Hi, my name is D. V. Stone. I am a multi-genre author who also enjoys reading across genres. On this page you'll meet a great group of writers and get an insider's view into their lives and books. I hope you enjoy this special peek and find new and exciting reads.
Who I have lived or traveled in five of the seven continents and published fourteen mystery or romantic suspense novels. I have two children, a wonderful granddaughter, and divide my time between the Gulf Coast of Florida and a tiny village in Maine.
Interests Living in Florida I spend time at the beach & bird watching, kayaking, studying the unique & odd Florida history, and just soaking up the blue sky & warm sun.
Network Social media links I use most are Facebook, my blog M. S. Spencer Tale Spinner, and Twitter, but I’m also on Linked In, Goodreads, Bookbub, and Pinterest. Since I grew up in DC & worked for the Senate I’m naturally a political junkie. I keep abreast of the news on all kinds of news aggregates, websites, and C-Span (politics kept totally separate from my writing networks of course!). I live in a complex of bungalows a few yards from the beach with wonderful neighbors who love to socialize but understand the introvert in me.
Desk I work at my husband’s antique mahogany desk facing my garden. To my left is the 18th-century grandfather clock an ancestor brought to America. To my right are my assorted diplomas & the Roget’s Thesaurus my grandfather gave me. On the desk is the status of Ganesh from my father’s desk, and the photo of my daughter & baby granddaughter.
Outrageous I have studied nine languages but have forgotten most of them. In my garden in Virginia I grew more than 12 kinds of vegetables, 15 types of herb, and 10 different varieties of fruits. Here in Florida I’m down to six.
Window My desk faces a picture window looking out at my garden. I love to watch the blue jays & squirrels fight over the peanuts I leave out. Over the fence I can watch the Florida sun setting in fiery flames in the west.

What do you do when Hollywood takes over your tiny Maine village to make a movie?
Cassidy Beauvoir, chair of the board of overseers of Amity Landing, is ready to throw the bums out; that is, until she meets Jasper MacEwan, the director of American Waterloo: the Rout of the Penobscot Expedition. It’s instant attraction until a series of deadly incidents threatens their budding romance. Are the attacks directed at the movie crew or the townspeople?
As the two search for answers, the trail leads them to long-held secrets of the worst naval defeat of the American Revolution—including betrayal, murder, and a lost hoard of English gold.

Thank you Pamela. The desk is a beautiful antique, but when my house was flooded back in 2008 I thought I'd lost it. I found a fabulous cabinetmaker who re-built it.

Thanks for all your kind comments. I seem to have to go through all the robot stuff for every comment so I'm thanking all of you in one!
