Every day is Halloween for author Angela Addams. Enthralled by the paranormal at an early age, Angela spends most of her time thinking up new story ideas that involve supernatural creatures in everyday situations. She believes that the written word is an amazing tool for crafting the most erotic of scenarios.
She is an avid tattoo collector, a total book hoarder and loves anything covered in chocolate…except for bugs.
She lives in Ontario, Canada in an old, creaky house, with her husband and children.
Her destiny is etched in his skin…and carved in her heart.
Order of the Wolf, Book 3
Morgan Stills is a woman without a future. At least, that’s what the carnival psychic tells her. Love is foretold as well, but too bad. She’s already been marked for death.
She no sooner flees the psychic’s tent when she’s confronted by the biggest wolf she’s ever seen. A wolf that talks to her—right before she’s enveloped in a black cloak and dragged away.
Caleb was born for one purpose: follow the burning of his tattoo to find and protect his destined mate, the Huntress. When he rescues her from Lazarus, the king of beasts, what thanks does he get? A swift kick in his tender parts that leaves him writhing in a ball of pain.
Morgan quickly realizes her destiny lies with the Order of the Wolf. The only catch—she must choose between two sworn enemies who vie for her body, heart, and soul. Marked as a Huntress, thrust into an ancient feud between werewolf and Hunter, she must pick up a sword or die. And somehow learn to live without the man she is destined to kill.
Warning: Be prepared for fiery hot, melt-your-panties men, all muscle and sinew, searching for their one true mate. Committed, hot, and horny. What could be better?
Where are you from? Tell us a little about yourself!
I’m from Ontario, Canada and I love it here…cold weather and all. I’m tattooed, I love all things Halloween, and I eat a lot of chocolate. I write paranormal erotic romance and my newest release, Wolves’ Bane is book 3 in my Order of the Wolf series at Samhain.
How do you create your characters?
My characters come to me in two ways: either they start having conversations with each other in my head and assert their personalities that way or they come to me in some kind of action scene. I’ve had both sexual scenes and battle scenes present new characters to me so it’s always an interesting process of discovery! Once I have a good idea of who they are based on their dialogue and/or actions, I start hunting down some pictures to represent them. I like to have a visual in my character profile of very character. I do a rough written profile detailing background, personality traits, and physical description (this all comes in very handy when I need to write up a cover art form). And then I get back to writing about them.
What inspires and what got your started in writing?
I get inspired by the weirdest things. Sometimes a sexy or mysterious picture triggers a flood of ideas, sometimes it’s a conversation with someone at work, other times it’s a show I’m watching that leads me in a certain direction. Most commonly though are ideas that result from my dreams. I have a vivid imagination and often times I get a lot of inspiration from my subconscious while I’m sleeping. The trick is to capture those ideas in enough detail so that I can flesh it out in the story as I’m writing.
Where do you write? Is there something you need in order to write (music, drinks?)
I can write anywhere but mostly it’s propped up in my bed. It’s horrible for my back and neck but it’s my go to place most nights. Sometimes I write at the kitchen table when I’m on “mom duty” and need to keep the food and drink flowing while managing the chaos. I can’t write to music, or at least, I can’t write to music that I love because I’ll get too distracted by the lyrics. I don’t typically eat while writing because I can’t eat and type at the same time so it would slow me down. When I’m editing though…yeah…candy, lots and lots of candy.
What do you like to read?
I read a variety of things from paranormal romance and urban fantasy to thrillers to non-fiction memoirs. I do a lot of reading in my day job and try not to stray too far from my genre for too long. I have the tendency to want to start writing the genre that I’m reading so I make sure to gorge myself on paranormal fiction often.
What would your advice to be for authors or aspiring in regards to writing?
Set goals and stick to them. Treat this like a business. You have a job to do and it’s writing. You need to set aside the time and take control of it. And always be open to learning.
