Interviewing author Kimberly Miller
Q1. Tell me about yourself -what are your favorite books to read?
A. I love reading books with strong characters and solid dialogue. Charles Martin is one of my favorite authors
Q2. When did you decide you were going to write a book?
A. I’ve been writing for years. My first novel, Picking Daisy, was actually written first as a screenplay but I wanted to get deeper into the psyche of the characters, so I turned it into a novel and have been writing novels since then (I still write some screenplays too)
Q3.How did you come up with the name of your books?
A. I am usually concerned about there being other books with the same title, so I like to add a character name as that distinguishes my title from others
Q4.What are you working on for 2019?
A. I have several projects in the works currently, all clean romance novels
Q5. How long have you been writing?
A. I realized my love of stories in junior high and started with short stories
Q6.What advice would you give other authors?
A. Keep writing, read a lot, and don’t stay down when you get kicked by rejection. Be creative in how you get your writing out there, enter contests, and join writer’s groups or workshops so that you’re constantly honing your craft. No one knows it all, so keep learning and growing.
Q7. Where can people find you online?
Q8.Do you plan on making more books in the future?
A. I imagine I’ll always be writing
Q9. How many books have you written?
A. I have written six total, though only two are published currently, and a novella is under contract. The other four are at various stages of being ready to go, and two of them are with my agent now as he works to find a publisher for them. The other two are almost ready to go.
Q10. Did you go to college to be a writer?
A. I have a Bachelor of Science in Writing, a Master of Arts in Writing and a Ph.D. in Composition. I always hoped I’d be published but also never really believed it would happen. I teach college film and writing classes now as my full-time job, but writing is definitely my passion, and likely always will be.
