Meet Author Ey Wade

Posted on August 25, 2011


Ey WadeTell us a little about yourself. I was born, reared, and have spent the majority of my life in Texas. That is, if you don’t count the year or so I lived in Alaska as a child. I ran for public office and was a successful activist and volunteer in my community. As a single parent I owned a home-based childcare center, developed curriculums and home educated three daughters who entered college (now graduates) at ages 16 and 17. My writing career as a self-published author began in 2009 when I started self publishing at Wade-In Publishing and  released Beads on a String- America’s Racially Intertwined Biographical History and has continued with the recent publications of fiction novels The Fishing Trip, The Perfect Solution, and The Women of the Hill in 2010 and three picture books in 2011.

Tell us something few know about you. When I moved into my first apartment at 21, I thought I was so grown I
would only drink Perrier water, and smoke (never inhaled) Virginia Slim cigarettes, and ate single serving cans of vegetables. Needless to say, none of that lasted very long.

I love the smell of oatmeal cooking and yet the taste of it makes me physically ill.

The thing that relaxes me the most is cleaning the pool and keeping the water sparkling blue. The closest I want to get to being in the water is no deeper than my ankles as I sit on the steps.

What genre(s) do you like to read? I think this question could be easily answered if it asked me what genre I
‘don’t’ like to read. I have two, fantasy and erotica. I just can’t hang.

What is your favorite novel and why? My favorite novel is The Giver by Lois Lowry. The people are controlled from
the moment of birth, even towards the things they see and believe. I love the fact one person refused to be manipulated.

What was the last novel you read that you enjoyed and why? The Time Baroness by Georgina Ellis is the last novel
I read. I really enjoyed the trip in time because I could ‘feel’ myself in the era in which the character traveled. The book is written by one of the most astounding indie authors I have come across.

What genre(s) do you write? I write fiction-(romance, suspense, and thriller), non-fiction (history, parenting)

Tell us about your latest book? The Perfect Solution is a suspenseful analysis of choices and how those choices affect the people around us. It tells the story surrounding the stories of a child’s stalking and the accidental placement of that child into the stalkers  hands. After working in the childcare profession for over 30 years, a lot of the things I have witnessed are in the book. The YouTube trailer is here.

What other titles have you written? The Fishing Trip (suspense/thriller), The Perfect Solution(suspense/chic-lit) The Women of the Hill (chic-lit) Beads on a String-America’s Racially Intertwined Biographical History(non-fiction)

If you could change one thing about your writing career thus far, what would it be? I would go back to the day Ballantine books wanted my manuscript (The Perfect Solution) and my agent at the time directed me away from them. I would accept whatever terms they wanted.

Where can readers purchase your latest book? Amazon-U.K. Kindle,  Smashwords , Sony or Kobo, Scribed Nook
and iPad here & here.

What do you find to be the best and worst part of being a writer? The best part of writing would be the way characters just flow in my head. The worst is the ‘marketing’. It takes a lot of work and is all a matter of hit and miss.

What do you have on the burner for the next year? I have a chic-lit in the hands of a Beta reader titled D.N.A.

What advice do you have for aspiring authors? My advice to someone wanting to be an author would be, write.
Write and write some more. Edit and then choose your method of publication.

How can readers reach you? I can be reached through my website, Wade-in Publishing, my blog where the characters speak In the Chair, Facebook, and Twitter @ jumpoutheboat,

Thank you so much for the opportunity to share myself and my books with your audience.

Dee here: Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to give us this brief look into your life and your writing.
