Celebrating A New Release For Tricia Andersen

All day today at our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating Tricia Andersen's latest release in The Black Irish Series, her sinfully sweet series with Sweet Cravings Publishing!

THE TROUBLES by Tricia Andersen

The Black Irish Series Book Three

While Sloan and Abbey are in Las Vegas to celebrate Gordon and Mary’s wedding, a enemy from Sloan’s past nearly kills her. Sloan is forced to do the unthinkable – he files for divorce. He moves Sloan Enterprises to Switzerland far away from the woman he loves to save her.

Three years pass. When Sloan invites Robert to Switzerland to celebrate his fortieth birthday, he learns shocking news – Robert is living with Abbey. Refusing to lose Abbey, Sloan relocates the company to Minneapolis, Minnesota where Abbey is living and makes her the Chief Operating Officer. He fights against his desire for her as he contends with her two new beaus, his own new girlfriend, her hostile family and Amelia, his four-year-old daughter.

When his enemy makes another attempt on Abbey’s life, will Sloan be able to save her – or is this a war he just can’t win?


Hi! My name is Tricia Andersen. Trish for short. But not Trisha. I know – complicated. And a little crazy.

I have wanted to be a writer since I was a child. I used to make my grade school teacher read every little thing I wrote. I got my love of writing from my Mom. I still think she is the best writer I’ve ever read.

I published my first book independently, a children’s book named The Peculiar Princess in May 2011, then followed it with two more children’s books, The Finicky Fairy and My Sunday School Teacher Tells Me.

I began writing romance shortly after I published Peculiar. I signed my first ever contract with Secret Cravings Publishing for my Black Irish series the day after Christmas 2012 (what a Christmas gift!!) Black Irish was released on May 8, 2013. It was followed by Queen of Savon released on June 12, 2013. Heartland, the second of the Black Irish series, released August 6, 2013. The Troubles, the third in the Black Irish series, will release in November 2013. I have a free serial novel releasing every Sunday on the Sweet Cravings website.

I've also taken a shot as a radio deejay with Writer's Online Network. I co-host the radio program Freshly Booked with my close friend, Heidi. You can hear us 8:00 CST on Blog Talk Radio as we interview authors new to the publishing world.

I have loved every second of being a writer. It is an incredible experience I have been blessed with.

I am a Midwestern girl, married to my best friend, Brian, and have three wonderful children – Jake, Jon and Alexandra.

    1. Thank you so much for having me!

      The Black Irish Series tells the ongoing relationship between Sloan O'Riley, the sexy, dominating, alpha male ex-IRA bomber-turned-billionairre and Abbey O'Riley, the soft, sweet, beautiful children's author from Iowa. Each book tells a little more about their marriage, how two so very different people fit so well together despite the odds.

      I am planning 6-7 books in this series. As of right now I'm not planning to give any of their characters their own book. But that can always change. When my characters want something they usually get their way.

      Like Abbey, I am also from Iowa. I spend my time with my husband, Brian, who has been so supportive if me. We have three kids, Jake, Jon and Ali. When I'm not writing, I chase my children around to their activities (it's currently Robotics season in our house). I love, love, LOVE to kickbox. I also co-host a radio show for Blog Talk Radio, Freshly Booked, on Wednesday nights at 8:00 pm CST. And I am on the staff of Cravings, Secret Cravings Publishing's new e-zine.

      I have two new books coming out in the next couple months. Breaking The Cycle, a special love/sports/contemporary romance comes out in January and The Thirteenth Knight, a medieval/fantasy novella, comes out in February.

      Thank you again for having me!! <3<3
