Take A Peek
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 am I? Former teacher who still volunteers, reading books to kids on Zoom. Writer fighting to organize too much, as my father used to say. Honey to my sweetie. Great friend. Miss my family. I’m in Florida, they’re in New England.
Interests are discovering that unexpected, special book, a swoon worthy read. Sharing fun resources of all kinds with friends, dancing outdoors (not kidding) and lots of walks.
Networking with my writer friends is a big deal. My other support system are my friends from forever.
Desk? It’s a mess. I’m not kidding about that challenge. Recently asked friend writers how they organize. I have the “if it’s not in front of me I’ll forget to do it” syndrome. Did I mention I’m in love with my 32” monitor?
Outrageous fun is dancing. I’m desperate to go dancing. Hence the outdoor dancing to canned music at the local shopping center. Yes, it’s partner dancing, so two dancing fools.
Window. Mine looks onto a small courtyard and there’s a little Heidi-like figure sitting on the bench. Squirrels and geckos and birdies visit.
Outside Shirley's window.

He knows he's sending Dana mixed messages. Alex panics when he thinks he's blown his chance with his special person. From appetizers to the main course will these two cooking buddies make it to dessert?
Funny and bittersweet, Dana and Alex's story will have you rooting for them.
