Hearth Stone by Lois Greiman

5 autographed copies will be given away on Friday, February 19, 2016!

With her chance at the US equestrian team shattered by an injury, Sydney Wellesley arrives at the Lazy Windmill ranch angry and heartbroken. But the rugged red bluffs and wild high plains of the Black Hills inspire her to purchase land where she can train her own Olympic hopefuls. Everything’s going according to Sydney’s new life plan–until her funding suddenly dries up…

Alone in the ramshackle house she had planned to raze, Sydney is ready to admit defeat and slink back to civilization–until she discovers an injured mustang. Seeing herself in the desperate wild mare, she feels compelled to save the animal at all costs, little knowing that the horse just might return the favor. For as Sydney’s circle grows to include an autistic child, an earthy array of local characters, and hired help in the form of Hunter Redhawk, a man as indomitable as the land itself, she realizes that heroes are everywhere–and healing is the first step on the road to true happiness.

Exclusive interview with the author:

1) What are your hobbies?

I’m afraid I don’t have hobbies. But I do have a couple of obsessions. Horses being the first and foremost. I’ve been crazy about them since I first galloped out of the womb. I was raised on a cattle ranch in North Dakota where horses were a tool for working livestock. When I graduated high school I went straight to an Arabian horse farm to learn how to train and show. I’ve been competing in all kinds of equestrian events ever since: long distance races, pleasure classes, dressage, barrel racing. You name it, if it involves an animal I can ride, I’ll try it.

2) What is your favorite part of the writing process?

My favorite part of writing is constantly changing. Sometimes I love the first flush of an idea when it grabs you by the throat and won’t let you go. But right now I prefer the final draft, after I’ve really gotten to know the weird quirks and kinks of my characters. When every word they say makes them just a little more unique.

3) If you had a super power what would it be?”

If I could choose one super power it would be to make people laugh. We are so blessed in the country, and yet we let the stresses of the day drain our happiness. We really need to remember to enjoy the moment…and read a good book.

4) If you couldn’t be a writer, what job would you do?

Comedians fascinate me. I actually can’t imagine being able to stand up in front of people and make them laugh. It takes me five drafts and a vat of coffee to get my lines right. But it would be interesting to try. Maybe I could be a cowgirl comedian.

5) Do you have any memories from your childhood that you would like to share?

When I was a little girl, I had trouble learning to read. But my sister Cindy loved the written word. She would read everything to me…soup can labels, the Encyclopedia, children’s books, novels. Everything was fun when she brought it to life. One evening she read me a story about a dancing bear. Sometime after I went to sleep, she came into my room dressed in a bunch of ratty fur coats and danced at the end of my bed. In my sleepy state it was so surreal and magical I still remember it fifty years later. Imagination is a powerful thing.
