Tamar Steele’s star is on the rise. Her relationship with boyfriend Jason Bray is blossoming, as is her bond with her spirit guide, the ghost of Jason’s brother Matt, who has been training her in mediumship. And, newly installed as the medium for her crew of paranormal investigators, she is already receiving press attention, which brings her to the notice of Scare Seekers – a paranormal entertainment show keen to film an episode with Tamar’s team.
But when teammate Hana is violently possessed, filming is thrown into disarray. The dark spirit seems to disappear at first, but when a frenzied Hana attacks Tamar on the drive home, Tamar realises that her mediumistic abilities may not be strong enough to fight the demon.
Until one day Tamar discovers her powers are increased by having sex on haunted ground, and finds that maybe she and Jason can save Hana, their team’s reputation, and themselves…

God, he was good at this. She could already feel relaxation flowing through her body, followed by tingles of excitement as his tongue went to work, tormenting every sensitive spot. Her pleasure mounted, spiralling in her gut as she pushed her hips forward, aching for more movement, harder, faster, but Jason was still goingslowly and her breath raced in anticipation of the climax to come.
Tamar moaned, lacing her fingers into Jason’s hair as he pressed soft kisses to her pussy, alternating with tender licks until she could barely stand it. Jason slid his fingers inside her, grazing her sweet spot over and over again—
Jason’s lips tightened around her clit, sucking, and Tamar threw back her head and screamed as the pleasure hit her.
Through the waves of ecstasy, she heard a loud pop from above her, followed by a sprinkling sensation on her skin.
“What the fuck?” she heard Jason say, and Tamar opened her eyes. Her chest and stomach were covered with shards of glass. Jason was sitting back on his ankles, staring up in irritated confusion as he brushed fragments out of his hair.
At least, it looked like he was. The room was in almost complete darkness, broken only by the bedside lamp and the street light outside the window.
“Did the light bulb blow?”
“I think it shattered.”
Together they got off the bed to sweep up the pieces of broken bulb, Tamar shaking her head in bemusement.
Now that had never happened before.
What did that mean?
How long did it take to get your first book published?
I was quite lucky with “The Hand He Dealt”. It took me three years to write it, including considerable edits, but it was accepted by the seventh publisher to receive it.
Who is your publisher? Or do you self-publish?
My publisher for “Tamar Rising” is Totally Bound. I’ve also been published by House of Erotica and Naughty Nights Press, but Totally Bound are my main publisher.
What can we expect from you in the future? ie More books of the same genre? Books of a different genre?
Definitely more erotic romance – I love writing it and love the freedom it allows for settings and storylines. I’d like to try literary fiction at some point as well.
Do you have a certain routine you have for writing? ie You listen to music, sit in a certain chair?
I have to be dressed. I know many writers love being able to work in their pyjamas, but if I don’t get dressed first, I can’t get my writing head on.
Do you read all the reviews of your book/books?
I probably shouldn’t, but I do – fortunately I haven’t had too many terrible ones!
Do you choose a title first, or write the book then choose the title?
I prefer to have a title in place first, but a few times I’ve kept a working title and decided on the proper title afterwards. I did that with “The Hand He Dealt” and also with a novella due later this year, “In the Halls of the Mountain Troll”.
Are character names and place names decided after their creation? Or do you pick a character/place name and then invent them?
I’ve done both. I’ll often have character sketches and random names noted down and will pick up suitable ones when I’m planning a new story.
Do you decide on character traits (ie shy, quiet, tomboy girl) before writing the whole book or as you go along?
I prefer to have at least basic character traits down before I get started, but I may add ones as I go.
Which format of book do you prefer, eBook, hardback, or paperback?
I used to think I preferred paperbacks, but now I couldn’t live without my Kindle. I love being able to download a sample before buying.
What is your favorite book and Why? Have you read it more than once?
My favourite book changes from year to year, but right now it’s “The Mysterious Death of Miss Austen”, which I have indeed read more than once. The characterization and emotion is beautifully written.
Do you think books transfer to movies well? Which is you favorite/worst book to movie transfer?
They can – it depends on the book. Michael Crichton films were particularly irritating to me as they tried to cram in too much information and never managed to capture the book properly. On the other hand, I loved the movie adaptation of “I Capture the Castle” – I thought that one did a good job.
Your favorite food is?
Thai sticky rice.
Your favorite singer/group is?
Queen, without question.
Your favorite color is?
Your favorite Author is?
At the moment, Agatha Christie, but that can change. I’m also a great fan of Anne O’Brien and Lauren Oliver.
