Well, this is the end of summer and today I have the last Summer Splash Author Interview. But don’t worry, I’ll be interviewing more authors all fall, too (if you’re an author and want an interview, contact me). My guest today is C.A. King, author of the Portal Prophecies series. Here’s a bit about her!
C.A. King was born and raised in Halton County. She currently resides in Ontario, Canada with her two sons.
After the loss of her loving parents and husband, Ms. King was devastated. She decided to retire from the workforce for a year or two to do some soul searching. It was during this time that writing became her passion. She found she was able to redirect her emotions through her writing and in 2014 decided to publish some of her works.
Today her creation, The Portal Prophecies Series comes to life.
Book One, A Keeper’s Destiny, Book Two, A Halloween’s Curse, Book Three, Frost Bitten, Book Four, Sleeping Sands and Book Five, Deadly Perceptions are currently available for purchase. Book Six is scheduled for release this fall.
DR: What’s your favorite song for writing?
CK: Magic Power by Triumph. It is my feel good song.
DR: Dancing or singing?
CK: Singing, although I am not very good. I get the eye rolls from my kids all the time.
DR: Coffee or tea or something else?
CK: Both, as long as it is hot. I like herbal teas and hot chocolate too.
DR: What’s the food or drink you always tell other people to try?
CK: Homemade turkey stuffed perogies. My family devours them in seconds.
DR: What book do you recommend the most?
CK: I like books that push the boundaries for what can be done through writing. I recommend Indie books to everyone I talk to. There are some really unique voices out there that should be heard.
DR: Where is the one place you think everyone should go?
CK: On a cruise. The gentle rocking of the ocean and light breezes are so relaxing.
DR: How do you get ideas for stories?
CK: Daydreaming. It’s like watching a movie on the backs of my eyelids.
DR: Which genres do you write and what’s your favorite one?
CK: Fantasy is my writing genre. I like reading anything paranormal with a touch of romance.
DR: What’s the best advice you’ve gotten about writing?
CK: Don’t listen to anyone else, just tell your story the way you want it to be told.
