemporary series on shelves as well. BABY IT’S COLD OUTSIDE is the first in the Alaskan Nights series. Set in the fictional town of Indigo, Alaska, a couple of city girls are about to learn that the wide open spaces of Alaska just may hold everything they’re looking for.
Addison lives in Dallas. She loves to get email from readers.
