What do you like to read?
Just about everything! I’m a real bookie with overstuffed bookshelves in every room but two. That said, a constant in my reading choices is romances, and in all sub-genres. Right this minute, I’m leaning more towards contemporaries and also historicals—they were my first love in the romance field. Another genre I’m exploring is mysteries.
Can you tell us some of your favorite books you've read?
Like many people, I enjoyed the Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson. What drew me in was the Lisbeth character. Physically and emotionally, she was far from perfect, and yet didn’t sit back and wait for things to happen. She was the epitome of a woman taking control of her life and going forth the way she wanted, not how anyone else believed it should be done. A totally cool read times three.
Who are some of your favorite authors?
Funny, I read this question, and I immediately thought of Johanna Lindsey, Kathleen E. Woodiwiss, and Stephanie Laurens. After that JD Robb and Linda Fairstein came to mind. Then I nibbled on a few sugary treats and the floodgates opened. In alphabetical order they include but absolutely not limited to Jaid Black, Nikita Black, Delilah Devlin, Morgan Hawke, Selena Illyria, Lora Leigh, Jet Mykles, Stella and Audra Price, Christine Warren, and the wonderful JC Wilder. All of them are on my must read list.
What part of AAD are you most looking forward to?
Besides all of it? The people. Everyone is so happy, relaxed and up for fun, they are what makes AAD feel like an actual vacation. That, mixed with books, and I’m in heaven.
What do you hope to walk away with from AAD?
Last year I sat in the audience of a few panels on subjects I knew nothing about and came out interested in learning more. Beyond the learning aspect, it’s the costumes. Attendees are so very creative, gets my own juices flowing overtime.
Have you ever been to AAD before? If so what was your favorite part?
I have and this one in Philadelphia will be my third. Now there’s a hint of how fabulous the event is, I already am planning on attending next year in New Orleans. I wouldn’t miss an AAD party if humanly possible. There’s much to call a favorite, which makes it hard to narrow it down to one, but if I must then it would be the ambiance. Whether shy or outgoing, alone or in a group, everyone is equal and feels welcome. This makes for a great atmosphere to meet like mind people and share the pleasure found in a good read.
Are you on any panels? If so can you tell us which ones to look for you on?
The lineup is really exciting this year, so many to attend, and yes, I’m on a few. You’ll be able to find me on Myth and Magic, BDSM, the Details of Romance, and then Ménage and More. I told you, the panels are a great mixture, and these are just mine.
Do you have any must haves when you sit down to write?
When I’m ready to write a story, I want all my research done, and filed for easy reference. I also like to have a stack of note paper at the ready for questions that come to mind as I write. Then there’s the glass of water, celery, yogurt covered pretzels, and Red Vines at the ready. No, the latter are not the same as Twizzlers, and there’s no substitute for the real thing.
Can you tell us how a typical writing day for you is?
First up is checking the various inboxes and then I drop by my Hot Thoughts blog, Twitter, Facebook, and ARe Café for some fun. I give myself a couple of hours to get all the entertaining and necessities finished, and then I dive into my WIP. I visit everything again at lunch time and again before I turn it all off. Actually, if I’m really in the zone, all routine goes out the window and I’m lucky if anything but writing gets done.
Can you share with us anything you are currently working on?
Well, what I’m in the final stages of polishing one called “Missing”. She’s on television marketed as the girl next door while sharing ideas of how to reuse items, he’s a retired professional surfer with a naughty reputation, and they are about to find their way back to each other. Someone very famous and sadly dead makes an unexpected cameo appearance in the contemporary erotic romance with bondage.
Can you share with us your first book ever published?
Ahhh, great memories are attached to “Come, Sweet Creature”. It was the first book I ever wrote, submitted, signed a contract for and was published. The erotic contemporary tale is a twisted take on the old children’s poem, The Spider and the Fly by Mary Howitt. The experience, both writing and publishing, was so good, I kept going.
Can your share with us your most recent release, or a soon to be release?
Last week “Tied Up For Love”, the fifth book in my Mythological Messes Redux series, was released. I’m a huge fan of Greek Mythology, dedicated many years with my nose buried in books discussing the myths and art. What I came away with was how some characters weren’t treated fairly and I give them another chance for a better ending to their myth. You can read an excerpt here, meanwhile, here's a blurb to tempt your taste buds:
Filla is a nymph used to the raucous ways of a Dionysian festival and allows a handsome newcomer, Marsyas, to strip her down for a passionate interlude while tied to a tree. After time spent alone, together, she knows little about him beyond the physical. However, her feelings for him are growing until he brings her back for the next festival, and suddenly she's not sure of anything.
Love is found in the most unlikely places, but will it last?
Where can readers find Tilly Greene?
