A.D. Popovich was born and raised in Louisiana. At the age of fifteen, she moved to California with her family. Living in California was a huge eye-opener for her. California meant freedom. “Well, back in the 70s it did.” After meeting her husband, life has been one adventure after another. They lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico for a while—absolutely wonderful. Several years later they made a wrong turn and ended up in Florida: too many tornadoes and alligators.
They finally returned to California. After decades of working in the mundane world, A.D. Popovich decided it was time for a change. She focused almost every second of her free-time focusing and visualizing her childhood dream—writing. Her first novel, Only the Dead Don’t Die, was more successful than she had anticipated. She’s busy working on her next book. She strives to write compelling survival stories with a touch of the metaphysical.
When asked what people find surprising about her, A.D. Popovich replied, “Hmm, friends and family were super-surprised when I told them I had published a dystopian novel. They were like . . . ‘Whut?’ They were just getting used to my metaphysical side. Now they really think I’m weird. It seems odd to me as well that my stories venture to the dark side. But my theory is—you can’t fully embrace the light without recognizing the darkness: The whole Yin and Yang thing.”
