Happy Tuesday everyone. Hope you are having a blessed day. Today I am sitting down with YA Fantasy author Katie Holland in her very own interview. Hope you will stick around to get to know this very talented author. Happy reading :).
Tell us about yourself?
I’m lucky enough to be a full time author right now. I also take care of my family and two very spoiled dogs. I love baking and taking pictures. Popcorn is my favorite snack and love anything sweet! I started writing in elementary school but didn’t get serious about it until 2015.
What genre do you write? Why?
I write YA fantasy and paranormal romance as well as adult contemporary, NA and paranormal romance
How does your normal day look like?
After finally getting up later than I planned, I start writing or editing. I try to do that most of the day while still doing boring things like laundry and cleaning. After dinner I try to read (that is when my hubby isn’t needing something (lol).
What books do you like to read?
All kinds of romance and YA.
Who is your favorite character you have created?
Alix. She was my first and I’ve loved seeing her evolve in the Nykara series.
Who are your top favorite authors?
Abbi Glines, Laurell K. Hamilton, Cassandra Clare
What do you have in the works right now?
I’m editing the fourth and final book in the Nykara series which will probably be out early in 2020.
What should we expect from you in the coming months?
I plan on writing the second book in the Bay State University series. After that I think it’s going to be the start of a shifter series by various Kingston Publishing authors. And I’m working on a couple of children’s books.
What would you like to say to your fans?
Thank you, thank you, thank you. You have no idea what it means to me that people like what I write. Becoming a published author was a dream come true and because of you I can keep doing it. Also, it’s crazy that I actually have fans!
