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

From the Back Cover What do you do when you realize you're not who you want to be? Rachelle Covington has it all. A fabulous home, a handsome and successful husband, two beautiful children, and a place in the upper crust that's quite comfortable. But life is not all it's cracked up to be, and Rachelle finds herself yearning for more. When her husband goes away on a business trip and the kids are sent off to the grandparents for a month, Rachelle heads back to Jubilant, Texas, to visit family and reconnect with her past, her purpose, and herself. But when a blast from the past shows up, Rachelle must confront feelings she thought she'd long buried. Will she give up everything to recover what could have been? Or will she find a reason to plan for the future? Fresh, sincere, and full of hope, The Someday List is an honest look at what makes us who we are.
