Check out Keri’s favorite song while reading her interview, where you can find out why she loves this one.
D.R.- Dogs or cats?
K.R.- Definitely dogs. I’ve had one at various times throughout my life.
D.R.- Cake or pie?
K.R.- Both please. If it’s cake I like yellow cake. If it’s pie I’ll take a slice of apple.
D.R.- What is your quest?
K.R.- My quest? To be a published author someday. I’ve been working on my WIP for about 5 years now whenever I get the chance. Family, school, work – the traditional stumbling blocks always seem to get in the way.
D.R.- What is your favorite color?
K.R.- Purple! It has just the right mix of red and blue, two of my other preferred colors.
D.R.- What is your favorite song and why?
K.R.- “Letter To Me” by Brad Paisley. Yes, it’s country, but it’s more about the content than the genre. It’s a song about a man looking back at his younger self while he writes a letter to that younger self telling him that the things he gets so obsessed about (bad grades, breakups, etc.) are nothing compared to the success he’ll find in his later years. I see it as a reflection of my own life.
D.R.- Why do you love/hate winter?
K.R.- This is difficult since I live in Phoenix, Arizona. Winter there is the best because the temperatures are in the 60s and 70s most of the time – springtime temperatures for most other places. I hate it because it’s mostly like any other time of the year, just cooler. Cooler temps, but no bare trees or snow or any of the traditional signs of winter.
D.R.- Where’d you get the idea for your business?
K.R.- I’ve always loved writing and editing and manipulating the written word to deliver a particular message. I went to a few networking meetings when I was new to the area and found that many people complained of not having the time or talent to put into blogs or other written text. I formed my company based on my skills and the needs of clients.
D.R.- What genres do you feel comfortable supporting?
K.R.- I’m always up for a challenge. My favorite reads are romance, mystery, and after some recent exposure – fantasy. Non-fiction too. So those are what I’m particularly interested in editing.
D.R.- What do you have to offer authors?
K.R.- Both writing and editing services. I can create content for blogs and website pages or I can edit for content, grammar, etc. My services can be tailored to the client’s needs.
