To all my lovely readers out there. Remember, no matter what your dreams are (naughty or not), you have everything you need to make them come true.
I have been writing short stories and poems since a young age, but my ultimate goal was creating a novel. Or a series, rather. Now, with my fourth novel on its way, and another few lined up, I think I can say that it came true - but this only fuels my desire to write more. After all, we are allowed to dream the same dream (over and over again) - and that's exactly what I'm planning to do :)
I enjoy helping people in any way possible, and I really hope that my books will prove to be inspirational in a way. Whether readers are looking for a swift (and steamy) erotic story, or a paranormal romance, I want them to associate themselves with my characters and realize stuff about themselves in the process. Yes, even the bad things. Because, in life, there is no black and white, only colors. Therefore, I don't think any of my characters are either good or bad, but rather a little bit of both. Aren't we all?
Well, if you never had guilty thoughts, never had any self-confidence issues, or if you never wanted something (or someone ) who belonged to someone else, then probably my books won't be for you. But, who knows, I might be able to show you a different perspective. I like to experiment with different genres, and new concepts and ideas.
I really enjoy learning as much as I can about people, what makes them tick (and live, laugh, cry, and sigh). In fact, I think our World (and those beyond) are so diverse, ten thousand lifetimes wouldn't be enough to explore it all. But one thing I truly believe in: those who belong in your life will find a way there. Therefore my stories are usually based on chance encounters and ordinary events that take an unexpected turn.
Like a blind date on Valentine's day, or a haircut, or a new job. Who says you can't meet someone 'accidentally' while going to the hairdresser, someone you lost contact with 500 years ago? Trust me, you can. You just need to brace every day (and every book) with open eyes - and an open heart.
Just remember: my stories are all about you, and you alone. If they capture your attention (and your heart), then I've done my 'job'. I regularly try to release new content, both on Amazon and my blog. Please feel free to have a look, and sign up to my newsletter. And, just so you know: I care about your opinion, very much so. Whether you liked my work or you didn't, I would be honored if you let me know what it meant for you. It would mean the world to me!
Once upon a time, in an era of mass production, media and all, there lived a little girl who still believed in fairy tales, that the good must defeat evil. Hence she refused to grow up, helping people discover themselves and the true meaning of values on her way. Values that are long forgotten. Her task hasn't been easy, but she enjoys the process. And she doesn't want to stop there. She wants to create something that tells the story. A story that everyone can relate to. A story that helps people find out who they really are, where they really belong. And most importantly: what truly matters. So she started to write it all down. And she wouldn't stop until it's complete. If it will ever be complete...
It all started with a dream...
Timea Tokes is a self-published author of paranormal romance and erotica. She was born in Hungary in 1987, and has been writing since a very young age. Although her mother tongue is Hungarian, her passion for books, writing and reading in English started when she was 10. Dracula was one of the first books that she read in its original form, and one that has had a huge impact on her relationship to the supernatural. She also has great interest in the medieval times. It is no surprise that her first series is paranormal romance, which is based on a mixture of dreams and reality, where she combines a medieval setting (dreams) with the present. In fact, it all started with a dream for her, quite literally, as the original idea for her story came from a recurring dream that she had when she was 16.
Apart from paranormal romance, she has written many poems, both in English and Hungarian, as well as short stories, including steamy erotica. Writing has always been her most treasured dream, as well as helping others achieve their own dreams. As she put it: “I ultimately want all women to see a part of themselves in Lia (the protagonist of Her First Secret). We all dream of a knight galloping in on a white horse, and my book will compel readers to weight up how much of life is fate, and how much of our destiny we create for ourselves.”
