Love at War
by Viola Russell | Interview

Q: LOVE AT WAR has such a unique premise. How did you come up with the idea?
I wrote LOVE AT WAR after my mother died. All of my uncles served in WWII, and I found letters her brothers wrote home. Her brother Russell was the most constant correspondent, and one letter to my grandparents made me cry: "We have everything packed and are ready to leave tomorrow. About noon time...
Back to You
by Natalie-Nicole Bates | Interview

Q: Where did you get the idea for BACK TO YOU?
I wanted to write a book about an idyllic little town with memorable characters. Unity is also the setting for my contemporary romance, Change of Address. I wanted to explore the possibility of a relationship happening after a long separation period. I also wanted to explore dating after a long-term...
Derek
by Sienna Matthews | Interview

Q: How does it feel to be a published author?
Fabulous! There's still a sense of disbelief when I see my book in "print".

Space In His Heart
by Roxanne St. Claire | Interview

Q: What made you decide to do a book about the US space program?
I live on the Space Coast of Florida, in the shadow of Kennedy Space Center. After watching my first shuttle launch -- standing in my backyard! -- I was a fan. When the astronauts would arrive and fly the T-38s overhead, I'd get chills just imagining how daring and sexy those guys could be...I couldn't...
Proof of Love
by Arabella Stokes | Interview

Q: Why did you choose the Georgian period of English history for your setting instead of the more traditional Regency period?
My hero really started it all. I had just watched The Duchess, with Keira Knightley, when I ran across an article about one of her in-laws, the scientist Henry Cavendish. Henry was an odd little fellow, but I started thinking about how many gentlemen and peers of the Georgian era were involved in scientific...
Strings Attached
by Anne Holly | Interview

Q: Where did you get the idea for STRINGS ATTACHED?
I wrote the original draft of Strings Attached back in 2000 or 2001, I think, so it's difficult to remember what all went into it. I do know that certain elements involving Katie's death were inspired by real life events in the news at the time, though not exactly. I was also passionate about animal...
Eulogy's Secret
by Grace Elliot | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for EULOGY'S SECRET?
The idea for Eulogy's Secret came from a poster on the London Underground.

I was taking my sons to the theatre when through the dirty glass I glimpsed a poster for a memorial concert at the Royal Albert Hall. One word on that poster stuck in my mind - "eulogy".

It struck me that eulogy would...

Ruined
by Kinley Baker | Interview

Q: What was your inspiration for writing RUINED?
I wrote RUINED because I wanted to create a mystical realm full of magic and shadows. I envisioned a picture of an enchanting castle with a beautiful and sacred power source hidden in its depths. Romancing the mystery of shadows became a little bit of an obsession, which is where the idea of shifting...
Tides of Passion
by Tracy Sumner | Interview

Q: What inspired you to write TIDES OF PASSION?
Well, I was very inspired to write TIDES OF LOVE. It's a bit of an unusual romance -- about a marine biologist in 1898. I based the locale on Beaufort, NC (Outer Banks) and the second marine biology lab, after Woods Hole, built in the US. I have a thing for sexy, nerdy heros. Anyway, once I started...
Always Her Cowboy
by Karen Rose Smith | Interview

Q: ALWAYS HER COWBOY was set on a ranch in Wyoming. This is much different than the L.A. setting of other books in the Search for Love Series. What was your motivation behind the change in scenery?
When I planned the Search For Love series with both revised and updated titles as well as new books, I decided to try to please a variety of readers. Each is a different type of romance. Many of my readers like "cowboy" books. I am always challenged to find a new twist to life on a ranch. I truly love...
The Chameleon Goggles
by Maureen O. Betita | Interview

Q: The world you've created in the Kraken's Caribbean in amazing. Please tell us more about this fantastic world you've created.

The only thing keeping the world from being overrun is the Great Albino Kraken and the magic workers. They work together to make certain no weapons of mass destruction come through,...
Destiny Redeemed
by Gabrielle Bisset | Interview

Q: The world of the Aeverens is extremely unique. Please give us some more information about these interesting people.
Aeveren are descended from humans and their physiology is exactly like humans. Long ago, the Archangel Raziel saw people who practiced alchemy and mysticism and were persecuted for the very arts he represented. Full of sympathy for them, he rescued them from the attacks and bestowed upon them gifts...
Nathan's Vow
by Karen Rose Smith | Interview

Q: NATHAN'S VOW is a unique story about a man, Nathan, who turns to a psychic, Gillian, to help him find his missing daughters and they end up falling in love. I thought that it was a very unique storyline. How did you come up with the idea?
Life energy fascinates me. Energy surrounds us all the time. For years, because of physical problems, I've turned to acupuncture, cranial-sacral work and guided imagery. I know first-hand the healing power of all of those therapies based on and managing life energy. I've also learned about the mind-body...

In an attempt to understand why I was feeling this way, I decided to get closer to Xavier, and to know the man behind the art.
