Q.: What inspired you to write romance?
A.: Becoming a writer was never something I was particularly interested in or even considered doing. Honestly, I was content being an avid romance reader.

Welcome To My Site!
I grew up in a small mountain community in the beautiful California Sierras. I have eight sisters and one brother. My love of romance novels started early on and I often times found myself lost in the authors version of life and love. It was then that I knew I would one day write romance. Thirty three years, one husband and four grand-babies later I finally sat down to my lap top and started writing.
My fist manuscript still sits in a drawer and one day I might submit it. My next three manuscripts were soon published. My current projects are well under way and I can hardly wait to share them with my readers.
After attending college in the 80’s I began a long career working with medical insurance, and now after what seems like a lifetime, I am able to work on my goals as a romance and horror/fantasy novelist.

Tiana Laveen was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and now resides in the southern midwest with her husband, two children, and feline companion. She enjoys a fulfilling and enriching life that includes writing books, drawing, painting, listening to music, cooking, and spending time with friends.
Tiana Laveen is a uniquely creative and innovative author whose romance fiction is geared towards those who not only want to temporarily escape from the daily routines of life, but also delve into social taboo as it pertains to interracial relationships. Tiana creates a painting with words as she guides her reader into the lives of each and every main character.
Her first book series entitled “Cross Climax” tackles interracial dating, marriage, and sexual relationships head on without any false bravado. “Cross Climax I” and “Cross Climax II” allow the reader to dive headfirst into short stories that are packed with seduction, romance, and heart-pounding punch. The two novels in conjunction lead to a surprising, but fulfilling conclusion.
Her third novel, “The Slave Master’s Son,” transports readers back to a time and place where interracial relationships were not accepted by the dominant society. The novel delivers a scintillating, historical account of one family’s struggles to deal with love, lust, and consequences.
If you are able to handle the heat, then put on your seat belt and get ready for the erotic ride of a lifetime.

About this author edit data
I was born October 10, 19** in good ole Queens, New York. I had a difficult childhood because I developed severe eczema and most of my schoolmates shunned me until high school. Books became my friend.
Early in life, I found myself fascinated by the macabre. I would actually set my alarm if one of my favorite Alfred Hitchcock, Rod Serling or One Step Beyond episodes was coming on late at night. These kept me up til the wee hours of the morning.
Being raised in Amityville was the icing on the cake. I went to see the actual “Amityville Horror” house and swear it literally took my breath away.
My biological mother died when I was 13, the age when puberty reared its ugly head. Needless to say, I was a wife and mother by the time I was 17, divorc…more

Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, I have a long history of reading and writing. Got my first library card at age 3 and have lived in literary lust ever since.
I began writing for publication based on a dare from a high school classmate, and have written and published more than 100 romantic short stories, and seven full-length novels. DREAM KEEPER (Genesis Press/Indigo) is my eighth and most recent novel. I am looking forward to its December, 2009 release, currently hard at work on WAYWARD DREAMS, the third book in the series. WAYWARD DREAMS is slated for a June, 2010 release.
I’ve also taken a turn back to my romantic roots with a short story and novella for Lady Leo Press. Readers can look forward to “The Twentieth Century Fox” — a novel…more
