Happy Friday! This week’s guest is Raine O’Tierney. Thanks, Raine.

To know more about Raine O’Tierney, check out or see what she’s up to on twitter (@Raineotierney). Her latest literary triumph is the TOTALLY FREE Sing Me Your Love Song and is available here.


1) Do you check your horoscope on a regular basis?

I don’t, but I *love* my sign–Pisces. We’re supposedly creative folk! I’d like to believe it’s true. We might just be fishy. (Baddup-pssh!)

2) Transcontinental railroad trip or cruise around the Cape of Good Hope?

Transcontinental railroad trip! One of my most exciting adventures was taking the train for the first time in Japan. I’ve actually never been on a train in the U.S. but as long as I have somewhere to place my Chromebook, I think I would be quite happy riding the rails for days on end.

3) Christmas décor: simple and rustic or decked out to the nines?

Okay, I adore Christmas decorations–I do! But I sometimes feel like they are meant for people who are not quite as, erm, lazy as I am. We have a two foot tree. Fold out branches. It comes with lights attached. And yet there are years I can’t be bothered to get it out of the box and put it on the table.

4) What is your favorite word?


5) How would you spend one Saturday/overnight/Sunday in Las Vegas?

Researching! Gambling (for research), seeing shows (for research), eating and drinking (for research), talking to the hookers? (For research!) I actually have no idea. I’m really more of a ‘Go to the movies’ than ‘Go to Vegas’ sort of gal. 😉

Raine O’Tierney wants to change the world… one sweet story at a time. Known as “The Queen of the Sweetness” Raine_OTierney(well, a few people have said it anyway!) Raine loves writing sweet, character-driven stories about first loves, first times, fidelity, forever-endings and… friskiness? In addition to her solo works, she’s one half of a collaborative team with author Debbie McGowan. When she’s not writing, Raine is either playing video games or fighting the good fight for intellectual freedom at her library day job. She believes the best thing we can do in life is be kind to one another, and she enjoys encouraging fellow writers. Contact her if you’re interested in talking about point-and-click adventure games or discussing which dachshunds are the best kinds of dachshunds!
