Gothic Grimoire Authors!
Fifth up on the interview podium.....(drumroll)…..is Kish Knight!
1) How long have you been writing?
Since childhood, making up those stories about the milk in baby bottles being changed to blood. Yep, that was my contribution to the nighttime bedtime stories.
2) Do you remember the very first story that you wrote? Please, please share with us!
Not story, per se, because in elementary, we had to write stories all the time, BUT my first full-length novel was written in my last year of college (called Second Chance). It contained time travel, guardian angels, saving humans….. that sort of thing. I’ve actually never released it, but I do borrow scenes from it for other novels. The characters and I are friends, and I’ve haven’t built the courage to let them go into the world on their own yet…..
Okay! The submission that I created for the Gothic Grimoire anthology is called Born of Nether and Divine. It is a book from my Dark-Inferno world, sort of a prequel, basically the first book that should be read to understand the background of the characters. It follows the ‘creation’ of one of the supernatural characters, Enya Mortimchka. She is a human that is turned into an EverWitch, a very important tool in the Angel-Demon war.
This story is set several years before Returned to Fire (the first release in the Dark-Inferno world). Several characters are in both novels, Enya, Katse, Ava, and actually Born of Nether and Divine follows Enya’s story of how she came to be ‘the infamous Enya Mortimchka’….the very same soothsayer who warned Sionne of her impending death.
4) Do you see yourself as one particular character in this novel? If so, which one? BTW,are any of your characters based on family or friends? (….just asking….)
Nah….that sort of thing scares me. I wouldn’t be able to write my characters freely, if so. No one would ever be hurt….
YES! YES! YES!Brielle Acosta, the main character in Born of Nether and Divine, is really Enya Mortimchka, the soothsayer from Returned to Fire. In this story, the reader gets to see her meet Enya (an angel) and Mortimchka (a demon), and the way in which they will change her life forever.
I am the author of the Returned novel series: Resurrection, Hellbound, and Dawning, as well as the expanded compilation Returned to Fire; the Dead-End Ave series: The Shelf and The Shelf 2; the Senior Year series: Geek - Boy Equals.... and Geek to Diva in 20 seconds; and also of the middle grade novel, Our Crew PLUS boys!.
7) So, tell us your fave genre all around, in writing? What genre do you prefer to read?
My favorite genre to read and write is paranormal romance, though I also love writing contemporary YA for fun.
8) What question have you always wanted to be asked in an interview? How would you answer that question?Q) Where can we see you NEXT on tour?
A) [this year, I would finally have an answer] See me at the Atlanta Kickback 2019 (book festival) in July!
9)Alrighty now, just to wrap it up, one last thing. This is the interview trademark of my blog. What's your favorite bedtime drink? Cocoa, soda, wine? Inquiring minds want to know, please. (Don't worry, you can answer 'water,' if you don't want to say (lol).ORANGE JUICE!! [ All day, every day, anytime, anyplace….]
Forward to the Grimoire Anthology! See you soon!
