Crossroads
by Chantal Fernando | Interview

Q: Where did you get the inspiration for this story?
The idea for this story came to me early on in the series when Ranger was first introduced. I liked the idea of him being with a cop, someone who is essentially his enemy.

Seeking Mr. Wrong
by Natalie Charles | Interview

Q: Where did you get the inspiration for this story?
I was plotting my next book and I had settled on writing about a kindergarten teacher who is somehow forced to write erotica. My five-year-old daughter inspired the best parts of Lettie's niece, Portia. My daughter is feisty and strong-willed, and she comes out with some real zingers at times. Portia...
Edge of Yesterday
by Tarah Scott; Sue-Ellen Welfonder | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Edge series? How are the books tied together?
Tarah Scott: When Sue-Ellen and I decided to write a time travel together, the Edge series really just grew organically. Before a single word was committed to the paper, we realized that our initial idea was too big for one book. The books are tied together by the villain and by familial ties.

Sue-Ellen...

In Mistletoe
by Tammy L. Bailey | Interview

Q: First, I have to say, I love your cover! There's something sweet and heartwarming about the way the two of them are snuggled against each other. What was your part in the cover-making process?
Thank you. I love the cover, too. Basically, my part is to search through stock photos and then send the cover artist some ideas. When I saw this couple, I created a mock cover using Canva and then posted it on my personal Facebook page. I received a lot of likes, so I knew this couple is who I wanted...
The Fortune Teller's Garden
by Frances DeleCourt Winters | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration? Your heroine, Keighley Woodson, is a psychic. What is your fascination with psychics and things paranormal?
Well, she's not really a psychic and never claims to be, though she in known throughout her small town of Cobweb Corners New Hampshire as a talented palm reader. She is simply a caring and insightful young woman who knows how to help heal emotional pain, and beautifully too.

Let me explain. I teach...

Outside Blessings
by Penelope Marzec | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for OUTSIDE BLESSINGS?
My oldest daughter has a Masters in Marine Science. One of her courses involved studying harbor seals in NJ. The harbor seals visit the coast every year during the wintertime. My daughter and I often take our cameras and binoculars to see them. During our forays, the two of us began to spin a tale about...
Out of Orbit
by Thea Landen | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for OUT OF ORBIT, a romantic science fiction?
My regular readers know by now that I'm a big fan of both video games and sci-fi. In the fourth installment of the Phantasy Star series (one of my all-time favorites!), it's revealed that there's another planet in the star system that only comes close to the others every one thousand years. Many, many...
Surfacing
by Daniel Stephens | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for this book?
I grew up in a rural, mountain top community in northern New Jersey much like Wolf Thorn Lake in the novel. When I was nineteen, I moved to New York City and I was very surprised by the questions I received about my home on a lake in north Jersey. To my friends in Manhattan, my life in the woods appeared...
Smuggler's Bounty
by Vanessa Liebe | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for SMUGGLER'S BOUNTY?
I have always been fascinated by smugglers ever since a school project when I was little and I discovered that there were smuggler tunnels in our village. I also love the wild beauty of Cornwall and its history of smugglers. I think this story has always been at the back of my mind.

A Midsummer's Kiss
by Meara Platt | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Farthingale series? How are the books tied together?N:
I've always been a fan of historical romance novels. Jane Austen, of course, set the standard of excellence with Pride and Prejudice. However, I also have a big, loud, loving and meddlesome family that I love dearly and who are very important in my life. These two influences somehow came together to...
I'll Still Be There
by Keelan Ellis | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for I'LL STILL BE THERE?
The idea for the possession aspect came to me out of the blue, and it was originally just a short story. However, once I'd written it, I realized that I wanted to explore who these ghosts are, so I wrote a second short story about them. At some point I realized they'd work better if they were integrated,...
Sunsets and New Beginnings
by Teri Riggs | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Heaven's Beach Love Story series? How are the books tied together?
I love the beach and have always wanted to write a beach love story. Nothing is more peaceful than the sounds of the ocean waves rolling in and back out again.

Special Delivery
by Laura Browning | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Mountain Meadow Homecomings series? How are the books tied together? N:
My inspiration rarely comes from any one thing. In this case, part of it grew from passing through the community of Meadows of Dan, Virginia while traveling to visit my mother. I do a lot of thinking while I drive in order to keep myself awake. This particular area is very picturesque and started me...
