Ever since Tara S. Nichols was a little girl, she has had an affinity for romantic adventures. With crushes on the likes of Tarzan and Hans Solo, she grew up looking for the perfect gentleman rogue. Her stories tend to draw on her appreciation for the great outdoors, whether it be a raunchy threesome stranded while camping, an urban soap star meeting her country boy neighbor, or a distracted pack of thieves. She has a thing for rough and tumble cowboys as well as space pirates, such as Hans Solo, and hard bodied heroines such as Lara Croft. She has a playful sense of humor which is reflected in almost everything she does and writes.
When she is not writing about romance, she can be found tending her garden, keeping bees, or reading a spy novel. Tara roams free on the flat prairie land in Manitoba, Canada where she lives with her young son and husband.
Q: What is your writing day like?
A: LOL. Right now I'm at the mercy of a three-year-old's schedule and whims, the supply and demand of a small home business and my part time time position at a local bookstore. I fit my writing around these three schedules, and surprisingly, it works. I try to catch ideas on the fly, jotting them down on scraps of paper, which I put into the computer late at night, or print off sheets of material to be edited on my lunch hour. I take time to blog and chit chat and I have also recently started teaching myself cover art design.
Q: What is your favorite part of the writing process?
A: I love the initial idea or the unraveling of an idea, where a chunk of a novel will come to me and I have to scurry to catch it all. I also love it when an idea comes together, where that one part that was not making sense before suddenly fits and it all comes together. Then again, having ones manuscript accepted is pretty hard to beat too.
Q: What is your favorite sub genre of romance?
A: I really love multiple partner/mnage a (pick your grouping) as well as western and suspense.
Q: What can we expect from you in the future?
A: A wide variety actually. I write in many different genres. I have half completed young adult, sci-fi, paranormal, western, and fantasy stories waiting to be finished.
Q: Who is your ideal man?
A: Well my husband is mighty fine, but Matthew McConaughey is right up there closely followed by Hugh Jackman, especially in character as Wolverine. Mmm mmm.
Q: Do you have any fetishes?
A: Nylons, sex out doors, and I suppose multiple partners. Now, throw them all together and my head might explode.
Q: Name some of your favorite characters.
A: Lara Croft from Tomb Raider, Tank Girl, Marvin the Martian, Tarzan, Han Solo, and Wolverine.
