Welcome Author the Day~ Tina Hammond !

Is it Hump day already ?? Guess so ! So here's our AOD for today ! 
Tina Hammond also known as T.Hammond : 

T. Hammond lives in Spokane, WA with her goofy, neurotic, long-coat German shepherd, Dexter; he's noble and brave, until someone turns on the microwave, then she has 100lbs of quivering dog trying to hide behind her chair or bury his head under a pillow (Little known fact: a 100lb German Shepherd CAN fit under a coffee table).

Interests/ Hobby’s: I love to read, I write constantly (manuals, books, letters, etc), do crafty things by hand (sewing, tatting, knitting), I draw nudes and portraits in a style called pointillism (using felt pens to make dots to form a picture), I used to own a fish store, so I am very knowledgeable about freshwater fish and raise some of the more difficult to find in my geographical area.
I write the Team Red series. The books are hard to classify by genre, but I suppose you could call them LOL Paranormal Romance. There are two versions of the Team Red series mild (the Red series) and Extra spicy (the Blind series). The Team  Red books follow the story of Teresa, a woman blinded in an accident, that finds she can read her service dog, Red's, thoughts. Red is sarcastic and has great deductive reasoning skills that they find can benefit the local Police Department. The romance angle comes in the form of two sexy guys that decide to compete (we are talking competitive) for her affections. The men are not above hijacking each others' dates and it makes for some great laughs.

To separate the Adult and the less explicit versions, I decided to issue Red Rover (PG13-ish) and Blind Seduction (explicit content) to accommodate the interest of younger readers that wanted to read about the
'talking dog'. The

The “Blind” series is written first with protagonists in their late twenties to late thirties, then ages are modified and subtle changes made to each story to tone down adult themes and language, making them a new story, with obvious mirrored elements of the original. The Red Rover Edition is not meant to be an original work, it is meant to be a modified work of its original Blind counterpart. I WILL NOT WRITE TWO DISTINCTLY SEPARATE STORIES-- the "Red" series will always be a modified version of the "Blind" series. 
So here's the scoop:

Team Red ‘Blind’ series:
Blind Seduction, Book 1 (originally issued as Red Rover)
Color Blind, Book 2 (coming May 2013)

Team Red ‘Red’ Series:
Red Rover – Special Edition, Book1
Red Zone, Book 2 (coming June 2013

T's stalker links ! :

Heart pounding, Teresa woke abruptly. It is still dark. Her mind cleared- it is always dark now. Within a heartbeat, an accident changed Teresa’s life, took her sight, and left her scarred.

Red is a typical German shepherd, well, except for the whole talking-in-Teresa’s-head thing. He’s sassy and opinionated, and pretty handsome, even if he does say so himself.

If a smart-alec dog isn’t enough, Sebastian and his friend David came to town and both have set their sights on Teresa. Neither of the sexy guys are above using military tactics to secure their target- and so begins the Siege.

And, don’t forget to consider the implications of a talking dog… the police department certainly has.

This SPECIAL EDITION contains some adult situations and mild swearing, but not too much because the dog repeats everything. If it were a movie it would probably be rated as PG-13. Storyline and protagonist ages are changed from original version
