I'm a country gal at heart and am pretty keen on cowboy and home-grown heroes. Happily-ever-after is something I believe in with my whole heart. Love may be a bumpy road and there ares bound to be some perils along the way but in the end love should win. I try to take that attitude into my writing and think that love, hope and laughter are some of the best medicine there is. Along with books.
I love to hear from readers and the most important thing I can say is - "thank you. To every reader who has spent his or her hard-earned reading dollars on a Ciana Stone book, thank you from the bottom of my heart."

Normandie had the best of several worlds: a Southern heritage, access to schooling in the DC area (which meant lots of cultural adventures), and several years of sculpture studies in Italy. It might have been better for her if she'd used all these opportunities more wisely, but it's possible that the imperfect and the unwise also add fodder for the artist and the writer.

Best-Selling Romantic Suspense from Deborah Camp!
5 Stars from a Reader Like You! Check them out on Amazon.
"Deborah Camp has done it again . . . added another fascinating book to her long list of entertaining reads. THROUGH HIS EYES is a romantic suspense chock full of both . . . steamy, titillating romance and edge of your seat suspense.
I loved the paranormal twist with psychics Trudy Tucker and Levi Wolfe. Trudy has the ability to see and feel the horrific acts committed by murderers. Levi can speak to the victims, chronicling the last hours, even minutes, of their life. They team up to end the gruesome spree of a serial killer in the Florida Keys. Along the way, they realize their connection is much more than shared psychic abilities as their hearts and bodies entwine as tightly as their minds.
Some of the scenes viewed by Trudy are graphic. I typically don't like extreme violence but these scenes are necessary to fully translate the villain's evil intentions. While at times intense, the balance is restored with witty banter and sexy encounters between Levi and Trudy.
THROUGH HIS EYES is a well written thriller with a healthy dose of romance. It should be on the "must read" list of every romantic suspense reader but more than that, anyone who enjoys a good crime novel or action thriller will definitely want to consider this novel for their library. A very good read!"

I am a native Angeleno, specifically an original valley girl. (Cue Frank Zappa music). I am a self-professed bibliophile, with a Kindle library larger than Imelda Marcos' closet. I have also been writing since I was old enough to form letters when someone shoved a crayon into my tiny little fist as a toddler. Those letters eventually became sentences, and those sentences eventually turned into stories. It took a long time before I was able to turn those stories into something I felt was worthy of sharing with the world, but finally here we are. I hope that you agree.
As for the rest of me, I'm a 40-something (no, I'm not going to tell you how many somethings follow the 40) mother of three who has been married to my husband for 16 years. We live in a small enclave just north of Los Angeles with my aunt, who is also an author.
Shattered Perfection is my debut novel. The original draft was written over a three week period in October/November 2014. It "marinated" on my hard drive until February 2015, when a good friend and fellow author begged to read it. I was completely against the idea, but being the persuasive and amazingly handsome fellow he is, he was impossible to resist.
After far less rewriting and editing than I imagined would be necessary, I am now able to share with you a story that I hope will make you laugh, cry and ultimately feel as though you have loved right along with Mimi and Vance.

USA TODAY bestselling author Olivia Wildenstein grew up in New York City, the daughter of a French father with a great sense of humor, and a Swedish mother whom she speaks to at least three times a day. She chose Brown University to complete her undergraduate studies and earned a bachelor’s in comparative literature. After designing jewelry for a few years, Wildenstein traded in her tools for a laptop computer and a very comfortable chair. This line of work made more sense, considering her college degree.
When she’s not writing, she’s psychoanalyzing everyone she meets (Yes. Everyone), eavesdropping on conversations to gather material for her next book, baking up a storm (that she actually eats), going to the gym (because she eats), and attempting not to be late at her children’s school (like she is 4 out of 5 mornings, on good weeks).
Wildenstein lives with her husband and three children in Geneva, Switzerland, where she’s an active member of the writing community.

I live in Calimesa, California with my husband, two cats, and beloved dog. I have two sons off paving their own way in the world. I grew up in Wichita, Kansas and have lived all over the United States. My entire life has revolved around imaginary worlds contained within the covers of a book.

I am an author and a Bible teacher. The Bible is -- by far -- my favorite book. I read it regularly in the original languages (Greek and Hebrew) and several literal English translations, frequently in the German (usually the Elberfelder) and the Greek OT (the Septuagint), and occasionally in the Latin. The areas of study that fascinate me the most include Bible languages, eschatology (prophecy), apologetics, ancient history (particularly ancient catastrophism), and electric universe cosmology.
Currently my wife, Nita, and I reside in Harvey, ND, where I share in the ministry of the Word at Harvey Gospel Chapel. We have four children, all of whom are married, and ten grandchildren. We live in an older fixer-upper that we have largely remodeled.
My work experience is extremely varied --- my brother-in-law once teased me that I should write a book called "101 Occupations." I have been, among other things, an Airborne Ranger, a cook, a waiter, a meat cutter, a carpenter, a mason tender, a painter, a remodeler, a janitor, a food-service delivery driver, a truck driver, a farm hand, a factory worker in numerous settings, a sawmill hand, a lumber yard hand, a security guard, a car salesman, an insurance salesman, a daytrader, a Jiffy Lube tech, and a propane truck driver. My current job is delivering newspapers. I also designed and built a 3600' square foot, square-timber log home which we enjoyed for ten years.
I am a man of simple pleasures: backpacking, hiking, campfires, mountains, sunrises and sunsets, thunderstorms, starry skies, northern lights, coffee, dark chocolate, reading, friends, and good conversation. My favorite genres of music include the whisper of the wind in the pines, the call of Canadian geese, the cry of the loon, the bugle of a bull elk, hymns, worship music, and classical music. When I really get a strong itch for adventure, I like to climb mountains --- over the years I have managed to climb Mt. Rainier once and Granite Peak in Montana three times. Next up? Maybe a fourteener with my son Noah in Colorado.
