The Elite Blog welcomes Author, Stephanie Hurt and her new book, Tuscany.

Hello, Stephanie.  Thank you for visiting the Elite blog.  Your new book, Tuscany has really piqued our interest and we'd like to know more about this exciting new title. Can you tell us how you got the idea behind it?

Sometimes, those secondary projects will turn out some great stuff.  Write about anything, anywhere.  It doesn't have to make sense, it just has to get you thinking differently and out of the box. 

I did this recently, and now have a sequel to Christmas at Wild Horse Ranch.  Pretty soon, you'll see Christmas and Wild Fire Ranch hit Amazon and all because I wasn't a…
