*Giveaway!* Easy Entry! U.S. only~Ends 10/22/17
 Today’s featured author is the lovely Pamela Aares! Learn some fun facts about Pamela in this short Q&A. Leave a comment or ask a question on the blog for a chance to win a signed copy of UNTIL LOVE FINDS YOU!

What genres do you write?

I write emotionally fulfilling, , adventurous and sensual contemporary romance. I also have one regency mystery about an archangel that falls in love with Jane Austen — couldn’t resist having Jane find love in her life! (Jane Austen and the Archangel)

Coffee or tea lover?

Ah, both. Green tea chai and deep dark roast coffee. Sometimes both at the same time, two mugs going at once.

Name one thing on your bucket list.

To dive the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. I love ocean life, big and small. My first book in the Tavonesi Series features a marine mammal veterinarian who meets her hero on a whale rescue.

Do you have pets? Pamela with caTS DEC 03(1)

Kitties! One very vocal Russian Blue and a shy Tabby. Both were feral rescues and it’s been so wonderful to see them leave their traumas behind and respond to love.

When I wake up every morning I…have a big mug of green tea and, on a good day, drink it in our garden and then sit down to write the stories of the characters chattering in my head.

Weirdest​ or unique thing you own.

My husband’s Major League Baseball All-Star photos. Oh, and fossils. And rocks. I’m fascinated by rocks!

Do you have ​any hobbies or particular skills?P1080886

I had a several decades career as a filmmaker- director, writer and producer. The pace and language of films is at the heart of all of my books. I also love to dance. Dance is a great counter-pose to all the sitting one has to do to get words on a page and bring a story to life!

What do you hope readers will experience or gain when reading your stories?

I write the stories that I love to read— stories that carry readers into the hearts and minds and worlds of the hero and heroine. At the heart of all my stories are sharp-witted heroines and irresistibly sexy heroes, dangerous men and adventurous women who discover that love is the greatest journey of all.

Pamela Aares’ USA Today bestselling Tavonesi Series continues with another suspenseful, page-turning and heart-warming novel about the healing power of love.
In UNTIL LOVE FINDS YOU, reclusive tech billionaire Evan Forbes finds himself lost and lonely in the secretive world he’s cloaked around himself. He may have changed the way the world communicates with his innovative, high-tech businesses, but the language of the heart has brought nothing but pain.
When Evan meets the vivacious heiress Coco Tavonesi on a garden tour, she fires a spark of desire he can’t resist. Pretending to be an ordinary computer geek, he conceals his true identity and accepts the thirty-dollar an hour job she offers, tracking down a hacker who’s stolen her prized nature photographs. After years of hiding his famous name and his own incredible wealth behind a disguise, has he met the woman worth revealing himself to? Can he risk his heart?
Coco doesn’t count on falling for the sexy techie, but when she playfully snaps a photo of Evan, his resulting anger triggers fears from her past. What does he have to hide? Is Evan the quirky, sweet geek he seems, or yet another fortune hunter using this chance to get close to her?
When Evan discovers that Coco is being hacked by a high-level genius, he’s determined to bring the criminal down. But the hacker accesses Coco’s photos of Evan and threatens blackmail and violence, and suddenly the secrets Coco and Evan have kept from one another endanger not only the love blooming between them, but their very lives.

    1. Hi Latifa- I feel like rocks hold so much hidden life, they’ve experienced so much over their years. If only we could get them to talk! Thanks for visiting UNTIL LOVE FINDS YOU!

    1. *smiling* Only when I have to be. But I do have a minor degree in astrophysics and my brother’s a senior engineer at NASA and helped put the Hubble Telescope into orbit . I work with my husband on the history and development of the universe and our favorite luncheons are when we have visiting quantum physicists who work on things like the Higgs field and the mysteries of the quantum world– so yes, I guess at some level I really have a deep geeky side! Thanks for dipping into the Tavonesi Series. I hope you enjoy Evan the hero of UNTIL LOVE FINDS YOU- he’s the ultimate geek and yet an Alph male with a huge heart! Best, Pamela Aares

    1. I’ve always loved stories, I think they are the way we as humans connect and learn about life. I had a long career as a documentary filmmaker for PBS and a seven year radio show on NPR. Writing for film and radio honed my way of telling stories. Love is the great connector, the draw of allurement pulls us forward into life. Thanks for touching in Debra. I hope you fall in love with the Tavonesis! Best, Pamela

    1. Ah… I love to dance! Currently I dance at a local studio that features the 5 Rhythms practice. 5 Rhythms (Gabrielle Roth’s creative practice) is a great counterpoise to my writing life. The instructors play music from all genres and I love that. I can move, letting my body say how it wants to move. Do you have a favorite genre? And thanks for touching in for the UNTIL LOVE FINDS YOU book launch, Mary! Best, Pamela

    1. Wow. Tough question! I loved working on a short film overseen by Milos Forman who made One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. I learned so much. We shot in the New Mexico desert with kids and Native Americans and horses– everything people say not to do if you want an easy film shoot! I also love working with Susan Sarandon who narrated Your Water your Life for me. She’s such an amazing actress. And such a professional. But The Powers of the Universe is also close to my heart as it encourages people to see themselves as part of the unfolding mysteries of the universe. Thanks for checking in! I hope you love UNTIL LOVE FINDS YOU! Evan Forbes, the hero and Coco Tavonesi are among my favorite love stories that I’ve written. Best, Pamela Aares

    1. Thanks Lisoo! What means the most to me as a writer is hearing from readers and hearing that the stories touch them, that they like to curl up with a cup of something warm or a glass of something chilled and transport themselves into the world of the Tavonesis. Thanks for touching in! Best, Pamela

  1. You may all have heard about the fires we are having here in Sonoma. Thoughts and prayers to the evacuees and to the beyond brave firefighters working night and day. I took a shelf full of my favorite authors’ books to two of the evacuee shelters today. People were so happy to have stories to dip into and have a moment away from all the stress.

    1. Ah… there’s a story behind that story. And I felt that Jane deserved to know true love before she died. Thanks for popping in to say hi!

  2. Thank you all for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. Re: Fire update– We had rain a couple days ago and the fires are nearly out. People are being allowed (some) to return to their homes.Over 5,000 homes and businesses were burned, though.

    I hope you have a chance to read Until Love Finds You. There’s been a lot of discussion on Twitter today about the importance of insects to our lives… and in my book the hero and heroine discover (while falling in love, of course!) that one out of every three bites we eat is directly due to a bee and pollination.

    Thanks again for being part of the release of UNTIL LOVE FINDS YOU! And have a great week ahead. Oh and if you head to my website, you can get the first two books in the Tavonesi Series as a gift. Great way to dive in!
    Best, Pamela Aares
