Why did you start writing romantic suspense novels?
Tanya: Because I have a naturally devious mind!
What’s the hardest part of writing romantic suspense?
Tanya: I love creating action and suspense scenes so I think the toughest part is making it believable and real enough to really be suspenseful.
When do you find time to write?
Tanya: My husband and I are full RV’ers so we travel quite a bit. I have to write very early in the morning before we get out and about. It’s a schedule I try to maintain even when we are not traveling.
What’s your go-to when you need a pick-me-up to keep writing?
Tanya: Travel. I always come up with new ideas when I see a new place and think about it was settled or an interesting person who lived there. It always gives me inspiration and spurs me one.
Why do you like writing romantic suspense?
Tanya: I love to write action and adventure and challenging situations…how people’s faith pulls them through. Romantic suspense gives me the most opportunities to do that.
What’s the weirdest way someone has died or been killed in your novels?
Tanya: So far one of my villains fell into an open grave and cracked his head on a metal bar around the grave on the way down. He was a really bad guy so I wanted his ending to be perfect. But like I said before, I have a really devious mind. I’m sure other ways will come up!
Where do you get the inspiration for your plots?
Tanya: News stories or history. Life is stranger than fiction. I often say that I could never write some of the things I’ve read and heard because people wouldn’t believe it was true. I have to tame some things down for my books!
Have you ever regretted killing off a character? Why?
Tanya: No. Anyone I’ve killed off in my books needed to go. My villains always hurt or betray innocents and need to be stopped.
What did you want to be as a child (and did that dream come true)?
Tanya: I wanted to be a writer, so I think I’m livin’ the dream!
