Taige Crenshaw is my first blog guest for 2011 and a great way to kick off the year. Taige has a chat group and free reads (scroll to the end of the post for links) and have you heard the things reviewers say about her books? "a wild roller coaster ride of intrigue, danger and love" (Julianne, Two Lips Reviews, having read Veils Rising).
Do you ever envy any of your characters?
Yes and No.
Yes - They have such interesting lives and things they do. Lots of my characters are paranormal and can do such fantastic things. Those that are human also have things that make them what they are.
No – Because I love my life and am happy with it. It is fun being on the creating end of the characters and sometimes they let me control things. Only sometimes because they come to life as I write and take on a personality that might clash with my vision of them. I let them go to it and it works well.
What is the predominant colour in your wardrobe? (Ha! sneaky question) and what does it reveal about your character?
Umm… let me go check (walking to closet). Wow I got a lot of clothing with blue in them. Various shades of blue. I was born on an island surrounded by water and maybe having all that blue is the reason that I have so much blue. Actually I have no clue.
What food do you most regret having eaten?
None. I usually am very careful of what I eat. Picky.
How do you tune out distractions when you write?
My family and friends know when I am writing to not disturb me. I tend to growl when I get calls and hang up after telling them I am writing. They understand this and have learned to live with me. LOL.
How do you celebrate submitting an MS to a publisher?
I usually do my happy dance which is lots of butt shaking and whooping. So not pretty.
Thanks for having me Jenny and making my visit fun.

Blurb: A man will come to you in the darkest moon. The trees will shade and protect your union of the soul. Before the final step to merge your body is taken, a choice must be made.
Peyton Blackstone, a natural born witch, knew from the prophecy that accompanied her birth that a man would come to her. Yet, when the man who is set to be her’s arrives, Peyton isn’t ready for him or the ramifications his coming will cause. This man who deals with reality has a few secrets of his own--secrets that could very well destroy them both.
Wesley McCarty believes the woman he meets under the moonlight is not real. Suffering from unexplained blackouts, he believes he is losing his mind. When he sees her again, he realizes not only is his fantasy woman real, but she is within his reach. He must have her, no matter the cost. Nothing will stop him. Not his blackouts, or any legacies or prophecies. He will have this woman who sets his blood on fire and completes his soul.
Legacies, destiny, and prophecy can not withstand this power of attraction.
