Author Interview: Tammie Clarke Gibbs

Today we go behind the scenes with author Tammie Clarke Gibbs & her new Time Travel Romance, Sworn to Secrecy. 

Tammie Clarke Gibbs is the author of the #1 Kindle Best Selling Gothic/Time Travel Romance Island of Secrets which has been consistently on three of the Amazon Best Seller Lists for over eighteen consecutive months. She is the author of three novels and multiple non-fiction titles. Tammie resides with her husband, son, and a very spoiled Maltese in South Georgia.  She loves to hear from her fans and can be reached at her website and via email.

Where did the idea for the book come from?
I have a very interesting family history book. It’s not on my immediate family name, but on my great grandmother’s side. It’s a little red book with an interesting crest on it (a bloody palm). Both  general ideas for both my first book ISLAND OF SECRETS and my newest book SWORN TO SECRECY came from this little book and the family, local folklore. Of course, I’ve embellished and added a romance to each of the stories.
Which character is your favorite, and why?
This book has too many favorites, which is why I keep writing giving the supporting characters leading roles in future books.
Have your characters (in this book or any other) ever done anything that surprised you?
Yes, they started rewriting the story. It’s pretty spooky when you become the conduit for channeling fictional characters.
Time-travel stories are a pretty specialized, and well-loved, genre. What are your favorite time-travel books?
Two of my favorite time travel romance authors are Jude Devearux and Lynn Kurland. I have all of their books.
What would you like readers to take away with them at the end of your book?
That love can grow from adversity and has the power to conquer even when stuggling against all the odds.
What’s next on the horizon for you?
My next book will also be a paranormal but will be the first in a new series of books on lesser-known  legends. Readers will love this book because it will be reminiscent of the love across century’s theme in Island of Secrets. I’ve been plotting this book for a few years now, and it’s almost ready to be written.  Thank you for giving me the opportunity to visit with you on your blog.
