T n' T's Confidential: Milly Taiden

Happy Tuesday! Today I have a special visit from Etopia Press author Milly Taiden! Please give her a warm welcome! I've sat Milly down for a bit and had her answer a few questions about her writing and her recent release Fate's Wish.

The man she loves left her, but he’s the only one that can protect her.

Sharmila is a witch with a problem. Her magic is waning. And her lack of sex may have something to do with it. Her mother’s solution? Easy. Sharmila needs to get laid. Easier said than done, though, because Shar is still in love with the only man to make her melt, Zahir Darkwrath. Her missing husband. Her demon.
Zahir knows he’s a danger to Shar, so he’s done his best to stay far away. Darkness flows through his being, and when emotions run wild, destruction rages around him. And sex with Shar is definitely wild. Staying away from the woman he loves is the hardest thing he’s ever done, but hurting her would be far worse. So he’s astounded when Shar’s mother hires his company to watch over her.
Evil is heading Shar’s way, and Zahir is the only one who can stop it. To save her, Zahir will need more than control; he’ll need the power of his own darkness–which might be his undoing.

First let me say thank you Elyzabeth for having me over. I appreciate the chance to speak with you about my books.

   Thank you for visiting,Milly! Why did you decide to become an author?

I didn’t decide to, not really. I have loved writing forever and when my sister and good friends told me to submit them to a publisher I finally gave in. It was excruciating since I had not let anyone read my stuff until then. But it paid off.

   When you started writing, why did you tend toward paranormal erotic romance?

The truth is I write all kinds of stuff. I have two YAs in my files, 
a couple of regular romances, a thriller, fantasy. But most of 
what I write is erotic romance. I write paranormal as 
Milly Taiden and contemporary as April Angel. I love romance
and writing happy endings. And I do love a good dose of heat
with those romances, so it was easy to put the two together. I 
also have an obsession with wolves and other paranormal 
creatures. They are very fun to write.

   Pick three songs that would be part of the soundtrack for your recent release. Why?

Well…this is a tough one. I think for Fate’s Wish I would use 
Titanium by David Ghetta. Love that song. And I think it reminds me of Zahir in a way. All that power and nothing can bring him down, 
but he can destroy the world with it. Another song I would use would be Wide Awake by Katy Perry. I think that’s how Shar feels when the story begins. And finally Dark Side by Kelly Clarkson. That one truly depicts Zahir for me.

   Where does your inspiration come from?
Everywhere. Seriously. I could be doing anything and some strange plot will pop in my head. I can watch my son playing with his toys and think up a story with whatever he’s doing. So inspiration follows me around. It’s deciphering it and turning it into a good story that’s the hard part LOL.

   What are you working on now?

Believe it or not, I just finished writing Deadly Desire. It’s an Erotic Romantic Suspense novel. Can’t wait to see what everyone thinks of that one. I have written others like it, but this is my first that may get published. Next I’m working my Wicked Valentine’s story.

     When do you find the time to write?

Who has time? LOL. You must make time to write. Late at night and weekends. But I constantly take down notes on the train, at lunch time and just keep things going.

A little more about the woman behind the writer…

     Favorite food – Spanish food. I am Latina so I love love some Pernil, Rice and Beans, Tostones, Paella, Seafood, Pasteles…in short ALL FOOD. Lol

      Favorite color – BLUE!!!!
   Favorite time of day – I love the evening. It’s the time I get my most inspiration.
   Favorite film – Aliens. It just rocks.
   If you were a fruit you’d be… A mango or a guava. Yum.
