Blurb – Keeping a lid on all the paranormal beings inhabiting Washington D.C., is a daunting job. Bruce, a six hundred year old demon and the Territory Overlord of the Western Hemisphere, keeps his finger on the pulse of DC’s power players through the activities at his highly successful Wycked Hair Salon. His movie star good looks and body builder physique keeps his dance card full and the rumor mills running. Within these walls, his anonymity is safe, mostly.
Bruce’s world spins out of control when Angelique, a pint size, gorgeous witch, with an attitude breezes through the doors of his salon. She is the younger sister of Tristian, Bruce’s long time trusted enforcer, whose professional skills are second to none. Tristian is furious at the relationship between Bruce and Angelique, a dangerous situation. The undeniable attraction between demon and witch promises to tear apart both their professional and personal worlds.
Suddenly, he felt the magic aura shirt and switched his attention to the front door. She breezed in, hair like spun gold flowing to her waist, with a seductive yet regal body and a sway to her hips that should be illegal even in DC. She wore a snug rose and cream colored sweater, cut low enough he could see the swells of her rounded breasts, tailored black slacks that fit her cute ass like a glove and four-inch spike heels. She paused in the center of the salon, wet from the sudden spring storm, and lowered the briefcase she’d used as an umbrella. Her sparkling violet eyes glanced up to the mezzanine where Bruce stood watching. Blatantly her gaze wandered over his well-muscled body, undressing him piece by piece, until he felt naked. He shook his head slightly and smoothed his shirt and slacks with his hand, just to make sure he was still wearing them.
And now, let’s get to know Tena…
Where did you get the idea for A Demon’s Witch?
My hair dresser, Jen, and I were discussing the strange things that happened in a hair salon. Then my husband and I were talking about the music industry, we’re both former DJ’s. A 1969 summer hit about a male hairdresser came up in conversation and I mused, “What if the hairdresser was an alpha male, Demon Overlord of the Western Hemisphere that owned a salon in Washington DC?” That’s how A Demon’s Witch was born.
Why did you choose this genre?
Because I think people read to be entertained and escape the real world for just a little while. I like creating a world with magic and paranormal creatures that will do and use anything to overcome all obstacles for their happily ever after.
Was there anything unusual, any anecdote about this book, the characters, title, process, etc, you’d like to share?
This book was National Novel Writing Contest project. The title, A Demon’s Witch, came to me in the middle of the night and when I woke up my husband to tell him I’d finally decided on a title, he was less than impressed.
What is the most difficult thing about writing a book?
Getting the characters to do what I want. Finally, I’ve learned to just tell their story and all is well.
What was the most difficult thing about this one in particular?
Not necessarily the most difficult, but most frustrating. Keeping Willow from stealing the spotlight. She is the heroine, Angie’s best friend. For some reason, she was a very strong secondary character. Maybe she wants her own book. LOL I truly enjoyed writing this book and was sad to see it end. I can’t wait to share it with everyone.
What’s the main thing that you could get rid of in your life that would give you more writing time?
Cleaning House. I love a clean house, but I hate doing it. It’s a time sink if you ask me.
What is one word you would use to describe yourself? Outgoing What is one word you think others might use to describe you? Headstrong
What’s your favorite book of all time and why?
Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone. Because it is a tale of anything is possible. First Harry’s journey from mistreated boy to talented wizard and JK Rowling’s journey from rags to riches both bring home the point anything is possible.
What’s your favorite childhood book?
Trixie Beldon – The Red Trailer Mystery. I had all the Nancy Drew and Trixie Beldon Books growing up. Loved them all.
What do you want readers to come away with after they read A Demon’s Witch?
A feeling that anything is possible with love, family and friends.
What is your favorite quote?
“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, WOW what a ride!”

She wrote her first vampire romance at the age of eleven, to the chagrin of her mother and the delight of her friends. Tena finds stories in the strangest places, while camping, kayaking, or hiking in the mountains. So far, she’s only found one dead body (imagined not real) during a camping trip, turned it into an exciting paranormal romantic suspense that’s nearly complete.

Colorado is her home; shared with her husband, a brilliant Chow Chow, a spoiled parrot and a forty-year-old box turtle. She loves the adventure of a road trip. Together with her husband and their companion animals, they have logged thousands of miles in their RV visiting over 3/4 of the United States. The great northwest is still on the bucket list.
Any winter evening, you can find her curled up in front of a crackling fire with a good book, a mug of hot chocolate and a big bowl of popcorn.
