Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’m Stella Marie Alden, and as of today, I have written FIVE books in the last year. I just started my sixth, with co-author, Chantel Seabrook.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My last book, is ‘How To Seduce a Queen.’ I am always inspired by women who are strong, and survive despite traumatic pasts.

I think Tolkien and Shakespeare have been my biggest influences. Then, after that, I love Nora Roberts, and a host of romance authors. Basically, my favorite romance, is the one I am reading.
What are you working on now?
I just started ‘Dark Tide’, the third in the ‘Mated by Magic’ trilogy.
Here is the blurb:
There’s a dangerous magic brewing in the South Pacific, and Maya O’Connor is certain it involves the handsome fire witch renting out her family’s private island. He’s dark, brooding, and sexy as sin. With a single touch, she knows he’s her perfect match.
Having suffered more than his fair share of heartbreak, Josh Fialko seems determined to destroy himself and everyone close to him. A fatal love match left him shattered beyond repair. Now, he wants nothing to do with mating, especially not with the fiery little water witch who’s intent on stealing his heart.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Newsletters, by far.
