2018 has started really well here at Glimpses Of My Books!
Last month I had one of my all time favorite Young Adult writer gracing us with her presence (Morgan Rhodes), this month I have the author that has in a very short period of time became my ALL TIME favorite romance writer (seriously... I have read about 10 of her books and just bought another 4 this week)! To think I didn't know her this time last year... sacrilege!
If you like sexy romance stories with depth and great characters give her books a go!
Check out this post for the review on her latest book, Ryan's Bed
|Some of Tijan's books that I have come to Love|
I am so very excited to do this Q&A with you!
Ever since I found your books (thanks to a bookstagram friend) I have been hooked. And your last book, Ryan’s Bed, was pure perfection!
When did you start writing? Was it a hobby at first or did you always wanted to be a writer?
This will make me sound crazy, but it really was because I was going to go nuts if I didn’t. I never considered myself a writer, but I had these characters and worlds and storylines in my head. They just kept coming, more and more. So, one day I was at my family’s cabin and I couldn’t take it anymore. I turned my dad’s old computer on, not even knowing if it would work, and then I started typing. As soon as I began, it clicked with me. I knew that I had to be a writer. I was as surprised as everyone else!
When you are not writing what genre do you enjoy reading?
I enjoy young adult, paranormal romance, and lately I’ve started getting into psychological thrillers/suspense books. Very fun!
Of all the books you have written, do you have a favorite? Which one?
No favorite! I tend to love the one I’m writing, but I think that’s more because I have to enjoy it to write it, you know?
Your books are all very different from each other, mafia romance, high school romance, supernatural… where do you get your ideas/inspirations from?
Who knows. Lol! Could be just an idea, a feeling, a movie, a song. I wrote Cole because I had an idea driving through an intersection one day.
Your newest release, Ryan’s Bed, made me cry my heart out. It is a tad heavier than the other books from you that I have read. How along did take you to write it? How hard was it? And what was the inspiration for it?
I started writing it a year ago, then had to push pause for a bit. I started it again recently and it probably took me three months to finish! I don’t really know where the inspiration came, to be honest.
What other books do you have coming out this year that we should keep an eye on? I am ‘no-so-secretly’ dying for Carter 3, is it happening?
I’m not sure about Carter 3. The characters are just not talking to me. I have actually quite a few more young adult books chirping though. I’m hoping to get Heather Jax’s book out, and then we’ll see what projects I can finally share! I do have Bad Boy Brody coming May 7th too!
And for the fun of it… if you were to give Ryan’s Bed a sound track, what 2-3 songs would be on it?
Barbies by Pink, Broken People by Rag n Bone Man, Punching in a Dream- stripped by The Naked and Famous, Oh Brother by Cyrus Reynolds.
Thank you so so so much for being with me and my readers today! I am very much looking forward to reading your other books!
