Tiffany Green

I would like to welcome author Tiffany Green to our site. If you haven't read her title Innocence Lost then you really need to get on the ball! Check out the review we posted for it. And don't forget to pop over to her website
Now I know you didn't come over here to listen to me so here she is...Ms Tiffany Green!!!!!!

What is your favorite thing about being a romance writer?
My favorite thing about being a romance writer is the ability to make up characters and situations in my head. I love to get my characters into as much trouble as possible, then see if I can get them out of it. There is no better job in the world!

When writing your description of your hero/ine what feature do you start with? Eyes, age, hair color, etc?
I usually begin with the most unusual or striking feature. For instance, in my book Innocence Lost, Megan has violet eyes and that is typically the first thing someone notices about her.

Is there anything special you do to get in the mood to write?
For some odd reason, when I listen to Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin, and most classical music, this puts me in the mood to write. I may also read a book that strikes a chord and puts me in the right frame of mind to write.

Are you a plotter or a pantser?
I’m actually a little of both. I create plotlines for my stories, then just let my characters fill in the blanks. When I tried to plot an entire story, I found my characters usually had different plans, so I just gave up and let them have their way. For instance, in my forthcoming third book, Innocence Found, I had no idea a shot was about to be fired upon the hero in the park until it happened. That allowed for an interesting and somewhat inconvenient attempted murder charge to be inserted into the plot.

If I was a first time reader of your books, which one would you recommend I start with and why?
Well, I would recommend a first time reader start with the first book in my series, Innocence Lost. Although each book in the series is a stand alone book, they are in chronological order.

What song would best describe your life?
Love Rollercoaster by The Ohio Players from their 1975 Honey album. No question!

What’s a guilty pleasure you have?
Chocolate and shopping. Okay, that’s more than one, but I couldn’t decide which one to put down.

What sound drives you crazy?
When someone eats with his or her mouth open. Arrgggg! I can’t stand the smacking!

If you came with a warning label, what would it say?
Warning! Anything you say and do can and will be put in my next book!

What’s number one on your list of things you hope to do before you die?
Be on the New York Times bestseller list.
