Kristin, it is pure pleasure to have you visit my blog today! Would you care to share a bit of your love story?
My love of story started with a pretty lonely childhood. My brother had two open heart surgeries when I was a child, so I spent a lot of time at my grandmother’s entertaining myself. I’m still doing that. When my children were younger, I used to make up rambling bedtime stories and I just find it the artform that teaches me. I can watch and learn from characters in ways I can’t perhaps see my own faults. I use the fiction now to ask questions about the way people work.
A Billion Reasons Why is a charming romantic (almost a comedy) novel, where did the idea for this book come from?
I’m attracted to societies in romance. If a story is just about the hero and heroine, it doesn’t interest me nearly as much as their whole world. Romance always involves more than simply two people and I like seeing how a couple interacts with their world around them. What’s ultimately attractive about romance is that everyone longs to be accepted and loved for exactly who they are.
How fun is it to write light hearted romance/ chick lit for the inspirational market?
It’s the best job in the world, I’m not going to lie. I feel like I get to explore a new vocation and get inside new heads every day. And I get to be funny. You can’t beat it!
