Hello Tamara and welcome back Alistair. What is it like to write together and where has your writing journey taken you?



1. What made you want to write a book?


It wasn’t a matter of thinking, “I’d like to write a book,” for either of us. We were born knowing that this was what we wanted to do, and even before we were putting pen to paper, we were telling stories, creating characters, and inventing new, exciting worlds. For us, writing is in the genes.


2. Tell us about you and where you live.


We both live in the western U.S. and love our cats. On weekends you might find one or both of us taking long drives, strolling through museums, or checking out mountains, oceans, deserts, or historical monuments for places that just might make good locales to set our next book. More often, you’ll find us cozied up with our cats watching good horror movies.


3. What have you written and what are you working on now?


Collaboratively, we have completed six novels: The Cliffhouse Haunting, Mother, Darling Girls, and three Ravencrest Saga novels: The Ghosts of Ravencrest, The Witches of Ravencrest, and our newest, Exorcism.


Separately, Alistair has written two Vampires of Crimson Cove novels: The Crimson Corset and The Silver Dagger. He’s also written Sleep Savannah Sleep, The Angel Alejandro, and The Book of Strange Persuasions.


Tamara’s newest novel is Brimstone. She has also written other bestsellers including Haunted, Moonfall, Eternity, Thunder Road, and The Sorority.


Alistair’s next solo release will be the third Vampires of Crimson Cove novel, due out later this year. Tamara’s next paranormal thriller will also appear in 2020. Their next collaborative novels will be a thriller, Spite House, due out later this year, and the fourth Ravencrest Saga novel. Many more books are planned.

4. How do you market your books and do your promotion methods work?


We’re much better at writing books than marketing them, so we rely on our publicist to do marketing and promotion. Berlin Malcom sees to it that our websites are up-to-date and that we have a presence on social networks. Most importantly, she presents us with interviews and makes sure we pull our heads out of our books to talk about them now and then.


5. Where can readers find your book for sale?


The best places to find out about us is at our websites, tamarathorne.com and alistaircross.com. All our books - and information about them are listed there. You can always find our books on amazon.com, too.


Thank you for sharing this with everyone Tamara and Alistair
