Interview Giveaway with KA Young

Can you tell readers a little bit about yourself and what inspired to write in this particular genre?

Sure, I'm at homeschooling mom of three amazing children and creativity is where our learning has always blossomed most.  Paranormal is so much fun, there really aren't any boundaries when it comes to this genre and I suppose that is why I love it so.  You simply can open your mind and allow the creativity to flow through your fingertips. 

What inspired you to write this book?

I knew by the third book in my Nephilim Warrior Series (Blood Kiss) that Elise's character deserved her own series. So I toyed with it for a bit suddenly The Elise Michaels Series was born.

Is there a character that you enjoyed writing more than any of the others?

I truly adore writing from Elise's (From Coven) point of view. She's fun, energetic and has a take me as I am kind of attitude toward life.  Being able to crawl inside the skin of different characters and be them for several hours each day an amazing gift. 

What is your favorite scene from the book? Could you share a little bit of it, without spoilers of course?

The tower scene is hands down my favorite, its full of passion, intensity and an incredibly hot sorcerer. 

What is the most interesting thing you have physically done for book related research purposes? 

I would say that visiting and spending time in cemeteries at night as research for the next book in this series to be quite interesting.  I also realized that inside my own head is way more frightening than anything that I may find while visiting one. LOL   

Other than writing, what are some of your interests, hobbies or passions in life?

There are so many things that I enjoy doing when I have the time.  Painting and photography are two of them, traveling would be another.  I'm also content simply sitting on a beach with my toes in the sand while engrossed in an amazing read with the sound of crashing waves in the background, ah pure bliss.

What was the last amazing book you read?

That would be the latest release in the Charley Davidson Series by Darynda Jones, her style of writing in right up my alley. 

Where is your favorite place to read? Do you have a cozy corner or special reading spot?

Right now being temperatures have chilled off a bit, my favorite reading spot is in my living room curled up in the recliner with a soft blanket enjoying the crackling sounds coming from a roaring fire in the fireplace. 

What can readers expect next from you?

I'm working on the first book in my new YA series Valkyrie Diaries.  You can find an unofficial blurb located on my website.

Book Description:

Elise Michaels' motto has always been: no guts, no glory. She is a thrill seeker, continually craving excitement and adventure. The idea of being tied down to a place or man never interested her, even though a betrothal spell was cast linking her and the Head of Council’s son when they were mere infants.

Being a distant third in succession to assume the Head Mistress role, she felt confidant that her secret would remain in her past along with Coven life.

Unfortunately, nothing in our fun loving heroine’s future is anything she or anyone from the supernatural realm is prepared for.

Now, she’s forced to return to the place and the Sorcerer she so desperately sought to forget. 

Elise has no idea the power and gifts that await her. Can she let go of her own desires and embrace her new role? Or will she surrender to the faceless evil coming for them all?

Book one in the tantalizing Elise Michaels Series a spinoff of The Nephilim Warrior Series.
