Hey, everyone! I’m Kristina Knight and I’m so glad you’re here today! I’m a full-time writer, although I do divide my time between non-fiction (business articles) and fiction, along with a very busy 7 year old, my own Knight in Shining Armor I stay pretty busy!
1. What genre(s) do you write in and why?
I write contemporary romance. I love romantic suspense, paranormal and historical, but contemporary is my absolute favorite, so it made sense to stick with what I love best when I started to write.
2. What’s your favorite beverage?
Pepsi, ice cold, please.
3. If you had to listen to one song over and over again for a whole day, what would it be?
Gosh, that would change every few weeks…but for right now, I’m really loving Taylor Swift’s Style.
4. What is your least favorite part of writing?
I don’t have a least favorite part, and I know that sounds like a cop-out, but I truly don’t. When I’m brainstorming ideas and plotting I have the best time, and when I’m drafting and revising I can see the book growing in dimensions I never thought of … but my favorite-favorite part is the brainstorming.
5. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Right where I am! I complain about the long – and COLD – winters, but in truth I love living on the North Coast. We get to experience every season and the beach is just down the road.
6. Are you an avid reader? When you do read someone else’s writing, what is your favorite genre?
Yes, unless deadlines force me out of my reading habit! Romance is my favorite genre, but I read across the spectrum. Biographies are some of my favorites, actually.
7. Where do you get the ideas for your stories?
Oh, gosh, everywhere? An overheard conversation might spark an idea. Television commercials, articles in the newspaper or magazines…ideas are everywhere, we just have to look for them!
8. Tell me about your ideal reader.
My ideal reader…hmm, has a sense of humor, loves to find new book boyfriends and doesn’t feel an outfit is complete without a good book! lol
9. If you were to choose one superpower, what would it be?
I’d love to be able to fly. Those TSA security lines are a killer!
10. Tell us about your next book & when is it being published?
Later this summer, I’ll be re-releasing my Anthem series – Light My Fire, Start Me Up and Call Me. They are 3 rock star novellas that I absolutely love. And in November my next Harlequin Superromance comes out. It’s called First Love Again and is (as you may have guessed!) a reunion romance. I can’t wait!!
