Please join me in welcoming author D.V. Stone for the inside scoop on the inspiration behind her writing. Jazz House is the second book of her Impact Series and is a perfect pick for anyone in the mood for page-turning, romantic suspense.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Title: Jazz House
Author: D.V. Stone
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Jordan Vasilakis is on the run, living under an assumed name. After a disastrous marriage to a notorious Greek business tycoon, she flees to the States and starts rebuilding her life. But her ruthless husband is determined to destroy her…once he finds her.
Michael Machau is drawn to the new singer at Jazz House restaurant, but the guarded woman is harboring dangerous secrets. The dedicated police officer may have to risk more than just his heart to forge a connection with the woman he knows as Madeline Cielo, especially when he discovers she’s living a lie.
Worlds collide. Lies entangle. Survival, much less love, is in question. They must quickly distinguish friends from enemies or risk losing everything—including a future together.
What was the inspiration behind your latest release?
Jazz House is the second book of my Impact series. It’s about the impact of not only First Responders but how each life and choices affect so many people.
Where do you get your ideas?
I’m a former First Responder. An Emergency Medical Technician, both as a volunteer and professional. It’s been a long time but somethings stay with you forever.
Have you ever traveled when researching information for a book?
Yes, in Rock House Grill, the first book, I went scouting for a perfect real place for Aden and Shay’s first date in the Delaware Water Gap. Many places in Jazz House are inspired by places I’ve been to during my travels.
When did you begin writing?
I love books and several times in my life tried to write, but family, jobs, and life were a priority. During one of our previous financial downturns, I became laid off and took the opportunity to do what I wanted to do.
How many hours do you dedicate each day towards writing?
It varies though I do try to write each day. I blog and count that as writing as well as content for my social media. Sometimes, despite what others say, you do need to walk away and take a break. Often my husband and I will take a “date” day and we go have fun. Please, everyone, take time for fun.
What project are you currently working on?
I have several projects in the hopper. The third Impact book is on the table focusing on Firefighters. My publisher, The Wild Rose Press, will be publishing Sophia’s Magic Beans next spring. I also write across different genres as an independent author and have a Fantasy series about ready to hit the market as well as a historical paranormal action-adventure in conjunction with other authors set for spring.
D. V. Stone is an award-winning, multi-genre, traditionally and independently published author. She writes books people want to read. Whether romance or fantasy, her stories are about the importance of friends and family. About overcoming obstacles while doing it with humor.
Around the Fire is a popular weekly blog where she introduces both established and new authors giving an insider’s look into their lives and books as well as tidbits about her own life.
After retiring, she is now a full-time author and incorporates her life experiences into her books.
A former Emergency Medical Technician, she volunteered in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania. At the same time, she worked as a professional EMT in a women’s state prison. She was the proprietor of a coffee shop, and a small restaurant/ice cream stand in the years that followed. The years following were as a manager in an animal emergency hospital, while her last position was in a human medical office.
When not behind the wheel of 2Hoots—a 41 foot long 13.2 feet high 5th Wheel camper, she rambles around town in Northern New Jersey in a white Camaro. She also loves travel and history.
D.V. is wife to an amazing husband, mother to one son, and not your average grandma to three beautiful grands. A woman of faith, she believes and trusts in God.
“My greatest pleasures are spending time outside with friends and family, cooking over the open fire, sipping a glass of wine, and reading.”
Hali, her rescue dog, always reminds her to let readers know, “Woof, woof.” Which is loosely translated as support your local animal rescue.
