Adriana Locke Anthologies
Her town was so small that she graduated with the same 24 kids that had been with her since she entered preschool. Locke left her hometown to make a new life for herself. But after spending some time in Phoenix and Ohio, she came back.
As a child, the author had an active imagination. She wanted to become a writer but it was just one of several career choices she toyed with. Writing had to compete with archeology and painting.
Writing and publishing won out because the author loved books. She was drawn to stories because they provided an escape to new worlds. They also taught her so many things, changing her perspective in ways she couldn’t have imagined. When she entered the publishing field, Locke decided to write contemporary romance because she wanted to make her readers happy.
She saw the stories she wrote as a source of hope, a means of injecting some joy into the lives of people that had so many struggles to contend with. Locke wanted her books to become a safe haven. She succeeded.
The author has an account on every significant social media platform because she loves talking to her readers and hearing about all the ways her novels changed their lives. Her love stories tend to resonate with audiences because Locke takes inspiration from real life.
The things she sees and the experiences she encounters spark her imagination. For instance, she distinctly remembers going to her son’s middle school wrestling meet and then watching as another wrestler was carted out of the school on a stretcher, following an injury.
The image of that young child leaving with a neck brace stayed with Locke. It planted a seed that grew to become ‘Sacrifice’. While the author has a writing desk with a computer, yellow legal pads, highlighters, and sharpies, she doesn’t have a particular spot that she uses to write.
Locke has the discipline to write from any location where she finds herself. If she had her way, she would find a quiet corner. Whenever she’s home, Locke will write at her desk. But more often than not, she writes while attending her children’s sports events.
She edits and proofreads the books she writes. But she has a team that helps her manage the other aspects of her career. When the author isn’t writing, she can be found cooking, walking in the sun, and playing with her kids. As far as her reading habits are concerned, Adriana Locke is drawn to women’s fiction, biographies, and cookbooks. She also reads magazines.
Locke is one of the few people with a subscription to her local newspaper. She reads the newspaper every single day. She encourages her readers to reach out to her on social media.
Best Adriana Locke Books
Locke is a Washington Post, Amazon Top 10, and USA Today bestselling author. Locke’s best novels include:
Crank: Walker and Sienna were a poor match, or so she thought. He wasn’t happy with her. Sienna had done some serious damage to his truck. But the truck was the least of her worries. She couldn’t get enough of Walker.
The mechanic was broody and rough, and he carried the scent of engine grease. But he ignited her desires in ways she couldn’t explain. For his part, Walker couldn’t deny the fact that he wanted her.
Sienna could feel it in his body as she brushed against him. The damage Sienna had done to his truck had been a costly mistake. But it was nothing compared to what she was about to do to him.
Tumble: Neely was desperate. With her job gone, she had no choice but to return to her hometown, if only for a little while. She did not expect to run into Dane Madden. A former bad boy, now a single father, Dane was her first kiss. He had also broken her heart.
And yet, he wanted her as much as she wanted him. They both knew it the moment they locked eyes. Could Neely find it in her heart to give him another chance?
