A Conversation with Author, Adrienne Mathues
This next interview is with Adrienne Mathues. I met Adrienne several years ago when she moved to Greenville and joined our local writing chapter. She's served on the Board of Directors for South Carolina Writers' Association (SCWA) and provides insightful critiques in our group. I love the novel she's currently writing.
Adrienne MathuesAdrienne Mathues can’t remember a time when she wasn’t surrounded by books or making up stories. She has worked as a librarian in public, academic, and corporate settings before joining a small medical device company in the upstate of South Carolina.
Adrienne placed second in the Carrie McCray NonFiction category in 2016. Her short stories and essays have appeared in The Petigru Review in 2016 and 2018.
As a member of SCWA, she's been an active participant in the Aiken and Greenville chapters. She served on the SCWA Board of Directors from 2017-2019. In 2016, she became an Associate Editor for The Petigru Review, SCWA's literary journal, and served as the Editor for 2017 and 2018.
What are you working on?
How does your book differ from others in its genre?
Why do you write what you do?
As a reader of mysteries, I often grow irritated with main characters who plunge into an investigation without a thought to danger or consequences. I wanted to reverse these genre-norms and see what the results would be.
