Interview with Measha Stone, Author of Hound
22 Sep 2020
What can you tell us about your new release, Hound?
Hound is book four in my Ever After Series. It’s a stand alone novel loosely based on the story of Fox and the Hound. Jackson is like a hound with a bone, he won’t let go one he’s gotten a hold of it, and Kegan is sly like a fox. When they get together, sparks fly. He wants to know her secrets, and he won’t stop until he does.
What or who inspired you to become an author?
I’ve always wanted to be a writer, but I never thought it would be an actual possibility. My husband is to be credited with pushing me to start putting my work out there. Thanks to his encouragement, I went back to school for creative writing and then began my publishing journey.
Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask
Nora Roberts. She’s written an astounding number of novels; I’d love to ask her how she keeps her material fresh.
What’s your favorite thing about writing?
The escape it gives me. I’m honest that I don’t write my stories for my readers. I write for myself and just have fun with the stories. Thankfully, readers enjoy the journeys of my characters as much as I do.
What is a typical day like for you?
I’m a pretty structured person, so unless there is an appointment or meeting that I have to attend it’s pretty standard every day. Get up and get dressed first thing, feed the dog, make sure the kids are up for school, have breakfast and coffee. Nothing important happens until I’ve had my coffee. I homeschool my son, so that takes up the morning. The afternoon I spend with my daughters helping with homework or just hanging out. I work in the late afternoons either writing, doing business stuff or both, then spend the rest of the night with the family.
What scene from Hound was your favorite to write?
The hunt. I love writing pet play because the characters can have so much fun with it. And being hunted down by Jackson in the woods sounds like an amazing way to spend an afternoon.
Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?
Make it a great day! – While other mom’s send their kids off to school with a “have a great day” I tell mine to “Make it a great day!”. It helps remind me that I’m in control of my day, and I can make it as great as I want.
