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...
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...
Finding Matt
by JD Ruskin | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for FINDING MATT? N:
Jaron Greenberg's Newfoundland dog, Bear, was inspired by my childhood dog. Bear's fearlessness and protective nature are a nod to my very first dog. I also tend to get a lot of inspiration from the news. I live in a small town similar to Stanton, IL. The inspiration for FINDING MATT is based on a real...
Bronze Fox
by Diana Green | Interview

Q: Where did you get the inspiration for your Rifters series? What is the significance of the series title? How are the books tied together?N:
As sometimes happens with me, the initial inspiration came from an amazing dream. I woke after dreaming the opening scenes of BRONZE FOX and just had to write them down. They were so vivid and intriguing, I couldn't help adding more. That was the seed for the first novel, and then ideas for a whole series...
The Earl and the Spinster
by Collette Cameron | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Conundrums of the Misses Culpepper series? How are the books tied together?N:
I have three sisters and two first cousins I'm very close to. In fact, my cousin was my best friend from the time we were both babies until she died of brain cancer. I wanted to write a series that showed the unique bond between sisters and cousins, but also allowed me to have free rein with my quirky...
Time Eternal
by Lily Morgan | Interview

Q: What inspired the Time Series? What is it about?N:
My inspirations come from different places--my work, my friends, things I've read, things that I've loved since I was a little girl, especially things that are very different from my day job.

After being an avid romance novel reader for many years, I've started having an itch, needing to create...

Prymal Passion
by Jianne Carlo | Interview

Q: Which is titled PRYMAL PASSION. What has the series arc been so far? What's happened by now in the Prymal world?

In Prymal Passion we get the first hint of what the enemy, the Jaeger, looks like. I don't want to spoil the surprise, so I'm not going to go into detail about that revelation.
