About the Author: My name is Adelia Burke. I grew up in Sparks, Nevada, a suburb of Reno. Reading has always been a passion of mine. Writing is now becoming part of who I am. I write clean suspense, romance and historical fiction.
I adore my family. I met my husband in Reno, and we have been together 33 years. We have three daughters, and two of them are married. My first grandbaby was born in May. My other daughter has a loveable fur baby. Being a grandma is wonderful.
I also enjoy learning about my family history, and I try to incorporate it in most of my stories. I wrote about my parents in the book, THE PERFECT MATCH. My parents stayed married for 49 years until he passed away eight years ago. I thought their love story was so charming I had to share it.
Have you ever met someone and you wonder what events in their past have shaped them into the person that they are now? This is one reason why I like writing. I’m able to shape the persons background and reactions to situations based on the characteristics I choose to add.
I also love to put humor in my books. One of the best feedback I get from my readers is when people let me know how funny it was. When I’m writing funny parts, I find myself laughing out loud, and I’ll say to my kids. “This is so funny.” I can’t imagine writing a book and not being able to laugh.
Some of my other interests include painting. I also like working out, gardening, and traveling. My favorite times of the year are autumn and spring. At some future time, all of my favorite things will find a way into one of my books.
The world is full of challenges, hate, intolerance and fear. I love being able to create a world in my books that is a little more positive, accepting and hopeful. I hope my readers enjoy stepping into the world I create.
