Since then she’s built a business, become a mother to two beautiful little girls, and fallen in love with the most spectacular man on the planet. (Just her honest opinion.)
Fiona writes sexy historical and contemporary romance where the good girl always finds a way to make her tortured hero come out of his shell, and love her.
She writes more erotic stories under the pen name Tamsin Baker.
Can you share a little about your journey to publication?
Sure. My road was crooked, sideways and hilly, but mostly moving forwards. I fell into my first few contracts with a small ebook publisher that turned out to be terrible and I had a hard time getting money or my rights back for those stories. Luckily, by the time that mess all came out in the wash, I’d joined several writing groups, met critique partners and found good publishers for the new stories I’d written. I write under two pen names and Fiona Miers is for mostly my self-published works although I hope to join a bigger publisher with my stories soon.
Tell us about your latest release.
'Lizzie’s Earl' is the third in my Regency series ‘The Heir and a Spare.’ It’s about a lovely young widow who’s looking for a nice quiet gentleman to marry. Instead she catches the eye of my rakehell, Rupert,who’s got a heart of gold underneath all that swagger.
Can you tell us a little about your current WIP?
I’m working on a contemporary romance set in Hawaii and then New York. My heroine is on a baby mission and my hero is recovering from a bitter divorce. Their goals could not be any further apart!
Are you a plotter or a “pantser”?
Bit of both now. I was always a pantser and to a degree I still am. I get an idea and just start writing, but generally about twenty thousand words in I have to stop and plot out the rest of the story, otherwise I get stuck.
Do you have a favourite character in your books?
That is a super hard one. I love Archie from Lady Charlotte’s Marquess. There’s something special for me about a really tortured hero who doesn’t think he’s enough for the heroine.
Find out more about Fiona :
Mrs Margaret Turner scattered her husband’s ties all over her expensive, plush carpet, a thrill of excitement shooting through her veins. What would he say when he came home to see his beloved, disgustingly expensive tie collection all unravelled and looking like a toddler had fun playing with them.
Would he be devastated? Would he yell and scream and make a scene?
Probably not. She needed to do more.
She picked up one pristine box at a time and took her time, slowly tossing one shoe after another around the room. Each box smelt like a new car, leather polish and there was a tang, that only new, fresh things had.
She surveyed their huge bedroom, her throat clenching tight, as though her husband had his large hand squeezing. Harder, tighter with each breath.
Her unfaithful husband.
