Featured Author: Kristin Secorsky
Welcome to our next featured author spot! Meet Kristin Secorsky!
Kristin is the author of The Immortal Scrolls & Immortal Beginnings: Amara. She is currently working on a third book for the series. She also has the distinction of being a wonderful woman & my very best friend so please make her feel welcome!
Kristin Secorsky grew up in Corpus Christi, Texas, obsessed with vampires and all things paranormal since she was a child. She began writing paranormal short stories in high school. She earned an Associate of Liberal Arts degree from Del Mar College, a Bachelor of Arts in English degree from Texas A & M University, and a Master of Education degree from University of Phoenix. Frequently plagued with insomnia, Kristin stays up into the wee hours of the morning writing her novels. The Immortal Scrolls was her first self-published novel. Kristin now lives in Dallas, Texas with her family.
I posed the same Q&A questions to her as I did the other authors & I'll share them with you now.
1) Why did you decide to start writing?
It was not a choice or a decision. It was a need I had to fulfill. I love to write.
2) Do you think authors can succeed in multiple genres or should they stick with a single genre?
Yes, I think authors can succeed in multiple genres if they are in what interests the author and what the author knows about. If it is forced you can tell, and the writing is usually not successful.
3) What do you feel is the biggest reward to you with writing?
When readers message me and tell me how much they love my story. Making readers happy is the greatest reward.
4) Who are some of your favorite authors & why?
I have so many favorites.
Charlaine Harris, Patricia Cornwell, Anne Rice, J. Suzanne Frank, and so many more.
5) What are the biggest hurdles to overcome as an author?
Finding time to write without feeling guilty for neglecting other important things is the biggest hurdle for me. It seems other responsibilities usually win out over writing. Also, dealing with negative reviews is always hard.
6) Is there any advice that you can offer for new writers?
Take your time and have your stories edited so you can put out quality work. Unless you enjoy feeling like you were kicked in the stomach, don’t ever read bad reviews.
7) Tell us a few random personal things about yourself, both personally & professionally!
I am a Libra. I am terrified of spiders. I love dark chocolate. When I write, I need to have salty snacks nearby such as green olives or sun flower seeds. And I am obsessed with the Game of Thrones.
