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."

Ciana Stone interview On 27, Jun 2018

"Author Ciana Stone grew up in a small town and likes to base her stories in similar places and characters on people she knew while growing up. She never decided to become a writer; she just started writing one day and never stopped. Stone has been an avid reader since always and says she can never pick a favorite book for it only remains her favorite until she reads the next. Finding joy in reading and writing, Ciana says that ‘The Horse Whisperer’ broke her heart. Writing wonderful romance novels for a while now, Ciana says that she looks up tp her ‘honey-man’ as she calls him, as inspiration for her romance.
A lover of small town heroes and military men, Stone is going to start writing a new series- The Men of Cotton Creek which will be set in the same world as Honky Tonk Angels and Heartbreakers & Heroes."
Where did you grow up? Do you think it has an impact on what you write and the way you develop your characters?

I grew up in a small southern town, where my Mama owned the local "beauty shop" and pretty much everyone knew everone. It does have an impact on my writing because I like to set my series in small towns and have characters that remind me of people I grew up with and the adults we kids watched growing up.

What is your fondest childhood memory?

Sneaking out of my best friend's window after her parents were asleep and walking to town where we explored the entire place - every street and alley. We looked in shop windows, climbed up fire escapes and hid when we saw the one police car drive by. It was fabulous and we made it home safely without getting caught. Or so we thought until the next morning. Still, it was worth it.

Where did you go to college? What did you study? Why did you decide to become a writer thereafter?

I went to a few in NC and ended up with degrees in Nutrition and Naturopathy. I didn't really decide to become a writer. I just started writing one day and never stopped.

Tell us about your family. How critical are they of your writing?

My family is very supportive. Since I write romance, the guys don't read my books and we have far more men than women. Still, they support me and cheer me on.

You’ve always been a reader. Which is your favorite book? Why?

I honestly don't have A favorite book. I have favorite books of the day or week, until I read my next favorite. There are a couple of books that have stuck in my mind longer than others, like Eric Van Lustbader's The Ninja. That book swept me into a culture I'd never experienced and a way of life that was so fascinating and tragic as well. The Horse Whisperer made me cry like I'd just lost my dog. Seriously. Ugly crying, you know what I mean. It Broke. My. Heart.

And waaaaay before all that, The Carpetbaggers (which some lady left in my Mama's beauty shop and I snuck home with me.) . Wow, that was an awakening into a more adult world for sure.

But the book that started it all was Of Mice and Men. Oh my god, I cried for a week. Still cry over that.

What does reading and writing mean to you?

JOY

You used to spend your money on buying a book every week. What do you feel about the change in the way people read where they have shifted from physical books to digital ones?

I think the biggest change is that there are so many options. There are a LOT of free books out there, so if you can' afford to buy one, you can always find a freebie. Likewise, there are a ton of $.99 books available, and libraries are still open so our options are greater than they were even a decade ago. I believe that people who love to read will aways find a way to get their hands on a book, print or digital because we simply love to lose ourselves in good takes.

You write in the romance genre. Which couple do you look up to when it comes to fulfilling their promises in love?

That's a tough one, because aside from myself, there's no one in my family that's had happily-ever-after. So I guess I'd say my honey-man. He always fulfills his promises and aways surprises me with new depths of his love.

Heartbreakers & Heroes Book 4- Deacon Johns was recently published and was received a warm welcome from the readers. Does the series continue after this book?

Yes, Book 5 is now out. Brody Judge. I was nervous as a worm in hot ashes over that one, but its reception has been overwhelmingly positive for which I am very grateful. I'm currently finished up Book 6 in the series.

What inspired the story of the series- Heartbreakers and Heroes?

I love small town heroes, but also military men and wanted to write another series set in the fictional town of Cotton Creek, Texas where people who follow me, have come to know characters. I like hanging on to that "everyone knows everyone" feeling and also the curiousity, gossip and general excitement new people can stirr up in a small town.

Which of your books, until now, has been the most challenging one to write? Why?

Mason James. The heroine in it, Savannah, had something really horrible happen to her as a child and I mean H O R R I B L E - a type of abuse by a family member. Writing about it was one of the hardest things I've ever done.

If you could date or marry one male character from one of your books, who would he be? Why?

Wiley Johns, hands down. He's "all that" and a bag of chocolate chip cookies. Strong, loyal, a bad ass and sexy as sin and a man who loves with his whole heart

Your male characters are sexy, hard to get men. What inspires you to build them this way?

I think women are attracted to men that are not all that easily obtainable. A guy whose too easy to get never seems to have the same appeal.

Which is the next project you are working on? Is this one going to be a series as well?

As soon as I finish the 6th book in my Heartbreakers & Heroes series, I am going to start a new series - The Men of Cotton Creek. This series will be set in the same world as Honky Tonk Angels and Heartbreakers & Heroes sine my readers seem to like having "familar faces" and a place they feel they know.
