It's time once again for Writers on Wednesday. This week I am chatting with Marie Tuhart, author of Bound and Teased ...
Tell me a bit about yourself …
I was born and raised in San Francisco, California, and moved to the Pacific Northwest in Washington State several years ago. I played at writing when I was a teenager and finished my first novel length book at 19.
Tell us about your most recently published book?
Bound & Teased is a committed menage book. Here’s a blurb:
Eight years ago, a naive Katie Crane ran from Ry and Jed, warned their brand of love would ruin her life. Now she's all grown up and returning home with a better understanding of the BDSM lifestyle. After the betrayal she's faced at her father's hands, she worries she won't be strong enough to submit to the men she gave her heart and virginity to at eighteen.
Jed Malloy and Ry McCade are surprised and thrilled by Katie's return to Felton's Creek. They'd been heartbroken after her departure and had turned to each other, embracing the BDSM lifestyle without her. Katie's homecoming sparks hope and worry. Ry isn’t sure he can keep his dominant side under control, and Jed fears Katie will see him as less of a man by being a switch and Ry’s submissive.
Having Katie back could mean the beginning of everything they've ever wanted or the end to the only family they've ever known.
Tell us about the first time you were published?
I was first published in 2010 by The Wild Rose Press. My first book In Plain Sight was a book I’d written years before for another publisher but never submitted. When I submitted to The Wild Rose Press I really didn’t expect them to buy it. I was thrilled and excited when they offered me a contract. I’ve learned a lot since then.
As writer, what has been your proudest achievement so far?
I’m proud that I produce good, quality books. I want readers to have fun reading my books and while I’m not perfect I want the reader to have the best experience they can.
What books or writing projects are you currently working on, if anything?
I’m currently working on a two books in a series tentatively titled: Doms of the Silver Screen. It’s played in the world of movies I have an actor, a director, a graphic artist and a costume designer.
Which do you prefer? eBooks or Paper Books? Why?
I’ve gone more and more to eBooks. Mainly because I have such a wide selection, and many small publishers do e-Books only. I occasionally do read paper, but not so much anymore unless it’s a research book.
Finally … is there anything you would like to say to your readers in Adelaide, Australia?
I hope to travel to Australia one day. I have a couple of online friends who live there and it would be great to meet all my fans who live in a wonderful country.
