Do you use a pen name and how did you decide on it?
I played with several names and found a couple I liked the sound of. I sent those names to my cps (critique partners) and they agreed that the one on the top of the list was best.
Do you have a muse?
Do I have a muse?? I don’t think so. My stories stem from my creativity. I get an idea and run with it. If I’m too busy with life, my creativity goes into hibernation until I can find the time to sit and put fingers on keyboard.
Are you an outliner, a write by the seat of your pants author, or a combination?
A bit of both. Generally I let the characters go where they want the story to go, but they often run themselves into a corner that I have to figure out how to get them out of. To help out, my outline is like
C1 (chapter one) – she meets him in store
C2 – he is annoyed with her and storms out
C3 – they bump into each other at party
How did you come up with your title?
I wrote A GUY AND A GIRL a long time ago. It’s been sitting on my hard drive waiting its turn. I had to update it, adding things like cell phones. But when I originally wrote it I was stuck for a title. I asked my daughter, 14-ish, for some help. When she asked what the story was about, I replied –A GUY AND A GIRL.
The title just stuck.
What was your favorite scene in this book?
The strip club scene. A friend of the heroine, Chelsea, takes her to a strip club. It turns out the hero, Hunter, works there part time. While Chelsea is interested in Hunter, the reader discovers the friend is too. The part of the scene where Hunter is on stage with a female stripper is also fun.
Now for the fun stuff about the book A GUY AND A GIRL.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I’m Victoria Adams. I live in Ontario, Canada with my husband and pets. Daughter’s grown up and is now teaching. I like to garden, cook and belly dance. In the summer, cars slow down when they pass my front yard and the passengers gaze at my flower beds. Friends love to be invited over for supper as the meal is going to be good, good for you and nowhere near low-calorie! No dieting allowed at dinner parties. As to belly dancing, find a class and try it. It’s a blast!
I’ve been writing since I was little. Being an only child, long car rides were filled with making up stories in my head about the people I saw out the car window. When my daughter was younger, I made up stories that she suggested. I’d say – Once upon a time there was a…. She’d shout an answer – chicken! And the story went from there. Great creativity exercise as it turns out. Now, my writing style has taken a split to contemporary romance for adults and contemporary romance for new adults.
