Hello. I'm Tara Crescent.
In my spare time, I write of course. I also read, garden, travel, cook, and almost never clean. I just started watching Walking Dead on Netflix (zombie erotica, anyone?), and I’m impatiently awaiting the next episode of Doctor Who. (I would kill for a TARDIS.)
I’ve scribbled bits and pieces all my life, chiefly inspired by what I’m reading, which tends to be mainly science-fiction and fantasy, with a healthy sprinkling of romance and erotica thrown in.
On my bookshelves, I've got Harry Potter on my bookshelves, mixed in with Frank Herbert's Dune, Asimov's Foundation series, Lord of the Rings, and almost everything Guy Gavriel Kay has written.
I’m a huge believer in happily-ever-after, but tempered by real life, where happily-ever-after is possible, but takes work. My favorite kind of romance stories are ones that are somewhat believable; I like strong men and women who know what they want out of life, and are driven to get it.
I'm strongly attracted to BDSM themes, and most of my stories will explore this, but in a real-life kind of way, not in a fantasy I'm-going-to-be-shared-with-homeless-people way. (A fantasy which does absolutely nothing for me.)
From time to time, I blog about what I’m writing at http://taracrescent.blogspot.com
. The blog is also where I post book excerpts; highlight information about upcoming promotions, and so on and so forth. Follow me there to keep up with all the fun!
