HENNESSEE ANDREWS - Tattoos and Cupcakes

Welcome to The Writer’s Studio, Hennessee. I’m looking forward to having each of you ladies from the Sunset Point series. Because I want to focus on your new release, TATTOOS AND CUPCAKES (9/19) and the AWESOME giveaway, I’m going to give you what I call my Fast Five. Are you ready?

1. You mention the varied personalities in your family. You’ve chosen distinct personalities for Dane and Bannock. What do you like best about each of these men?
Bannock Garrison, my sexy Sunset Point police officer, is the strong and brooding type. He is honest and cares deeply about protecting Sunset Point. What I like most about him is that although he is strong, he possesses a tender heart that has been hurt. He has issues about women and ménage relationships in general and has to overcome the obstacles that keep him from love.

Dane is the hot tattoo artist that came to Sunset Point from Texas. He is cocky, witty, and goes after what he wants. Above all, he is honest and speaks his mind. His most admirable quality is that fact he doesn’t give up.  As an artist he is a natural and applies his talent in an area he loves.

2.  FBI? Witness to a murder? Tattoos? Menage? How much research did you do for this fun mix of professions?
To be honest I didn’t need to do a lot of research except for in the cupcake area. I did spend a lot of time coming up with ingredients and titles for exotic cupcakes. Too much fun. As far as my men, well, I looked at oodles of hot pics in order to find the perfect match to the image I conjured. I studied tattoos so that I could describe Dane’s gorgeous ink. There was some research into WITSEC since my heroine falls under their protection. With the murder, I had to dig deep and put myself at the scene in order to describe what Lane witnessed and try to accurately explain how she felt. By far though, the most difficult part of this adventure was learning about all the characters in all the books so I could help tie the series together with fun cameos.

3.  What attracts you to writing Menage?
 For me, the attraction to writing ménage was the challenge. I love the dynamics of such a relationship and how different personalities collide and scorch the bedroom with heat. The very idea of two men and one woman is just off the scales hot!

4.  Who would portray each of your three characters in a movie?
Wow, this is fun. Hmmm, for Dane Hutchinson I’d say Jensen Ackles He is the closest match to Dane’s character I imagined. As for Bannock Garrison there is a toss up between Chris Pine or Jake Gyllenhaal. Lane Erikson, my heroine, would have to be portrayed by Rachelle Lefevre. 

5.  Best writing advice you ever received?
Best advice ever, “Not everyone will like your writing.”  This is the truest statement I’ve ever heard. I find that it is an impossible task to please every reader even though I’d love it if I could. 


CODE WORD:
HAMMOCK


BLURB:
[Ménage Amour: Erotic Ménage a Trois Romance, M/F/M, bondage, spanking, food play, sex toys, HEA]

Being sequestered on Sunset Point Island is the least of Lane Erikson’s worries. Being a witness to a murder may be her demise. What does one do when a network of FBI wanted criminals are looking to kill you? You run like hell, even it’s to a place you’ve never heard of.

Dane Hutchinson, local tattoo artist, sets his sights on winning Lane’s affection and sharing her with Bannock Garrison, Sunset Point police officer. Bannock never wanted a ménage relationship, even though his parents have lived a happy life in one. The idea of sharing a woman bothers him, but losing Dane’s friendship bothers him more.

As the relationship begins to soar with possibilities, Lane is faced with her world crashing down again, and her life hangs in the balance. Can Bannock and his colleagues save the day? More importantly, can Bannock overcome his distrust for women and allow Lane into his heart and share her with his best friend?

EXCERPT:
Lane didn’t waste any time. She tossed off her apron, not needing to be told twice. “I’ll be back in a little bit,” she called over her shoulder and bounded out the front door. Bannock may have a past that still hurt, but damn it, she did, too. Realistically, Lane felt she shouldn’t be able to trust men again, but Dane had made her believe in love and the pursuit of love again. If she was putting her heart out there, so could Bannock. Underneath his gruff and uncaring attitude, Lane knew Bannock had feelings for her, too. One stupid woman who couldn’t see what an amazing man he is shouldn’t still have a hold on him, she decided. He is lucky, his ex isn’t trying to kill him or have him killed. Big baby.

About Hennessee Andrews:
I reside in southwestern Missouri but I call Oklahoma home; it's where my family and I are from. I'm blessed to have two older brothers, an older sister and a younger brother. Each is as different as day and night and all have unique personalities that are easy to love. My mother has been my inspiration and the first to set me straight when I wanted to give up. She always would say, "Can't never could do anything." I believed her and I have tried on many different hats trying to find my niche in life, and there have been many. Thank goodness I finally found a personal passion and it only took thirty-seven years--not too shabby.

Outside of writing, working, being a mom and wife. I love genealogy and have researched extensively over the years. History is fascinating to me as well as mythology and ancient religions. I'm a firm believer in karma and that everyone has a special talent. Sometimes they ignore it while others embrace it. As for me, well, I'm embracing mine and learning something new every step of the way.

CATCH UP WITH HENNESSEE!
