Author Interview with Colleen Houck & TIGER'S DREAM #Giveaway!

It’s kind of sorta totally amazing, y’all, that I get to bring to you an interview with Colleen Houck, author of the newly released Tiger’s Dream! I fell in love with the Tiger’s Curse saga way back when it first released and have been anticipating the final book for years so not only am I sharing this interview but a GIVEAWAY for copies of the book too!

Are you ready?!

About Colleen Houck

New York Times Bestselling author Colleen Houck is a lifelong reader whose literary interests include action, adventure, paranormal, science fiction, and romance. When she’s not busy writing, she likes to spend time chatting on the phone with one of her six siblings, watching plays, and shopping online. Colleen has lived in Arizona, Idaho, Utah, California, and North Carolina and is now permanently settled in Salem, Oregon with her husband and a huge assortment of plush tigers.


All About Colleen

You wrote a book! That’s pretty awesome. Why don’t you tell us a bit about what inspired Tiger’s Dream and the rest of the Tiger’s Curse series?

The tiger series was inspired by Beauty and the Beast. I wanted a beast as my hero and threw out the idea of a bear, a lion, or a bird and chose a tiger. The tiger led me to India and Indian mythology and then the series was born!

Walk us through a day in the life of Colleen Houck.

My life is pretty boring actually. My hubby works from home most days too so we get to spend a lot of time together. The morning is spent on email, social media, and prepping for events and the afternoon is reserved for writing. When I’m doing really well, I manage to finish the laundry, prep for dinner, and do some exercise too.

I know asking someone’s all-time favorite book is a loaded question so what’s your current favorite read?

I read a lot. There’s always a book by my bed but I listen to a lot of audiobooks as well. Right now I’m listening to The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton and I love it! My new favorite is always the one I’m reading.

Alright, the ultimate question: why should we read your book?

Tiger’s Dream is like the key to the whole series. If you don’t read this one, you won’t truly understand the curse. This book turns the curse on it’s head and is the, “Luke, I am your father,” moment of the series. SO many secrets and all of them are revealed in the pages.


Fun Stuff!

Describe yourself in 3 words.

Organized, Generous, Kind

What is your most embarrassing memory?

Catching my high heel on a stair and tumbling all the way down ending with a bruised tailbone and my skirt over my head.

Your characters are sent into the Hunger Games. Who wins?


You just won America’s Got Talent. What’s your talent?

Probably translating a song into American Sign Language

Coffee or tea?


Best ice cream flavor ever?

Tillamook Mudslide

What is one piece of advice you would tell everyone?

Never give up on your dreams but stop dreaming and go to work.


A HUGE thank-you to Colleen for answering a few questions! Y’all can check out Tiger’s Dream below and don’t forget to read up on the previous books in the series if you haven’t already (hint: they’re great reads)!

A tiger left behind.

A goddess in need of an ally.

Stranded in a time and place he never wished for, Kishan Rajaram must carry out his destiny of assisting the beautiful yet extremely irritable goddess Durga. This daunting task is not made easy by the fact that he must also face the truth about the girl he loves and the brother who stole her away.

When the wily shaman Phet appears and tells Kishan that Kelsey needs him, he jumps at the chance to see her again. In his efforts to save her, Kishan discovers that the curse he thought was over is just beginning. As time unravels around him, Kishan realizes that the fates of all those he holds dear lie in hands.

The goddess’s power hangs in the balance. Kishan has no choice but to sacrifice the unthinkable to fight the dark forces swirling around the woman he’s charged to protect. As he does, he discovers that love and loyalty create their own magic and accepts that he must decide his destiny once and for all.
