Thursday Coffee Talk/ July 22, 2010/ Author, Tinisha Nicole Johnson

Welcome you sleepyheads to Thursday Coffee Talk. Amanda has asked me to host this week's show, due to some trivial thing she calls a deadline...has some morbid undertones if you ask me.

I'm not much of a morning person. I need my beauty rest, but when she tempted me with the pan of lasagne, what choice did I have? It's true I have a lovable reputation  to keep and a shape that screams "I'm too cute for words" both of which need  italian -style casserole dishes to sustain them.

Besides, she let me wear her bunny slippers.

So grab a cuppa joe and lets get this party started. Yawn* Is it naptime yet?

We've been showcasing a few of the talented authors at Lady Leo Publishing who have partnered up with Arrow Publications and their new Apple App Distribution program!

For those of you with backlists and returned rights, you may wish to learn more about this innovative program. You can find out lots more about it if you click very carefully on  this link (tell 'em Garfield sent you;)   http://www.arrowpub.com/

Meantime, we're about to learn more about this gifted author and very pretty lady, Tinisha Nicole Johnson. Here is a wee bit more detail about Tiniaha. ( I have to remember to ask if she likes cats...)

Tinisha Nicole Johnson is an author, poet, and a professional freelance writer. She resides in Denver, Colorado with her two kids. She’s had a love for writing since the age of eleven. Tinisha loves to write in various genres from romance, inspiration, mystery, self-help, and thriller. When she’s not writing, she’s engaged in activities with her children or friends. She also hosts political and sports teleconferences as a profession.

Sounds like a very busy lady. Pending allergy issues, a cat would be a very sensible pet. We're so well suited for those with busy lifestyles--but enough about me...until later;)

Tell us a little bit about your book, Tinisha:

Unexpected is the story of Dahlia Ray, a hard-working woman in the corporate world, who doesn’t necessarily believe in love after experiencing one disappointment after another. After winning a multi-million dollar case at her law firm as a Paralegal, she decides to take a get-a-way with her two best friends Janet and Sasha at a cabin in the mountains of Winter Park, Colorado for the annual Jazz Festival. Dahlia’s looking to get a peace of mind, while her friends are looking to get their freak on.

While there, she meets Jackson Bell, a Denver Bronco. He’s tall, dark and sexy. However, will he be just another name added to her list of disappointments? Is he too good to be true?

After a weekend of lust and fun, the mutual attraction between Dahlia and Jackson are evident, and things get steamy, but will it only last the weekend? The story takes on the notion of love and fame and how they mix.



Tall, dark and sexy, huh? Personally, I'd tell Dahlia to reconsider the option of a short, ginger,(red is the new blonde, you've know-hey, if it works for Rhiannon,shrug*) rotund cat--I do love me a good snuggle now and again...when I feel like it, of course and after a pan of lasagne. Can this Jackson guy cough up a fur ball on demand? Yeah, thats what I'm talkin' about...
So tell me, Tinisha--what is your idea of the perfect hero or heroine?
A hero is someone that readers either like, or/and have built a strong connection with. When I write, I really try to make the readers care about the hero or heroine, or at least relate to them

Sounds like a good plan. I've heard that most people relate very well to small furry animals, especially ones with cute faces...if you like, I happen to know someone... just sayin....


Okay, now for the big question and I understand that this is for  a generous gift  from our guest today--she asks;
Would you have sex with someone you’ve only known for a couple of days. Why or why not?


As a cat, I willl refrain from answering this on the grounds that I am way too lovable.;)

Thanks Tinisha for stopping by Amanda's House of Muse.

Hi Tinisha,
Great, interview. If the chemistry is there, yes, I would have sex, but I would certainly use protection.

Amanda McIntyre said...

Though I have written this a number of times in my fiction work, to consider the idea personally takes on a whole new meaning for me.

It would have to be some seriously powerful chemistry for me, I think. But thats coming from where I am now in experience and age, perhaps.

Waiting...to me is a form of seduction. Anticipation is a phenominal aphrodesiac, imo;)

A Denver Bronco, Tinisha? WOO-HOO! I LOVE the football players - and football, of course!
Sounds like a great story - and BOY, just like Dahlia have I had my share of dissapointments, too.

Oddly enough, the small handfull of men I've slept with I knew for over a year before we did the deed.

As this sounds like a good plan, what's with all the dissapointments? Perhaps I should rethink things.

:)

Thanks for the comments. And I thank Amanda for having me on her site. This is way too wonderful! I enjoyed the online interview.

Great interview LOL I love Garfield how can you not right he's hilarious and says what we so want to most of the time! :)

I personally could never sleep with someone that I had only known a few days. Sex is a scared act and I couldn't just leap into it with someone I hardly knew. I know many who have and they have all had bad times after the fact as a result. I think you have to have more of a connection with the person or should before that happens and that can't happen over just a few days I wouldn't think.

Hope you get a lot of Lasagna Garfield! ;)

I can't jump into bed with someone I've known for only a few days because I need to get to know the person a bit more. I don't think sex should be some casual act you can have anytime

A romantic fantasy where anything is possible.
I loved the story. Great job, Tinisha!
