Heralded as "a gifted writer" by The New York Times, Mr. Adams is the author of a work of fiction,The Street and Other Stories (Brandon Books, 1993), and several works of nonfiction, including the noteworthy A Farther Shore: Ireland's Long Road to Peace(Random House, 2003).

She is currently on Nuclear Watch New Mexico's steering committee and Alliance for the Earth's Guiding Council. She is co-founder of Apsara Global Arts, a company that supports Artists and weavers in Cambodia and Laos. Her photography has been exhibited in both the U.S. and Ireland.
