Tanya Hess


Tanya Hess is a Chartered Professional Accountant with a love of books in any form. When not deep in income taxes she can be found on her laptop crafting her latest story or trying to figure out the complicated world of e-book marketing. So far she's completed three works of romantic fiction, and hopes to hone her skills through the publication of many more. An action/adventure series for young adults is also in progress, thanks to the request and support of her toughest critics, her two teen aged children. Tanya lives with her family on a 200 acre farm in rural New Brunswick with horses, chickens, sheep, dogs, cats, and lizards.

Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
Nora Roberts has to top my list of favourite romance authors. I love her voice and the incredible rate she is able to produce books for print. Her characters and situations are so real, it's very easy get lost in her books. That's one of the things I look for when I start to read a new book: Does the rest of the world disappear while I climb into the alternate world I'm reading about? Or do I find myself saying "So what?" and skipping through to find more interesting areas? Nora has the ability to suck me in from the first word, and I can only hope that someday I'm half as successful.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Feeding the animals and making sure the kids are up and ready for school. I live on a 200 acre hobby farm and the five horses, chickens, sheep, dogs and cats won't let me sleep in if I tried. I love the interaction with them, and the quiet time before the rest of the household is up: just me and the animals, is something I wouldn't miss....that and my solitary first cup of coffee before I start the herculean task of getting the two teenagers up and heading to school .
