Blog Tour: Author Interview of Courtney S. King and Giveaway

Posted in , , ,

About the Author:

 One of the first short stories I ever wrote was about my Barbie dolls traveling to Florida. I was eight years-old and fell in love with creative writing. Fourteen years later, I'm still passionate about all forms of written expression. In January of 2013, I published two editions in the Girl's Guide series for teens girls. My first YA thriller novel, Lavender Girl, will be released in January 2013. When I'm not writing fiction or non-fiction books, I contribute posts on my blog


What made you want to become a writer?
I've always loved reading books and writing fiction. As a child, I'd imagine what happened to the characters after reading "THE END" and create my own interpretation. When I realized I could create my own stories, I've been in love with the craft ever since.

Where do you get your inspirations from?
Inspirations for my stories come from my life, the media, and music.

Other than writing books, what else do you do in your free time?
In my free time I experiment with interior design, listening to excessive amounts of music, and spending time with loved ones.

If you could work with another author, who would it be?
I would love to work with Janet Fitch. Her writing style is very poetic and leaves you feeling haunted by the characters.

What are major themes of your work?
Some themes in my writing include coming of age events, love, duality, and personal enlightenment.

What do you think people look for in a book?
I believe readers look for intriguing characters, a unique plot, and a bit of realism to pull them in.

Are there any recent works that you admire?

Neal Shusterman's "Unwind" is action packed and has a unique take on abortion.

Do you have anything else you would like to say to your readers?

Never give up on your goals and keep writing no matter what!
