Day 19: I am zooming over to TJ Hamilton. She is a very interesting person. Check out her 6 Quick Things and her Ten Things in Ten Minutes. You may find out something... * whispers * David Gandy.

Throw her Thyme trilogy onto your TBR piles. I am reading Buying Thyme and Making Thyme shortly. Love the titles.

Welcome TJ.

Author Bio

TJ Hamilton is a former New South Wales Police Officer who worked in various areas of policing around inner city Sydney. She also holds a degree in Criminology through Griffith University. Her love of crime and mystery started at an early age after she read her first Agatha Christie novel at the age of nine. Her fascination with the darker side of life came from living with a high-class escort when she first moved to Sydney in her early twenties. She developed a close understanding of these ‘ladies of the night’ over the years and loved the stories they told, most of whom she has still remained friends with to this day. TJ writes about her first love, the city of Sydney, and the wonderful places around this fabulous location. Her attachment to fashion is also present within her stories, thanks to her handsome Husband and his successful international modelling career. Writing came after leaving the Police Force when she was pregnant with her daughter, she sat down one day and started typing and has not stopped since. Nowadays TJ lives a quiet life in the tropics as a devoted mother and wife who loves her kitty-cats, far from the gun-slinging and criminal-catching days of the past. The action packed life she may have once had is now relived through her sexy fictional stories of mystery and intrigue.

6 Quick Things

A quote that means something to you. 

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, live the life you imagined" 

A song that describes you.

Paul Kelly - I've done all the dumb things

Who is your book boyfriend? 

I was a total sucker for Edward in Twilight when it first came out... love a bit of old-worldy, angry teen angst controlling man-thing! 

Who is your book girlfriend? 

Makedde in Tara Moss' books. Love a kick-ass chick! 

 Author that inspired you and why? 

EL James was my reason to publish my stories. She has opened up a world that has now empowered women to read stories that are left of field. 

I totally hear ya! EL did that to me. I can read quite left of field these days. * waggles eyebrows *
