Q&A Sara Jane Stone, author of the "Second Shot" series
Can't wait for our Avon Books 75th Anniversary Event? Check out our Q&A with author Sara Jane Stone who will be at the event on Friday, October 28th at 7pm!
1) How did you come to write the Second Shot Series?
After I completed the Independence Falls series, I wanted to write another group of stories set in Oregon's Timber country. I love writing military romance and though it would be interesting to write a collection of stories that offer a before and after look at a group of friends who join the military.
2) What are you currently reading?
I recently listened to First Start I See Tonight by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. I loved every minute of it! I'm a huge fan of the Chicago Stars series and I enjoyed spending time with some of my favorite characters. And the heroine, Piper was so much fun!!
3) Is there anything you are particularly looking forward to the publication of?
I have a long, long list of favorite authors. There is always another great release or new series on the horizon:)
4) What’s next? Any upcoming book projects in the works that you can tell us about?
I recently started a new series that I hope to publish in 2017. While I love military romance, this new set of stories feature billionaire heroes and modern, fairy-tale heroines. I'm still in the early stages, but I'm having so much fun developing the characters. I've quizzed some of my younger sister's friends for their take on modern dating in the age of Tinder and other dating apps.
