Adam Boehler

Biography

Adam published his first book in November, 2013. It is the text version of the first two Selections from Wishes From Hope - DANGLE & ELEVATE. It also includes the original version of DANGLE, which ironically, Adam modified extensively at the suggestion of a children's book agent, who then never bothered to contact him again. It turns out that this version is the one most people (and especially children who have suffered the loss of a parent) tend to prefer.

Adam would like to secure a book deal which would allow him to hire an illustrator as these are meant to be books that should be released in hardback, Obviously, those same illustrations would serve in an e-title edition as well. Adam remains hopeful that he will be able to interest either an agent or publishing company to help him achieve his aims and promote Wishes From Hope to a much wider audience.

In the meantime, Adam continues to work on the text for the third and fourth Selections - VAULT and SHINE. He will self-publish these this year. Hopefully, they will generate the same sort of cult reaction that greeted DANGLE and ELEVATE. Ideally, though, as with every author Adam's ultimate goal is to reach and touch the lives of as many readers as possible.

Smashwords Interview

Who are the cute ones in the newest photo you posted?
The young man is Andrew McCurrach, the child to whom my, DANGLE, 1st Selection of Wishes From Hope is dedicated. His sister, Carrie, is the gorgeous child seated in my lap, quite content to play along; if she remained in the action. The boy taking the photo is Ian, their older brother. Although I wasn't a photo taker, occasionally i would purchase throw away cameras and write picture books based on our adventures. This is from one of those scenes. Everybody was happy, smiling, getting along perfectly - I wonder how much Benadryl I went through that day.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I began writing Dangle ~ Classic in 2004. I had just returned from Los Angeles, where I had gone with the intention of becoming a screenwriter. Instead, to make ends meet, I ended up with a fine corporate job as an Assistant Property Manager in Hollywood, and never really got around to doing any writing or self-marketing. I did find myself in a great number of scenarios and met a wonderfully diverse group of interesting characters, whom I have no doubt will one day make my memoirs.

Landing back in Chicago, I choose the Roger’s Park neighborhood – which is frequently cited as having one of the most diverse populations of anywhere in the United States. It has my favorite beach and park within the city, which is no small feat. I would spend my autumn mornings walking through the park to get to the beach and as I saw the leaves fall I thought you should get a wish if you caught one.
