I'm thrilled to share with you an interview with bestselling author Tara Sue Me! Her latest release, Obscured, was a really good read and one that I quite liked. ^.^
A Q&A with Tara Sue Me
1. What inspired you to write Obscured?
It’s actually due to my husband. I’d started writing it years ago, but left it unfinished. It was very different then; instead of romantic suspense, it was women’s fiction. My husband had this crazy idea for a book and I thought, “Hmm, I could do that with the women’s fiction.”
2. What made you decide to use a pseudonym for Obscured (and Altered Allies)?
There were several reason for a different pseudonym. I was self-publishing these and they were so different from the Submissive series. I didn’t want anyone picking it up and thinking it was another Nathaniel and Abby story.
3. How is Obscured different from your bestselling Submissive series?
It’s so different! For one, it’s not BDSM and there’s not a lot of sex in it, comparatively speaking. Plus, it has all these twists and turns. It’s a total mindfuck. My Submissive books, on the other hand, are much more straightforward.
4. If you could swap lives with someone for twenty-four hours, whose life would you choose and why?
Hmm, good question. I can’t think of anyone in particular, but definitely a man. I’d like to pee standing up.
5. If you were asked not to work on your latest manuscript for an entire day, how would spend it instead?
Binge watching Season 1, Part 2 of OUTLANDER. We don’t get STARZ, so I’m really behind. And eating ice cream.
6. Which five books would you take with you on a deserted island?
REDEEMING LOVE by Francine Rivers, I love that book and every time I read it, I get something new out of.
OUTLANDER by Diana Gabaldon, because it’s OUTLANDER.
GONE WITH THE WIND by Margret Mitchell, so I can think up new endings.
WHERE THE SIDEWALK ENDS by Shel Silverstein, for the smiles.
and OH, THE PLACES YOU’LL GO by Dr. Suess.
7. What advice would you give aspiring writers?
Don’t give up. Don’t stop writing. And don't let anyone tell you that you can’t do it.
