Question Me ~ The Answers Might Surprise You

Today I thought it would be fun to post the some of the most asked questions I get as an author. You might be surprised at some of my answers…

What inspired you to write Reflection?

Kim: The story evolved after Clonaid (a company founded by the religious sect called the Raelians) announced the birth of Eve, the “first human clone” in 2002 using the similar technique to clone, Dolly the Sheep.

About 160 nations in the world have yet to outlaw the birth of human clones and others are allowing the creation of human clones as long as they are not put into a woman’s womb (how do we know they aren’t implanted?), add a kick-ass investigative reporter, and thus, REFLECTION was born.

What is one thing about you that your readers would find surprising or never guess about you?

Kim: I’m a fifty-two year old (Yeah…yeah, I know a woman should never reveal her age) gamer chick! A gaming junkie. Have been since the ’80s. I’m a die-hard PC gamer and known to play first-person shooters (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3), adventure, fantasy and RPG’s (Role Playing Games).

Who are some of your favorite authors and books? What are you reading now?

Kim: Oh, there are so many–but I’m an old-school-kind-of-girl. Harold Robbins (Never Love a Stranger), Jackie Collins (Lucky), and Sydney Sheldon (Master of the Game) top my list. Iris Johansen, Karen Slaughter, Michael Connelly and James Patterson are also some of my favorite authors. One of my favorite books is Waiting Wives: The Story of Schilling Manor, Home Front to the Vietnam War by Donna Moreau.

Presently, I’m reading Kidnapped by the Cartel by Karen D. Scioscia. Fantastic book!

Are the names of the characters in your novels important?

woman

Kim:  They are–especially the main characters. In REFLECTION, my heroine is strong, independent, an investigative reporter. I wanted her name to reflect her character traits and career so I chose, Whitney Steel.

If your REFLECTION was made into a movie, who would you want to play the leads?

hollywood

Kim:  I would choose Charlize Theron to play feisty investigative reporter, Whitney Steel.  Russel Crowe would be perfect to play FBI Agent Blake Neely. For the part of Nathan Shaw, the villain, I would love to see Robert DeNiro play the role. How’s that for an all-star lineup?

Are you single? Do you have kids?

Kim:  No, I’m not single. I have two grown children. My daughter is 32 and my son, 27. I also have two beautiful grandsons, aged 10 and 6. 🙂

Are you going to stop writing fiction and only write true crime novels?

Kim: No way. I have too many stories in my head that need to be told. I love writing fiction.

True crime has always been an interest of mine, so when I was asked to contribute two serial killer stories for the upcoming True Crime Serial Killer Anthology, I was elated. I’m very excited about this project and can’t wait until the book is released this December.
