Tanya Stowe is an author of Christian Fiction with an unexpected edge. She fills her stories with the unusual… mysteries and exotic adventures, even a murder or two. No matter where Tanya takes you… on a trip to foreign lands or a suspenseful journey filled with danger… be prepared for the extraordinary.
Why do you like writing romantic suspense?
Tanya: I love writing action and suspense leads to writing some awesome action scenes. I love stories where I learn something new or have to solve the puzzle so writing suspense with action scenes and “who-done-it” is perfect for me.
What’s the weirdest way someone has died or been killed
in your novels?
Tanya: The weirdest death was in the book I just finished called Killer Harvest. It doesn’t come out until March. The killer is like a terminator and seems impossible to stop so I had to come up with an unusual way to stop him. I’m not giving away any secrets as to how it happens though! LOL!
Where do you get the inspiration for your plots?
Tanya: My husband and I are full-time RV’ers—we live in our RV and travel year-round. Everywhere I go I find inspiration whether it’s a beautiful cliff and peak, a roaring river or a dense swamp-like area on the side of the road. Then my mind just takes off wondering how people settled the land, how would one survive if they ended up floating down the river? What was life like without a GPS? LOL!
What did you want to be as a child (and did that dream
Tanya: I wrote my first book when I was 11 years old so yes, I’ve always wanted to be a writer and yes, my dream came true. But there was a LOT of hard work and sacrifice in between!
How do you ensure your books are accurate?
Tanya: Lots and lots of research, including travel to the area to see, smell and just feel the air. It really makes a difference. Plus my publisher has multiple editors who comb over the story and question everything to make sure I’m accurate. It’s sometimes painful but I’m always thankful in the end.
