Sunsets and New Beginnings
by Teri Riggs
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.

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...

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...

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...
Brooke: Wagers Gone Awry
by Collette Cameron
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...

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...

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.
Saving Their Princess
by TL Reeve
Q: SAVING THEIR PRINCESS is book #10 in the Beyond Fairytales series. Please give us an overview of the series, and the inspiration for its conception. N:
Okay, a quick run of the series is simple. There is a storyteller, Nicodemus, who for a gold coin will tell you a story. Those are the fairytales we create, but they're not the fairytales you or I read as a child. No, these are souped up retellings made for adults. Check out the Beyond Fairytale Blog...

Q: What is your inspiration for DRAGON WIFE?
The inspiration for this novel came directly from an amazingly vivid dream. In it, I experienced living in a medieval other-world where dragons had just woken from centuries of enchanted sleep. The hero and heroine were already there, fully-formed, as was my sense of their dynamic relationship.
by Jamie W. Matlock
Q: What's your inspiration for this story?
I'm an avid sports fan--tennis, football, hockey, auto racing. You name it and I probably follow it! I've always enjoyed infusing sports into my stories (And it doesn't hurt that most athletes are in the best shape of their lives, making for sexy leading men and ladies!). That's not to say that everything...

Q: What's your inspiration for the series? What is the central theme that holds all the books together?
This thirteen book series actually began as a single story. One book. But there are three mystical identical sisters who are descended of a three thousand year old line they can trace, and a curse all have lived under all those millennia. So Mystic Thunder became the first of a trilogy that includes...
