Spotlight Interview and New Release: A Demon’s Witch by Tena Stetler

tena7 300-2Please welcome the awesome Tena Stetler to my blog today! Tena is also a fellow Wild Rose Press author and we’re celebrating her new release, A Demon’s Witch. This is one spectacular cover and I’m itching to start reading this story.

Before I share more about this book, go grab your favorite beverage, get comfy, and let’s meet Tena…

MM: Describe a typical writing day. Are you a morning, afternoon, or night-owl writer?

TS: Before dawn, I’m up with my husband. Once he is off to work, I sit down at the computer, check my email then start writing. Usually spend about 6 hours a day.  Wednesdays, I do promotions before I start writing. Boy is promotion a learning curve the first time around.  I am a night owl by nature, but to get everything done when most people are available, I’m forced into a morning routine.

MM: Tena, it took me six long months to find the balance between promotion and writing. It sounds like you have a system that works. Can you tell us about your current work-in-progress?

TS: I’m so glad you asked. It’s a full length paranormal romance.  A Vampire’s Unlikely Alliance is the second in the Demon’s Witch series and is in the editing stage.  My goal is to have it completed by end of October. The story revolves the Vampire Council’s assassin, his decision to abandon that life and the obstacles he encounters. Just when he thinks he has everything figured out, the appearance of a seductive mystery woman turns his world upside down.  I’m excited about the story and have enjoyed writing it.

MM: Jumping for joy hearing there’s another one in the series! What inspires you when you’re writing?

TS: Life events and putting a paranormal spin on them. I love to play the what if game. People watching and my overactive imagination inspire me also.

MM: Interesting, Tena. As you already know, I’m a huge fan of the paranormal. What’s your favorite item on your writing desk?

My desk cropedTS: It’s not on my desk, but hangs on the wall beside my desk. A picture of a wolf  painted on a piece of metal carved like an aspen leaf.  It’s beautiful!

MM: It’s stunning! Thanks for sharing. Now for some fun questions. Do you prefer…

Champagne or Beer? Neither, I love cola slurpee’s the 40 oz size every Friday. LOL

Southern drawl or Scottish burr? While both can be interesting, I love a Scottish burr.

Kilt or Leather pants? Tight black leather pants.

Print book or e-reader? Oh, definitely e-reader. You can adjust the font size.

I loved having you here today, Tena! Wishing you all the best with you release.



Keeping a lid on all the paranormal beings inhabiting Washington D.C. is a daunting job. Bruce, a six hundred year old demon and the Territory Overlord of the Western Hemisphere, keeps his finger on the pulse of DC’s power players through the activities at his highly successful Wycked Hair Salon. His movie star good looks and body builder physique keeps his dance card full and the rumor mills running. Within these walls, his anonymity is safe, mostly.

Bruce’s world spins out of control when Angelique, a pint size, gorgeous witch, with an attitude breezes through the doors of his salon. She is the younger sister of Tristian, Bruce’s long time trusted enforcer, whose professional skills are second to none. Tristian is furious at the relationship between Bruce and Angelique, a dangerous situation. The undeniable attraction between demon and witch promises to tear apart both their professional and personal worlds.


Suddenly, he felt the magic aura shift and switched his attention to the front door. She breezed in, hair like spun gold flowing to her waist, with a seductive yet regal body and a sway to her hips that should be illegal even in DC. She wore a snug rose and cream colored sweater, cut low enough he could see the swells of her rounded breasts, tailored black slacks that fit her cute ass like a glove and four-inch spike heels.  She paused in the center of the salon, wet from the sudden spring storm, and lowered the briefcase she’d used as an umbrella. Her sparkling violet eyes glanced up to the mezzanine where Bruce stood watching. Blatantly her gaze wandered over his well-muscled body, undressing him piece by piece, until he felt naked. He shook his head slightly and smoothed his shirt and slacks with his hand, just to make sure he was still wearing them.

On the first floor, Owen, a stocky well-muscled man of slightly over six foot, with thick silver hair that fell to his shoulders, smiled and stepped toward her holding out a large towel. “Mother Nature frown on you?” His dark amber eyes twinkled as he watched water pool at her feet.

“It would seem so.” She grinned and took the towel, dried off then knelt down to wipe up the puddle.

“Don’t worry about it.” Owen snapped his fingers. Mia came from the back room with a wheeled bucket and a mop. “It’s been one of those mornings.” He reached out, took the towel from her, and handed it to Mia. “Now, what can I do for you?”

Author Bio – With the majestic Rocky Mountains for a backdrop, Tena Stetler is a paranormal romance author with an over-active imagination.  She wrote her first vampire romance at the age of eleven, to the chagrin of her mother and the delight of her friends. Tena finds stories in the strangest places, while camping, kayaking, or hiking in the mountains. Even at the hair salon ie A Demon’s Witch.  So far, she’s only found one dead body (imagined not real) during a camping trip, turned it into an exciting paranormal romantic suspense that’s nearly complete.

For many years, Tena worked as a paralegal for a criminal law firm. You won’t believe the tales she can spin from that experience!

Colorado is her home; shared with her husband, a brilliant Chow Chow, a spoiled parrot and a forty-year-old box turtle.  She loves the adventure of a road trip. Together with her husband and their companion animals, they have logged thousands of miles in their RV visiting over 3/4 of the United States.  The great northeast is still on the bucket list.  Salem on Halloween, sounds great!

  10. Enjoyed your interview. Impressed that you write six hours a day. Maybe someday when I retire from my day job and my husband sells his business. Best wishes on sales. And I love your wolf art piece!

    • Writing full time is my day job after years of working for others. I am enjoying it. Funny story about that wolf art. I rode along with my husband to a job he had to check on. Happened to be at a rail yard. I went in the office and there is was hanging on the wall, dusty and abandoned. I walked out of the office stood for a few minutes and decided I had to have it for my office. It gives me inspiration everyday. It was a great find.

  11. Mary, thanks so much for having me, this has been a blast! I hope you’ll have time for me again the first of the year when Charm Me comes out in Jan or Feb, just in time for Valentine’s Day! Thinking about trying my hand at a trailer for Charm Me. We’ll see.
