Sundae With Nuts – Tera Shanley

October 20th, 2013

Welcome to another saucy episode of SUNDAE WITH NUTS where I have asked my fellow authors to join me for the day for a bit of fun and a laugh. We are romance writers after all!

Without further ado, I am most pleased to introduce the lovely and talented (and very brave!) Tera Shanley!

Sundae with the Nut Tera Shanley

1.Favorite knickers: cotton, lace, silk or errr…leather?
Three of the four are decorating my lingerie drawer at the moment but I’m going with cotton. Not boring cotton though – Victoria’s Secret cotton with bright colors, animal prints, and pretty cuts. Comfy-smexy.

2.Who is your fantasy male or female? Or both?
Charlie Hunnam (Jax from Sons of Anarchy) is delicious. I don’t usually even go for blonds but good lawdy him on a motorcycle, or him fighting monsters in Pacific Rim, or basically any second he spends without a shirt on…I’m rambling…one more! Have you ever heard him in an interview? You’d never know it but he is…wait for it…British!

3.What language, when heard spoken, makes you frisky? (like Jamie Lee Curtis in A Fish called Wanda)
I WOULD say Tagalog because my husband is Filipino, but since he only learned the word ‘fart’ and a slew of curse words in his native language, I’m going to go with any language or accent from Scotland (Diana Gabaldon and her Outlander series are to blame for this obsession).

4.What vehicle, abode, beach, construction site or other locale did you lose your virginity.
In a two-man underwater submarine with a school of frenzied great white sharks swimming around us. Just kidding, it wasn’t anything exotic. Lost the old V-card in a fancy hotel room on my wedding night. Champagne and chocolate covered strawberries were involved. It was kind of AMAZING! (my song choice below will now make sense;)

5.Do you believe in love at first sight?
Yep! I saw my husband from behind (he has a lovely behind) on the first day of college classes, and before I even knew his name, I told my roommate at the time I was going to marry him. I just knew. And five years later, I did.

6.If you could play a board game during sex, what would it be?
Not really a board game but strip poker would be my jam.

7.Any special “toys” you’d like to give mention to for their outstanding achievements?

8.I *heart* Peter Cetera. What song immediately swoops you back to your “first days” of falling in love?
The Waiting (Is the Hardest Part) by Tom Petty and the Heart Breakers. Really anything from Tom Petty because my husband was (still is) obsessed with him and his enthusiasm was catching.

9.Most romantic or sexiest destination out there.
Hawaii! We went there for our honeymoon and I’m borderline desperate to go back with my dude. Like, sell a kidney with little remorse desperate.

10.Who was your first crush or kiss?
First crush was a boy in my kindergarten class named Travis King. He put his jacket around my shoulders once on the playground and I asked why he did that. “Saw it on TV,” he replied. Swoon. My teacher called a parent/teacher conference with my mom and dad because she was worried I was headed to floozyville at the tender age of five.

11.If you become a best-selling author and sell your movie rights, what will be the first thing you do when you hear? Other than contact Cd Brennan and offer to share with her, of course.
I’d buy big land and build a tiny house! And then I’d buy horses…lots and lots of them. I’ve been literally asking for a horse for every single holiday since I was three. *shakes fist* One of these days I’ll wear someone down enough to say yes.

12.I wanted to be a helicopter pilot and a cowgirl when I grew up (still do). What did you want to grow up to be when you were a little girl?
A veterinarian. My poor mom had to deal with me bringing every furred and feathered creature I could find home with me. When I mention that time I brought a ferret home to live with us, she still gets an eye twitch.

And last but now least.

13. Favorite ice cream flavor.
Strawberries & Homemade Vanilla from Blue Bell

Ooooh, so many good ones, where do I start? First, just have to say it’s such a pleasure to have Miss Tera as a Nut. She is one of the shiniest, most positive authors out there. Seriously. And you know what? I reckon that energy comes around, eh? Tera is raging a path as a very successful author. So hear ye, everyone. BELIEVE.  
Okay, on we go. OMG, where did you get that pic of Charlie Hunnam. If I was 15 years younger, I’d write him a postcard. Love your one-word answer to #7 LOL. No explanation needed. And you lost your V-card on your wedding night? No wonder you write romance! You’re a believer! (Cue Monkeys, I loved that song Daydream Believer). I think I have a theme going here.
Favorite Petty song for me? Even the Losers. Had a house in college we called the Loser House and that was our theme song. Oh god, we were so dramatic back then, but feckin’ good memories. 
Oh, and stick with Tagalog – make him learn it and whisper it to you as you sup over a lovely romantic dinner. Nothing sexier than from someone you adore. 
And my dream if I ever strike it big is also land and horses, like you Miss Tera. Yeehah, girlfriend, that is one dream I won’t let go quietly into that goodnight. Horses are my totem, my animal spirit, and with them, I must reside.
