Stormy the Weather Gnome interviews Tara Tyler, Author of Pop Travel

Stormy the Weather Gnome is a big fan of Science Fiction Thrillers. He’s got a huge library collection on his GNook.

So, I asked him to interview Tara Tyler about her new Sci-Fi Thriller, Pop Travel.

All yours, Stormy.


It’s about time you let me back onto the blog! I haven’t been on here since ... forever! I!

I have the great pleasure of hosting Tara Tyler! Her new book, Pop Travel, hit the e-shelves in July and I know you’re going to love it as much as you love me!

So, in order to get to know Tara, and her book, a little better let’s ask her … 7 Awesome Questions!

1. Does Pop Travel take place in our future?

2. What are your favorite traits about your main characters? And, do you share them?
J.L. Cooper used to be outgoing and fearless, but when his wife died, he turned sarcastic and cynical - I have a little bit of each trait.

3. If you could be a super-hero, which one would it be?
I don't want to be one, but since we're fantasizing, I'd love to be the Hulk's girlfriend! Ha!

4. What toppings do you put on your pizza?
Sausage, onions, green peppers, mushrooms. Mmm, pizza.

5. Are your characters based on real people?
Not in this book. They were in my first WIP, but that's another story...

6. If magic brought your characters to life what would you say to them first?
Let's make a movie!

7. Have you ever thought about dating a gnome?
Aww, aren't you cute! But, no. I'm not a beard kinda girl.

Tara, no matter how you answered #7 thank you for taking the time to be with me today!

Thank you so much for the unforgettable interview! It was an honor to meet you, Stormy. I'm a big fan! (but I guess most of your fans are big!)

Cooper thought he could get through
life without having to pop...
Pop Travel by Tara Tyler
A tale of deception and teleportation.

When a distraught client enters J.L. Cooper's small town detective agency ranting about a pop travel teleportation cover up, Cooper takes the case. He blames pop travel indirectly for his wife's death and would love to expose a glitch in it.

But the glitch turns out to be disintegrating travelers. And now, his client is dead, his secretary is missing, and a hitman is stalking him. Plus there's all the webcams watching his every move. So, Cooper has to find a way to expose the deadly flaw, while using pop travel to escape the maniacs covering it up, not to mention save a couple of tag-alongs he's not sure he can trust. No problem.
