All About afox

Addison Fox can’t remember a time when words weren’t a part of her life. An avid reader, her love of the written word started at the tender age of 1 with “The Owl and the Pussycat” by Edward Lear (a poem she could recite by heart to any family member who would listen). Dr. Seuss, C.S. Lewis, Judy Blume and a host of others quickly followed until she discovered THE CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR by Jean M. Auel while writing a paper at the library in the 7th grade. Although not a classic romance, Ayla and Jondalar’s love story moved her firmly to the romance section of the bookstore and she hasn’t looked back!

Her debut novel, WARRIOR ASCENDED was published by NAL in March 2010. WARRIOR ASCENDED launches her series, The Sons of the Zodiac, about an immortal band of Warriors, granted the powers of their astrological signs and charged with protecting humanity. The series blends sizzling paranormal romance with the myths of the ancients.

Addison lives in New York City. You can find her at her home on the web at

The Community of Entertainment

A few days ago the new Star Wars trailer released. The internet blew up immediately and by this past weekend a ton of memes, shout outs and general excitement pervaded any discussion of the film online.

The Kill Shot

During the Winter Writing Festival I was in the chat room one night and we got to talking about our works in progress. While there, I mentioned that I hit a point in every single manuscript where I want to kill both my characters. Give ‘em both a big ‘ole Thelma and Louise over a […]

What Was Your First Romance?

As readers, we have lots of memories of the books we read. Swoon-worthy heroes. Great kisses. Heroines we root for. We all have books we love and scenes that strike us in a particular way. I was thinking about this recently when I was discussing favorite romance novels with a friend. I’ve been reading romance […]

I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends

As I thought about what I wanted to write about today, I realized I had a ready-made story. I spent this past Monday with my critique partner, Allie Burton. Although we became critique partners when we both lived nearby, life and moves have conspired to put us 1,000 miles apart. So a visit this week […]

The Joy of Ritual

As we move through the holiday season, ritual seems to be on the top of everyone’s mind. From ornaments that have been in your family for years, to specific foods passed down through generations, to someone’s annual party, ritual abounds this time of year.

We all write at our […]

Return of the Slog

A few things have converged this week and I wanted to address them under the broader heading of “The Slog.” We discussed the idea of “the slog” in a post back in February, which you can find here At the time of the article, I asked the question, “What makes some days a slog and some […]

A Yak On a Cliff

I’m always amazed when my day job in marketing and advertising intersects with my writing life and today was one of those days. I’ve been a fan of the magazine, Redbook, for a long time. They have a sassy sensibility about them – the magazine’s fun and trendy but in an attainable way – and it’s […]
