Interview with Paula Adler, Author of Make A Wish

02 Feb 2023

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Make A Wish: A Welcome To Beck Creek Novel?

I love writing small town Texas romances. I call this Small town – Southern – Semi-sweet! My books aren’t super spicy, but they aren’t cutesy, either. I like my characters to have a little life behind them, making them a little wiser and just a little jaded. It makes finding love all the sweeter.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Make A Wish: A Welcome To Beck Creek Novel, what would they be?

I’d Like To Be Your Last by Clay Walker – “I don’t care if I’m your first love, but I’d love to be your last.”

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

I don’t tend to read in my genre while I’m writing, but I always go back to it! I love anything with dragons… which I’ll write someday!! I love literary fiction. I love Women’s Fiction (which I write); I love romance. Basically, I read everything except horror!

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

A Bullet at the BBQ – SL CalderThe Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo – Taylor Jenkins Reid Last Dance on The Starlight Pier by Sarah Bird The School Mistress of Emerson Pass – Tess Thompson Lots of craft books.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

Ryder and Kenzie dancing!

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

Coffee!… except that’s probably not quirky!

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

I choose to be happy.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

There’s no time limit on love.
