Author Interview- Tena Stetler


What am I thankful for? There are so many things, so I’ll just list a few. First of all, I’m thankful to have a roof over my head, food on the table, and healthy enough to enjoy life.  After that, I’m thankful for my God given talent to write and entertain people with my stories.  Hopefully, whisking them away to a fantasy world for a few hours so they can forget their troubles or just relax.  Bless the hearts of my wonderful readers.  I’m thankful to be living my dream of being a published author.  A dream made possible by my supportive, extraordinary husband of many moons, and The Wild Rose Press, my publisher. My editor, well, let’s just say … she rocks and I’m so thankful. 
I’m thankful for my family and friends who are extremely encouraging and supportive.  Without whom I would be bald due to pulling my hair out on those days, the garage door is stuck, the icemaker quit, car’s tire is flat,  my characters run amuck, the story plot flows in ten different directions and none of them what I had in mind. Not to mention, the occasions Mother Nature pounded my veggie garden into the ground with hail, not once, or twice, but three times this summer.
Thankful that I don’t have too many days that entail putting out one proverbial fire after another.  There have been days when my I considered having my office declared a national disaster area.   Thankfully I’m are down to only about once a week.  <grin>
I am thankful for the unconditional love of my chow dog, parrot and turtle. No matter how bad I feel or screw up, in their eyes, I’m darn near perfect. And I’m not going to tell them any different!
Thankful to the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces whose dedication keeps our great nation free.  We are one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. You may not agree with me, but that’s what is great about this nation.  You don’t have to.  I’m entitled to my own opinion, as are you. I can write books on any topic I choose, and that would be paranormal romance.
While I have a lot more to be thankful for, those are the biggies.
I wish you all love, laughter and happy Thanksgiving!


 Blurb
Keeping a lid on all the paranormal beings inhabiting Washington D.C. is a daunting job. Bruce, a six hundred year old demon and the Territory Overlord of the Western Hemisphere, keeps his finger on the pulse of DC's power players through the activities at his highly successful Wycked Hair Salon. His movie star good looks and body builder physique keeps his dance card full and the rumor mills running. Within these walls, his anonymity is safe, mostly.

Bruce's world spins out of control when Angelique, a pint size, gorgeous witch, with an attitude breezes through the doors of his salon. She is the younger sister of Tristian, Bruce's long time trusted enforcer, whose professional skills are second to none. Tristian is furious at the relationship between Bruce and Angelique, a dangerous situation. The undeniable attraction between demon and witch promises to tear apart both their professional and personal worlds.
 Excerpt
      Suddenly, he felt the magic aura shift and switched his attention to the front door. She breezed in, hair like spun gold flowing to her waist, with a seductive yet regal body and a sway to her hips that should be illegal even in DC. She wore a snug rose and cream colored sweater, cut low enough he could see the swells of her rounded breasts, tailored black slacks that fit her cute ass like a glove and four-inch spike heels.  She paused in the center of the salon, wet from the sudden spring storm, and lowered the briefcase she’d used as an umbrella. Her sparkling violet eyes glanced up to the mezzanine where Bruce stood watching. Blatantly her gaze wandered over his well-muscled body, undressing him piece by piece, until he felt naked. He shook his head slightly and smoothed his shirt and slacks with his hand, just to make sure he was still wearing them.
On the first floor, Owen, a stocky well-muscled man of slightly over six foot, with thick silver hair that fell to his shoulders, smiled and stepped toward her holding out a large towel. “Mother Nature frown on you?” His dark amber eyes twinkled as he watched water pool at her feet.
“It would seem so.” She grinned and took the towel, dried off then knelt down to wipe up the puddle.
        “Don’t worry about it.” Owen snapped his fingers. Mia came from the back room with a wheeled bucket and a mop. “It’s been one of those mornings.” He reached out, took the towel from her, and handed it to Mia. “Now, what can I do for you?”

BIO:


Tena Stetler is a paranormal romance author with an over-active imagination.  She wrote her first vampire romance at the age of twelve, to the chagrin of her mother and the delight of her friends. Tena finds stories in the strangest places, while camping, kayaking, or hiking in the mountains. So far, she’s only found one dead body (imagined not real) during a camping trip, turned it into an exciting paranormal romantic suspense that’s nearly complete.
For many years Tena worked as a paralegal for a criminal law firm. You won’t believe the tales she can tell!
Colorado is her home; shared with her husband, a brilliant Chow Chow, a spoiled parrot and a forty-year-old box turtle.  She loves the adventure of a road trip. Together with her husband and their companion animals, they have logged thousands of miles in their RV visiting over 3/4 of the United States.  The great northeast is still on the bucket list.
Any winter evening, you can find her curled up in front of a crackling fire with a good book, a mug of hot chocolate and a big bowl of popcorn.

  4. Thanks Angela for having me! Peggy, I couldn't agree more. Growing up in a military town with over six military installations I have seen first hand the sacrifice our service members and their families make. I never take our freedom for granted.

    Happy Hump day to all!
