An Interview with Tula Neal and a Contest!

Please welcome Tula Neal to my blog today!

Alisha: Tell us about the hero and heroine in your latest release.

Tula: In The Mermaid’s Mission which was released last year by New Concepts Publishing, Antalya is a mermaid princess who has been sent as Gift Prize to a developer whose resort threatens the merpeople’s way of life because of its destructiveness of the environment. Gregory, the developer, grew up poor and has made good but he still feels he has to prove himself to his fellow islanders and that’s what his development is all about. What’s more he’s never heard of merpeople so when Antalya approaches him it’s a double whammy but he’s instantly attracted to her and wants to do the right thing.

Alisha: I love a good mermaid tale! This sounds wonderful! If you were granted three wishes by a genie, what would they be?

Tula: I’d like Fortunatus’s purse which is always full so I can indulge my love of travel and books, I’d love to be immortal, and I’d love to be able to grant three similar wishes to the people I love.

Alisha: Great wishes! If you could go anywhere to tomorrow, where would you go?

Tula: Spain. I love that country! I love the people, the wines, the landscape, everything.

Alisha: I've always wanted to go to Spain. If you could see anyone tomorrow (dead or alive), who would it be?

Tula: My mother. She died some years ago, before we really had a chance to get to know each other as two adults which is one of the great regrets of my life.

Alisha: If you could choose six people to spend one week on a desert island, who would it be and why?

Tula: I’d take two of my good friends and then I’d take a writer and then two historical figures like Ann Boleyn and Julius Casear – should not be a single boring minute!

Alisha: If you had one day to spoil yourself, what would you do?

Tula: Truly spoiling myself would actually take more like one month – a day is much too short! But, if I couldn’t have my druthers, then I’d spend half the day at a spa getting wrapped and massaged and pedicured and the rest in a hammock reading by the sea shore. Bliss!

Alisha: What’s the sexiest thing a man has ever done for you or said to you or both?

Tula: Left voicemails of himself reading love poetry on my phone after a quarrel.

Alisha: Very romantic!
