Anna J. Adams


When I'm not writing and fostering kittens, I teach, parent, read, watch hockey and scrounge the house for hidden chocolate while sipping on coffee out of a Disney or Harry Potter mug.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
I wrote a few Harry Potter Fan Fics and the ones I enjoyed the most were Draco and Ginny based. However, once I began writing Draco and turning him from the kid we know from "Harry Potter" into someone we couldn't hate, I began to seriously change who Draco really was...making him into something that didn't resemble Rowling's character at all. A friend who was writing Harry and Hermione Fan Fiction suggested since Draco was so "out of canon" that I make him into my own character.
So, I wrote a scene in which "Sam" is making fun of a new foster child in the school. Once that scene was written (one of the first times you read about the three of them--Sam, Rob and Lane--in LANE CHANGES) the rest of the story fell into place and I put FanFiction behind me and moved forward with my LANE CHANGES characters!
When did you first start writing?
I was a young teen and upset I hadn't been kissed. For some reason, I thought all 15 year olds had been kissed except me, so I took my frustrations out on scrap paper one summer. I would write out the typical "teen girl likes a boy, becomes friends, gets kissed" and then I'd stop and write another story! Before I left for college, I trashed them all not wanting my parents to go through my room and find them!
I didn't write anything for about 12 years (not counting college work) until I began writing Harry Potter FanFiction around 2004. Then around 2005, I wrote my first non-fanfic story which is still sitting in my STORIES folder. I began working on LANE CHANGES around 2006 when it was originally called FOSTERING ROB. Since then, it has had at least five beta readers, numerous edits, a professional edit and is now published for anyone to read!
