About N.J. Walters


Once upon a time N.J. had the idea that she would like to quit her job at the bookstore, sell everything she owned, leave her hometown, and write romance novels in a place where no one knew her. And she did. Two years later, she went back to the bookstore and her hometown and settled in for another seven years.


One day she gave notice at her job on a Friday morning. On Sunday afternoon, she received a tentative acceptance for her first erotic romance novel, Annabelle Lee, and life would never be the same.

An Interview with N.J. Walters
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio

HH: N.J., thank you for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book is Fabric of Fate and is part of your very popular Tapestries series. First, where did the idea for this phenomenal series come from?

NJ: It’s my pleasure to be here, Holly. Thanks for having me.

Back in 2005 I  knew I wanted to try my hand at writing a ménage a trois series, but I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do with it yet. I had a female character in mind for the lead, a full-figured, quiet woman named Christina Beaumont. About the same time I came across a book of medieval tapestries in a bookstore and my mind started playing the “what if” game. What if there was a tapestry that carried a woman away from her everyday life and took her somewhere totally different? That place became Javara, a medieval-like world with a shortage of women. I’d only planned on the one book, but quickly realized after I’d finished Christina’s Tapestry that I’d be writing about the Bakra brothers. I never expected this series to be so wildly popular with readers, but I’m so glad it is!

HH: What can you tell us about the books that came before this one?

NJ: Fabric of Fate is actually the sixth book in the series. In order they are: Christina’s Tapestry, Bakra Bride, Woven Dreams, Threads of Destiny, Embroidered Fantasies and Fabric of Fate. Each book follows the story of one woman and her warriors, but the rules start changing with Woven Dreams and continue to do so with Threads of Destiny and Embroidered Fantasies. Threads of Destiny even spawned a spinoff trilogy—Project Alpha.

It’s a complete joy to write this series. Each book can stand alone, but if you read them in order you’ll certainly recognize familiar faces.

HH: How does Fabric of Fate fit into the series?

NJ: Fabric of Fate is actually the sixth book in the series and we get to see a pair of brothers we briefly met back in Threads of Destiny. I had so many readers  ask me if I was going to write about the Dannon brothers, I knew I had to.

BLURB: Fabric of Fate

Audrey Brennan is married to her job as an ad executive. Her work environment is fast-paced, competitive and cutthroat. When a panic attack brought on by stress and overwork lands her in the hospital, she’s forced to examine her life choices. Before she can make any decisions, a beautiful tapestry filled with magic whisks her away to a strange world, where men compete sexually to win a woman.

In Javara, women are in short supply and brothers must share. Abrah Dannon has given up hope that either he or his brother Heroc will ever have a wife. But a wild storm brings an unexpected gift to his doorstep—a woman.

For the next three days, both brothers will use all the sensual skill at their disposal to seduce and pleasure Audrey so she will want to stay in Javara with them. But there’s more at stake than simply hot sex. Their hearts are hers for the taking if she’s willing to risk the chance.

HH: How did you bring their world so convincingly to life?

NJ: Thank you for saying so. The world of Javara has been evolving in my head for years, so it’s very real to me. I love the remoteness of the Dannon brothers small castle home, the way the people that populate it produce everything they need and the way they all depend on one another for survival. It’s very different from the modern world most of us live in where we barely know most of the people we come in contact with on a daily basis.

HH: What makes this series unique compared to what readers have seen to this point?

NJ: What makes any series unique, I think, is the combination of ideas. The Tapestries series is erotic fantasy at its best. The female character is plucked from her life when she is at a crossroads and shown a totally different world, one where there is no electricity or modern conveniences, but one where she can possibly find love and fulfillment. The catch, if she stays she has to give up the only world she’s ever known and leap into the unknown. And if that wasn’t nerve wracking enough, she has only three days to decide because once the tapestry returns a decision must be made or the tapestry will make it.

HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?

NJ: This year is all about the Legacy series. This werewolf/paranormal series will have three books releasing this year. Quinn’s Quest was released earlier this year, Finding Chrissten will be out on May 8th and Damek’s Redemption will be releasing later in the year. It’s very exciting.

And I’ve also contracted another Awakening Desires book with Ellora’s Cave. Look for Touch of Topaz later this year.

HH: How much of your life is spent on your writing career?

NJ: I’m a full time writer so all my time is spent on my writing career now. I love it! I try to write in the mornings and do all the emails, blogs, and the business part of things in the afternoon. I also take weekends off unless I’m in the middle of edits or a deadline. I’m in this for the long haul so I pace myself to keep from burning out. So far, so good.

HH: What does it mean to you to be a writer?

NJ: BEST. JOB. EVER.

Seriously though, what other job in the world could I actually get paid to sit in my sweatpants at my computer and write down all the conversations that go on in my head. It’s awesome. And the readers are the absolute best. So supportive and enthusiastic and kind.

HH: What would we find in your to be read pile right now?

NJ: I know most people will find this hard to believe but I don’t have a physical To Be Read pile. Having a bunch of books around I haven’t read makes me crazy. lol I usually buy two or three books at a time and work my way through them. When those are gone, I’ll buy more. That’s why ebooks are so great for me. I can buy a book at any time.

Just finished reading Lover Reborn by J.R. Ward, Tiger by Laurann Dohner and The Witness by Nora Roberts, all fabulous books and highly recommended.

HH: What plans do you have for the summer?

NJ: This summer I plan to enjoy as much sunshine as possible. We didn’t get much of that last year and had mainly rain and cold. Hoping to get out of the city for a few days but no definite plans yet. Of course, I’ll keep writing even as I’m enjoying the sunshine.

HH: Thank you!
