Feather Stone

Biography

During my career as a paramedic I came face to face with scenes most people would rather not think about. Having experienced life in the most deadly and gut wrenching events, and work alongside the police service, I have the fodder for creating intense novels. My creative DNA ran amok within two months after my first novel, The Guardian's Wildchild, was published. I couldn't believe there was this kind of story within me and desperate to be told. I resisted. It was futile.

When I gave in to the visions and inspirations, I knew that the first year would be taken up with studying Islam and the Muslim culture. After finding a most wonder imam and a Muslim physician, it was time to begin the research and write. After completing the first draft of Forbidden, I searched for police personnel who would be willing to guide me in ensuring all the police procedures were legit and believable. The final draft of Forbidden was completed after four years of editing, rewriting, and editing again. My goal has been to write an exciting story, one that is both plot and character driven. Also, I was most careful in presenting the Islam faith in a moderate and unbiased tone.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
My husband often remarked that our house was full of my projects ranging from redecorating rooms, needlework, painting a new watercolor masterpiece - all in various stages of completion. We also are home to two shelties and two cats and so traveling to shows or training sessions has been a major part of our life. My gardens are in a continuous state of renewal and experimentation. I've learned to play the piano, accordion, guitar. I promised my dear spouse to sing only while I'm in the shower :). We have traveled the world and were active snowmobilers riding mountains in Canada and USA - and racing. It's actually amazing I've stopped long enough from time to time to write two novels.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
My method has changed over the years. As my relationships with other authors has grown since becoming a published author, it is easier to find great books to read. I'm a stickler for fast paced thrillers. The author needs to keep my attention on the plot with dynamic characters. I like experimenting in finding new authors while blogging and posting articles on facebook. I've discovered that not all novels rated with five stars are winners in my view. My tastes demand high octane, while other readers enjoy the slow burn. It's all good. There are millions of amazing novels. So little time ....
