      I’m so happy to share the USA Today HEA interview I participated in.  In it, I got to talk about a few of my favorite things… Sexy SEALs, writing, awesome readers, Sexy SEALs, strong heroines and what makes SEALs hot.

      Here’s a peek:

      Q: The women in your stories are resilient, self-directed women who happen to fall in love with strong, protective men. How much of yourself is in these women?

      Tawny: Well, when you put it like that, I want to say my heroines are just like me! But, seriously, there are always elements of me in my heroines — I have to understand their fears, their needs and hopes to write them, and quite often those fears, needs and hopes come from my own life. My heroines face choices in their story, both in believing in their own dreams and making them a reality, and in the choice of whether or not they can handle what it means to live their life with a SEAL. I think it takes a strong woman to accept and even thrive in a relationship with a man who is committed to not only putting his life on the line, but also one who is gone a great deal of the time. And when it comes to the Special Ops there is the added layer of secrecy since these heroes will never share where they are or what they are doing.

      I hope you’ll check out the full interview on USA Today’s Happy Ever After

    It\'s a funny thing about life: if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it.
    We will always tend to fulfill our own expectation of ourselves.
