TL Wainwright.jpg

 

    1. Can we start with your name and where you’re from?
      T.L Wainwright (Trace) I live in Leeds, West Yorkshire
    2. Most authors love reading, is this true for you and if so who was/is your inspiration?
      I love reading, I adore being able to escape to some other time and place. Inspirations, too many to list but modern day, Helena Hunting, Debra Anastasia, Emma Hart and JA Huss are just a few that come to mind.
    3. What genre do you write in or do you cross over into many?
      I wright Adult Romance, Humour, Erotica. I may dip my toe into others in the future.
    4. If you could take any character from someone else’s book and make him/her your own creation who would it be and why?
      Neville Longbottom from the Potter books. It would be set when he’s all grown up and he’d be a bit of a bad boy. Well, have you seen him recently? Peks, Abs and everything.
    5. When did you first start writing?
      April 2015 out of the blue.
    6. Do you plan every inch of your books or do you just let the words flow?
      I have an idea but then I fly by the seat of my pants.
    7. Who is your favourite character and why? (your own character)
      Isaac was my first and you know what they say… Your first love is the deepest. He’s also hot as hell with tattoos and a regal piercing.
    8. Was there an event in your life that triggered a particular book, or even a scene in a book? If so what was the book and what was the event?
      Ahh! That would be telling.
    9. Are you working on anything at the moment? If so can you share any tasty morsels? 
      My WIP is very nearly done. It’s a spin off from one of my other books. The title is Tomek – saving angels. Here’s the short version of the blurb….                                    I’m a soldier, but not in the way you may think. I work for a man who people akin to the devil. My orders? Anything from inflicting a hard beating, to torture that will undoubtedly lead to a painful death. Failing is not an option and I learnt years ago to keep my thoughts and emotions to myself.
      Do I choose to live this life? The question is irrelevant, because from being a small boy living in Poland, to where I am now in England, this is all I have ever known.
      Then she changed everything.
      If someone walks into your life when you least expect it, changing your whole perspective, despite the inevitable risk. Would you take the chance, when potentially they could end up being your saviour?
      But then again… who exactly is saving who?
      Piece of advice…  
      Write what you want to write and not what you think they want to read. Be true to yourself. Remember, you’ll never be everyone’s cup of tea.             

      10. What one piece of advice would you give to someone starting out?
      Have faith in yourself and do it. It’s bloody amazing.

      11.What do you do when you’re not writing?

      Day job as an Export Manager or reading.

      12. What is the hardest part of the whole writing, editing, marketing process for you? Everything. I’m still learning new stuff as I go along. It’s like on the job training.

      13.We all have those friends or family members who make sweeping statements about our writing or the process, which is your particular bug bear?
      ‘IS IT LIKE FIFTY SHADES?’ My response, I wouldn’t know because I haven’t read it.

      14. What is your idea of happiness?
      A happy, healthy Family. In book world? Giving up my day job so I can do this full time. Isn’t that everyone’s?

      15. For this one I want you to showcase your creativity by painting me a picture, with words, of your ideal setting to write in.
      Hotel patio/balcony, blue skies, good laptop, glass of rose, beach view, hot men, volleyball…

      16. What makes you laugh/cry?
      Awkward situations. Soppy romance.

      17. You’re stranded on a desert island and you can take three men/women who would they be and why? This can be practical or purely sexual in nature.
      Debra Anastasia because she just cracks me up. KL Shandwick to I can milk her for all her knowledge on writing. Franggy Yanes because he’s a fabulous photographer and I’m so not photogenic. He’s also one sexy dude, eye candy.

      18. What is your most annoying habit?

      Interrupting people. The thing is, I hate it but still bloody do it. My excuse is that if I don’t, I’ll forget what I wanted to say.

      19. Please tell me about your books? For each one please send a pic (kindle cover would be perfect)  see below….

      My first book Naughty But Rice (Free to download) was released in July 2015 with part 2, Rice Back At You! (99p) in August 2015…
      When 26-year-old Amy Reed’s promotion sends her down to London, she gets a lot more than she bargains for. The hot American she meets in the hotel bar, is more than willing to show her exactly what sexploits she’s been missing for the past few years, but will she give into temptation…

      Amy

      Looking up and meeting his eyes, I can see that his pupils are dilated, and I inadvertently bite my lower lip, unable to look away. He moves in even closer, as his hand takes the back of my neck, pulling me to him and his tongue licks gently across my lips.

      “I have wanted to do that since the first time I saw you,” he says softly.

      Isaac

      She’s not the usual tall, leggy, over confident business women that normally catches my attention, but a small, curvy, soft, skittish vision, with the most fantastic rack. Even though covered with the fabric of her blouse, you could see she had amazing tits, almost fighting to escape the cloth, as her chest moved, while trying to catch her breath.

      I could tell she was shy, so I was planning to move carefully but then she fell into my lap. Literally!

      Her touch made my body react instantly and I struggled to control my twitching cock. When I walked her to her room, I just couldn’t keep my hands off her.

      I want her.

      The question is, will Amy be able to refuse him?

      A Hole Lotto Loving  (99p to download) is a cheeky little novella. October, 2015
      Lynnie is a 40 years’ young, single, divorcee who comes into a humongous amount of money.  After a lot of persuasion from her best friend Shelley, she decides to place an ad, interview and hire a younger man for errmm… Fun!
      “I can’t believe it!” I sit in front of my laptop, stunned. “48 replies. This is madness. What the hell are we going to do?”

      “First of all, you need to take some deep breaths or you’re going to hyperventilate,” Shelley chuckles. “We go through them first and weed out the weirdos. Like this one. Has 15 cats and 6 budgies.”

      “I like cats,” I mumble.

      “Yes, but not bloody 15. Just think of the smell, along with the 6 budgies. Bleurrh! No that’s a definite delete. No, no, no. 45 too old, we want younger, delete. Eew! No way he drives a Reliant Robin, who the hell drivers a Reliant Robin in this day and age. I didn’t think there were any left. Hasn’t he heard of a Smart Car?”

      “Oh my God, maybe we should have asked for photos,” I mumble nervously, taking an extremely large gulp of my Rose wine, and even consider just swigging it straight from the bottle.

      “You’re the one who said no photos,” Shelley laughs. “All that crap about ‘It’s personality that counts.’ I call bullshit! You need someone that’s going to get your pulse racing, a hottie that’s easy on the eye.”

      “They can look like Gerard Butler, but if they are as boring as a Tupperware convention, then they ain’t gonna be a turn on.”

      “True. No way! 78 years’ young, who’s he trying to kid. Bless him. D-e-lete. What about this one? Clint HARD, that sound promising. 33, lives in Harrogate, likes fine wine, fine food and only the best in everything. Mmm classy dude. Print.”

      *** On sale soon on run up to release of Tomek. TBA ***

      DEACON. SOLDIER. FIGHTER. JACKass! Went live in 14th Feb 16.

      Here comes the blurb:-
      When Tessa Walker stumbles upon a beat-up lump of muscle in a dark alley, against her better judgement she doesn’t walk away. The obnoxious, foul mouthed, jackass does nothing but piss her off from the get go. It’s not until she cleans up some of the blood and shit from his face while he’s sparked out, that she realises he’s a blast from her past.

      ‘Jack Deacon, cock of the school, every girl’s wet dream and utter arsehole. He was the most arrogant git all the way through high school, so full of himself he was overflowing, but for some reason everybody loved him. I was no exception.’

      ‘He was my secret crush, the one that I compared every other guy to. Nobody ever came anywhere near. Yet here he is, right in front of me, and he doesn’t have a clue.’

      “What’s your story?”
      After leaving the army, Jack Deacon’s life has gone from shit to bone. Running up debts from gambling, owing money to the wrong people. All in an attempt to dampen down the continuous re-run of events in his head, and the feelings of guilt in his gut. When he wakes up battered and bruised on some chick’s sofa, he knows exactly who she is.

      Tessa Walker, the specky geek with the bright sparkling eyes the colour of cognac and the most spectacular tits. Oh how I’d fantasised about those tits, taking one in each hand and burying my face right in the middle of them. Many a night I’d wanked with that vision in my head.’

      ‘I bet she’s wondering what this is all about. It’s none of her f**king business, I ain’t telling her shit.’

      But hell! This is just the beginning…
      Available now only £2.99.

      Dream F*#ks And Hard Drives was released in July 2016

      My latest book started off as a quick office romance novella but while writing it, turned into something, well, a little less conventional. Here’s the blurb…
      My names Imogen Lovell and there are currently five things that are relevant in my life.

      1. Job – Enjoyable.
      2. Family – Parents can be a little embarrassing. The rest of them, pfft!
      3. Friends – Limited, but I have two of the very best, Libby and Henry.
      4. Sleeping issues – Erotic and sexually heated dreams, causing disruption to normal sleep pattern.
      5. Sex Life – In reality… none existent (please see item 4 for further clarification).

      At least there was only five, until Finn Burke came to work at my employers on a short-term contract.

      He’s an arrogant arsehole with the body of a Facebook hot hunk posting. I loathed him from the moment I saw him, with his egotistic, la-dee-da attitude. Looking down his nose and trying his best to humiliate me. I will not be the butt of his jokes.

      I feel a throat punch coming on!

      So, if I dislike him so much, then why has the faceless man in my dreams morphed into him?

      I need to add an additional data entry…

      1. Finn Burke – Kill him or shag him?

      Believe me when I say…This is not your typical office romance!
