A former Brooklyn gal, Elaine Stock lives in the
Northeast with her husband where she enjoys spring, summer, autumn, and puts up with the winter. A member of several writing associations, she also is a contributing author to the international “Happy Sis Magazine.” In addition to Twitter, Facebook, and Goodreads, she hangs out on her active blog, Everyone’s Story, dedicated to uplifting and encouraging all readers through the power of story and hope. Please check out her new website.
Welcome, Elaine. If you could have dinner with one person from today or history (except Jesus) who would it be? Why?
There are so many extraordinary people that I’d love to sit down and chat with over dinner, ranging from world leaders, authors, movie stars, people from the Bible, all of my relatives from Day 1, but right now as I type this the one person that comes to mind is Helen Keller. I’d love to communicate with her on the subject of facing fears and the unknown and her faith in God.
Please describe yourself with three words.
Quiet (soul), loving, focused.
What do you enjoy most about writing?
Writing is freedom. It provides an escape, in that I wander away from my everyday life of complexities and wonders. It’s also totally liberating: I’ve been told to hush up once too often during my younger years and in my story worlds I can live through my characters and say and do what I want! Also, while writing I’m still amazed what comes together for me, not only in how a story plot may resolve itself but especially what I learn about others and myself. Writing is my happy remedy!
What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?
If readers enjoy Always With You, I’d really appreciate it if they can talk it up whether to suggest the book to a friend or a librarian or spread the word via social media such as a book review on Amazon or Goodreads. I’d also love to hear from you!
Please tell us a little about your novel, Always With You.
The premise is whether an innocent but naïve young woman and a man, who has been conditioned to hate, can love each other and accept God into their hearts.
Back Cover Blurb:
Can she move forward without knowing her past?
Will he enjoy his present if he can’t free himself from what he left behind?
In the heart of the Adirondacks, Isabelle lives in the shadow of a dark family secret whose silent burden strips her family of emotional warmth and faith in God. Tyler belongs to the religious sect called The Faithful, which Isabelle’s father dislikes immensely. Yet, because Tyler belongs to this group, Isabelle sees only a man devoted to his family and faith.
She wants it; she gets it; they marry.
And when the truth comes out, Isabelle faces two choices:
Staying could endanger her child.
Leaving could cost her life.

Any parting comment?
Heartfelt thanks, Jo, for hosting me on your lovely blog and giving me an opportunity for sharing my debut novel, Always With You. I hope your readers have enjoyed hearing about Isabelle and Tyler’s story.
Please leave a question you’d like readers to answer.
A reviewer describes Always With You as a “gritty story of redemption and reality mixed with credible characters in inspirational fiction.” Do you enjoy this type of story and usually what grips you when you’ve read such a story?
One commenter to this post will win a Kindle eBook copy of Always With You, which Elaine has offered. IF YOU COMMENT, PLEASE REMEMBER TO LEAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS SO I CAN CONTACT YOU IF YOU WIN THE BOOK DRAWING.
