Today I’m celebrating one year since I signed the contract for Beneath the Starry Sky, my second release, and only contemporary romance to this point. And I brought Tamara Johnson, the heroine from BTSS with me.
Welcome, Tamara, to the 1Night Stand blog. Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
Tamara: Well, I’m a sales representative for a pharmaceutical company. And…*glances around at her audience* I have Alopecia Areata, which is an autoimmune disease that results in the loss of hair in patches, or a total loss. *fingers her short locks* I’m lucky that mine has started to grow back, but there is the possibility I will lose it again.
Wow, that is certainly a lot to deal with. Why did you decide to apply to 1Night Stand?
Tamara: My fiancé abandoned me at the alter due to my bald patches. After that, all my hair fell out. Even wearing an expensive wig, I didn’t think I could give a man any more than one night. Once he saw my bare head, he would leave me alone again. 1Night Stand fit my needs, and I didn’t go in expecting more than one night with the man I was set up with.
So what did you think of Josh when you first saw him?
Tamara: I thought he was the sexiest man ever, but when he told me he wasn’t my date and then left, I was extremely disappointed. At that point, I thought my date had somehow found a picture of me bald, and decided to call off the date.
But he did come back?
Tamara: Yes, he said he forgot about the one-night stand and thought I was some crazed fan. The funny thing was, I didn’t even know he was a television star until he told me. But when he returned to the room, he caught me with my wig off. I thought he would leave again, just like my fiancé did. Turns out, he has his own issues and could relate. The rest of our date was one big whirlwind, a night I will never forget.
I assume things went well then?
Tamara: Yes, very well, and they continue to do so.
Can you tell us your favorite thing about Josh?
Tamara: Other than the fact that he is sexy as sin? He’s a romantic at heart, and always treats me like I’m the most precious thing in the world.
Well, I wish you two the very best. Thank you for being here, today.
Tamara: It was my pleasure.
