What, When, Where, Why, How with Sara Taney Humphreys

Welcome to Sara Taney Humphreys!

What hero would you borrow from another authors series that would be perfect for one of your heroines?

Hmmm... Sara, you didn't answer this one? Too many choices out there? Readers, who is your favorite fictional hero? Let's give Sara some help!

When do you write?

When ever I can squeeze in a few minutes to be honest. I have full time job, as most writers do, in addition to a husband, 4 little boys, 2 dogs, and a partridge in a pear tree.'s a cockatiel but you get the idea. I live in an insane house. It's phenomenally loud and never quiet unless the boys aren't home...but if they're not home then neither am I. Usually I wait until night time after they've all collapsed and passed out. Occasionally, my husband will take pity on me during the weekend so I can have some time...but I often am overcome with guilt when the looming pile of laundry mocks me from the corner. So, short answer..(too late)--When ever I can get a minute.

Where did you go on your first date?

A rather pathetic trip to the 7th grade dance. My date, complete with bow tie, glasses and flood water pants--and his similarly clad Father--picked me up in the giant wood paneled station wagon 45 minutes late. Just before we pulled up to the school, he realized that he forgot the tickets and we had to go all the way back to his house to get them. It was the first of many horrendous dating experiences, a foreshadowing if you will.

Why do dogs turn around twice before they lie down?

Once just isn't enough and three times...c'mon that's just silly.

How long do you want to live?

Only as long as my mind and body work properly. The moment I need a diaper or forget my name...I'm out.

Bio: "The Amoveo Legacy", with eXtasy Books, is Sara’s first published novel and the first book in The Amoveo Series. She is a graduate of Marist College, with a B.A. Degree in English Literature & Theater. Her initial career path after college was as a professional actress. Some of her television credits include, “A&E Biography”, “Guiding Light”, “Another World”, “As the World Turns” and “Rescue Me”. For the past several years Sara has been a professional Public Speaker and Speaker Trainer.

Her speaking career began with Monster’s “Making It Count” programs, speaking in High Schools and Colleges around the United States to thousands of students. For the past several years, Sara has worked with The College of Westchester in New York as the Director of High School and Community Relations.

She has been a lover of both the paranormal and romance novels for years. Her sci-fi/fantasy/romance obsession began years ago with the TV Series STAR TREK and an enormous crush on Captain Kirk. That sci-fi obsession soon evolved into the love of all types of fantasy/paranormal; vampires, ghosts, werewolves, and of course shape shifters. Sara lives in New York with her husband of 14 years, their 4 boys, 2 dopey dogs and an extremely loud bird. Life is busy but never dull.

Hi there! Thanks so much for having me here :) I feel so blonde...I missed the first question. What hero would I borrow? Hmmm that's a tough one. I love all of the Carpathians in Christine Feehan's books...BUT...I also love her Ghostwalkers. I guess I'd go with the Norton Twins from her Ghostwalker series! Love those boys.
