Today I have a fellow InkSpell author visiting. She’s an avid reader (fantasy is her favorite!) and a gifted author. By day she works as a freelance instructional and graphic designer with my husband. She’s also the devoted mother of to two little boys under the age of six.
Thanks so much for visiting with me Stephanie!
ME: What was the first book you read that grabbed you? What genre? Who is the author?
S.K: Gone With the Wind, Fiction, Margaret Mitchell
ME: Is there an author that you get fan-girl crazy over? Have you ever met him/her? Do you want to?
S.K: No, I’m not really a girly-girl so I don’t have it in me. I would really like to meet J.K. Rowling, though!
ME: What’s your:
- Favorite color? red
- Favorite season? fall
- Favorite Hero – movie or book? Harry Potter
- Snack weakness (food or drink)? Powdered Sugar Donuts
- What’s your Astrological sign? Cancer
- Do you write sweet and cuddly or toe-curling steamy lovin’ stories? Neither! Tortured emotionally repressed love stories!
- Do you read sweet and cuddly or toe-curling steamy lovin’ stories? No, tortured emotionally repressed love stories.
ME: What’s on your desk when you write?
S.K: Coffee, my laptop, and pictures of my kids.
ME: Do you write to music or quiet? If you do write with music, can you share one song that’s significantly impacted this story? I always write to music!
S.K: Into the Fire by Thirteen Senses had a big impact on The Star Child.
ME: What’s your favorite line from your most recent release? Why?
S.K: “I won’t leave you, no matter what the damn prophecy says.” It’s about someone taking their life into their own hands and choosing for themselves. Too often, we make choices for other people, either based on what they want or what they think we should do. In this line from The Star Child, Kellen takes a stand for what he wants.
M: What’s next? You don’t have to get specifics – but feel free to leave a tantalizing snippet or cryptic hook.
S.K: I’m beginning the editing process for the second book in The Star Child series, The Fallen Stars. It’s a bit too early to give away snippets, but let’s just say that it is not all happy endings for Kellen and Calienta. In fact, it’s just getting started. Readers will get to know other characters, like Stephen, Dillion, and Gabe. Plus, there are a few new characters.
ME: Who is your favorite character from Greek Mythology OR which Olympian would you want to be? And why?
S.K: Mnemosyne, the goddess of words and inventiveness! The perfect goddess for a writer to have around.
