Interview with Tamra Lassiter

Susana: Do you ever wish you were someone else? Who?

Tamra: No. Maybe it sounds corny, but I love my life.

Susana: What did you do on your last birthday?

Tamra: My family took me out to dinner. I did practically nothing all day and it was wonderful. I use the “birthday card” to get out of housework and make my kids stop arguing with each other. It was awesome.

Susana: Do you have any tattoos?  Where? When did you get it/them? Where are they on your body?

Tamra: No. I have thought about, but never took the plunge. I wanted to get the Ferrari horse tattooed to my hip, but my dad told me that after I had children, it would look like an old nag. That was the end of that.

Susana: What are you working on right now?

Tamra: I’m currently working on a couple projects. One is a romantic suspense that takes place in Williamsburg, VA and another is a young adult series about a young woman who can fly.

Susana: Tell us about your latest release.

Tamra: Something To Lose is romantic suspense novel set in the Finger Lakes region of New York. Camden Piotrowski walks in on her boyfriend with another woman. She’s consoling herself with a bubble bath, wine and cookie dough when handsome FBI Agent Seth Vendetti charges into her bathroom. Camden finds out that many of the people in her life are not who she thought they were. Can she trust anyone? Can she trust Seth Vendetti?

About Something to Lose

MEDIA KIT STL-Web-CoverEveryone has something to lose.

Camden Piotrowski is justifiably upset to find her boyfriend in the arms of another woman. But it’s not the end of her world and definitely not something that a bubble bath, good wine, and cookie dough won’t help. Her pity party is interrupted when handsome Seth Vendetti bursts into her bathroom. She soon discovers that her world and those in it are not as they seem. Can she trust Seth’s version of the truth and make him realize that even he has something to lose?


I finish and place my plate and fork on the coffee table and turn to face Joey. He’s totally into me, or seems to be, but is it enough for him to want to go for the full gusto? He leans towards me and lightly kisses me just below my right ear. The motion does absolutely nothing for me other than make me feel a little nauseous. It’s not like when Seth’s lips touch me. Thoughts of Seth make my cheeks flush. Joey must take that as a good sign because he goes for my lips next. I fight the urge to flee and try to fake enjoyment. Does it work? Can he tell?

Joey’s hands move around my neck. He pulls me closer. I pull away and look to him shyly

“You feel it, don’t you?” he asks, a creepy smile on his face.

I smile, as if I’m embarrassed. I know my cheeks are still flushed, mostly with worry for what I’m about to do. I nod my head towards Comb-Over and Crooked Nose, who have just taken seats at the table. “Can they go somewhere?” I ask as innocently as possible. I even bat my eyelashes a couple times just for effect. Joey smiles again, this time triumphant, a knowing smile and then snaps his fingers. The men exit my apartment without saying a word.
