Today on Paws 4 Thought we welcome KM Jenkins who has a brand new book out that she is going to tell us all about.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
