  1. Hi KM, tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m an International Bestselling Speculative Fiction author that writes fantasy and paranormal romance. One day I might delve into the horror genre but that is later down the road. When I’m not writing you will find me with my kiddos. Yeah, I have twin boys and they are a handful. They keep me busy and tend to intervene when I’m supposed to be writing.

  1. When did you first start writing?

I’ve been writing off and on since my childhood. However, I didn’t publish my first story until September of 2018. I’ve been working on other works ever since.

  1. Who are your favorite authors?

My traditional authors I love are: Mercedes Lackey, Tracy Hickman, Margaret Weis, Christopher Paolini, Rick Riordan, Kate Elliott, and Elizabeth Kerner.

My indie author favorites are: Renee Scattergood, Allison D. Reid, Tim O’Rourke, Ember Michaels and Aidy Awards.

  1. What inspires you to write?

I love reading books and they tend to help motivate me to write. Sometimes I meet people that inspire characters in my mind and hunger for the chance to write their stories. Another big inspiration is just my love for writing. I don’t do it for the money, even though that is nice to have, I do it for enjoyment.

  1. Tell us about your latest release?

My Tales of Ferrês bundle book is my latest release. It holds all the stories in my Tales of Ferrês short story series, plus a bonus story never seen before. The stories consist of several heroes that walk into the Forest of Ferrês, a kingdom of magical beasts that many never left alive. These heroes face adversity, create friendships, and find magic within themselves. There are: elves, fairies, dwarves, wolf shifters, twin-tailed foxes, and creatures that lurk in the shadows to feed.

  1. What attracts you to writing fantasy?

I have loved the fantasy genre since I was a kid. If it wasn’t for finding this genre I probably would never have picked up the reading habit. I love dragons the most of all fantasy creatures and can’t get enough of books featuring them. Probably the reason why I write a lot of stories and soon books with dragons in them.

Why do I love writing this genre? I would say it has to do with the ability to create my own world, creatures, and characters. The ability to create something from nothing is so exciting, it is hard to keep focused sometimes.

  1. Who is your favorite character you have written?

My favorite character so far would be Jeremy son of Blakis. He is a mischievous character that is always keeping everyone on their toes. Plus he is a comical character and that makes it fun to write his scenes.

  1. Do you have any pets? (If you do we’d love to see pics!)

Sadly no I don’t have any pets. I do have twin boys that crawl around on the ground and make animal noises. They are only two years old and make the idea of having a pet a nightmare. I have a big love for animals and actually had the boys dress up as a fox and wolf for play time. I have a few pictures included.

  1. So what’s next? What are you working on?

Currently, I am working on my Gargoyle Sighted book. It is the first book in my Vortex Series. This book is being released chapter by chapter to my newsletter subscribers every month. The book is about a young cop named Cassie that finds out she isn’t exactly human who is having visions that tend to get her into trouble. She makes friends with a werewolf and has  a mother that keeps secrets from her and forces her into a world of supernatural beings. Cassie has to find her place in the world before she gets herself killed. Want to read this book as it is written sign-up here: https://www.subscribepage.com/y2i1x7.

  1. How can readers connect with you?

I have three main ways for readers to connect with me. The first would be my website/blog. The second would be my reader’s group and last would be my newsletter. These are the three places I keep up to date the most so easiest to follow along.

Today I’m proud to help fantasy author – KB Benson spread the word about her brand new box set – Call of the Sirens. Here’s the blurb:

Lightfall on Swoon Reads

untitled-1

Stuck inside because of COVID-19? Need a distraction? Check out this brand new book by M.A. Phipps and Rebecca Jaycox. So what’s it about? Let’s take a read:

Luna has always been told she’s crazy. That’s why she’s spent the last year in a psychiatric ward for teens—until a mysterious doctor takes her away to a school in Egypt for children with special abilities. There, she’s forced to question if she’s actually insane or if there’s more to her troubled past than she thought.

Caleb is a Dark Nephilim who’s been chosen to go undercover as an exchange student at the Light Nephilim school in Alexandria. Once there, his mission is simple: find a way to free his grandfather, Alexander the Great, who was entombed after trying to take over the world.

When Luna and Caleb cross paths, they’re drawn to each other, but with eons of prejudice standing between them, can they overcome the divide between the Lights and the Darks? Or will the trail of secrets and lies they discover tear them apart?

Sounds intriguing AND for a limited time you can pick up a free copy on Swoon Reads. 

Enjoy the book and be sure to rate, review, and comment on the site.

Shades of Black – Now in Audio!

Shades of Black Audio cover

Shades of Black is a story I wrote originally for anthology that never happened. An idea conceived by Misha Burnett – Sins of Elsewhen. The concept was a series of horror tales set in alternate timeline.

I grew up in London in a outer suburb of the city, Barking, where the air was not great. I’ve had asthma since I was four-years old and probably Barking’s poor air quality contributed to it. But at least the local factories were controlled. I knew my history and knew that in 1956 Parliament passed the Clean Air Act otherwise air quality in London would have been a whole lot worse.

So, for my Sins of Elsewhen story I imagined a world where the Clean Air Act never passed due to an unscrupulous businessman called George Weeks. Read my story on ebook or listen to this wonderful new recording by the perfect narrator for the job, Londoner, Paul Winter.

Now available on Audible or if you would prefer you can pick up a review copy from Story Origin.

Shades of Black – New Release!

Shades of Black Kindle

In 1952 London experienced the Great Smog. Around 4,000 people died and 100,000 became sick. It was this that led Parliament to pass the Clean Air Act of 1956 which paved the way to cleaner air and was an important milestone in the protection of the environment. But what if the Act was never passed? What if a young and unscrupulous politician and businessman had blocked its passing? Meet George Weeks … A cautionary tale of a world that might of been.

Now in ebook (various venues) – just 99 cents.

I wrote this story originally for an anthology that didn’t happen — Sins of Elsewhen – horror stories for an alternative reality. I later tweaked the tale and added it to Sins of the Gods, but decided that with the dismal state of today’s environment that this was a good time to share my original tale with the world.

Pick up a copy today on Amazon, Kobo, or Apple (coming soon to other venues) for just 99 cents.
