Who is TF Walsh?
Thanks for having me on your blog today. 🙂
My novels are about the paranormal and romance, and most importantly, how a couple overcomes obstacles for love.
I was born in Romania and moved to Australia with my family at the age of eight. My dad has always loved writing and is quite well known in Romania, so I guess from an early age I started to show interest in writing. Sure, they were only poems or lyrics, but it was a start It was only when I finished university that I considered trying to write stories. Fast forward many years later, when I was home sick from work that I started my first novel, and no looking back from there. Aside from writing, I’m a huge baking fan with snickerdoodles being my all time favorite cookies. I live with hubby and two gorgeous kitties.
5 Things You Didn’t Know About Me:
• I did gymnastics for eight years. For eight years I did gymnastics when I was young and most of those years were while we lived in Romania. During our last year in the country, just before we moved to Australia where my dad was, I had won a championship. Because of the complication with the way my father had ‘left’ Romania (communist during this time), the officials refused to award me any medals or acknowledgment of a win.
• Even though I’ve lived in Australia most of my life, I still have a slight accent. Most people’s first guess is that I’m from South Africa.
• I did a double university degree in marketing and accounting, yet I’ve never done any bookkeeping or accounting work in my life.
• I’m a self-trained food photographer.
• When I’m not working or writing, I’m a huge lover of baking, so you’ll find me in the kitchen, probably whipping up a batch of snickerdoodle cookies.
So, why do I write about the paranormal?
I grew up watching horror stories, in particular, monster ones. My favorites were the vampire and werewolf stories. Because I wanted to base my book in Romania, I wanted to show the country had legends beyond Dracula, so I went with my next favorite topic. Plus, what I love about werewolves is their hidden nature. Anyone could be a werewolf hiding in his or her human guise. Whether a person’s lycanthropy is beyond their control, or whether they maintain their control, when they change, they are equally frightening. Traditionally stories of werewolves were used to inspire fear, but they have since been romanticised in popular culture. In the Wulfkin Legacy, I wanted to use both of these sides of the werewolf.
My favorite subject of paranormal are Cryptids. Cryptids are any form of animal or creature that is either extinct or has not had its existence confirmed. Including extinct creatures like dinosaurs alongside creatures like Bigfoots, the Loch Ness Monster and werewolves is a telling definition for me. Just as many people believe that some species of recently extinct animals like Tasmanian Tiger may still be alive in hidden pockets of forest, many others believe that Sasquach may by hiding in remote areas of wilderness.
Ghosts, spirits and demons are another subject of the paranormal that fascinates me. More and more science and pseudo-science is being directed to investigating this area of the paranormal. And increased interest from pop culture has seen more television and other media devoted to these investigations as well. Another subject of paranormal, Aliens, just because there is no evidence doesn’t mean that they don’t exist. Just that we still haven’t found evidence.
