That night was bittersweet for sure, but it hasn’t dulled my love for Christmas, only reminded me that I have the power to help it shine–for myself and my family

Wednesday, December 19th, 2018

 

Stephanie Worlton is an author, designer, gabber, and sugar addict! She was raised in the suburbs of Salt Lake City where she developed a passion for the creation of space, color, and design. Her love of design drove her to pursue a degree in architecture. Her love of family pulled her home to be a mom.  She enjoys hanging out with her family, reading, writing, making massive project lists, doing remodeling and building projects, playing in the dirt, and snuggling with her dogs. She collects power tools, camera equipment, shoes (though barefoot is always best!), and books.

 

 
 
 
 
 
Ali Cross, the award-winning author of the Desolation Series, has always had a flare for the dramatic. As a child she organized backyard performances of classic plays and musicals and hosted tea parties for invisible friends and pets dressed in doll clothes. Her teens were a haze of boys, drama (of the real life variety), and music. So it really didn’t come as a surprise to anyone that the girl her family called a dreamer, ended up writing drama—with angels, demons, and other supernatural creatures thrown in for fun.
After university, Ali traveled from the Great White North to the Utah desert for love and now entertains her devoted husband, almost-grown twin sons and adorable yorkies with her wacky song renditions and random movie lines. As the only female in the house she considers this her right and her duty.
Never one to conform to expectations, Ali enjoys writing in multiple genres:
Ali Cross books for young adult paranormal romance; Ali Banks Cross books for middle grade adventures; and Ali M. Cross for inspirational romance. She promises to entertain you no matter which of her books you pick up.

TARA C. ALLRED
Award-winning Author

I had lots of imaginary friends when I was five years old, and I guess you could say some of those friends never left me. In fact along the way, I picked up some more imaginary friends who have had lots to say.
I love watching stories unfold. And some of those stories seem worth sharing with you.
So, I have written a few books. And have several more in the works.
Meanwhile, some of my books have won some awards. And even more importantly, my books have made friends with some wonderful and supportive readers. I absolutely love it when a reader connects with one of my stories.
Stacy Lynn Carroll has always loved telling stories. She started out at Utah State University where she pursued a degree in English, learned how to western swing, and watched as many of her fellow students became ‘True Aggies’.  She then finished her BA at the University of Utah where she got an emphasis in creative writing.  
 
After college she worked as an administrative assistant, where she continued to write stories for the amusement of her co-workers. When her first daughter was born, and with the encouragement of a fortune cookie, she quit her job and became a full-time mommy and writer. 
 
Eight books and four small kids later, Stacy has truly learned the necessary skills of balance and time management. Dr. Pepper and chocolate also help. She and her husband live in Utah with their four children and three dogs. Bear Lake is her favorite place to write.

 

Are you ready to fall in love? 
 
Take the chill out of winter with four new multi-genre romances from best-selling and award-winning authors Tara C. Allred, Stacy Lynn Carroll, Ali M. Cross, and Stephanie Connelley Worlton. 
 
From heart-warming traditions to heart-pounding suspense, this cozy collection of toe-tingling first kisses set in Utah’s North Pole (aka Bear Lake) will leave you feeling cheerful and bright.

 

 

Snippet from 
Stolen Kisses by Ali M. Cross:
He was right—her hair was dark. Nearly black, actually. She was white, but there was a slight warmth to her skin and with her coal-dark eyes, straight black hair and long, straight nose, he was pretty sure she might be part Native American. She was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.
“You guys can hang your coats up there,” the petite girl said, pointing to the coat rack by the door. “Your timing is perfect. We were just getting started.”
“Glad to see you made it to your destination safely,” Bent said, offering the girl what he hoped would be a kind smile. There was something about her, something wild but skittish. He’d never been around horses or anything, but she made him think of wild horses. Curious, but scared, too. “I’m Bentley. But everyone calls me Bent.”
“I’m—”
“Mel. I remember. Is that short for Melanie?”
She shrugged and threw him a coy glance. “Call me Mel. But why do you go by Bent?”
Bent chuckled. “I’m Bentley Brown.” He leaned over the couch that stood between them and offered his hand. “And yes, I’m named after the car.”
She shook his hand. He liked the press of her small, warm palm against his and he was disappointed when she broke the contact.
“I like Bentleys.”
Oh, she could flirt, could she? Bent took off his coat and hung it up without taking his eyes off Mel. “Mel suits you. It’s tough. Like you.”
She laughed and looked down, shaking her head. “Oh, I’m anything but tough.”
He looked at her sideways. “You sure about that?”
Q&A With Ali M. Cross: 
1.  Describe yourself in 50 words or less.
Quirky and fun (or dorky and lame, but I’m going with “quirky and fun”). Sun worshipper, happiness enthusiast, believer in hope and magic. Devoted mom to twin 18yo sons and two adorable yorkies, and happy wife to the love of my life. 
2. What do you love most in the world?
God and my family.
3. What inspired you to become an Author?
Stories that moved me and inspired me. I wanted to be a part of that.
4. What is your favorite Winter / Holiday tradition?
My favorite Christmas tradition is we have a little basket we set on the mantel along with some yarn strips to represent “hay”. For every good turn during the holiday season (from Thanksgiving to Christmas), we each fill the basket or “creche” with yarn until by Christmas Eve, we have a nice soft bed ready for Jesus. Before we go to sleep, we gather around and sing “Silent Night.” I’ll put out the porcelain Jesus in his bed, then on Christmas morning, before we open presents, we’ll sing “Oh Come, All Ye Faithful”. Helps us to slow down a little bit and remember the “reason for the season.” ❤️ 
5. What is your trick for getting past writer’s block? And what advice do you have for other authors who are struggling to tell their story?
My trick is to keep on writing! I’ll literally write “blah blah blah” or just free write–in my MS–until the words pick up the story again. OR, I’ll jump ahead to a part of the story I DO feel inspired to write. If neither of those tactics work, then I’ll for a walk, or do something else that fills my creative well. My best advice is to not be overly hard on yourself if the words won’t flow…but also to give yourself a chance to open that spigot by sitting down and writing ANY words, even if they aren’t the right ones.
6. Now that we’ve gotten to know each other, tell me a story. It can be long or short. From your childhood or last week. Funny, sad, or somewhere in between. Just make sure it’s yours. What’s your story?

 

My parents divorced when I was four years old. I remember one Christmas Eve when Daddy was coming to see me, AND I was singing a solo in the Christmas Eve mass that night. I wanted my mom and dad to come hear me sing as I’d never done a solo before and even my mom had never heard me. I think I was about ten. I sang “O Come, O Come, Emanuel”, and I remember how, standing in the choir box, my voice carried across the cathedral and the elegance of the procession beneath me. It was a powerful moment in my little life. A real “core memory”. I discovered my sister had come to hear me, but no one else. We rushed home because Dad was there–only to find that he had come and gone. He hadn’t wanted to hear me sing, or to even stay and see me. Everyone else got to see him except for me. And Mom was crying. It was another core memory. These two extremes on one night had a powerful impact on me. Now, I try very hard to always let my sons know that they are loved and that what’s important to them is important to me. That night was bittersweet for sure, but it hasn’t dulled my love for Christmas, only reminded me that I have the power now to help it shine–for myself and my family.

The fall of Orion was the prophecy all of Earth awaited, but when the constellation vanished instead of the great ruling ship of the overlords, chaos fell across the savage land.

Zyla had always felt a connection to the constellation. While experts were busy speculating about vanishing star systems, astronomical impact, and the longevity of the battle that began as a result, Zyla started searching for Orion because, if the nightmares she kept having come true, they were in desperate need of a hero.

Shadows 
By Joan De LA Haye 
Genre: Psychological Horror

What would you do if you thought you were losing your mind?
What would you do if all those nightmares you thought were in your mind, were real?
Out of the shadows comes a nightmare feeding on fear.
Out of the shadows comes a demon bent on torment and death.
Could you survive a demon bent on driving you to suicide?“If you’re open to reading a book that is genuinely disturbing, in some cases distasteful, and creepy as hell, then I’m pretty sure you’ll ‘enjoy’ Shadows.” – Dave de Burgh, author of Betrayal’s Shadow“Dark, twisted and creepy, Shadows will take you out of your comfort zone and keep you glued to the pages of the book, regardless of whether or not you want to.” – Tammy February, Women24.com“Frankly, the psychological horror that is found in Shadows will make any person feel ill at ease, which means I loved it.” – Monique Snyman, Tentacle Books“If you like your horror as warped as it gets, you’ll love this genuinely scary page-turner. I’m looking forward to reading what she does next – although I suspect I’ll be reaching for the sominex afterwards.” – Something Wicked

Out of the Dark and Into the Pit?

Thursday, July 16th, 2015
Holli Anderson, tell us where you were born and where do you live now.
I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah and I now live in Grantsville, Utah–the same place I’ve lived (mostly) since I was 10 years old.
What makes you passionate about writing?
It’s a great way to escape the reality of life. It’s such a great feeling to create something entirely from my own mind. When my characters start to head down a storyline I never intended–that’s exciting stuff! I have so many ideas for new books and new storylines for my current series–I wish I had more time to write.

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

Hello, Patty. Tell us what makes you passionate about writing?PLarsen_049

The voices in my head. The stories they want to tell drive me almost constantly. I have to be very careful what I ask for—new ideas and new characters seem to appear out of nowhere when I let my guard down. Not that I’m complaining. I love what I do. And being able to write for a living, what I’ve always wanted, fires me up like nothing else.

 

Amen to that. Do you have a writing routine?

I’m a super organized person. Have to be or (more…)

Jessica and Briana co-authored Seeking the Storyteller an interview

Monday, June 30th, 2014

Ok Girls, how long have you been writing?

 

Jessica: I’ve been writing on and off for years.  I don’t remember my first story or when I started, but the earliest one I can remember with any detail was a fanfiction for Bucky O Hare and the Toad Wars back in the early 90’s, I might have written some horrible Star Trek stuff before that.

923179_505218142859054_986057935_n

Briana:  I have a clear memory of writing back when I was 9 years old.  It was a pop up book made with construction paper and crayons and featured farm animals.  I have no idea what the story itself was about, but I remember those details.  I’ve been writing on and off ever since, from fanfiction to what I write now.

 

Tell us where you were born and where do you live now.

Jessica: I was born in Missouri but moved to Minnesota shortly after.  I’ve grown up for most of my life in Minnesota around the Twin Cities.  Currently I live in St Paul with my partner and sometimes coauthor.

 

Briana:  I was born in Chicago and grew up there or in the suburbs nearby for 18 years of my life.  I left home to go to Iowa State University, where I met Jessica online, and after graduation in 2006 I moved to Minnesota to be with her.  We live together in St. Paul right now with our cats and geeky things.

 

How do you know the idea is good enough to write a book about it?

Jessica:  All ideas (more…)
