The Curse of
Tara Nina

An Internal
Interview
Who
is Tara Nina?
Never
heard of her?
Then
let me tell you what I know about this author. She grew up in South Carolina,
moved to Virginia Beach and met a Navy man, while at a beach party. She
couldn’t open her Matilda Bay wine cooler, asked him for help and the next
thing she knew, they were married and living in New Jersey. One night after
they attended a ‘Northern’ wedding (if you’ve never been to one of those,
there’s a whole lotta drinking going on at them), he whispered, slightly
incoherently, “You don’t need that diaphragm” and thus began the road to
parenthood. Which she did twice, and come to think of it, alcohol was involved
both times.
She
has multiple personalities: mother, wife, maid, cook, housekeeper, MRI tech,
and struggling author.  If it were her
choice, she’d write full time, but the bill collectors control her destiny
right now. One day, she prays it will all fall into place and the readers will
love her novels as they do the greats like, Nora Roberts, Heather Graham or
Sherrilyn Kenyon. Either that are she hits the lottery, whichever comes first.
If she hits, she’ll become a full time author, travel the world, buy each of
her kids a house, and share with her friends. Big dreams for a girl born on an
Air Force base in Georgia.
What
makes her sad?
There
are days when she doesn’t get the opportunity to touch her computer. That nasty
day job gets in the way. Twelve+ hour days can make a body tired and shuts down
the imagination. But on those occasions when she gets to put her butt in the
chair and her fingers on the keyboards, her mind is set free and allowed to
wander.
Where
does it wander you ask?
Depends.
She loves writing the Cursed MacKinnon’s series. The men of Clan MacKinnon were
cursed in 1740, turning them into stone statues, frozen in time.  The women of their destinies are setting them
free in today’s world. Think ancient hunks in kilts dealing with modern
technology and strong willed woman. These are written with an ounce of humor
and a heavy dose of sexual sizzle. So far, there are six books in this series
with more to come.
The
imagination is a terrible thing to waste and she tries hard not to under-use
it. When not dreaming of hot, Scottish men in kilts, and writing their tales,
she tends to venture along the trail of any genre that rolls to the forefront
of her mind and off her fingertips. Paranormals, suspense and sci-fi are her
favorites.
In
the anthology novel, Alien, she contributed Escape. It’s the first book in a
new series. Think Ancient Aliens, space travel, and a group of warriors called
the Paoni. She is hopeful readers will enjoy this new outlook on the Ancient
Aliens theory. Did I forget to tell you, she likes to sit outside, watching the
stars and absolutely loves it when there’s a full moon. Best night ever
includes a glass of red wine, while lying back watching the heavens. Or sitting
by the burn barrel with a fire going and a glass of wine in hand. Hmm. Seems
the common denominator here is wine. Red is preferred.
An
author’s life is never dull as long as the muse is flowing. Every now and
again, writer’s block happens and causes a gnawing ache in her stomach. Luckily
for her, its rare, but it does happen. She truly loves hearing from readers.
It’s uplifting and encouraging knowing someone read and enjoyed something she’s
written. So support your favorite author (no matter who it is), encourage them,
leave reviews about their books, because without the reader’s love, those hero
and heroines become sad and die off.
On
a brighter note, Tara Nina is thankful for all the readers, who have ever
bought one of her titles. Without you, there would be no reason to write.
EXCEPT, it keeps her sane. Might have to keep on writing even if it doesn’t
become a published novel just to keep the voices inside her head happy. In her
opinion, there’s a thin line between an author and insanity. An author listens
to the voices inside their heads and shares their stories with the world
through written word. When one leans toward insanity, the voices guide their
actions, be it right, wrong or indifferent. Hmm. Authors Rule!
BTW,
here are a few tidbits of info on Tara Nina. She loves winery and brewery
tours, good food, animals (she has 4 dogs, 6 turtles and a tank full of fish),
reading a good novel, and spending time with her family and friends (which
there never is enough of that). Oh, and she can’t cook but likes to bake.
You
can find her at the following locations:
Drop
by, say hello and take the journey with her.
May
the Creativity Muse be forever with You.
