It is a great pleasure to welcome Tana Stone author of Tribute Brides of the Drexian Warriors series.
Welcome Tana to The Adventures of the Everyday Fangirl and thanks so much for taking the time out your busy schedule to help us get to know more about you and your stories better!
What does the title of this novel, series or set of stories signify?
I was inspired to call the first book in the Tribute Brides of the Drexian Warriors series TAMED by “The Taming of the Shrew.” The protagonist starts out the book a bit spoiled and her alien warrior tames her temper rather creatively.
What prompted you to write in this genre and who or what inspired you to?
I’m already a successful mystery authors, but I love reading Sci-fi romance, so it wasn’t a jump to want to write it. But, like all writers, I wanted to put my own special twist on the alien abduction trope.
What are the most important attributes to remaining sane as a writer and do your characters reflect some of these attributes?
My key to writing success is steadiness (and taking breaks). I also switch things up (alternating writing sci-fi romance and mysteries. I consider myself pretty independent, which I think most of my female protagonists are, as well.
What kind of research did you have to do for the novel, series or set of stories that was different from others?
Since my series is speculative, I watched Star Trek episodes for inspiration. Lots of the ones with holodecks!
What makes you laugh?
Cats in costumes or hats (although I’d never try to put my cats in either)!
What are you a fan of and is this reflected in your writing?
I love the concept of holodecks, so I included lots of that in my fantasy space station. How cool to be able to recreate settings that look and feel completely real, right?
Is there anything else you want to add about the story, series that has not already been mentioned?
If you like hot alien warriors, spunky Earth women, sci-fi action, steamy romance with a happily ever after, and a few laughs, I think you’ll love the Tribute Brides of the Drexian Warriors series. You can find out more about each book in the series through the following links:
