Sharing her Five Photos with me today is writer Tanith Davenport, author of a multitude of erotica novels, horror movie fan, lover of rock concerts, and owner of two delinquent cats. I love getting a sneak peek into my guests’ lives through their photographs, and today has been no exception. These pictures paint a picture of a very interesting character indeed, and I absolutely love that wedding outfit!
My wedding photo
This is my favourite wedding photo, primarily because the camera hates me but it actually came out very well! My husband and I have been together for eighteen years and met in the traditional studenty way – in the student union bar at Leeds Beckett University. It was a standing joke at our wedding that, since I’d gone for a gown from a studio that did mostly pagan weddings, Mark’s suit cost more than my dress.
An owl experience
This was a birthday present from my mother. My husband is a keen wildlife photographer and I’ve always loved birds in general, so a visit to a bird sanctuary to meet the owls was a perfect gift. These two barn owls were very fond of diving for food and very much enjoyed having their heads stroked.
New York City
I insisted on having this shot taken when we went to New York City the first time, as I love stage musicals and kept singing “Give my regards to Broadway, remember me to Herald Square!” New York is an amazing place, but my favourite part was definitely Times Square. I could have stood there watching the screens all day.
Scarborough is one of my favourite places to visit – we’ve stayed there several times, including for our anniversary just after the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. This photo was taken during the Scarborough Light Parade, where motorbikes parade down the streets followed by a firework display.
My friends Nici and Oscar own a bar in Cala D’Or, Majorca, and their main draw (apart from enormous cocktails) is two parrots called Tutti and Frutti. This was the first time I got one of them to pose on my shoulder, although he did try to eat my hair. We visit Cala D’Or every year, it being – among other things – the place where my husband proposed, and we always make sure to visit the bar to see our friends and the parrots.
Thank you, Tanith, for sharing your photographs with us. I have to say, I thought your wedding dress was absolutely beautiful, and you looked stunning!

WATCH THE SKIES
Alien hunter Aster is frustrated in more ways than one. Her team haven’t had a proper encounter in months, and her cute teammate Wade is never going to see her that way – and no other man would let a woman like Aster take charge in a relationship anyway.
Until one night, out in the woods, when the team are engulfed in a white light – and overwhelmed with desire like they’ve never known. Suddenly Aster sees a new side to Wade, one that will let her give her alpha tendencies free rein…
But as the creatures they met return again and again, Aster begins to wonder what they really want – to see her and Wade together, or something more sinister?
