USA Today bestselling author Tawna Fenske globetrots for the sake of her romantic comedies
I was a hardcore globetrotter in my 20s and 30s.
I’ve watched giant tortoises hump in Barbados, been robbed at gunpoint in Venezuela, snorkeled in Fiji with manta rays the size of my dinner table, rode a flatulent camel into the Sahara at sunset, hiked the Swiss Alps, sustained an awkward jellyfish sting in Belize, climbed an ancient ruin in Mexico (and slid down on my butt when my fear of heights turned me into a blubbering baby) and accidentally got a free sensuous massage in Germany from a guy named Fritz (it’s a long story).
I’m sure it surprises no one to learn my travels often find their way into my romantic comedies, but it’s seldom in ways you’d expect. You probably won’t catch me choosing some exotic locale as the setting for one of my books, but you can bet I’m jotting down every zany experience as future book fodder.
Take my trip to New Zealand a couple years ago. When the hubby and I decided to try a healing mud bath in the town of Rotorua, I never thought a mud bath scene would eventually find its way into my erotic romantic comedy, The List. Truth be told, I didn’t know erotic romantic comedy was a thing, much less that I’d be writing one.
And okay, I’m not saying the hubby and I engaged in any illicit behavior while awaiting our post-mud bath massages, but if we had done that (hypothetically) the fact that the hypothetical massage therapist hypothetically walked in and hypothetically caught us in the hypothetical act, it would make for a pretty funny scene in the aforementioned erotic romantic comedy.
At any rate, The List just happens to be on sale this week for only 99-cents, so I’m hoping you’ll check it out while it’s cheap and easy.
And if you find yourself at a public bathhouse in Baden-Baden, Germany, tell Fritz I said hello.

It all starts with a list.
A sex list.
Cassie Michaels comes up with a list of naughty experiences to impress her sisters and finally convince them—and herself—she’s not just a boring soil scientist. Unfortunately, it also makes Cassie a liar if she doesn’t tick off at least some of the kinky exploits before her sister’s bachelorette party. Luckily, she’s found just the man to help her, starting with number four—sex with an anonymous stranger.
As the owner of a chain of computer shops, Simon Traxel doesn’t deal with mundane repairs, but when a brunette with killer green eyes and a list of sexploits frozen across her computer screen shows up at one of his shops, he’s ready to get a little hands on.
Simon’s more than willing to have some fun helping Cassie turn her made-up adventures into reality. Between steamy public romps that go hilariously awry, and sexy antics with kitchen utensils, getting through a to-do list has never been this much fun. But nearing the last few items means nearing the end of their time together, and Simon isn’t ready to let her go…
