But first, my interview with Kate.
Fiona: Lots of writers are creative in other ways, too. If you weren’t so busy writing, what other creative thing would you do instead?
Kate: When I take a break from writing I love to knit and I have gardens both on the alpine hillside behind my house and at my warehouse. I also enjoy cooking and suffer under the illusion that I play recognizable songs on the guitar.
Fiona: Why do you write in your chosen genre? Do you have others in mind? favorite?
Kate: I am currently writing primarily erotic romance. But that’s just because those are the stories that have occurred to me. My very favorite genre is end of the world – well, end of the world as we know it. I have a few shorts in that genre, but hope to write more later. I love the shifting of priorities that a complete reality shift cause.
Fiona: There’s so much to the writing business than just writing books. How do you juggle all the “behind the scenes” work–the edits with your editors, the blogging and social networking with your fellow authors at different publishing houses, the interaction with readers…and still find time to write?
Kate: Isn’t that hard? I also edit and am a co-owner of Got Romance Reviews. Sometimes it’s like the writing part of this world is the reward for all the other hard work. I try to write a little every day, no matter what else demands my time.
Fiona: When you were a kid, what did you want to be “when you grew up?”
Kate: An author. It just took me a really long time to get around to doing it.
Fiona: If you got a seven-figure, multi-book deal tomorrow, what would be the first thing you’d do?
Kate: Makes my head spin. Because the first thing wouldn’t have to be the most practical thing I suppose…I’d buy a house on the beach. I always feel happiest there.
Fiona: What’s the weirdest thing in your garage/basement/shed/other dedicated storage area right now? (heh-heh-heh… and don’t say rotten calamari!)
Kate: A coffin
Fiona: Finally, tell us a little bit about your new release!
Kate: Confessions from the Carnivore Club: Dave and Nancy’s Story is the first in a series I have planned about the residents of a small town who lead double lives, belonging to a wild fetish club. It’s such a small town, all the local kinks belong to the same club and their stories are all demanding to be told. Dave and Nancy are a nice engaged couple, but Dave’s leading a double life and Nancy is about to find out.
Thanks for dropping in today, Kate! And I’ll see you next week again on the 1Romance Ebooks Blog Tour, when I bring up the caboose as the last blog standing! 🙂
