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 Greetings! I’m Sorchia DuBois. I write urban fantasy, small-town mysteries, and paranormal romance. In my previous life, I taught English in rural communities and community colleges. While I still work for a virtual education provider (and business is booming during the pandemic), my true love is writing. I just finished an urban fantasy trilogy, which is on sale until January 22. I have a new trilogy in the works for 2021.
Interests When I’m not writing, I walk in the woods, garden, and do a little macrame. To tell the truth, when I’m not writing, I’m thinking about writing. My two-year-old granddaughter, Lily, is quickly becoming an obsession.
Network During the quarantine, I rely heavily on the Interwebs. I loiter and lurk and comment when I feel like I have something worth contributing. One of my goals this year is to be more visible both online and in reality, when that is possible. I’m getting over a small case of cancer which put me out of contact with most people for the past year. Now that I’m back, I’ll be renewing memberships and finding groups to join.
Desk: I just cleaned it for the new year, but that won’t last. I have cats and their prime directive from the Cat Overlords is to create chaos in my office. They love to knock things on the floor and sit directly on the document I need to see. They also enjoy lying on my desk and flicking their tails across the keyboard while I’m trying to work. Occasionally, they actually gallop across the keyboard which causes me to spend untold hours correcting what they type and finding my way out of the view or application they have somehow opened.
Generally, I have my desk calendar and planners open on separate surfaces with a cat snoozing in front of me. A cup of tea and a healthy snack of nuts and fruit and dark chocolate will be nearby though I sometimes replace the tea with a good single malt Scotch if I’m about to finish something or just for fun.
Outrageousness: I am a firebug and love bonfires which I have become adept at starting even in nasty weather. I am a trivia buff as well and have a store of useless information at my disposal. Sarcasm is my favorite thing, though, along with bad puns and word games. The only ones who get me are my kids which is nice. I have a new granddaughter who seems to be developing a sense of irony that I appreciate.
Window: I’m on the second story and my view is of a piney wood. It’s really perfect. The picture was taken on a dreary day, but it shows my leaf-covered yard. In summer, the trees are green and filled with birds. A memorable view happened on a day I was writing about a character who occasionally turns into a snake. One of the cats went on point and when I followed her gaze, I found a black snake crawling on the roof outside my window. Very weird. That day, Scotch was called for.
Thanks so much for reading. Happy New Year and here’s wishing for a peaceful and successful 2021 for us all.

Zoraida Grey Trilogy
How many Scottish witches does it take to destroy one small-town fortune teller?
The Zoraida Grey trilogy follows Zoraida from Arkansas to Scotland on a quest to retrieve a healing stone to save her granny’s life. But it seems Granny hasn’t told her everything. Soon Zoraida is smack dab in the middle of a witchy clan war and in danger of being ensorcelled by not one but two smoking hot witches. The truth of her own heritage is buried deep beneath Castle Logan. Trouble is the only one who strikes fear in the black hearts of the Logan witches has stepped in a steaming pile of Voodoo thousands of miles away in the Caribbean.
To save her granny and her best friend, Zoraida must decide between her old, safe life or a new one filled with magic and danger.
The task may be the end of her—or the beginning.
Start the adventure with Zoraida Grey and the Family Stones in which Zoraida discovers just what a mess Granny has let her in for. Continue the story in Zoraida Grey and the Voodoo Queen in which Zoraida journeys to the Yucatan Jungle to retrieve a Scottish wizard who turns out to be naked and painted blue. The trilogy ends with Zoraida Grey and the Pictish Runes as Zoraida returns to Castle Logan with vengeance on her mind.
