Interview with romance novelist Adrienne Davenport

Romance novelist Adrienne Davenport is here today talking about her novel Stranger by Morning.
Welcome, Adrienne. Please tell us a bit about yourself.

Greetings,
My
name is Adrienne Davenport. I am an author of historical and contemporary
romance, as can be seen be my recent works. I have spent most of my life in
Moab, Utah. This is where I currently live with my son, Julian who is the
driving force behind my passion for writing. Though I have been writing since I
was about one, I didn’t really push at my goal until he was born, five years
ago. Since that time I have continuously moved forward, slowly moving forward
with my work. 

When I am not writing, I can often be found reveling in one of
Moab’s many advantages such as bike riding or climbing. Or you might simply find
me enjoying the area’s beautiful scenery, most times with my wonderful son. To
learn more about myself or my books, recent and upcoming, please visit me on
the web at: www.adriennedavenportbooks.com.
This is my official page, or email me at: Adrienne_davenport@hotmail.com. I welcome any feedback and
will try my hardest to give you a swift response. Enjoy the upcoming interview,
I hope to hear from you.
Have
fun,
         Adrienne Davenport
Please
tell us about your current release.
Stranger
By Morning
 is the story of a female reporter named Reese Donavon and the jewel
thief who she is currently tracking. Their story takes them through various
countries such as India, and Venice. All of which could be considered gorgeous
and exotic locations. Along the way Reese struggles, not only to keep track of
the reason for her adventure, but to lose a grasp on her ever slipping heart as
well. Even so, she begins to learn more about her colorful childhood, and
discover that there is more to the story she is after then she originally
thought there was.
What
inspired you to write this book?
Most
of my ideas come to me long before I ever transform them into books. Like most
of the others, Stranger By Morning struck me months before I ever began its
construction. Often times this happens at the most precarious of times, such as
at night, just as I enter the bathroom. As a result, I keep a notebook near me
at almost all times. I can’t put a finger on exactly what my true inspiration
was. Like most, it just sort of hit me. I suppose the one solid thing about the
whole process was I wanted to write a contemporary rather than a historical
romance, so I could prove to my readers that I had far more to offer. Besides
that, as I said above, I have to really go with the flow.
What
exciting story are you working on next?
Recently
I began work on another historical, Risky Invitations set in England, London.
It is based around two figures who acted as minor characters in my first
historical. Their personal story however describes the stimulation it
personally had to offer. Currently, I am working on minor details regarding Stranger By Morning. I will resume work on Risky Invitations in
approximately a month. I’ll have to be honest, I am thoroughly looking forward
to it. For periodic updates check my personal website.
When
did you first consider yourself a writer?
I’d say in about first grade, if not
a little sooner. I didn’t always write novels mind you. I began writing poetry,
which I continued for many years. This I did, for the most part, for fun. Only
when my son was born did I once again start to consider writing as a
professional. Though I always wanted to do so, having my son was the extra
little push I needed to get going. It was the only nudge I needed, as a result.
Do
you write full-time? If so, what’s your work day like?  If not, what do you do other than write and
how do you find time to write?
Currently I am a stay at home mom. I balance my
time between my son and my writing, working one around the other. I don’t know
whether or not you would consider that full-time writing, it is as close as you
get, I suppose. During a normal day, I spend a lot of my time with my son but
when I’m not with him I can be found staring down the line with my computer
working on something to do with a novel. It’s the only way to make any progress.
So far it seems to have worked.
What
would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
That’s easy, I probably have
two actually. I like to tap my finger when I’m editing and I tend to speak out
loud, especially when I’m going over the thesaurus. I didn’t realize until much
later, but this is how my son first learned to speak. The way I looked at the
fact, at least it served two purposes.
As
a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Simple, I have always
dreamed of becoming a writer or an architect. I have wanted to be a writer for
years. It just took me a long time to figure out how exactly to go about it. As
for architecture, I guess it speaks for itself. I just hold out that the
knowledge itself will one day come in handy. One never knows.
Anything
additional you want to share with the readers?
Thanks for taking the time to
read this. If you have any further question for me please send me an email at
the address I listed above. I love hearing from people! Also, feel free to
leave your input, I always welcome reader responses. You can do this via email
or on Facebook, Twitter, or Myspace, all of which I have a page on where I keep
updates. Thanks again and everyone take care!

Thanks for stopping by today, Adrienne. It’s nice to get to know about you and your writing.
