Author Interview: Tonya Clark
About the author:
I live in Southern California with my hot and amazing firefighter hubby and 2 beautiful daughters. I have been writing since high school, those will be kept locked up tight as to not be embarrassed, and started publishing about 3 years ago. Writing is a passion not a job, I have 3 of those, and it is a way for me to relax and let go of a very vivid imagiation.
What inspires you to write romantic fiction?
I write romance because I love a HEA with a little romance and steam added to it. There is nothing better then finding "The One" and having the perfect romantic story behind it. Nothing in real life is perfect, but when writing it can come close.
Tell us about how you write.
I write in both perspectives, I believe it helps readers connect with the story and characters a little easier. I like to write more to real life situations, but of coarse there always needs to be a little fantasy and I love a HEA.
Do you listen to or talk to to your characters?
I can not say I talk to my characters, but sometimes I forget I am creating someone in my head. I expect them to call or knock at my door sometimes, or see them walking down the street.
What advice would you give other romance writers?
The advice I would give is, don't write for someone else, write what you imagine and feel, it will be amazing.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
The future of book publishing is tricky. I believe there will always be a need for a good story. People like to get lost in their imagination and in a world that maybe a little out there in reality. The tricky part is keeping up with technology and how the book will be read.
Which romance sub-genere(s) fit your stories best?
I write contemporary romance with a little suspense, country, sports
My books are available in the following formats:
