Good morning! I’d like to start off by thanking Tina for inviting me today, and to say Hi! I’m Mina, and I write…well, pretty much anything. It depends where my current whimsy takes me. However, a lot of these flights of fancy don’t make it to the printed or ‘e’page. Thankfully. They’re all safely locked up so you needn’t worry ;)
As a rule I tend to write paranormal and sci-fi romance. Both genres hold a distinct fascination for me, they’re like a passport to an exotic trip, a new world held between the pages that I can indulge myself in for a few hours. All without going anywhere! Since I hate (read loathe and detest) to travel, it’s a win-win situation.
I particularly like writing sci-fi though. Why? Well, that one’s easy to answer. I’m a geek, and a trekkie. My teenage years were spent reading Anne McCaffrey, Douglas Hill, Joe Haldeman and any other sci-fi book I could get my hands on and even now, I love space opera type films. Anything with an empire or space-marines, and I’m hooked! (Just don’t ask me my opinion on the Starship Troopers films, please. Not unless you want to reduce me to tears)
Writing sci fi is my chance to slip into one of those worlds, build an empire and create the men and women who shape it. Keliana and Jareth from Harem Mistress are one such couple, players in the cast of the world of the Imperial Princes.
My name is Mina, and it’s been three hours, fourteen minutes since I last wrote sci-fi…best get back to it, eh? ;)
Illicit love, burning hot sex...
Keliana is an imperial harem mistress, but that doesn't stop Jareth Nikolai from wanting her. A colonel in the imperial fleet and the prince's right hand man, Jareth has earned his reputation as a loyal, stone-cold soldier, but thoughts of Keliana heat his blood to boiling--even though she's the property of his prince.
Keliana knows it's forbidden, but she can't get the handsome colonel of out of her mind, nor can she ignore her dreams of one day loving him openly as a free woman. When she's called before her prince and given to Nikolai as a gift, she thinks her dreams have finally come true. Until Nikolai is raised to prince and cannot marry his harem mistress.
And deep within the shadows, enemy machinations work to keep them apart forever...

Mina Carter was born and raised in Middle Earth (otherwise known as the Midlands, England). After a slew of careers ranging from logistics to land-surveying she can now be found in the wilds of Leicestershire with her husband and young daughter…the true boss of the family.
Suffering the curse of eternal curiosity Mina never tires of learning new skills which has led to Aromatherapy, Corsetry, Chain-maille making, Welding, Canoeing, Shooting, and pole-dancing to name but a few.
A full time author and cover artist, Mina can usually be found hunched over a keyboard or graphics tablet, frantically trying to get the images and words in her head out and onto the screen before they drive her mad. She's addicted to coffee and Nutella on toast.
Where to find Mina...
