About Tania

Tania Sparks is a romantic at heart who genuinely believes in true love and soul mates. She met her husband while still at school, she was sixteen, he was seventeen. They are high school sweethearts who more than twenty five years later are still very much in love and are happily married with two beautiful daughters. 

Tania does have a full time job, but in her spare minutes enjoys spending time with her family, cooking and reading. She's an avid reader who tends to chomp through a large volume of books, mainly in the romance genre. Her other major 'hobby' is writing steamy rock star erotic romances!

In 2014, after finding herself constantly being inspired by numerous romance novels, she decided to try her hand at writing. After penning her first scene she discovered that she enjoyed it immensely and so resolved to continue with the rest of the story that was swirling in her imagination. That story resulted in her first novel, Heaven Sent which is the first book in her Oblivion on Tour Series. This was soon followed by Bolt From The Blue and Pure Torture. Each book in the series is a stand-alone story which follows a different band member from a hard rock group called Oblivion - and of course the feisty ladies that steal their hearts! The other books in the series are at various stages of completion.

Now-a-days Tania finds it very difficult to control her imagination and swears that her rock stars are constantly chanting their stories in her head. She can't wait to share them with you. 

Book 1 - Heaven Sent - Ash and Eve’s story
Book 2 - Bolt From The Blue - Nikki and Trixie’s story
Book 3 - Pure Torture - Cody and Kitty's story
Books 4 & 5 will each tell Scott and Hansen’s stories.

I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.

Interview with Tania

Here is a transcript of an interview I did at Triple A Book Reviews

Thank You for being with us today. We are so excited to have you on the blog today.
So let’s just jump right in:

1. What was the first thing you say you wrote as an author?

It was at the beginning of 2014. Up until that point I had never wrote anything fictional in my life! I had however read hundreds of romance books. For some reason I had this scene in my head that I decided to get down on paper. That scene was the scene where a sexy rock star (Ash) and his long lost love (Eve) unexpectedly meet again after being separated for seven years. I found that I loved the whole process of writing so much that I was addicted. That one scene quickly morphed into a book, resulting in Heaven Sent. This was quickly followed by book 2, Bolt From The Blue and I’m currently working on book 3. Each book follows a different band member of the hard rock group, Oblivion.

2. Is there another field of work you saw yourself doing?

Yes, anything but writing! Discovering writing was a complete surprise to me and now I wonder what I would ever do without it.

3. What guilty pleasure or quirky ritual do you have to have while you are writing?

I always have to have coffee and dark chocolate to assist in my writing process. (depending on the time of day, sometimes the coffee is replaced by wine).

4. Who is your biggest inspiration?

Anyone who goes out there and gets what they want and who persists and gives 110% to pursue what they love.

5. What is your favorite place and time to write?

My favorite place to write is at my kitchen dining table and most of my writing is done either on the weekends or very very early in the morning. Most mornings I’m up and writing by 4am.

6. Name your favorite books and authors.

My absolute favorites are:
Thoughtless Series – S.C. Stephens
Driven Series – K. Bromberg
Sinners on Tour Series – Olivia Cunning
This Man Series – Jodi Ellen Malpas
Breathless Series – Maya Banks

7. Has anyone made you so mad you wanted to write them into the next book just to off them?

Luckily, no. I’m a pretty laid back person so not many people get me mad. But musicians inspire me all the time and I quite frequently write things I hear them say into my character’s story.

8. Do your Characters ever argue with you and who wins?

Yes they do - and they always win! They even surprise me sometimes.

9. What is the oddest place or time that a book idea has come to you and you just had to stop and write it down?

I get ideas all the time. I have notebooks everywhere – in my handbag, in my car, in the kitchen, next to my bed. My family always know when I get an idea – apparently my eyes glaze over and then I suddenly scramble to find a notebook, a napkin or anything else I can write on! Usually not at the most appropriate times, but hey, when an idea presents itself, what’s a girl to do?

10.  What Genre do you typically write in and why?

I write rock star erotic romances because I love musicians, they’re creative, cheeky and get up to all sorts of mischief!

11.  What are you currently working on and would you care to share a snippet?

I’m currently working on book 3 in my Oblivion on Tour series which is Cody and Kitty’s story. Cody’s the drummer…here’s a cheeky snippet which is from Cody’s viewpoint…(unedited of course!)

We’re all sitting around, drinking our beers. I’m slouched down on one of the armchairs that I’ve claimed as my own. I’m still twirling my drumsticks and tapping away on my legs and the surrounding furniture.

I’m a couple or three beers in when I hear the door to the suite open. I glance across to see Nikki, our rhythm guitarist and his girl Trixie strolling in jovially, Nikki’s arm is draped over her shoulders and she’s securely stuck to his side.

“Hey,” I greet somberly.

Nikki bobs his head in acknowledgement and Trixie waves her hand to say hi.

I expect them to close the door but instead the most stunning girl on the fucking planet glides in behind them. She has smooth jet black hair that flows down her back and it’s so long it reaches her ass. She’s tall, probably almost as tall as me and her body rocks. She’s slim, but has nicely rounded hips and amazing tits. Her emerald green eyes are sparkling boldly as she scans the room confidently. I immediately jump up from my chair, drop my drumsticks to the floor and feel an undeniable rousing in my pants. Hell, maybe my day won’t be so bad after all. I feel better already!

The other guys all stand up too. Fuck off cock-suckers, she’s mine!

I take a step forward as the raven haired beauty suddenly shrieks in an oddly familiar voice, “Oh my god! Hi guys. I’ve missed y’all so much!”

Fuck, fuck, fuck! My muddled brain suddenly makes the connection as I realize that the girl that has my body vibrating like a damned amplifier is Kitty, Nikki’s little sister. Holy Crap!

12.  Do you ever put personal experiences into your work ?

Gosh – I wish!

13.  Where is the one place in the world you would love to go?

I’ve always wanted to visit Italy – it sounds like such a romantic place.

14.  What is your favorite food and beverage?

Chocolate and wine!

15. We all have pet peeves, what is yours?

I hate negative people that criticize others. Everyone’s different and that’s what makes life so interesting, so let people be what they want to be. 

16.  What do you like to do to relax? 

I write!

Thank You for being with Triple A and we can’t wait to do more things with you in the future!
