HELLO FRIENDS! Today I’m pleased to share an interview with Katerina King, current trilogy writer of witches!
Read below to hear more about her writing journey and where Katerina hopes to take her writing career!
What is the first thing you remember writing?
I love characters, I love getting to know, developing them, treating them as if they are real people. For some readers, they keep reading depending on the plot or pacing or if the grammar is good or not. But for me as long as the characters were life like and I can relate or connect with them I can keep reading the book and that’s what I hope to convey in my works.
What is your favorite thing to write about?
Witches! Which I guess isn’t shocking considering my entire series and the next eight books after it all have to do with them. Its been an obsession since I was young.
Tell me one of your writing goals.
Finish book two of my trilogy by February of 2020.
Have any particular writers inspired you?
Rick Riordan, which if you don’t know who that is, he is the author of the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus books.
Tell us about a favorite character you’ve created.
My favorite character that has walked into my headspace is Elijah Hutton and he is the best friend of my main character Scarlette Petrova. He is my favorite because there is such a complex nature to him, he grew up in an overly religious family that he thought was really tight but when he came out of the closet at seventeen he quickly learned that blood wasn’t always as thick as water.
Do you have any writing advice to share with us?
Just keep writing and don’t give up!
What’s the last book you read?
The last book I read… geez. A Twisted Fate by K. A Grayson
