Author Spotlight: Thetta James

This week’s author: Thetta James

I’ve only read a couple of Thetta James’ work currently, but I absolutely love her writing style. She’s talented. It’s incredible how well she incorporates steamy with thought-provoking moments in her writing. I’m looking forward to reading other books by her. I know I will love them!

From Thetta James:

Hello everyone! I’m Author Thetta James and before I get started, I want to say thank you to Nicole for the spotlight and the support! What’s unique about me, and I’m sure other authors do this as well, is I don’t have a particular genre that I write. There are tons of story ideas in my head and I write whichever story presents itself. I’ve self-published 6 books and I’m working on book 7 right now.

It is true that an author’s characters talk to them. I couldn’t wrap my head around that before I started my author journey, but it is in fact true! While I love most genres, I love a good romance with dark elements and lots of spice. Whether the trope is BDSM, MC, Friends-to-Lovers, etc., as long as it’s a mixture of spicy and dark, I’m in.

My husband encouraged me to start writing. Before this journey, I was a blogger and my blog, The Erotic Book Review, was very successful. During my blogging days, I started writing short stories filled with lust and love. I’m a very passionate woman and I felt like that was missing in some of the books I read, so I wrote the words I wanted to see. My husband has always been my biggest cheerleader and felt like I had what it takes to write a full-length novel. I’ve been hooked ever since.

When I’m not writing, I love to read, binge watch tv shows, and sing. Music has been a part of my life since I was a little girl and most of the women in my family can sing. Fun fact, my mother was a background singer for Tina Turner a very long time ago. She was too young to go on tour so she was replaced, but what an experience that was for her!

I’ve been married to the love of my life for 30 years and we have 5 adult children. Grandbaby #11 is due in September and it’s a girl. I’m very excited about that. I recently retired from truck driving with my husband for personal reasons. One of those reasons is my health (the wear and tear on my body was brutal) and I also want to give my author journey a chance to flourish. I spent 9 years traveling the country, seeing every state (except Hawaii and Alaska) and I can’t say enough about how beautiful the USA is. My hubby and I are planning to RV across the US when he retires. People are amazed that I drove a big rig since I’m only 5’2, however, let me assure you that it is indeed possible. Another fun fact, I drive the rig better than my SUV!

All in all my goal is to write stories that readers will enjoy, let them escape, and leave them begging for more. I hope you enjoyed learning a little about me and again, thank you Nicole for this spotlight. Your support is greatly appreciated.
