Hello and welcome!
Today I have an author who I like very much as an author and as a person. She is kind and fun to be around. Aaaaaand… I have quite a few book boyfriends among her books, I had a few join me for a chat, check out the archives.
Please welcome Tarah Scott.
Winner of the 2013 IRC Readers Choice Award for best of the year with “My Highland Love“.
Also won the Golden Rose Best Historical of 2011 with “Lord Keeper”.
Grab a coffee and read on.
Do you have a nickname?
ROFL Thankfully, no! I have two author names (and a real life name). Anymore names, and I might truly become schizophrenic.
You are too funny Tarah!
What is one word best describes you?
What makes you laugh out loud?
Life! Laughing is one of life’s greatest pleasures. I’m a clown at heart. Luckily, life is filled with many laughable moments, so I tend to get my laugh fix almost daily.
What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
That’s tough. I have several scents I love. Freshly baked bread, pure, real vanilla, lilacs, to name a few. I have no special memories associated with the scents. They simply make me feel good.
Favourite place to spend time in.
Cozied up in bed watching a good movie.
Is there a genre that you refuse to read?
Heh heh. No! I read everything.
Writing! What started it?
A friend once told me that I didn’t choose writing. Writing chose me. When the stories finally started keeping me awake at night, I gave in and wrote that first scene. It was rough, very rough, but that, as they say, was all she wrote. Heh heh. I know, bad pun.
If you could choose another career what would it be?
Secret agent. Since I am incapable of choosing another career, I would be forced to take a career I write about.
Audiobooks! Any plans to have any of your books in audio format?
Yes. I have a producer working on that now. I’ll keep everyone updated.
That is awesome news!
Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
The messages vary. I do believe in real love and I believe there are lots of men who aren’t afraid of love. Those types of men tend to show up as my heroes. A specific emotion? I hope my work conveys many different emotions.
Who is your intended audience and why should they read your books?
My intended audience is anyone who likes action packed love stories. From spies to courtesans, I write about men and women who aren’t afraid to live life.
What is next in your writing?
I’m currently working on The Highlander’s Courtesan, the second book in the MacLean Highlander novels. I’m also working on a paranormal Scottish medieval, Death Comes for a Knight. Look for that book this summer.
I am looking forward to reading them.
Thank you so much Tarah for joining me in my chat room. I love your sense of humour.
Thank you all for coming by today. For those of you who have not read any of Tarah Scott’s books, I totally recommend them. I am sure you will find something you might enjoy in the various genres she writes.
To start you on your reading journey, Ms. Scott is giving away an ebook of “Highland Winds”, Volume 1 in The Scrolls of Cridhe which includes her novella, “Lord Grayson’s Bride”, along with 6 other books from fabulous authors.
She can’t allow his love for her to destroy him…
When Nicholas Spencer, Earl of Grayson, returns to claim the woman he loves, Lady Josephine Knightly isn’t willing to forgive him for abandoning her six years ago. But neither can she resist the man he’s become.
Two days after Josephine signs the marriage contract she discovers a nasty secret that will destroy her family. The only way to protect them—to protect the only man she’s ever loved—is to disappear…or die.
Nicholas won’t make the same mistake twice and let Josephine Knightly go. She loves him. He felt it in their one kiss before he left, and in the single kiss she allowed since his return. But she’s doing everything in her power to sabotage the marriage even before it’s begun. Nicholas doesn’t care. If Hell is where he must live to have her, then she must stand by his side in the fire.
Isn’t that an awesome treat? Nicholas is one of my book boyfriends and he came for a chat last November *sigh*
One lucky commenter, chosen by Sexy Mr. Random, will be announced after 3pm, EST, Monday, March 2, 2015. GOOD LUCK!
