Interview with Tracey Kitts
My current release is called Frank and The Werewolf Tamer. It’s about a new vampire, Katherine, and her relationship with a modern (and sexy) version of Frankenstein. Hey, I’ve always thought Frank had potential. Ha. Ha. Ha.
When in the day/night do you write? How long per day?
I write all the time. I don’t have a preference of time, only a preference of silence. I’ll write any chance I get. When I’m working on a new book it’s like I’m obsessed. My husband says I’m addicted, he may be right.
What do you think makes a good story?
There are so many ways to answer this question. Mainly, when I read something I look for characters I can relate to and a story that’s interesting. You can tell when you read a story if the author really got into it themselves. It comes through in the words and those are the best stories, regardless of genre.
Plotter or Pantser? Why?
I’m a little of both. I plot the basic idea (characters, main story conflict, etc.,) and I make a few notes. After that, I let the story take over. I’m always surprised at what turns up. I know how the story will begin and end, but I’m never certain about how we’re going to get there. That’s half the fun.
What are your favorite TV shows?
Right now, I’m in love with Once Upon a Time. Believe it or not, I have a crush on Rumplestiltskin.
What songs are most played on your Ipod?
Right now I’m hung up on anything by Keith Sweat and Lady Gaga. Can’t seem to get Maroon 5 and Moves Like Jagger out of my head either. Ha. Ha.
What do you do to unwind and relax?
Writing is my drug of preference and it unwinds me like nothing else can. There’s nothing more satisfying than writing a great scene. Even wine and a hot bubble bath can’t compare. However, if I’m not in the middle of a book at the time, I love to play video games.
What would we find under your bed?
The boogeyman, stashed away for “special occasions.”
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
I’d like my readers to know how much I appreciate them. This is my dream job. I have wanted to be a writer since I was six years old and you guys make that possible. Thank you so much for your support. I hope you enjoy all my stories as much as I enjoy writing them.
Here are the details for Frank and The Werewolf Tamer
Blurb: Katherine has had a hard time finding work, mostly because she’s a vampire. Turns out, people aren’t clamoring to work with the undead. She goes to the massive theme park, Notte Oscura, as a last resort. What Katherine doesn’t realize is, there’s a lot more waiting for her than just a job.
