Welcome to my first-ever author interview on my blog! I wanted to return the favor since one of my new author friends, Stacy Eaton, hosted me on her blog a month ago! So, without further ado, here's Stacy: Kaira – First let me thank you so much for allowing me to visit your blog! It is such a pleasure to be here today!!!
Tell us a bit about yourself : I love forensics – and I love photography. Forensics keeps my interest at my full time job, while photography helps me relax and reminds me about the small moments in life that pass us by quickly!
Describe yourself in one word: Controlled
What is your favorite season? Why? I am a summer person. I love the heat – love to feel the sun on my face and the breeze in my hair. I hate being cold – it makes me miserable and grumpy – so when the sun is out and the heat in the air, I’m happy!
If you could live anyplace on earth, where would it be? Why? I’d live at the beach – where it always is warm! I’d go to the Caribbean someplace and find a small cottage that gave me a view of the ocean and the sun and breeze in my hair. Being near the beach actually helps center myself. You get all the elements there – the air in the wind, fire from the sun, earth from the sand and water from the ocean. It brings it all together.
Tell us about your writing: Actually – I just fell into it. I got an idea, I sat down – I wrote it and now here I am. When I was in high school I wrote poetry, but I never did anything with it. While I was always good at English – I actually hated having to write stories and reports. Now, I love it! It is like that first story plot line opened up a whole new side of me and I wouldn’t want to close it for anything!
Normally when I do write, the thoughts come to my mind quickly and I have to sit and write to get them out. I don’t write notes or make outlines, so when thoughts come - I sit and write them out. When that happens, I can quickly write out a few chapters. It’s the editing that takes a lot of the time. When I get ideas, I can be anywhere – most of the time I am at work driving around and they come to me and keep my company in the dark of the night. Sometimes I have dreamt the ideas and find my characters waking me up. I always write in my office – it is the most relaxing to me right now.
Tell us about your book: My Blood Runs Blue is the first book and it is a series. Book 2, Blue Blood for Life was release September 30 and book 3 is in the works. I believe there will be a total of 4 books in the series, I am not totally sure yet. The idea came from a very tired and deranged mind at about 2 o’clock in the morning while I was working night shift and standing outside of my patrol car getting some air. I was standing in the park one night and saw eyes looking back at me from the tree line. We stared at each other for a while and then it left. I got back in the car and drove away. After that – the thought of vampires working with police came to me and the plot was born.
Officer Kristin Greene is a very strong woman who likes to be in control. She doesn’t like her choices taken away from her, and she fights for what she wants. In My Blood Runs Blue, her world is turned upside down when a young woman is murdered. Kristin starts the investigation and find way more then she expected, including some major things about herself. Julian Hutchinson and Alexander Armstrong are vampires that work for a vampires security force. They are working on the same homicide that Kristin is and when the three lives cross all kinds of crazy things happen. Many of which Kristin has no control over and she has to learn to deal with them. In Blue Blood for Life, Kristin’s life taken even more twists after Alexander is kidnapped. Julian, Gabe and Trent help to locate him and there are more issues with choices and the consequences of those choices.
