Intro for Allie K. Adams

I've been reading romance novels for as long as I can remember. I dabbled in writing for the first time in the 7th grade, when the book I had just finished had the most awful ending--the hero and heroine did not end up together. I must have my Happily Ever After (HEA)! I felt cheated! After days of whimpering and whining to my friends and family, someone suggested I rewrite the ending if I hated it that much. So I did. And thus my journey began...

I wrote my first full length novel in 1995; a historical set in the Pacific Northwest. After completing a few other historicals (try fourteen!), I tried my hand in paranormal and had a blast playing around with time travel. Around the same time frame, I joined my local Search And Rescue (SAR) and discovered my true passion--suspense.

My first contemporary romantic suspense novel, RESCUE ME, is set on the coast of Washington State, where I grew up. I haven't decided whether I'd like to create a series of SAR books, but am leaning very strongly toward writing another. Having been in SAR for a number of years now, it is something near and dear to me, and something I want to share with others.

From the instant I picked up my first "secret government agency" book, I was hooked. I love the plot twists and turns, the danger and intrigue. I knew I had to write one. I created the National Agency of Safety, Security, and Defense, or NASSD, and got down to business. Once I completed AT ANY COST I couldn't stop at just one NASSD novel. I fell in love with the characters and their plights. The secondary hero demanded his own story (how could I deny him?), so I continued his story line in SEEK AND DESTROY, which introduced the McKoy Family. With seven children--three mischievous girls and four very bad boys--I have enough to keep me busy. I'm currently in the process of completing IT TAKES TWO, the third book in the NASSD series.

I live in the beautiful mountains of Montana with my spousal unit (see my blog at for the explanation) and kids. Thank you for taking the time to read about me. If you'd like more information about me or any of my books, please visit
