#characterinterview with The Seeing Place's Thuli Poni

A warm Maya's Musings welcome to author Aziza Eden Walker.

I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Thuli Poni, the heroine in The Seeing Place, a hot humorous, and heartfelt romance by Aziza Eden Walker (Ankara Press 2016).



1.     Describe yourself in one word.

Alive.

2.     If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

These raging, lustful hormones. Only kidding, wouldn’t change that for the world. Can’t think of something. My shoes?

3.     What do you want most from life?

A man who won’t be intimidated by a powerful woman.

4.     What is your greatest fear?

Having history repeat itself – another dead-end relationship.

5.     What is your greatest regret?

Not leaving a bad marriage sooner.

6.     How do you decide you can trust someone?

I guess if a guy washes the dishes, cooks for his (female) flatmate and takes his Gogo (granny) groceries every weekend, he’s a pretty sure bet. Then again, if he gets a lot of female attention on the dance floor I might worry …

7.     What unusual hobbies or interests do you have?

Making money. I’m very good at it. Oh, and I know a success story when I see one. I generally back the right horse. So to speak. When I’m not, you know, riding him …

8.     What or who is the greatest love of your life?

Andile Sebe.

Have you not read The Seeing Place? Our fraught, red-hot love story’s in there, a blow-by-blow account. Oh, and in This Crazy Paradise you can see what we got up to after our happy ending … I’ll give you a clue. It involves making movies together. And travel.

Enjoy the ride with me.



Meet Thuli Poni and other sassy heroines here.




Thank you for joining us today, Thuli Poni and Aziza Eden Walker!

*** Release Day *** Saving his Wolf by Kerry Adrienne



Welcome, Kerry, to Maya's Musings. Kerry is here today, along with her character Olivia, to promote Saving his Wolf.

Thank you for joining us today!

First up a character interview with Olivia, a blind wolf shifter who is unable to shift.


1. Describe yourself in one word.

Tenacious!

2. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Though I’m both blind and cannot shift, I would choose to be able to shift. Every time I hear my pack mates howling, I’m a bit sad. I want to feel the forest as wolf—the heightened senses of smell and the feel of warm, wet earth under my paws. I dream of it often.

3. What do you want most from life?

I want to be happy. I don’t know exactly what that means, but I have a longing in my heart that isn’t filled yet.

4. What is your greatest fear?

I am afraid people/shifters will pity me because of my perceived disability.

5. What is your greatest regret?

My greatest regret is not being braver sooner. I should have tested my boundaries a long time ago.

6. How do you decide you can trust someone?

Trusting someone is tricky. I used to trust everyone, unless they gave me a reason not to. But lately, I’m finding that more and more people/shifters have ulterior motives and aren’t always as willing to give selflessly. Once someone has broken my trust, I’ll admit that I have a really hard time trusting them again.

7. What unusual hobbies or interests do you have?

Though I’m blind, I’ve learned to prepare food for winter. Canning, drying, and collecting herbs and fruits and helping get them ready to store for winter is something I really enjoy. I especially like to come up with new recipes and take chances on herbs that seem odd in a recipe—and finding out that the combination works.

8. What or who is the greatest love of your life?

Right now, I would have a hard time answering that. It certainly isn’t Alfred, though the pack expects me to marry him. He already has wives and I know he wants me more as a servant than anything. Besides, he’s pretty much a jerk. I don’t want to marry him.

Olivia, born blind and without the ability to shift, yearns to seek her own fate away from her watchful and devoted wolf pack. Vulnerable and stuck in human form, she's alone and at risk in the forest's brutal winter when she's rescued by a park ranger and taken to his cabin in Deep Creek. By the warmth of a crackling fire, she's comforted by his presence. But it's his rugged scent that stirs something in her she's never felt before. 

Bear shifter Powell sensed the instant he held her that Olivia was his mate. He also knew she had the untapped powers to discover her true shifting nature—if only he could convince her to trust in him, and to believe in herself. Now the one thing that stands to threaten their healing mating hunger is Olivia's distrusting and vigilant pack. A pack prepared to do anything to get her back. 

But there is no danger as strong, no desire so liberating as what Powell is bringing out in her—because Olivia can finally see where her destiny lies.
