More About the Author

I have been writing and publishing romances since 1999 when I sold my first two books in the same week (after six years of flogging my work to editors who didn't recognize the staggering genius within). Many of the fifty-plus books I've released so far have been romantic suspense under my own name. I've also squeezed in the odd contemporary and historical romance or two. For a brief stint, I wrote paranormal and urban fantasy romances under the name Teal Ceagh - more on that below.

On March 8, 2011, I went indie. After thirty-five novels published with legacy publishers, I turned to self-publishing, and released the paranormal/urban fantasy romance, BLOOD KNOT, under my real name.

In the future, I will write a lot more paranormal romances (many of them vampire romances) and urban fantasy romances, and quite a few more romantic suspense novels.

Teal Ceagh was created in mid-2009 to allow me to write wildly different types of erotic romances for Ellora's Cave and market them without disrupting my already established readers there. Teal Ceagh wrote the hottest of MMF ménage paranormal romance and urban fantasies that Ellora's Cave have to offer, and that's a pretty extreme jump from the erotic MF romantic suspense I was writing then. I didn't want my established readers to get whiplash.

Lots of people ask about the name, Teal Ceagh.

Actually, it's still really my name. It's my intials: TLC. If you pronounce them, you're saying Teal Ceagh. "Ceagh" is pronounced "see" and it's Irish.

As of March 2011, both Teal Ceagh and Tracy retired from writing erotic paranormal and urban fantasy romances for Ellora's Cave, so Tracy can concentrate on Indie publishing.

When I tell people I've been writing since I was 14 they tend to look at me a little oddly, but it's quite true. I fell in love with Harrison Ford and Star Wars at the exact same moment, and wrote the unofficial sequel in the following year. Of course, I had Han Solo and Leia falling in love long before the sequel came along, and in much more satisfying fashion than George Lucas ever managed.

What I didn't realize at the time, and not for another twenty years or so, was that I had been writing fanfic, possibly the first of its kind.

On a completely off-topic side-note, I used to lie awake at night, listening to the Star Wars soundtrack on my record player, and re-playing the movie in my head, fantasizing about how wonderful it would be to somehow be able to play the movie at home, whenever I wanted. Eight years later I saw my first Beta cassette player. It was the size of a small suitcase and weighed 45 pounds. A few years after that I got to buy my first VHS movie-Star Wars. That was a reflective moment in my life.

However, while things have clearly changed over the years since my first bad attempt at getting a hero and heroine together on paper, two things have not. I'm still writing romances, and I'm still throwing my hero and heroine through a fair imitation of hell while they're sorting their feelings for each other out -- the essence of romantic suspense.

But hey, here's the boring stuff: I'm Australian, although I live in Canada. I still have the accent, although I've been here over a decade now. And I still have trouble remembering it's a hood, not a bonnet, and stuff like that -- you'd be amazed how hard-wired culture really is. It calcifies internally, I think. But the mountains here are stupendous, so I think I'll stick around. Besides, my husband is kinda cute. Oh yeah, did I forget to mention? I met him on the Internet back when it was a few HTML pages and a couple of bulletin boards or two, and me and the kids (three of us) packed up and moved here.

The kids are no longer really kids any more. They're both taller than me now, but I didn't say that aloud, okay? I'd still like them to think I'm the boss for a while longer, at least.

Ms. Cooper-Posey once again works her magic displaying her special gift for bringing a story alive.

Fatal Wild Child is a delightful blend of romance and suspense that with each page turned seems to hurtle along at full throttle holding the reader captive and with each twist and depth of emotion turns something ordinary into the unforgettable and impossible to put down. The detailed and descriptive plotline is full of drama and action visually with each stimulating scenes, believable characters enabling the reader to feel and see everything that takes place in the story. The utterly charming relationship between Seth and Gabrielle is romantic, tender and moving. The characters are extremely well-defined with boundless emotional depth and charming appeal. The involvement of Gabrielle's family enhances the drama and suspense of the plot as well as helping the reader better understand Gabrielle.

A terrific concoction filled with choice amounts of danger, passion and suspense that shouldn't be missed!

Once again Ms. Cooper-Posey pulls the reader in immediately with her fast-paced romantic suspence. I'd been reading a half-dozen other things without any real committment, but within 5 minutes of starting "Fatal Wild Child" I was totally sucked in and unable to put it down. The story takes place in the Canadian Rockies at Christmas time, and I could almost feel the crunch of snow under my feet as I read. Gabrielle and Seth find instant chemistry, but somehow it never comes across as far-fetched. And while the cover art-work evokes the book's sensuality, at the end one is left with the delicious sense of having spent time with some truly intelligent, sensible and responsible individuals who had the good fortune to find each other (and some very nice passion!) in a chaotic world, and the determination to make it work.

This book kept my interest until the very end. Seth is a military man who meets with Gabriella who's brakes gives out and he stops her with the truck and her car lands in the icy water. He jumps in to get her and their story continues. It is more than a romance read and I recommend everyone to read it.

Closing her eyes, and counting to ten . . . Breathe in, breathe out. Christmas break is over in two weeks right? Most people can't wait to spend time with their families over the holiday break. Gabrielle just wants to get away from all the awkward. Always feeling like the family klutz, the one who brings the family name down, she just wants this holiday to be done.

Seth O'Connor was just happy to be home. Ready for a little "normal" time in his life. That small piece of normal, didn't last very long. After something unknown catches his attention, he see a Mustang flying down the road at a crazy rate of speed. Jumping in his truck, he is able to keep up the Mustang enough to know something is wrong. The Mustang isn't stopping because the driver can't make it stop . . . up a head a very dangerous curve, quick thinking and perfect timing. Seth is able to aid the driver in avoiding the dangerous curve, however, it puts the Mustang in the freezing river near by. After Seth pulls Gabrielle from the river he realizes . . . I am in the presence of Gabrielle Sherborne. Her father Cameron Mackenzie Sherborne a big name in Hollywood, a film producer and entertainment entrepreneur.

Off active duty, Seth just wants to relax. However, after returning to the crash site with a buddy and scuba gear, to try to retrieve Gabrielle her camera and laptop, Seth finds more than what he went for. Someone didn't want that Mustang to stop. After snapping photos of the device that was use and sending them for information, Seth is put back on active duty. Job description: Protect Gabrielle Sherborne.

Take a wonderful ride with Gabrielle and Seth, as they discover their lives are about to cross paths in ways they could never imagine.
