"Not only is Tirza, an author of both children's and adults books, she is also a Healer, a Medium, a Tarot Reader, A Blogger, an Academic Genius, a Mum, and available for voice overs, she also runs a couple of Facebook groups and still finds time to have fun. Tirza has a great sense of humour, she is also very thoughtful and we are so happy that she shares her knowledge with us and makes us laugh. She is a real pleasure to know. Her pages and her website, are jam packed with information and facts."

All Things Bright & Spiritual, Online Magazine

"Tirza’s poetry takes you on an adventure deep into the imagination and far beyond, stirring life back into emotions long ignored, be it the child within or the unveiling of your Goddess. Tirza’s many talents are richly steeped in authenticity, as she lives all that she expresses in so many forms. Her words, be they written or spoken, flow directly from her divine soul through her unconditional heart, her love shining upon the paths of many in gentle grace held within the love she expresses in purity.… because Tirza is love!"

SJC-Arohanui, Spiritual Poet

"Hi my name is Jo & I am moved to say a few words about my friend Tirza. I have known her only in the cyber world. From the first day I saw her beautiful face & read her beautiful poetry I was hooked. Tirza dear, you are beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside. I may be 70 years young but I can still be moved & inspired by beauty of soul & mind. Your words have touched a place deep in me & you inspire me to see life through different eyes. You have been given a special gift & you are a gift in itself to the world. The legacy you are creating & will one day leave behind is truly wonderful. I wish you all the luck in the world with your books & I hope to continue to read your beautiful poetry for many years to come. Thank you from my heart for your friendship & caring. May all you believe in & hold dear always surround you with love & guidance. Ever onwards & upwards my dear friend, you are wonderful & we who have the honour of knowing you are indeed blessed." Support & love always."

Jo, Reader

"Tirza's stories of her experiences bring with them her delight of discovery on her journey of life and enlightenment. Her words are captivating, easily drawing in the reader to readily share her thoughts, feelings and the epiphanies that accompany each adventure. Whether it is reading one of her articles or poems - one is reminded of the joy of enlightenment, and the wonder that comes with the dawning of understanding."

Julia McDermott, Reader

"I have read a few of your books, most articles, poems and blogs – and so far, I have not read anything boring that originated from your pen. I love your writing!"

Yasmin, Reader

"Tirza Schaefer is a whimsical, spiritual and free-spirited individual with a playful side that shows up in her creations as an author and voice over artist. I have known Tirza for a few years now and she has an awesome personality to go with her great voice and writing skills and in particular in her specialty, erotic novels.

As an author, Tirza is known for painting vivid erotic images in the mind. Erotica that's for an audience who like their novels no holds barred. A feast to true fans of erotica will like Born To Be Wild and a host of others.

Tirza is also very direct and forthcoming with her feelings. We had quite a few interesting conversations over the years and I must say she has presented interesting advice and thoughts on issues I might have. She sees beyond the surface and indeed offers succulent food for thought.

As a voice over artist she presents emotional and colorful visuals in her eloquent but sensual British Accent. As a poetess, Tirza also inspires and uplifts the soul with her spiritual poetry such as Rising of Spirits and others.

In essence, these are some of the qualities rolled together that make her an exceptional author and voice over artist. Strap on your seat belt and be ready for the most off the planet ride of your life."

Craig "Sounda" Brown, Music & Movie Soundtrack Producer, L.A.

"Tirza is a bright star. No matter what, her energy is very inspiring for everyone and she is really loveable! Her beautiful personality reflects on her work. Enlightened words and wandering poems bring me joy every time I read them! I want to thank her for being in my life and giving me such positive emotions!"

Amazon Reader

Soul moving and spirit melting! My Spirit Song: A Spiritual Evolution In Poetic Expression by Tirza Schaefer is exactly what the title says: a beautiful song of a joyous spirit, growing into an ever more enlightened, peaceful and happy awareness of life and the oneness that we all are. This book is as inspirational and encouraging as it is deeply personal and autobiographic. An emotional stripping down to the core of Schaefer's being, this book is a testimony to her true nature of abundant and all-encompassing love and empathy. Easily the most beautiful spiritual poetry book I have ever read!

A Magical Family Holiday: A Trip Into The Eifel MountainsI wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this book, but as I myself have travelled the picturesque area of the Eifel’s Mosel Valley and surrounding places, as well as having read the author’s book “Poetry From The Heart” which I loved exceedingly, I decided to purchase this book as well. Upon reading, I fell in love with the Eifel all over again, but not only that. I was laughing at the first chapter featuring the most charming dialogue between a cow and a little girl, dove into the magical fairy kingdom of an enchanted house and garden, and re-lived the timewarp of being in ancient fairytale castles all over again. The point of view from which Tirza Schaefer describes her experiences and sightseeing is unique and heart-touching. Her autobiographical narrative makes you wonder at the richness and depth of her perceptions and the expression is drawing you ever deeper into a family of three generations which is as endearing as it is a wonderful example of how children’s minds work, how to best raise them to pay homage to their imaginative and creative abilities, as it is showing you a different approach to dealing with little everyday occurrences. The author thinks outside the box. I doubt, there are any boxes at all in her worldview and perception of reality. This book is a gem, and not only for people wishing to travel to that region or those having an interest in literature for and about families and children. It is one of a kind, a jewel in the often drab world of travel reports. But I’m boxing that which cannot be put into a box! Read for yourself and prepare to never look at the world quite the same way as you have before!

Kain, Amazon Reader

A Magical Family Holiday: A Trip Into The Eifel Mountains. Just brilliant! Excellent Work. I love this book. The writer is unique and her expressions are beautiful. I love how she shares her story in a diary form. Just Brilliant.​

How Picasso Makes You A GeniusWhat a delightful, enchanting book and so empowering! This is so lovely and with a great message that speaks to the heart of any child and even us adults. This is beautifully written and offers a perspective on Picasso that it never occurred to me. Love it!

Amazon Reader

How Picasso Makes You A Genius. Awesome! That is by far the best spiritual book for children I've ever come across. And a book explaining things for children so that they make sense! Has opened my adult eyes as well!

Elizabeth Bennett, Amazon Reader

How Picasso Makes You A Genius. Very good read my 8yo son reads it to me before bed and it encourages him to read more and more 😊

Amazon Reader

Band of Brothers. Tirza creates every girl’s dream to have five hunky heroes adoring her. But this beautiful poet knows what is only superficial and what runs deeper, or at least in her, because the one man out of the five she is serious about, is the one who gives her the cold treatment, or rather, the angry one. Until she finally comes out with the truth about her feelings and then things happen really fast. Such is Vegas, you don’t leave anything on a slow cooker there, and from deployment to national TV, events unfold at a rapid pace. Not only for the two lead characters, Raven and Drew. Could not put it down the flow is great!

Author Jeffrey W. Johnson, Amazon Reader

Band of Brothers. Raven is a European poet and wins a prize at a convention in Las Vegas where she meets five hot US Marines heroes who will at first make you beliee that the story might unfold into a ménage à cinque. However, this is not so, because Raven only wants one of the team, the angry captain who is not interested in her at all. Until he is. And then, oh my God, things happen! What I love about this book is its complexity. From steamy scenes to philosophical poetry and a very sensitive and deeply caring approach to military personell suffering from PTSD, this book offers way and beyond more than an ordinary romance novel would. Impressive and beautiful!

Elizabeth Bennett, Amazon Reader

"How wonderful this book, Balcony Above The Sea, dear Tirza. You are a marvel and an inspiration to me!"

Carolina, Poet

Balcony Above The SeaI’ve seen the author has a lot of novels with US military men, but also others. I’d be curious to find out how she got the idea to suddenly come up with a Bulgarian love story. Be that as it may, this story is sweet, cute, sexy, hot, you learn about an author’s work and Bulgarian culture, as well as LGBT rights and the history of such a foundation that helps gay kids to come out and deal with the often emotionally distressing reactions of family and friends in a traditional society. You also learn about their joy of life, their artistic side and the humor of old men and young women. I love how Tirza Schaefer always weaves so much other information into her romantic stories and totally gets away with it. It’s still all light-hearted – and very hot – entertainment! Tirza is a budding author very well done.
Author Jeffrey W. Johnson, Amazon Reader

You think this book is full of heroic men doing heroic deeds – and they do – BUT(!!!) at the center of it all is a woman who grows into heroism in spite of her not being some super hero to start with and who shows not only enormous courage in physical danger, but also develops an inner strength that is dynamic and breathtaking. Badass Heroes has many interesting, exciting and surprising twists and turn, from Tequila to bureaucracy, from dolphins to mountains. An epic journey! Love it!!!

Amazon Reader

Badass Heroes. Looks like there is a happy end right at the beginning. Tirza created a very highly visible character Luis, this badass Marine. All full of himself, larger than life, thinking he’s God’s gift to womanhood and basically full of you-know-what. Or so Ricarda thinks. That is until he actually takes action and puts money where his mouth is. She finds, he didn’t promise too much and almost against her will, she comes to respect him for the man he is and very quickly, this is followed by deeper feelings. Looks like there is a happy end right at the beginning, if only… A shootout, a run from a small island with a Seal Luis has sent to protect Ricarda, they go swimming with dolphins, make their way from Italy through the Alps to Switzerland and when Ricarda finally finds out the truth, she must decide between honor and love. Fast-paced, hot and crazy! Love it!

Author Jeffrey W. Johnson, Amazon Reader

This book is hilarious, exciting, contradictory and far from being PC (politically correct), and yet, it works! Jada is a left-wing intellectual, pacifist hippie university lecturer teaching philosophy with a spiritual emphasis and Kyle is a US Marine SpecOps officer that happen to live temporarily under the same roof. Jada is the aggressive, embittered and angry one, Kyle keeps his cool and even trumps Jada’s colleagues in chivalry. There are adventure, funny scenes that make you laugh tears and a fast-paced storyline that is as entertaining as it is educational in terms of admonishing us not to think in stereotypes because those who seemingly live very opposing lives to ourselves sometimes have more in common with us than the people who belong to our group, community or tribe. It is as much as love story as it is a comedy with an undercurrent of reminding us not to cast that first stone… This is Tirza Schaefer’s most extensive work thus far and she excelled in her writing and content alike, her novels all being complex and surprising each time. I cannot recommend Opposites Attract highly enough. A brilliant read!

Amazon Reader

Opposites Attract. Oh, maaaannn, have two people ever taken their time to finally get together. Then again, Harry and Sally were worse perhaps, but not nearly as arousing! The book starts with two people, Jada and Kyle, being thrown together at a friend’s place under one roof and spending a week of hating and nearly throwing themselves at each other with passion. This book makes for some explosive content and you would think, they never meet again as neither one dares to contact the other, in spite of fending off a drunk, an ultra-spiritual (white) Native American shaman (who cares about colour, the New Agers are all One, anyway), a pair of plastic boobs (attached to a rather brainless specimen of the human race) - and each other. But when they meet again and Kyle saves Jada’s life in earnest from a sociopathic philosophy lecturer, the two get closer at last. But not THAT close! It takes a fake engagement, a tirade of jealousy and a move across the country to get the two together again just when they’d thought they’d finally had each other, but didn’t. This is possibly the best and most adventurous and hilarious way to prove that we often have more in common with those we are seemingly so very different from than with the people closest to us. And we learn all that with a lot of heat and a few good laughs on the way. Excuse me while I write a mail to Tirza Schaefer to ask if Kyle has a brother… Read it yourself, but be sure you are prepared for all eventualities!

Kain, Amazon Reader

Opposites Attract. This book is hilarious and serious all at once, even though it doesn’t lack the sizzle that makes for a great romance. Schaefer uses two protagonists and turns their role labels around. The military man is the peaceful, reasonable one and the left wing intellectual philosophy lecturer with hippie tendencies the aggressive, intolerant person. This makes for a dynamic that is as unusual as it is explosive. And when the two finally get each other, Disney-style fireworks are lame in comparison! On the side, you get a little education in philosophy and art without it being boring or didactic. Very, very cool book!

An action packed ride on the wild side. Born To Be Wild is an action packed and exciting book from start to finish. I actually read the whole book in one sitting as once I got a few pages in I couldn't put it down. I really liked how the author has woven quite a bit of humour into the story and how well written each character was, especially Carry and Dan who at first appeared a bit incompatible but you see how well they work together very quickly in the story and really root for them throughout. Although the erotic scenes were excellent and very well written I liked how they were not the sole focus of the story and there was a solid plot behind it with plenty going on. Overall an excellent adult book that is very hard to put down once you start. I will definitely be reading more by Tirza Schaefer.
Michael Naylor, Amazon Reader

A sex-filled thrill ride. Born To Be Wild is an erotic romance story between lovers Carry and Dan. They meet due to Carry's car breaking down along the highway and she flags down this good looking man on a Harley. She's not too sure if she did the right though after seeing how massive he is and all the tattoos he proudly wears, but he helps her out of a bad situation and introduces her to his biker friends. He calls her "his woman" and she's not really comfortable with that at first, but she warms up to the idea of being with him and soon discovers how much she likes him! But Dan is keeping something from Carry ... Will she flee or stay when she discovers his secret? Read the story to find out! A very good read!
Kevin Lintner, Amazon Reader

Born To Be Wild. This book is WILD!!! And I think, the title is less an homage to the song and the movie Easy Rider and more to her own beautifully wicked, sexy, naughty, beautiful, loving, deliciously dirty, wild and free spirit. This is how I feel about it at least after reading this book. I was in awe with Tirza Schaefer’s works before, but she managed to top it yet again. The pretty little florist and the wild tattooed biker. And things are – how could it be any different – not what they seem at first. Doesn’t mean that biker Dan isn’t giving Carry the hots to the point she finally comes on to him and has a wild ride in the very first night, because he does. And then there are the merry mechanics. OMG!!! I laughed tears!!! You HAVE to read this book to meet Bear – sorry – Mr. Bear. He’s like a cross between a giant and Paddington perhaps. I’m not sure whether Schaefer had the British children’s classic in mind, but I wouldn’t be surprised at all, given her amazing creativity if she had taken Paddington and crossed him with a big, burly Southern mechanic who is perhaps a little simple-minded, but carries his heart in the right place and a torch for Miss Carry, or Mrs. Dan, as he calls her alternately. And the fact that the hottest scene is at a wedding which is that of Dan’s closest friends Ranger and Donna on their farm is perhaps a little unusual, too. After all, it’s the happy couple who are supposed to have the most amount of fun. But these two break every taboo and do it with such charm, adventure and at times hilarity that you cannot help but adore them both. Finally, they even save a little old lady from a shady lawyer and the entire town in the process. I could go on forever, but I don’t want to confuse you. It’ll all make perfect sense when you read it yourself. So read it yourself! Love it!

Kain, Amazon Reader

Great read for anyone who loves erotica. Born To Be Wild. What is better than a steamy erotic thriller? A steamy erotic thriller that has a fantastic story plot mixed with humorous situations. After a horrible date that resulted in being threatened by a sleazy lawyer Carry leaves town only to end up broke down 100 miles outside of town. She's rescued by a very manly biker who is not at all what he seems. The sex scenes are well written and not at all raunchy. The characters are believable and I found myself rooting for Carry and Dan from the minute Dan offered Carry a ride.
Rosemary M. Goddard, Amazon Reader

Born To Be Wild. This book was a page turner! I could not put it down! I absolutely loved the story line and Tirza's writing draws you in so you feel like you are right there with them. Amazing!!! Will be starting another book of hers right away!!!

Author Jean Walker, Amazon Reader

In The Event of Love. OMG, is Jake hot or what?! I wanted to jump right into the book and get him for myself. First of all, I have read all the previous Tamera Shobhan Erotic novels, so I didn’t read the description of this book before I bought it. I thought the girl was going to fall in love with the rapper. Last book was a rockstar after all. But that would have been predictable, right? So it’s the security guy and he is sooooo SWEET!!! Not in an unmanly way, but the difference between how he treats Charlotte and how the rapper KJ acts with women is parallel realities apart. And of course our female lead falls in love with Mr. Right. Everything seems perfect from the start and they even get over the long separation of Jake having to go on world tour with KJ. They even get over the two-continents-divide. And then, as is always so often in real life, they don’t get over the past. First Charlotte and then Jake. This book is kind of back to front. It starts great and then things start to happen, ending in a complete disaster and the breakup of the relationship. It’s the best example of what happens when you let fear and pride get in the way. Luckily, as with all great romantic literature, love wins the day! But it’s quite a jitterbug ride to get there and on the way, you want to shake both of the main characters back to their senses. Still, this is one EPIC love story. Tirza Schaefer manages to always find a new twist, a new tale to spin her narrative into a different direction than in her previous works. Happy endings are always the ultimate aim in romantic literature, with or without explicitly hot and sizzling scenes that make you want to dig your nails into the headboard (in Schaefer’s case, definitely with!). But ultimately, it’s the journey that counts how to get there, the winding, twisting, sometimes straight, sometimes winding path it takes. I’m in love with this author’s works, spiritual, poetic and romantic alike. And if she brings out a book in yet another genre, I am sure, I will love it, too! She is just that good! Read it and judge for yourself!

Kain, Amazon Reader

In The Event of Love. This needs to be in a televsion series. There is passion, romance and intense moments of decision making. I love how the main character makes the common typical reactions that most women have, to be vulnerable but desiring empowerment. It has some sexy moments like any erotic novel, but this work is done so well. It is not just about sex but an entire drama, arguments between the couple secrets revealed and family involvements. Get the book! So far this author is killing it with great writing.

Amazon Reader

Cloud Nine. This is the last of Tirza Schaefer’s erotic books I have read. As you can see, the author hasn’t become boring to me and I am impatiently awaiting new publications – not only in this genre! “Cloud Nine” is the story of a rockstar falling in love “against his will” with a girl who turns his life and all career choices he’s previously made upside down. It is a great example that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, too! We are all too eager to jump to conclusions, judge (mostly too harshly) and condemn our fellow human beings without bothering to look more deeply. When we do, however, we discover the beauty in so many people’s characters which we would have missed at first sight. This book starts with such an error of judgement, goes on to a sizzling scene high up in the sky and even with a down-to-earth view overcomes obstacles and preconceived ideas to blossom into something greater, something beautiful that would not have been discovered without an open heart and mind. This story is as hot and entertaining as it conveys a deeper wisdom without lifting a finger into your face in order to do so. It is more that the characters and narrative speak for themselves and through their experience open up new ways of thinking and perception in the reader that come as surprising as they come naturally and gently. Suffice it to say, I have become a great fan of Tirza Schaefer’s and am looking forward to read a lot more of her in the future! I love the way she masters the art of engaging storytelling with covertly conveying teachings of love and humanity through her books – not only in her erotica! I am definitely seeing her rise to set a new standard of writing: not only outside the box, but to a perception that goes well beyond any concept of boxes. Her work has certainly touched me on so many levels and I am eagerly awaiting more to come from this awe-inspiring woman!

Kain, Amazon Reader

Sealed Brothers. Loved it! This book is hot, hot, hot! I loved the character Haylee; she added spice as well as spirituality to the story and her hero Ash is super hot as well as loving! Tirza is a new author that I will definitely be checking more out!!!

Susan Pfeiffer Selva, Amazon Reader

Sealed Brothers. Now this is a story that starts with a boom and ends with a twist! I am not going to reveal more, you need to read this yourself. Suffice it to say that initial attraction is not always that what it seems and that a friend can support you in your own growth of knowing, you deserve not only more, but you deserve the best! All of it! All this is spiked with a detailed look into an unusually complex family, two brothers who can make any woman’s fantasies go into overdrive and an outcome that no one was expecting. Throughout, the female lead inspires with her humanity and greatness of character without being a push-over. An erotic narrative at its best!

Kain, Amazon Reader

Dating A Hero. A superb erotic military romance. A carefree quasi-hippie girl goes on a blind date arranged through a dating site and ends up hooking up with a masculine Navy Seal. The morning after is a bit awkward, but neither one can deny or resist the strong attraction they feel for each other. Unfortunately, the Seal gets sent to Afghanistan. When he returns to Germany, he informs the girl that he must move back to the US permanently and wants her to return with him. The story itself doesn't have a lot of twists and turns, there's no doubt in the reader's mind what will happen, but the story earns the 5 star rating by delivering some of the hottest, paint peeling sex ever committed to a story. It is vividly described and very arousing. If you like military romances filled with hot, hot, hot sex, this is definitely for you.

Kevin Lintner, Amazon Reader

Dating A Hero. This book is erotic with some fantastic fully detailed sex scenes. But what makes this book so much more than just porn is the great story line. The main characters meet on a dating site and have a wonderful first date. They quickly fall for each other but he ends up having to go to Afghanistan. When he comes back to Germany he asks her to come back with him to the United States. She has quite the decision to make and I believe she makes the right one. I loved this book by Tirza Schaefer just as much as I loved reading her other books.

Rosemary M. Goddard, Amazon Reader

Dating A Hero. As a bit of a hippie myself, the main character in this story immediately caught my attention. This story follows the life of a woman in Germany who meets a US Marine when he's deployed over there. They connect on a dating site, spend one passionate night together, and then things go ary when the marine first deploys to Afghanistan, and then must return to the US. Left in Germany, she must decide if she's going to stay in her comfort zone, or take the risk and leave all she knows for a chance at love.
There are so many ways this tale caught my attention. I'm a bit of a hippie who's currently madly in love with my very masculine-macho military man. We're the exact couple this tale was written about (heck, we even met on a dating site!). So the fact that I could so deeply relate to the characters immediately made me fall into the storyline. I loved how the main female really spoke to me and was so beautifully developed. Sometimes it's hard to connect with the female characters in romance and erotica novels, but in this story I felt like everything cliqued easily, and the characters easily stole my heart. Mister military guy was equally as appealing and the entire story, full of it's twists and turns, had me begging the author to just let them be together already!
This was such a fun read. There are definitely some very risque parts, and the passionate sex within moments of their first introduction was a lot of fun for me. As a girl who tends to move a little quickly, I loved seeing a main character in a romance/erotica follow the same habits. I just felt like everything about this book really related with me as a person and that made it so enjoyable for me to delve into.
This was just yet another brilliant, fun, sexy novel by Tirza. I've read one of her other books so far ('Birthday Present') and absolutely loved it. This book, I loved equally as much if not more. And I cannot wait to delve into more of her work.

Dawn Dolly Webb, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer

Dating A Hero. Sensual, erotic & fun! An internet dating site brought them together, but love and lust kept them that way! Dating a Hero is the second book I've read in the Tamera Shobhan Erotic Series and it's just as interesting, entertaining and erotic as the first book I read (Born to be Wild)! Looking forward to reading more of her work!

Karen Bennett, Amazon Reader

Dating A Hero is the third book I have read by Tirza Schaefer in as many days. As with the previous two I found that once I had started I could not put it down and finished the book in just one sitting. I liked the idea of their relationship starting on a dating site as this is becoming more and more common yet so few authors use it in their books. The characters are great and you genuinely want everything to work out for them as the story takes a few twists and turns that could potentially end their relationship.
Overall a fantastic adult book with real substance. Tirza Schaefer is fast becoming one of my favorite authors and I will definitely​ be keeping an eye out for more of her work.

Michael Naylor, Amazon Reader

Dating A Hero. We’ve all been on first dates and some went better than others. But when we meet someone that really goes under our skin, we ask ourselves how to act. How much interest should we show without coming across as overly eager, but we don’t want to seem too cold and aloof. This is definitely a situation we can all relate to. And when the person of our desire reciprocates, all kind of things could happen. The morning after is then another big questionmark. How can we avoid the embarrassing goodbye and how do we approach the question of seeing each other again – or not. Often, our own fears can block our path to happiness. But when two people are open and honest with each other, this can transmute into the beginning of something greater. This erotic tale combines human weakness with true heroism in a most human form we can all relate to – the consequences of which inspire dreams of a greater, grander life, not only in romantic and erotic terms. This book is charming, endearing, hot and spell-binding all at once! My only criticism: It ends too soon! I could have read another few hundred pages of this lovely couple. Then again, to my delight, the author has more books on offer, and I am going to read them all!

Kain, Amazon Reader

What you've got here in "Chopped Encounter" is Tirza Schaefer writing and lawd have mercy, this is a hothothothot story! I fell in love with all the characters in only the first four pages (prologue). This is how romantic erotica should be written, and Schaefer is clearly a pro. The pace of the story is excellent, there are no cliches, and the relationship between uber-stud US Marine Captain Wayne Turner, and the lovely and gorgeous German nurse, Kayla, is very sweet and romantic. And sexy. And hot. And...wow. Ultimately, the lead character, Wayne, is so damned hot that you'll want to push Kayla off the pages and crawl into the story and have sex with the hot and chivalrous Marine yourself. That's great storytelling. And excellent writing.
There's a ton of heart and feeling in Schaefer's words--it's not just sex on paper, but real feelings to go with it. She clearly knows the secret to romantic erotica: Have men treat women the way you wish they would in real life (aka: not self-absorbed). The story is really, really good. Besides, the whole point of good erotica is to arouse the reader--that will definitely happen with this story. Often. Read the book. Get hot. Read more of Schaefer's work. Get hotter. You get the idea.

Tina Johnson, Amazon Reader

Chopped Encounter. This book doesn’t go out with a bang, it starts with it! Who wouldn’t love to have a handsome US Marines officer literally fall from the sky for them? That’s what happens here. And it doesn’t get boring after that, either. The story is fast-paced and sizzling, but it’s not an ordinary romance novel, either. There is spirituality in it, the beauty of true friendship is highlighted on both sides of the main characters, and it teaches you that if you overcome your fears and go at a relationship with honourable intentions and mutual trust, things can work even between a military man and a spiritual, peace-loving hippie-cum-healer. The secret is to let each other be free in their individual expressions of how they want to live their lives and find common ground beyond physical attraction to sustain a loving, long-term relationship and happy marriage! I loved reading every Kindle page of it. And I will certainly buy more books of this author, Tirza Schaefer.

K.R. Shaw, Amazon Reader

Chopped Encounter. In a sleepy, Southern small town, a shamanic drumming group meets Marines at practice. A German nurse sees a Marines officer descend from the sky – and takes pictures with her before returning to training. I didn’t expect such a start at all and was wondering if the author had not shot all her ammunition too early. But no, there is more to come and all of it is not only entertaining, but also putting a spell on you. This is the story of not only two people falling in love, but it is also the story of an old veteran who imparts wisdom to the younger generation, loving friends who lend their support in times of need, the most heated battles between the sheets, and overcoming your past to step into a brighter, happier future. I’ve laughed, I’ve shed tears and I’ve been all hot and bothered reading this! An onslaught of emotions combined in a fast-paced, hot story that certainly has deserved to be called Erotic with a capital E!

Chopped Encounter is an erotic novel with a difference. The story is all a woman wants: a strong hero, a self-confident woman who can hold her own and loyal friends who help and support selflessly. The story starts with the Marine officer dropping right out of the sky. What a beginning! And there are a few funny scenes following before the action turns into the emotional depths of people of different backgrounds and life experiences. This is a book that has it all. Passion, depth and real character. The way it is written has a special charm of its own. There is so much love in the way the author, Tirza Schaefer, has described her characters that it gives the book an added dimension which is endearing to the heart. I have already bought another book of this author. Excuse me now, while I’m reading! – And read this book! It’s worth it!

Chopped Encounter. A true page-turner with great use of vocabulary and expression. I enjoyed reading this book. This is excellent and do not hesitate to purchase. A true page-turner for sure. The story is perfect for a screenplay too.

Amazon Reader

Chopped Encounter. Hallelujah indeed! Just to imagine a Marine, Captain Wayne Turner, falling from the sky like a raindrops into my lap... And it gets better after that! He doesn't mind that Kayla is in the middle of a New Ager spiritual drumming circle session. The two hit it off from the start, but then the past catches up on many levels and it takes a dying veteran and a paranoid best friend to sort it all out. But seriously, some of the hottest scenes I have read without being cheap and sleazy. Tirza Schaefer has a way of making the kinkiest scenes sound empowering and freeing because with all the heat and kink, she doesn't see the need to use derogatory and negative words, such as c**t, wh**e, sl*t and the like which usually other authors use that write very explicit kinky scenes. It's all a matter of your mindset and I love how Schaefer expresses herself without losing any of the steam and kink in the process, but rather adding to it. And moreover, Tirza wouldn't be herself, if she didn't weave something very profound into the story, a dying old man and how to handle being there for a loved one while passing over without distressing yourself or them, but rather, allowing it to be an empowering, liberating and deeply loving and healing process. Yes, and again, she writes it in such a way that it works perfectly. At the end of the day, that's what this book is all about: love on all levels, all areas of life. But read it for yourself! It's beautiful!

Soon she meets Hunter, a Marine from the United States who is there with some younger guys in his unit to celebrate his birthday. Not long after Chahna gives Hunter a birthday he will never forget. Neither of them are the type for one night stands so the reader can look forward to amazing sex scenes and a great story line.

Birthday Present. Birthday Present is an erotic romance story featuring Chahna Seaver, who meets Hunter Santiago, a gorgeous U.S. Marine at a club in Germany where his unit is visiting the German military for a two-week training session. But will he get more training than he bargained for by meeting this beautiful girl, Chahna. Read it to find out!

Karen Bennett, Amazon Reader

Birthday Present. Tirza Schaefer writes literotica like no one else. She doesn't write like she uses a template for stories where everything is the same except the character's names. All of her stories are different from the other and stand out in the field by putting her characters in extraordinary situations. In "Birthday Present," the female protagonist is Chahna. She is a beautiful, more mature German woman who heads out to a nightclub for a night of music and dancing. Chahna feels out of place at the club because the clientele all look so much younger than her. By chance she stumbles upon a United States Marine named Hunter who is out celebrating his birthday with other members of his unit. Hunter too feels out of place, even his unit members are younger than him. When he meets Chahna, sparks fly and soon than later their clothes go flying too. The storyline is romantic and fun and the sex is so very hot and steamy. This is a great story.

Kevin Lintner, Amazon Reader

Birthday Present is the second book I have read by Tirza Schaefer and she really does have a talent for putting two characters that on first glance do not go together and really making them work. Tirza Schaefer is one of very few authors who write adult fiction that has actual depth, character progression and realistic dialogue. This is a genre filled with a lot of trash lately and it is refreshing to find a quality author who can write books with substance for actual adults. Chahna and Hunter are brilliant characters and it is great to see their relationship grow from their meeting in a bar in Germany. It is a whirlwind romance that you cannot help but get caught up in and swept away by. Overall an excellent book that any adult fiction fans will enjoy.

Michael Naylor, Amazon Reader

Birthday Present. As the girlfriend of a military man and an avid reader of literotica 'Birthday Present' caught my eye right away. Anything where the lead character is in the military really touches home with me, and I had a lot of fun eagerly digging into this particular read. In 'Birthday Present' Chahna is your typical skeptical-of-men woman. She doesn't want her heart broken and she has a fearful outlook on love. When US Marine Officer, Hunter Sagiago steps into her life during his deployment in Germany, though, Chahna may not be able to resist the urges of his strong and powerful pull. Hunter has already fallen for Chahna, and although he could have practically any woman he wanted, he's determined to have her.
This story is a fun read that takes place in a military setting. I can tell that the author either did a significant amount of research into the US Marine Corp, or has dated or been related to someone in the service. There were a lot of aspects of my daily life, as the girlfriend of a boy in the US Army, that I found strewn throughout the story. The German setting was a nice touch, and I liked the foreign aspect, even though the main character was an American.
Chahna was extremely relatable to me. Guarded and a bit skeptical of love, I feel like many modern women know the feelings Chahna faces towards relationships. That made her an especially appealing character to me, and I felt very attached to her right from the beginning. Just as with Chahna, it took me a while to warm up to Hunter. But let's be honest; this hunk of a Marine is hard not to fall for. With the author's brilliant character development it's hard not to adore Chahna right away- and once you're warmed up to Hunter you spend a majority of the story rooting for these two to just fall in love.

Birthday Present. How does Tirza Schaefer do this? She introduces real life characters into a story that live seemingly opposing lives and blends them into a harmonious narrative that is full of eroticism, love and adventure. The military man and the hippie – and it works! What this shows us is that when we approach another human being with our heart, rather than our fixed opinions, beauty can be created in a form beyond our wildest expectations. When we overcome our fears and take a leap of faith, life can grow in its richness and awesomeness. And that is the beauty of it all. Tirza’s works are not merely hot adult material, but have an underlying story with real lives, feelings and emotions to it that are as arousing as they are heart-touching. And on a deeper level, we can all identify with it, which makes them so personal and moving. Truly a not only entertaining, but also thought provoking and heart-touching read. Her works are not for the superficial! Her words tickle all of your senses and emotions! Onto the next!

Kain, Amazon Reader

Birthday Present. Just get it! Atep right up and prepare to be amazed! This book is on fire! This is a real writer who has clearly taken the time to express a story and bring passion, lust and action. The way the author shares details on the characters was excellently written. Seriously, you will begin reading and not be able to put it down. Don't hesitate...get it!

Amazon Reader

The Dark Duke. Thank God, a regency romance that is not fading into the fireplace every time it gets hot or is totally soppy with the damsel in distress fainting every five minutes. Lizzy, the female lead is very much her own woman and she knows how to manipulate, too. Until the duke comes along and she suddenly experiences a whole new world of emotions. Still, she openly questions societal standards and takes conscious decisions regarding her sexuality, as opposed to merely being swept off her feet in a whirlwind of brain-paralysing passion. This story evolves not without challenges because in those times, the virtue of an unmarried noble woman was her highest good and she would lose all her value and social standing without it. Thank God for happy endings and an adventurous and empowering path Lizzy takes to get the man of her dreams!

Author Jeffrey W. Johnson, Amazon Reader

The Dark Duke. After reading first the author’s spiritual books, “Poetry From The Heart” and “A Magical family Holiday” which I loved, I went on to read the first of her erotic publications “Snake Goddess Rising” which I loved so much that this is the second of her erotic books I’ve purchased. This book is very different from the first. It is a historical romance with an added dark erotic streak that threads throughout the work which is as atypical for the average historical romance book as it is liberating. In fact, the main female character is anything but the helpless little virgin bride that we are used to from more traditional works in this genre. The lady questions established social conventions, takes conscious decisions for her own course of action and is not merely a “victim” of the overriding, worldly charm of the male hero’s charms which she falls prey to. As much as she is finding herself falling in love with the Dark Duke, Lizzy still finds a balance in her head between passion and thinking, surrender and making conscious choices. She is an empowered, strong woman without losing her femininity in the process. An absolutely charming read and full of sizzle and heat! I’m going to buy the next book now! I’m now definitely hooked on this author!

Kain, Amazon Reader

The Dark Duke. Brilliant , historical, rebellious and steamy. The Dark Duke has it all. I couldn 't put it down - an absolute must read!

Amazon Reader

The Dark Duke. I have thoroughly enjoyed this book. I have read all the others books and the writing is excellent, the stories are well written.

Amazon Reader

A Modern kind of Austenesque! I am sure The Dark Duke was inspired by Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" (my personal all-tiem favourite book in the world), as indeed have been many other books before this. This can go either way, headed for complete disaster or work really well. This book, as all of Tirza Schaefer's, whether they be romantic or spiritual, belongs to the latter category. The cover alone makes you feel you're about to be given some highly-priced, gold-plated luxury candy and the storyline inside reveals that you hold a gem in your hands indeed. I love how Tirza paints a historical heroine with the courage and conviction of the modern day, yet at the same time not imprinting modern mentality on a person who has supposedly lived a couple of hundreds of years previously. Women were treated differently then and they had a completely different mindset than women do nowadays. What strikes me is this balance between modern free thought and historically accurate modes of behaviour and rules. Thus, Tirza's Lizzy is an outstanding character, a woman strong enough to fight for her happiness, yet sensitive enough to have all the fears a woman of her time would really have had about being cast out by her family if she disgraced them, etc. I'd say, this is my favourite of all of Schaefer's books, but I think that everytime I read one, really. And they are all special and unique. It never gets boring or predictable. From India to regency to US biker gangs and SpecOps Seals and Marines or a Bulgarian publisher, Tirza Schaefer has more great stories in one head than most other people put together. I know, I'm repeating myself, BUT... get it, read it, love it, work yourself into a sweat in more ways than one,from righteous indignation at the cruel inhumane set of historical society to really steamy over those scenes when Lizzy and The Dark Duke are alone together. - Wooohooo!!!

Snake Goddess Rising by Tirza Schaefer isn’t exactly the title you would expect from a romantic or erotic novel. It piqued my interest, so I bought it. I thought, at worst, I might gain some insights into some religious Indian (Hindu) practices. How this could be combined with the genre under which I found this book, I had no idea, but I was going to find out! The book surprised me upon reading even further. Not only does this narrative work on so many seemingly opposing levels, but it also works in its entirety! You don’t have to be spiritually inclined to feel with the main character, a German woman travelling to India in the footsteps of her hippie mother to pay homage to a serpent deity, but the relationship she builds with the hero of the story is one imbued with gentle kindness, love and growing respect on both sides. An old grandmother and a wise and humorous Hindu priest all play a part as this story unfolds and the affection as well as the attraction of the two main characters progresses naturally from sizzling undercurrents to an explosion of fireworks. And all of this before the backdrop of a culture that is as enchanting and beautiful as it can be at times superstitious and fearful. Deep connection with spirituality combine with social conventions, sometimes at war with one another, but it also shows that with an open, loving heart, you can build a solid bridge not only between nations and cultures, but also on a very personal and intimate level that is as enriching as it is rewarding. The story doesn’t really need any erotic components to stand in its own right, yet the marriage between all those factors works surprisingly well and adds yet another glorious level to the whole! I will definitely be reading more from this author!

Snake Goddess Rising. I truly believe there aren't any words in any language to accurately state how magnificent this book is. I am so excited that this author has finally decided to publish her books. Her blogs are outstanding as well. This book is romance, spirituality and filled with passion.

Amazon Reader

I love serpent deities and romance! Complex & perfect! Snake Goddess Rising. Being very spiritual and also loving HEA romance, this book right in the middle of India, part spiritual (Hindu) and a little Bollywood fairy-tale is just perfect for me. What I love about Tirza Schaefer's work is the fact that each book is so complex. It's never just one-dimensional, but contains so many layers always, weaving many different topics into the mix of passionate love with an easy flow that is so unique, special and outstanding to this author's style. Her website and facebook fanpages are also a treasure chest akin to the cave of wonders from Aladdin's tale. So many beautiful thinngs to find. Blog, poetry, romance, spiritual services, editing, children and parenting, spiritual and romantic poetry, the list goes on. Schaefer is as versatile as she is free in her expression, combing the holy and sacred with passion and real life. She has it all. Her many facets also flow into her work and style and I also love how her covers are s artsy and the interior is just as beautiful. Those are books you want to keep on your shelf and read over and over again! Love it! This book is great! From temple to bedroom, it all works! So rich, sweet and hot!

Marine Party. The book starts with a woman looking at a picture that was taken of a man at a party. And she speaks to him, recounting the events that happened on that particular day. It's a story of love at first sight, instant mutual attraction, but one that goes way deeper than the skin and the little details of character and skills you get acquainted with throughout give this narration a very real and human touch. The man, Alex, is as much a hero as a big, tough Marine can be, but in the story, he turns out to be just as sensitive, affectionate and even somewhat insecure about Merit as she is about him. Once she opens up and takes a plange, then he does, and vice versa. The two protagonists play the ball to each other, neither is the only active part with the other one merely passively reacting. I like this kind of balance. I love how much strength lies in their simple humanity. And when you get to the end, you had forgotten how the book started with that one picture. But you are reminded again. And the outcome is more than a little surprising. But oh so sweet! Clutching my heart here. If you want true romance, this is it. It's a short novella, but all the more intensely sweet for it! Tirza Schaefer has done it again. Not an ordinary novel by any means. Read it!

Elizabeth Bennett, Amazon Reader

Love In The Sky. OMG!!! Hot, hot, hot! They meet up in the sky and end up in a hotelroom. For a week! Hot, steamy and romantic, all in one. And of course, the hero wouldn’t be the hero if he didn’t very heroically safe the day when a jeweller’s gets robbed. One big heartthrob! Sigh!

Amazon Reader

Just heavenly! Love In The Sky by Tirza Schaefer is another short romance that is way more than merely that, a romance. It is the study of two very different characters meeting on a plane and instantly being attracted to each other. They come from very different backgrounds and points of view, and yet, it becomes quickly apparent that they were made for each other. Both have their own special fields of expertise, both are successful in their chosen fields of professions. Neither one is jealous or over-bearing, but instead, they naturally combine their respective strengths and skills to make one formidable dreamteam. And it needs a team to get to where they end up in the end as well. This is romance, relationship psychology and fast paced action all rolled into one, rounded off by an HEA that will put a big smile on your face! Get the book. Just read it!

The Right Kind of Wrong. Now this is what you get when you’re not being honest and authentic with yourself and others! And it shows us how we get ourselves tangled up in drama completely unnecessarily because we pretend to be what we are not! This book begins with a memory of times past and smoothly links it into the present. And then the two meet and oh! Anger doesn’t begin to describe it. At first. But then the passion breaks through and guess what happens when they’re finally honest with each other? Feeling sheepish? Sometimes that’s just what you need to save the day! Sexy and hot!!!

Amazon Reader

The Right Kind of Wrong. How stupid can you get? Yes, there is no end to human stupidity. None whatsoever! And here is a classic example of two people meant for each other spending half their lives without each other and even hating each other for something that was never real in the first place. When you just make assumptions, rather than ask. Yes, you make yourself vulnerable perhaps, and there is fear of rejection. We all have it from time to time. But hey, that doesn't mean we can walk about pretend-proud like a peacock but really stick our heads into the sand like an ostrich. I was biting my nails reading this, groaning in agony. And finally, at last, they TALK! And surprise, surprise, things get resolved and I finally get my HEA I've been fretting for reading this. But that is what Tirza Schaefer does to you with her writing skills. The characters are so real and so belieavable, you forget they are fictitious. You want to crawl inside the book, grab them by the throat and wring some sense into them. Or maybe just shake them by the shoulders... And when the two protagnists finally get their hands (and more) on each other, it's like a cataclysmic relief of epic proportions for the reader. For me. And you when you read it. Do! Honestly, you'll miss out if you don't. Just saying...

A New Family For Christmas. I've just received this in the post three days ago and read it in one session. This story is so cute and it also is so tender and loving. The autor's dedication is addressed to those who are unable to conceive a child of their own. She encourages others by sharing her own history of being adopted and having children she gave birth to herself, so she is familiar with both ways of building a family and says both are equally valid and strong. Schaefer doesn't merely write a love story, she shines her light, giving hope and spreading joy in the process. And still, the intimate scenes are really hot. And it all works! All of it! I love it! A great read, not only at Christmas time.

The Navy Seals's Nanny. Funny and hot! I don't know how many different versions of taghag she comes up with, just to make sure no one thinks she is "one of those." But Bailey falls in love with sibling teenagers before she has to admit that her heart has been captured by one annoying-as-hell Seal. Can that end in any other way than total disaster and heartache? Find out yourself, you'll love it!

Elizabeth Bennett, Amazon Reader

He-Seal & She-Wolf! OMG! Hilarious! Christmas in Montana. This story is possibly the funniest of Tirza Schaefer's shorter novellas. Absolute highlight is the aged and demented she-wolf Vicky who plays a central part in the plot. I have literally been laughing tears! My bedroom is in the basement and there are not many authors who can make me feel hot down there, but Tirza Schaefer does it time and again. Over achiever, haha! Seriously? I was in a sweat each time Ace and Sutani get it going on! This book is a little gem and has a proud place on my shelf. I love the cover as well, as Wolf is one of my power animals I work closely with. So on so many levels, this book totally hit the spot for me, or maybe less seriously expressed, Vicky the wolf barfed all over my spot, haha! This is just great! I want more!

Poetry

 

"She is the modern day Shakespeare all on her own. Her poetry is written in a way that will make you love it, feel her heart and receive an in-depth message."

Marilyn Holzmann, Spiritual Teacher

"Tirza has taken poetry to a new level. With her healing messages along with titillating music, she inspires the world!"

Maxine Whitfield, Poet

"What a thoroughly researched and mystical treat easily followed  throughout our numerous Goddess/God histories! Tirza weaves her magical poems making Lady Bastet a tangible source of worship and strength for women. There is so much knowledge found in her background information, She actually creates a friendly Anubis who seems to soothe her in one of her visions of an ancient & secret burial chamber. Tirza is a Wordmaster and a gifted poet that brings to life our duality as well as our Oneness with the universe and an all pervasive Love to all!"
