Like most folks I was born, but from then on things got strange. Raised on Vienna sausage, potted meat and fried bologna. At a young age I got exposed to high levels of southern-fried weirdness that forced me into using comics, fantasy & science-fiction novels and video games to self-medicate against the symptoms of reality.
I started writing while still developing as a fetus - I owe all that amniotic fluid swirling around my little naked body as being the greatest influence to my creative process.
Today I reside in the dungeon of a cardboard castle - with my wife and three step-sons - where I paste newspaper clippings to the wall with spit in order to create storyboards for novels of fantasy, horror, science-fiction, and sometimes homo-robotic fictional memoirs.
As an added extra bonus for the fans: The thing I fear the most are those paintings of the giant squid (Kraken) wrapping its tentacles around an entire ship. Thats' a freaky image, man.
Lita Stone writes unapologetic romances with tactful realism. Her books deal with dark but realistic hardships, flawed but authentic characters, and most importantly, her books tell stories of love--a love that is faltering but pure.
'Sweet romances' are not in Lita's spectrum. She lives with her characters in the real world, ie.....Smalltown, USA, where the beer is cold, the whiskey is Tennessean and the sex is hot.
"I've read Books One and Two back to back and I can't stop now! Great series. Nothing else like it."
"The character development from the first book is thought provoking with the characters questioning their moral values. The plot has continued to grow and develop. I can not wait for the next book. A must read!"
"I loved it! I know, it gets a little rough and rowdy sometimes, but that just adds to the overall feeling of the story. I'm a grandmother and I'm looking forward to reading the next book to find out what happens!"
That is what this is, adult and dark and disturbing. I was disturbed in ways I haven't been since opening my very first Stephen King back in high school. If that is what you are looking for, please pick this up. Good writing is getting hard to find."
