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: Most people look in the mirror daily and pay little attention to the person looking back at them. Making sure the face is clean, made up or shaved, they ignore the who behind the staring eyes. I take a closer look. I see the mother, daughter, wife, and sister. I am these things yet, there is more. I am a hopeless romantic, nature lover, and a dreamer. I find things either right or wrong with only a few shades of grey. Those gray parts are the most interesting. Here you find conflict, motivation, and flights of fancy.
Interests: I love birds and spend much time watching them from my dining room window. My favorite places are the beach and mountains. I enjoy the sound of children’s laughter. I love animals (not snakes because my name means Eve). I like to play board games. Anything Science, grabs my attention. I love John Wayne movies-my favorites are Mcklintock and Hatari.
Network-support system- My family is my support system along with my best friend. We text, talk, and face time each other all the time. We mostly live far apart and don’t get to visit often. When my sisters and I get together we finish each other’s sentences and laugh until we cry. My best friend is my strength. She’s always there for me in good times and bad.
Desk description: One word could describe my desk—cluttered. I have files, books, loose papers, numerous pens and Diet coke. I’m addicted to it and can’t write without it. There’s an occasional cup of coffee and tubs of gum. I have eight thumb-drives and barely remember to use one.
Outrageous talent: This is truly weird. If someone in my family is sad or angry and nothing cheers them up, I go all Southern on them, tilt my head and bat my lashes like a Southern Belle. I always get a smile or chuckle. I started doing this when my son was two. He’s still a sucker for it.
Window outside: I have lots of bird feeders hanging outside my window. I have an abundance of cardinals, yellow and rosy finches, chickadees, and sparrows. I can see them from my dining room table. I often enjoy and meal while watching my winged friends. I also get rabbits, squirrels, and opossums beneath my feeders.

The Wild Rose Press
Tiponi Two hundred years into the future, the world faces an impending and devastating event, the eruption of a super volcano beneath Yellowstone, home of the Kahoti Tribe. They are caretakers of a sacred pipe that symbolizes the ancient covenant between the tribes and White Mesa Woman—the matriarch of their tribe. She promises to return when she is needed.
Powaqa, an albino child, is born, and when her mother dies Grandfather (The Great Spirit) sends Hania, her spirit warrior, a wolf, to protect the baby. Once she is twenty and renamed Tiponi, Hania learns she is destined to be his mate and is the reincarnation of White Mesa Woman. She must complete her own quests in order to enact the change, but will it happen in time to bring back the sacred pipe when it is stolen or stop the volcano from destroying all they hold dear?

Okay, now you just want to stare so here's her
I’m still trying to get used to the title, “author.” I’ve just published my first book, with The Wild Rose Press, A Soldier’s Honor. I am a reader first, and as such, I demand a well written work that catches my attention and pulls me in. When I write, I like to picture myself in the book, with everything happening to me. I have a great sense of humor and incorporate this into my characters.
Writing has given me the opportunity to tell the stories that keep popping up inside me. Whether it’s Romantic Suspense, Mystery, or Science Fiction, I love to dive right in and explore the possibilities.
I taught Biology and Science for twenty eight years. In my novels, I call upon that experience when writing vivid descriptions of nature. Writing is very similar to teaching. You need to make a plan, keep it interesting, and use discipline for everything to work.
