MY INTERVIEW FOR MY BOOK, “A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE” FROM ALL THESE BOOKS

Posted by lmstephenson on July 12, 2008

BIOGRAPHY OF LEEANNE MARIE STEPHENSON

RN and Author of

“A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE”

 

            My introduction into the world of medical professionals started at the age of six.  I was diagnosed with “brittle diabetes”, and spent the majority of my childhood in the hospital.  Doctors, nurses, and nutritionists impressed me with their patience, sensitivity and positive can do attitudes.  They taught me how to balance my food intake and insulin injections so I could lead a “somewhat” normal life.  The professionalism these people displayed made me realize that I wanted to be part of this care giving community.  Therefore, I became a Registered Nurse.  After graduating with honors from Mercy Central School of Nursing, (Grand Rapids, MI), I secured a position as a Registered Nurse at Blodgett Hospital, (Grand Rapids, MI).  Over the next ten years, I married my high school sweetheart and started a family.  Periodically I changed jobs to meet the demands of parenthood and family life. 

Then my life took a dramatic turn as I was diagnosed with kidney failure due to my diabetes.  The prognosis was less than promising.  As my physical condition deteriorated, I was forced to give up my career as a nurse.  Fatigue and weakness encompassed my entire world as I underwent dialysis treatments.  Once again, I was on the receiving end of medical care.  Desperate and determined to still be part of this wonderful profession, I started writing a romance novel based on the experiences I had encountered as a nurse.  When the days that lie ahead of me seemed impossible to face, I did not allow my tears to compromise my strength.  Instead of giving up, during the darkest time in my life, I drew on the love that surrounded me from my wonderful husband and family to write this loving story. When I wrote, I was released from my physical problems and taken back into the world of nursing, which I loved so much.  Romantic stories can always release us from the problems of real life.  They send us into a fantasy world where our imaginations can soar.  I strove to take my readers and myself into that world.  Thus was born my book, “A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE”.

This book is so very special because it represents the strong love I had surrounding me, and what I could accomplish because of it, during the lowest point in my life.

 The one driving force in my life was to be there for my family, especially my precious children.  I had to continue and be a strong role model for them. I demonstrated to them that when adversity is overwhelming, you still have to endure. Getting ahead in a difficult situation requires an avid faith in oneself.  I did just that by reaching deep inside myself and drawing on my core values of perseverance and unfaltering resolve to overcome the obstacles in my life and achieve one of my dreams!

After a year on dialysis, I was told I could have a kidney transplant.  My wonderful brother stepped forward and gave me the gift of life.   From that moment on, my whole world changed for the better and I eagerly embraced this second chance at life.  When I felt well enough, I set about getting my romance story published, so I could be an inspirational example of what can be accomplished when life seems overwhelmingly hopeless!  Unfortunately, I recently learned that my transplanted kidney is deteriorating.  I hope and pray that I am able to showcase my story to others before my health gets too bad.

“Nicole looked into Travis’s piercing blue eyes and gasped upon seeing the depth of passion and desire reflected in them. With a moan, Travis’s mouth came down possessively upon her soft yielding lips. She sighed and molded her body into his, letting go of her self control.” This is just an example of the passion that exists between the two characters! Serious hospital scenarios, a world of wealth and prestige, and current relationships, shed doubts and uncertainties that send this gripping tale of romance into many intriguing twists and turns!!!  I highly recommend reading this book.  It is a compelling spell binding tale of romance!

ALL ABOUT THE HUNKY HERO IN MY BOOK, “A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE”

Posted by lmstephenson on April 25, 2008

Okay — its time to tell us about that hunky hero in your book.

What’s his name?

Dr. Travis Anderson

Why did you pick that name?

Travis seemed to be a virile sexy name for a man.  I chose Anderson because it has a Swedish origin, which emulates his looks.

Give us a brief description of how he looks.

Powerful, well muscled, handsome athletic build. Intriguing rugged face, presenting with deep set, piercing blue eyes, a fine straight nose, and a wickedly charming smile.  He has a tall, confident stride. His manner is always self assured and confident.  He exudes a virile appeal!!  Whew!!

Is there anything unusual about his appearance?

His unruly sandy colored hair!

Who does he love?  Why?

He loves Head Nurse, Nicole Danley.  They start out with a special camaraderie, working side by side in life and death hospital scenarios.  This turns into a deep all consuming love.  Her deep concern and compassion for her patients emulates his feelings.  Then there is the electric sparks and chemistry flying between them with any sort of intimate contact!!

Does this person love him? 

Nicole tries hard to fight back her desires for Travis, but he overrides this as he becomes the hero many times over in different scenarios.  She loves his sincerity and compassion for his patients and knows deep down that everything will be okay whenever he is around.

Tell us about his family. Are they important to him?

His father had been a famous orthopedic surgeon.  He had invested wisely making the scope of his wealth grow.  Then tragedy struck when his parents died in a plane crash returning from a medical conference in Paris.  Travis’s older sister, Liz, took over and raised him.  She married Wade, a lawyer with political ambitions which turns into underhanded schemes and plots to transport him to the Presidency.  This situation among others lends the many twists and turns to this pulse quickening love story.

Where is he from?

He is from Ada, Michigan.  It is a wealthy community.  He resides in a  magnificent mansion overlooking the rippling Thornapple River.

Does his hometown affect his behavior, thoughts and attitude? 

Although he was born and raised in a world of wealth and prestige, he also was taught to care for others.  Being around his father who was a doctor, embedded this caring attitude into his very soul, thus making him want to become a doctor also.

What does he want out of life?

He wants to make his father proud by being the best doctor.  He tuly desires a family of his own, since his family life was so wonderful when his parents were alive.  He desires a wife that he can love and share his life with, as his mother and father did.  They were excellent role models for him!

What’s his biggest secret? (Only share if it isn’t a spoiler in the story.)

Sorry, it would be a spoiler!

Did you write more than one story about him?

I am currently working on a sequel to ,”A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE”, In which Travis will……………..

How would he describe you?

He would describe me to be a lot like the heroine in my book, Nicole.  OF course I patterned a lot of her personality and actions after my own as I worked as an RN in the hospital.  You could say that a lot of scenarios and people in the book came from the real life experiences I had!!

Is there anything else about your hero that we need to know? Feel free to share.

“His emotions become centered around his love for Nicole, but being a realist, he knows that hope and love have a dangerous tendency to surge out of control, sweeping away the best built defenses and opening the way to risks of unbearable disappointment.”  This is just a glimpse into Travis’s thought process!
