for letting me come and chat with you today.
all time favorite T.A. Chase is the Home series from Liquid
Silver Books but you have several series as well as
standalone titles and let's not forget the wildly popular
blog reads. How do you keep it all straight in you head?
series will always have a special place in my heart since No
Going Home, book one, was my first published book ever. At
times, keeping all the characters racing around my head can
be difficult. I need to have one of those number machines
like they have at butcher shops, so my guys can take a
number and I’ll get to them as quickly as possible, but
really, once I get used to all the voices in my mind, it’s
easy to keep them straight.
When you carve out time to write where do you do it?
anywhere, whenever I have a few minutes of free time at
work, on my lunch hour or waiting for my food at a
restaurant. When I’m at home, I have an office set up. I
get easily distracted at times, so I sit with my back to the
door. That way I’m not tempted to go out and watch TV or
anything like that.
you write to music or do you prefer silence?
definitely music. When I sit down to write at home, I plug
in my headphones, turn on my iPod and hit shuffle. I need
background noise for my mind to truly focus on the story and
TV tends to distract me, all those bright colors and moving

storm. On December 2, we can expect Bound by Love from
Samhain Publishing and you have releases coming in January
and February as well. Give us the scoop, spare no details.
Love is a cowboy story (shocking, I know) with BDSM

It’s time he gets a life of his own—and maybe the man he’s
always dreamed of, too.
Alston’s always been attracted to Tyler, but never made a
move because of his own mental and emotional baggage. But
after years spent taming his demons and gaining control in
every aspect of his life, Ren sees the younger man’s return
as a sign of good things to come.
they have to deal with Tyler’s twin, past indiscretions and
Ren’s brothers. Will these cowboys manage to build a strong
foundation of trust and love? Or will their problems be too
much for them?
Explicit manlove. Hot naked cowboys, caramel sauce,
spanking, whipping and a new twist on the old fashioned roll
in the hay.
Devil Dances will be out in January from Liquid Silver Books
as part of their Hearts Afire series. They’re putting out
twelve duets, two short stories, each month. The theme is
firemen and they will be all heat levels and genres. After

2010 with the covers from each book. My release partner is
the awesome Bonnie Dee.

David Browdie hasn't had time for serious relationships, his

reach for the star or sink back into his old life?
you get nervous about new releases?
Yes, I do.
I think I always will, no matter how many books I have out.
There’s always that thought in the back of my mind…what if
the readers don’t like it, especially if it’s a genre or
subject matter I haven’t written before.
Let's go back to the beginning; do you remember where you
were when you got you first contract? Who did you tell
Sure I do.
I was sitting at my computer at home and my first contract
was from Loose-Id for Here Be Dragons. I might have given a
rather undignified shout and did a little jig before going
to tell my partner that I was going to be a published
are you when you're not T.A. Chase the author?
ordinary T.A. I love movies, especially action/adventure
ones. The more car chases and explosions in the movie, the
more I’ll like it. I hang out with friends and my partner,
play golf during the summer. I’m pretty mild-mannered in my
every day life. Nothing to give away my obsession with
Name one thing that your readers would be surprised to know
a hard one. I don’t know if this would surprise anyone, but
I only swim in pools. Oceans and seas have things in them
that could eat me, so I tend to avoid going into salt water…lol.
I mean, intellectually, I know that sharks aren’t out there
hunting me, but I won’t give them a chance to take a bite
out of me by accident.

What can I
say? There’s just something utterly sexy about a man covered
with whipped cream, chocolate, caramel or honey. Sweet and
salty is a combination I’m afraid I’m addicted to.
you have a guilty pleasure?
addiction to dessert toppings…*vbg*, I don’t know if it’s a
guilty pleasure or not, but I love singing in the car. I’m
sure the people in the other cars get a kick out of me.
