Intro to Author Lisa W. Tetting

Bio

I have created stories…since I can remember. In grade school when I felt self conscious I would imagine people I wanted to meet, places I wanted to go, and things I wanted to do. I wrote them on paper tablets, and read them aloud in the comfort of my bedroom. I never allowed anyone to read them for fear of criticism, but I wrote them just the same. I have always enjoyed watching plays and movies, and was fascinated by poems and short stories about foreign worlds and people. My desire to write was there, but I kept it locked inside.

Always told children should be seen and not heard, I developed my observation skills at a young age. That skill set has stayed with me my whole life. Having, what I like to think as, empathic abilities, I wanted to write in order to be express the feelings observed in others…Always keeping a watchful eye out for anything interesting happening in my small town.

My Junior year of college, I was further introduced to African American Literature and found inspiration knowing someone like me could be a world renowned writer. I gained more confidence knowing one day students might actually read one of my stories as a part of their curriculum. With encouragement from my professor I began to feed my imagination and attempted to quench my thirst for stories that stirred up emotions inside me. My favorite books list includes Their Eyes Were Watching God and I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, both very emotional tales. Even though my area of study was Business Administration, I never strayed from the love I had for writing.

Currently I found the courage to leave my corporate job to try my hand at living my dream as a writer. I brushed off my writing skills and rekindled my love of storytelling.

Who knows, one day students may find inspiration in my words as I found in the words of those who paved the way for me. I will pursue my writing as if this notion is already reality, because I am a firm believer in speaking things into existence. I hope others connect with my writing and learn great lessons as well. I look forward to connecting with my readers and having great exchanges.

The Opposite of Hew

A BWWM Novella

Kay McQueen is different from the women in her family. She lives her life for her, not for a man. Though she enjoys an occasional romp with a sexy man, she is not looking for Mr. Right. Her goals in life are to build her home health care business, and to travel the world. Well, at least she has her business life together. The travel thing, not so much. That is until her favorite aunt passes away, leaving a journal with her final wishes.

As far as Kay knows, Aunt Gigi is the ultimate single girl, the life of the party, even pushing eighty years old. What she finds in Gigi’s journal causes her to rethink her position on love and marriage. She embarks on a dual purpose journey; to scatter Gigi’s ashes and to discover love. Along the way, she encounters a man named Heath who is tall, sexy, and has magical hands. His kisses set her body on fire, but when she finds out his true identity, she wants to set him on fire, literally.

Find out how Kay handles the situation and see exactly who Heath is and what it means to Kay’s family. When these two worlds collide, the outcome is explosive. Heath’s lies and deception finally catch up with him, as Kay finds that what she was looking for, she already had. Discover why Happily Ever After isn’t always what it seems.

Read an excerpt here:

I allowed my alarm to blare into the room for three minutes before I begrudgingly unearthed myself from the mountain of covers on my California King. My bed is super comfy, but that’s not the reason I didn’t want to leave it. This was the most dreaded day of the year! This was the day when ALL of my family members got together, for the sole purpose of finding me a man. The McQueen family reunion!

You may think I was overreacting, but I swear, ever since I turned forty they have been coming out of the woodwork. Aunties, uncles, cousins, play cousins, brothers that I don’t have and sisters that I wish I didn’t all congregated under the guise of family, just to torture me. If I had to hear ‘Kay, when are you gonna find you a man and have some babies?’ one more time, I think I might join a convent. That would shut them up. On second thought, the nuns would probably be giving me the side eye too.

 I finally made it onto my feet in a standing position and stumbled into the bathroom to take care of my business. Before the water could even heat in the shower my big sister, Tessa, was blowing up my phone. Mind you, I had a gas water heater, so the water was always hot. I should let her old melon head go to voicemail, but she will keep calling until I answer.

“Good morning Tess. What’s good?”

“What’s good? What young boy did you learn that from? You sound like your nephew when he’s talking to his friends.”

“Did you call to give me lessons on millennial phrases and culture, or was there a purpose to this call?”

I rolled my eyes and removed my toothbrush from its holder, spreading toothpaste on the bristles. I may as well brush while she ranted. There would be no way for me to get a word in edgewise. Putting the call on speaker, I placed my phone on the counter so I could groom properly without being rude.

“Eww, who pissed in your cornflakes this morning? Any who, I just wanted to make sure you were up. You can’t be late for the festivities this year. Auntie Gigi has been asking for you since everyone arrived last night. You should have seen that woman trying to twerk. I swear, Kay, if you don’t get your act together, you will turn out just like her. Old, sad and alone, trying to shake your behind with the young folk.”

Tessa never did get along with Auntie Gigi, but she was my favorite aunt. Somehow, Tessa thought comparing me to her would be an insult, but I would love to live the kind of life Gigi had. Pushing eighty years old and could twerk? Are you kidding me? #lifegoals 

My older sister made a habit of asking me when I was going to settle down and get married. That was her way of showing me that she cared, but her inquiries annoyed me. As a forty something strong African American woman I did not need a man to validate my life!  Though, if I was being honest, I definitely want one sometimes.

Snippet from Arousing Inferno

The finale to the Arousing Series has finally published! Woohoo! It’s hard to believe that I’ve finished my first series, let alone completing three books! But, now it’s time to move on, somewhat, considering my next two books will be spin-offs from the series, haha!!

So, here’s quite a steamy snippet from Arousing Inferno. The Finale.

Cam_Teaser3

 

He stands, pulling me up with him and gathering me in close. He kisses my lips softly, then lays his forehead against mine. “What am I going to do with you?” He sighs.

“Well…I have a few ideas,” I say, lifting one arm around his neck and using the palm of my other hand to massage his shaft through his pants. “You teased me earlier with your pecks, now it’s my turn to tease you.”
“Hmmm…I have no idea what you’re talking about,” he says grabbing at my ass.
“Oh no?” I drop to my knees quickly, unzipping his pants. I pull his dick out so fast he couldn’t try to stop me if he wanted. I guess, I can still move with this belly.
“What the fu–“
Before he can finish, I take him into my mouth. I take my time with it, taking him all in as his shaft grows harder. He looks down at me in excitement as he watches me suck his erection in as far as possible. His “O” face turns me on further, causing me to want to satisfy him more. I suck his dick harder as if trying to get the last of a drink through a straw. He grabs at my braided ponytail, wrapping it around his fist and begins shoving himself into my mouth.
“Karisma…fuck!” he shouts as he continues to thrust himself in and out of me. He fucks my face faster, tightening his grip on my ponytail. “Agh!” he shouts as I feel his warm liquid squirt in my mouth and slide down my throat. He lifts me to my feet hurriedly and shoves his tongue in my mouth, ravenously kissing me. “See what three months of not fucking me did! Now you got me cumming all fast and shit!”

Arousing Inferno. The Finale.

I started my publishing journey in 2016, with the release of Part One in the Arousing Series – “Arousing Consequences”. Not sure why I thought for one second, “Oh, this will be a cake walk”, because it WAS NOT. I obviously lost my marbles! It has been a long, exhausting and tearful road, with never-ending layovers of doubt. But, even though I’m able to close the chapter on my first series, I look forward to moving on with my writing career.

Just for your own information, the first of the series (Arousing Consequences) can be downloaded FREE…so what do you have to lose. Besides, who doesn’t love sexy suspense with their romance. ⇒ Download Now

Let’s Talk the Finale

Arousing Inferno begins right from the end of Arousing Secrets, the second book of the series. So needless to say, this drama needs to be read in order. Trust me, you don’t want to miss the twists and turns that will be sure to keep you on your toes…or getting so mad you “toss the book across the room” as reviewers have mentioned, lol. Hey, what’s a good book without some emotional connection?

All questions are answered, as well as constructing a plan to deal with the villain of the story, Thomas Malcolm.

Camteaser2

Of course, I don’t want to give too much away, so here’s the blurb:

Taking back control.
I’m sick of this! It’s been a year of secrets that have revealed themselves at the cost of my life. Who knew that meeting the man of my dreams…my future…the other half of my soul would uncover such turmoil. Turmoil that may be beyond our control, but our future can’t survive until the secrets of the past are diminished…or killed.
That secret being Thomas Malcolm.
That lowlife snake who has tried to destroy my father, Jackson, and me…my family. I’ve even had to kill someone because of him! I’m done with this. Done with letting Malcolm run our lives. Done living in fear. Done waiting for his next formidable move. It’s my turn. And I’m nobody’s pawn! It’s time to end him…end this…Inferno.

Arousing Consequences: The Right Side of Wrong (The Arousing Series Book 1)
By: Cam Johns
5 out of 5 starsThe story Arousing Consequences: The Right Side of Wrong (The Arousing Series Book 1) by Cam Johns is an erotica/romance book. This is a wonderful book the I loved reading. It is a story that had me hooked from the very beginning and I didn’t want to put down until I had finished the last page. It has steamy loves scenes that will have you turning on the fan and reaching for a glass of ice water. This story also includes mysteries that must be solved which could lead to danger. I loved the main character of Karisma Washington. She is a woman who is smart, beautiful, and not afraid of saying what she means and doing what she must, even if those that are there to protect her disagree with her course of action. This story finds Karisma starting a new job at a Rehabilitation Center. She finds her world changing as secrets are revealed regarding someone close to her. She also finds herself with an attraction to a man that has vowed to protect her. There is strong chemistry between these two and they act on the passion that they feel for each other. I loved reading how Karisma and the one she has feelings for interact. Has Karisma learned all the secrets that were hidden or are there still some that are yet to be revealed? What does the future hold for both Karisma and the man that she is falling in love with? This the first book that I have read by the author and the first book in a series. This story does end in a cliffhanger and I can’t wait to read the next one. This author has written a wonderful story that has amazing characters. This book does include mature subject matter with lots of steamy love scenes. It would be recommended for those 18 years of age or older.

Snippet:

“Kevin, what are you still doin’ up?” I say still stumbling out of my shoes.

“Waiting for you obviously…who was that?”

“Oh, that was Jackson from work. He ended up meeting us at the club.”

“Why is he bringing you home, I thought you were ridin’ with Alyssa?”

“She had something to do…..what’s with the interrogation Kevin?”

“I wanna know who this man is driving my woman around. I don’t know that dude.”

“Chill, he’s no one. I’m tired…going to bed now.” I turn to walk up the stairs when Kevin walks in front of me. “What!”

“Relax…did you have a good time?” He asks softly pulling me towards him.

“Fuck you Kevin!” I say very much annoyed and angry for some reason.

“Oh you mad now. Why? I have the right to know what’s going on.” I stare at him furiously. Oh yes, that’s why.

“You have the right? The right? You’ve got some serious nerve asshole.” I pull away from him and try to start up the stairs. He yanks me back down, pushing me into the wall lifting an arm above my head. “What are you doing?” He says nothing staring down at me grabbing my other hand to pull above my head. Holding both my hands up in one of his, he uses the other to grab my chin and tries to kiss me, but I turn my head.

“C’mon boo.” He whispers. “I’m sorry.”

“You’re a jerk.” I say not as angry.

“I know.” He slowly glides his lips across my neck. “I’m sorry.” He whispers nibbling on my ear lobe. He glides his free hand down the front of my dress until he reaches the bottom and pulls it up until my underwear is visible. He sneaks his fingers in at the top of my panties and tries to slide two of them between my legs. “Open.” He whispers in my ear. I abide by his wish spreading my legs for him. He slides two fingers back and forth against my clit. “Your pussy’s not mad at me I see.” He says moving his fingers faster.

“I-I fuck-ing hate you so-meti-mes.” I say with labored breathing.

“I know.” I open my eyes to him, hating that he’s able to do this to me. “You’re so fucking beautiful. I want you to cum right now.” He kisses me hard sliding his fingers inside of me and pounds his hand against my clit steadily. Oh. I thrust my pelvis toward him, then back and forth as if I’m riding him. He always knows how to make me feel so sexy.  “Yeah…let it out boo.”

“I’m gonna cum!” I shout. He kisses me hard as I come down from my explosion. Finally calmed, I look up at him defeated. “I think you can let my arms down now.” I whisper and smile.

“I dunno… I kinda like having this control over you.” He says with this sly smirk. I giggle as he finally lets me go. Wrapping my arms around his neck, I pull him down to my lips, kissing him softly.

“You think you know me so well don’t you?”

“I think I do.” He pulls me upstairs, “Let’s get you out of these clothes boo. I know you’re tired.”

“Yes, let’s.” We go upstairs where he undresses me then lays me in the bed. He slides in behind me and we fall asleep in each other’s arms for the rest of the night.

Arousing Secrets

Amazon Review:

Arousing Secrets: What’s Done in the Dark: An Erotic Suspense (The Arousing Series Book 2) By Cam Johns is an emotional ride that leaves you with a huge book hangover. This book picks up right where Karisma and Jackson left off in book one. Karisma can’t keep dealing with the secrets everyone around her seems to be keeping and Jackson can’t stop himself from protecting Karisma even if that means keeping things from her but is he willing to keep things secret if it pushes her away? These two deal with so many twist and turns in this mystery filled book. This author knows all the right ways to keep you on the edge of your seat while you’re left with feelings of heartbreak and heart warming moments. This story is just as amazing as book one. It’s beautifully written and well thought out with characters you love and root for from the sidelines. I couldn’t put this book down without knowing what was happening next and this author does suspense and mystery so well you get lost between real life and book world. The relationship between Karisma and Jackson is one that any person would wish to have. I give this book five stars and I anxiously wait for the next book to see where Karisma and Jackson takes us next.
How About A Snippet:

I decide to just let go and give into our bodies’ desire. I lean forward giving him my unspoken answer. He caresses my lips with his softly, barely touching. Everything melts away. We’re suddenly alone, clear-headed and nothing holding us back. It’s just us. He places my head in his hands and kisses me softly and slowly as if he wants to savor my touch…our intensity…our love. He massages my impatient lips perfectly against his. Oh, my. He slowly sneaks his tongue into my mouth and back out as he grabs at my ponytail and I fist in his hair. I’ve missed this. He just makes me feel sexy, and most important, loved. As he slows down his assault and kisses me on the corners of my mouth, he places his forehead against mine. With my head still in his hands, I look up at him as he stares down at me.

“You said you’d never leave me again.” He says quietly, his words slicing through me.

Intensity

As night falls, I stealthily stare in admiration,
the moonlight defining his muscular torso persuades my carnal frustration.
Hurriedly removing my underwear, my arousal urgent,
forcefully ready to eradicate my lascivious perversion.

Quickly removing the covers from his body without warning,
I grab him below as he jolts awake ready to appease my yearning.
Our eyes connect as his rod stiffens within my gripping coercion,
my intensity contagious as he pulls me in close, without aversion.

Finding his way inside my moist mound,
our pleasure explodes through our harmonic sounds.
The sweltering desire builds between us,
abruptly finding release following our assailing thrusts for thrusts.
