Okay, some random facts about me…I’m a TV producer and TV Meteorologist by day and an erotic romance author by night. I’ve lived in Alaska for almost 38 years. I’m the youngest of four children and was a wee bit spoiled. I’m an avid knitter with a yarn stash that takes up half of my spare bedroom.
How long have you been writing?
I started writing romances when I was 16. I decided then I would be a romance writer. I became focused enough to actually finish a book in 1992 and sold my first one in 2002.
What is your writing process like?
I usually have three or four stories in my brain at any one time. I plot the whole story out in my head before I write anything down. Then I (sometimes) write a detailed synopsis of the story. When that’s done I start to write. I don’t write in a linear fashion so I will often have the end of the book written before the beginning, which is why it needs to be completely plotted out before I start to write.
They are interesting creatures, part man, part animal. I like being able to have the animal’s tendencies show up in a human. Makes the human a little more difficult to control.
If you could be any type of shifter, which would you choose?
Probably a were-cat. Just because I think the big cats are such sexy creatures.
Do you have any future plans for heroes of the furry variety?
I’m currently working on the 5th book (Shadow’s Embrace) in the Wolf’s Heritage series. It’s got a werewolf hero and a human-turned-werewolf hero. All of the books in this series have 2 heroes and a heroine. Once this one is finished, I’ve got at least one more in the series planned. In between Shadow’s Embrace and the next one I think I’m writing another dragon story.
Can you tell us about your next release(s)?
I think my next release will be Marvin and the Three Bears. It’s the sequel to Fairy Dust. In Fairy Dust, Marlena has created a Happily Ever After Fairy Dust with a hot sex additive. In Marvin and the Three Bears, some of it gets dropped on Goldilocks’ tale and he has to jump into the story to try to save it.
It’s hard to think of right now because I’m working on a huge project at work and I’m on a book deadline so the spare time I have I’ve been writing. My main hobby is knitting. I’m working on a lovely blue top-down sweater that I should finish in the next few weeks.
If you could ask readers any question, what would it be?
I guess I would ask…what brings you back to an author time after time?
Where can readers find you on the internet?
I’m most active on Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/tiellestclare
