Arianna Eastland


Arianna Eastland is a native New Englander whose fascination with the Native-American culture and its history in her area led her to read everything she could on the subject. One book she read alleged that many Pilgrim women who were kidnapped and held for ransom by Native-American warriors opted not to return to their husbands because they became infatuated with their captors. This gave Arianna the idea for her first romance novel, TOO FAR TO WHISPER, set in 17th-Century New England. When she is not writing, Arianna enjoys hiking, traveling and art. She also confesses that one of her guilty pleasures is watching TV reality shows.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I enjoy the escapism. When I am writing, I am able to become part of another world, another time, and I temporarily can forget reality and whatever problems I might currently be having. The best part is I am the creator of the worlds in my books, so they can be anything I want them to be.
What are you working on next?
Currently, I'm sorry to say I'm not working on anything, mostly because of time restraints. I would love to earn enough money writing to devote all of my time to only that. Believe me, it would be a dream come true. But I currently am working two jobs and therefore, end up spending most of my free time trying to catch up on my sleep! I do have ideas for an additional book in the Corwin-Chandler series, where both Rosalind and Autumn return to Eastwell to reconnect with Rosalind's siblings, but I have no idea when I will be able to sit down and write it - unless I win the lottery and can quit my current jobs!
