Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up about 50 miles south of Atlanta, Georgia. A lot of my childhood influences my writing. I grew up in the country and I still live on the same country road. I grew up around cowboys, country folk and just down right good people. Living in a small town is a wonderful experience. You know everybody and everybody knows you. This can be good or bad, according to the situation.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing stories when I was 13. That's right around the time I picked up my first romance novel. I've loved anything romance ever since. I would fill up notebooks with my stories. Some I'd finish, but others I'd lose interest. Those books are in my cedar chest and I cherish them. Several of the books I've published come from the stories I've worked on for years.

    This was a very touching book. It was nice to read a clean romance that kept you riveted. This was my first time reading this authors work, but it got me hooked. Just finished the Travers series. Awesome read.

    This was a great read. I was riveted from the start. I had to see what happened with the daughter. It was well written and I look forward to reading the next installment.
  • In the Dark on Aug. 29, 2012

    This short, too short book was great. I was amazed how much I learned about the characters in such a short story. I would love to hear about the before story and especially the after. Look forward to more from this author.
  • Raining In My Heart on Aug. 01, 2013

    This is a powerfully beautiful romance. The characters were well written and you felt like you knew them. I never lost interest in the story as it kept you involved all the way to "THE END". I look forward to the next installment. Thanks again Mrs. Hestand for yet another wonderful romance.
