Tips From the Pros: Stacy Hawkins Adams


Davalynn Spencer here, welcoming multi-published author Stacy Hawkins Adams for an encore visit to the Christian Authors Network.

Stacy, tell us how many books you have published and a few of your latest titles.

I have ten books nationally published – nine women’s fiction novels and one nonfiction, spiritual devotional. My most recent title is a novel I released in March 2013, called Finding Home. It is the third book in my Winds of Change series, but as with the first and second books in the series, it is a stand-alone title, so you can start with any one of them.

Tips from the Pros: Stacy Hawkins Adams

"SundinGreetings from Sarah Sundin in California. Today I have the privilege of interviewing multi-published women’s fiction author and speaker, Stacy Hawkins Adams.

"CANStacy, how did you get into writing?

I’m one of those "born writers" – one who started writing short stories and poems soon after I learned to read and write. Throughout my childhood, relatives, friends, and teachers encouraged me as a writer, and I always dreamed of penning books. My love of writing led me into a journalism career, where I served as a newspaper reporter and columnist for thirteen years. I loved that career, but my dream of becoming an author never faded, so I was elated when my first novel was published in 2004.

"CANHow many books do you have published?

I have had eight books published – one nonfiction spiritual devotional book, and seven women’s fiction novels. My next novel – Lead Me Home – is slated for release by Zondervan in July 2013. My other recent titles include Coming Home, which was a 2012 Target Stores Recommended Read; Dreams That Won’t Let Go, The Someday List, and my nonfiction book, Who Speaks to Your Heart? Tuning in to Hear God’s Whispers.
