Natasha Madison - Romance with Spunk

Natasha Madison - Romance with Spunk
natashamad

When her nose isn't buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she's in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four-inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It's a good thing her characters do what she says because even her Labrador doesn't listen to her... As our Author of the Day, Natasha Madison tells us all about her book, Tempt The Boss.

Please give us a short introduction to what Tempt The Boss is about.

Lauren returns to the workforce but isn't ready for the boss that greets her.

What inspired you to write about someone who meets her boss for the first time during a fender bender?

I thought that it would be a great intro without knowing. It also makes you think be nice to everyone!

Tell us more about Austin. What makes him tick?

I think he is a bit of an OCD kind of person that needs everything running his way.

The book contains a lot of laugh-out-loud moments. Why do you like to add humor to romance novels?

I'm a funny person, I mean I think I am, so it's no surprise that there are always funny moments in all my books.

Lauren is a spitfire. What makes her such a great match for Austin?

She doesn't back down and I think Austin is used to everyone doing what he wants and not asking questions.

Besides writing, what other secret skills do you have?

I can cook just about anything.

What's an aspect of being a writer that you didn't know about going in?

That when you are in the zone of writing everything around you gets lost. You also forget that these characters that you are writing about aren't real.

Which of your characters has been the most challenging to write for?

The most challenging has been Viktor from This Is Wild. As a recovering addict, I did so much research about it, that what started out as a great idea turned into so much more. It's also the book I'm most proud of!

Have changes in your own life affected any of your characters?

I think that you really have to separate yourself or else if you have a bad day you will most likely make your characters die.

In your mind, what happens to the characters after you write their final chapters? Do they continue to "live on" in your imagination?

I usually do two epilogues one now and one in the future so you know and I'm lucky that I write some books from the same series so I get to catch up with some of them.

Do you consider yourself a disciplined writer? Do you have a schedule that you stick to, or is it more in the moment?

I write from Monday to Friday from nine to four every single day. With an hour for lunch which I now work out during that hour.

Talk to us about your writing routine; what’s a typical writing day for you?

I usually get up at 7 ish and then take my daughter to the bus and come home. I usually answer emails until nine and then I start to write until four.

What are you working on right now?

I'm working on the fourth book to the This is Series and I'm getting ready to release the third book in the tempt series!

Where can our readers get a copy of Tempt the Boss or find more of your work?

I am available on all retailers.
