  Thianna Durston Author Interview³
1) Tell us 3 fun facts about your writing history

6) Where are your 3 favourite places to write?

 I have a desk I write at – same scenery every day which is okay because when I write, that’s not what I see. But if I had my druthers, I’d write on the back porch of a beach house on a beautiful spring day. Or in a cabin in the woods while a light rain is falling outside, each plink, plink, plink of the rain on the roof matching the tap, tap, tap of my fingers on the keys.

7) Name 3 items on your writing wish list

Have my books become movies. Have my books become NY Times bestsellers for weeks and weeks if not months. Have my pseudonyms become as well-known as James Patterson’s.

8) What are your top 3 tips for aspiring writers?

Write what you enjoy writing. Ignore the naysayers. Push to improve daily.

9) Tell us 3 of your writing plans for the year ahead

Finish writing a 4-book series that’s more intense than I’ve ever attempted before. 1st book’s 102k draft is done. The second is in the planning stages.

10) Tell us about your latest release

 Don’t Mess With His Pack is my newest release, and the first book in the Wylde KingDom Paranormal BDSM Romance series. Last summer I was putting together some dummie book covers and I came up with a concept that captured me. That concept became Wylde KingDom. Do you remember the Wild Kingdom television show that used to air in the 70s? Only this Wylde KingDom puts wild animals in their human forms in a much closer environment. It’s a BDSM club for the feline and wolf shifter set.

The felines have their own BDSM club. The wolves need a place to play. Can shifters of different species play together?

Hiding in plain sight, shifters have been around for as long as humans have, but they’ve learned to blend in and not be noticed. They need a way to get out their wild side. Blaise Wylde started the kink club Wylde KingDom four years ago to allow his pride a space to let out their animal a little. It’s amazing how freeing BDSM can be. Their natural predatory aura scares most humans away and they haven’t had any kind of a challenge. But the Okanogan Pack lost their wild lands and now need a place to howl. Can felines and wolves play together?

What kinds of creatures do you enjoy in your paranormal romance?

Wylde KingDom #1

Heat Rating: High
Age range:
18+ only
Alpha Hunter Maison’s primary focus is to keep his wolf pack healthy and happy. But with humans encroaching, they need a way to shift without getting noticed. He knows the local feline pride has found a way to temper their inner animal and asks for their help. Finding a desire to submit to the gorgeous lion shifter is unsettling. Knowing he is his mate turns his world upside down.

Blaise Wylde has worked tirelessly for his pride his entire life. As owner and creator of Wylde KingDom, a BDSM club just for feline shifters, he knows the power that BDSM can wield for their inner animal. When Hunter asks him to help the Pack learn BDSM, he agrees, especially when his inner lion is instantly interested and Hunter turns out to be submissive to him.

Someone in the Pack is unhappy about their alpha being involved with ‘a cat’ and anger quickly escalates to attacks. As Blaise fights to protect his mate, Hunter must do the same, because while he’s trying to find his attacker, someone’s after Blaise and he may already be too late to stop him.

About the Author
Thianna Durston is a writer by day and supernova by night. Or at least that’s what the faeries tell her. And who is she to deny those pesky *cough* lovely little creatures?

She lives in the Pacific Northwest, though her heart belongs elsewhere. In the meantime, until she can return to the place she calls home, she happily lives in a city that still thinks it’s a small town. Thankfully, it has given her muse lots of amusing places to start a story.
