Author Q&A: Tiana Nicole author of Deceitful Temptations

Tiana Nicole, author of the book Deceitful Temptations, stopped by to for a Q&A.



Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I was born in Chicago, Illinois where I was raised by my great grandmother the late Lillian E. Hudson. I attended the College of Technology where I earned my degree in Computer System Technology.After discovering that I had the talents of a jack of all trades I went on to earn a Bachelors degree in Psychology, and also a Masters degree in Business Management. I quickly discovered that writing was something that I could do, and I could do it well. I managed my craft by attending creative writing classes, to avidly consuming the works of her favorite authors. With my creative writing and skills, I began to shape and mold a writing career of my own. I intend to create fiction for the imagination for many years to come because I’ve developed a talent that is built to last.


What do you do when you're not writing?

When I’m not writing I’m taking on the duties of a full time mother and a wife. In addition to my home life duties I also make time to ensure that I stay current with my genre by reading other novels.


When did your first start writing?

I’ve always been inspired to write since I was around or about the age of 13. I would write short stories that were intended to be full novels, however somehow I would tell the entire store the first five pages. I was discouraged by that particular short coming, and because of that I stopped writing as much. I officially started to develop a writing career in 2010. At the time I was employed as a Call Center Response Coordinator, and at the time when I was least expecting it to happen I started writing full time.


Is there any particular author or book that influenced you in any way either growing up or as an adult?

Absolutely there is. The list is extremely long and almost impossible to narrow down. The very first novel that I read inspired me so much that I re-read the book five times. I loved the story just that much. That novel was titled Disappearing Acts by Terry McMillian. After reading that title I went on to read each and every word that she’d ever written, and because of her style of literature I was influenced to put my best foot forward.


What inspired you to write this particular book?

I felt like I needed to shed light on the fact that regardless of who we are in life, and what we’ve set out to accomplish that we all have our flaws and our faults, and that no one person has perfected the craft of life.


What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?

My favorite part to write was the ending due to my loving the idea of Charmaine coming into her own identity and finally saying enough is enough, and I can no longer mask my pain in exchange for the price of fame and notoriety.


What is best writing advice you can give?

I would definitely tell an inspiring writer to never give up on their dreams. There is absolutely no rush in becoming published. I understand that we all want to have the privilege to say that we are published Authors, however at what price do we pay if it’s not coming naturally. Always trust your gut. If a deal doesn’t feel right then more than likely it may not be.


Is there anything else you'd like your readers to know about the book?

I’d first like for my readers to know that I thank them for their support and I’m forever indebted to them all because without them there would be no me. I also want to inform my readers that the second part of the Deceitful Series has in fact gone into production, and they’ll be shocked with its outcome.



About the book:

Pastor Maurice,

Smart, handsome, and a man of the cloth his appearance was delectable enough to tempt even the holliest of saints. He worked hard to lead his city into the next millennium by running to be the next Mayor. With his wife Charmaine right by his side he makes moves to put everyone in the city on notice.

In public they have a love that is picture perfect. Her pristine and well educated background has many in envy, that they were too perfect. His opponent Jessie Dixon out on his dirt digging mission found this not so perfect couple in fact were as deceitful as they come.

Just how far will Pastor Maurice and his wife Charmaine go to cover up the lies that they have told to the congregation, the city, and each other?
