Editorial Reviews


"A fanciful, fictional memoir of the real-life Evangeline Smith Adams, the most famous astrologer of the early 20th century...the story itself is intriguing, the pace is lively, and the pages turn quickly. The author infuses his characters with consistent personality traits, believable motives, and outlooks that are changed by events over decades. Most importantly, he gives Evangeline a fitting central quest: reconciling her confidence in the infallibility of the stars with her own life choices. After this fine historical novel, it's easy to predict new fans for Adams." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Star-crossed lovers enchant in this mystical account of Evangeline: The Seer of Wall St. And whether you believe in astrology or not, the novel itself is a magical read with the inspiring backdrop of early twentieth century New York City. The dialogue between characters makes the book, each character carefully depicted by words alone.Evangeline's initial introduction to famous occultist Aleister Crowley was picture perfect and wonderfully bizarre. For fans of historical fiction, the occult, and magical realism, I highly suggest Evangeline: The Seer of Wall St. This novel is a solid bet - it's in the stars."
-- The Portsmouth Review

"An inherently fascinating and terrificallyentertaining read from beginning to end, "Evangeline: The Seer of WallSt." establishes author Clint Adams as an impressively gifted novelist ofthe first rank. Certain to be an enduringly popular addition to communitylibrary collections."
-- Midwest Book Review

From the Author

It's All Relative
In the summer of '62--after filling my tummy with paella at the Gates of Spain restaurant in Santa Monica--my great-aunt Pearl told me with pride, "Clinton Dean, you're a direct descendant of John and John Quincy Adams." Not knowing how to react to this info, nor to the sprawling family tree placed before me, I asked, "Can I eat my custard now?" after having studied the kiddie menu.

20+ years later, immediately upon meeting my captive scene partner, Jessica (Paul) Stanton in
The Trojan Women at Cal, she asked, "So, what are you all about?" Flashing back to childhood for some reason, I responded, "I'm a direct descendant of John and John Quincy Adams." Jessica next said, "No kidding. Then you must also be related to Evangeline Adams." Busy adjusting my too-short and skimpy toga, I uttered back, "Who's that?"

The following year, atop the John Hancock Observatory in Boston, I looked out to the harbor where the Tea Party had taken place. Instigated by Samuel Adams; kin, troublemaker. I liked that. I liked him. For the first time I took 'being an Adams' seriously.

Decades later, now a writer, I reflected on a few back-burner projects waiting to be set free. There she was, my great-great _____, Evangeline Adams. Someone I believed to be a part of me. 

From 2012-2015, thousands of hours of research, development and refinement went into
EVANGELINE's twelve drafts.

Hiring a genealogist to determine the exact nature of my familial relationship to Evangeline Adams next became crucial. No way could I truthfully refer to Evangeline as my great, great-anything--once, twice or three times removed--if I wasn't certain.

Today I learned conclusively that I'm not related to Evangeline, John or John Quincy Adams. Disappointed? Absolutely. Regretful that I took on this project under false pretenses? Never. In this book, I got to pay tribute to one of America's first female entrepreneurs by relaying a story from a century ago that's equally as relevant today; a total privilege. Evangeline, this is for you.

-- Clint Adams, Spring 2015, Northern Nevada

Currently facilitating REVIVE YOUR PURPOSE workshops for mature individuals eager to accomplish more.

Formerly, as a writer, Clint Adams released his first historical novel--and second for adults-- Evangeline: The Seer of Wall St. After having spent over a decade prior as a teen fiction author, Adams is grateful for the opportunity to have gotten to share many of his stories with young adults, leaving him with a lifetime of happy memories. His first work of adult fiction was the thriller, The Seventh Ritual, A Race for Survival.

Since the publication of his first book in 2002, Just Say Mikey, Adams has conducted dozens of his "Stories About Facing Fear" workshops in an effort to empower teens worldwide to maintain an "I can do anything" attitude. Concurrent to these events, Adams actively marked the release of three multicultural teen novels: Fear Ain't All That and its sequels Don't Be Afraid of Heaven and My Watch Doesn't Tell Time. He has also authored numerous academic publications while working at The Washington Post's Kaplan, Inc. and McGraw-Hill. He has been a member of the Authors Guild for over twenty years.

Adams earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in drama from the University of California, Berkeley, studied creative writing at San Francisco State University and received his master's degree in marketing from San Francisco's Golden Gate University.
