For this week’s Triple Play Q&A author spotlight, I’ve got author Tia Lee with me to talk about her debut novel and a whole lot more!
Welcome to the Triple Play, Tia, and thank you for joining me!
Hi! This is author Tia Lee. I am a self-published author and live in one of the most humid places in the USA: Houston, TX, but I love it here (sans the humidity of course.) My debut novel is Vermilion Tears. It is a Victorian gothic paranormal, that starts with a normal girl, until vampires, werewolves, and witches show up. I absolutely loved writing this book and it will always be my book baby. I am currently writing a novel about a self-absorbed mob wife, who has aspirations of being at the top herself. Not sure when it will be out yet.
Nice to meet you, Tia…and now it’s time for your Triple Play Q&A!
What inspired you to write Vermilion Tears?
I loved reading Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles and it inspired me to read more vampire novels. I read the Twilight series and then Dracula. While I was in the middle of reading Dracula I actually had this really vivid dream which is where the idea of Vermilion Tears came from. It was kind of terrifying from the dream perspective. I hope I captured it in the book.
If you were a character in a book or series of books, who would you be and why?
This is hard because the type of books and characters I love the best have rough lives. I’ll go with Hermione Granger. She is resourceful, smart, and fiercely loyal. Also, magic would be nice to control.
What’s your adult beverage of choice?
My favorite is hands down is Ménage A Trois wine. It’s a blend of three red wines and my new favorite they make is Midnight. It is so smooth and reasonably priced. They also make a chardonnay if you like white!
Thank you for joining me today, Tia! It’s been wonderful getting to know more about you and your work…and your taste in wine! 😉 If you’d like to find out even more about Tia, or would be interested in picking up some of her fantastic books, please click around the links below and go to town!
