Today, we’re getting ready for YALLFest with an interview with author Kami Garcia! This featured author is especially close to YALLFest. (Kami’s writing partner in the Beautiful Creatures series and the upcoming Dangerous Creatures series is event sponsor Margaret Stohl.) Kami’s latest book, Unbreakable, the first in her new Legion series , will be released tomorrow! (Yes, it will be downloaded on my iPad ASAP.)
What one thing do you need to have when you write?
I need three things: my laptop, my headphones, and Diet Coke.
Describe your book in 5 words.
Paranormal. Ghost-hunting. Intense. Romance. Secret Societies.
Tell us 5 random facts about yourself.
- I don’t know how to ride a bike.
- I used to be an artist (a painter).
- I won’t fly without my huge charm necklace that I believe will keep the plane from crashing.
- I believe in ghosts.
- Every time I write a book, I worry that everyone will hate it.
What are you working on now?
I am working on the second book in the Legion Series, the sequel to Unbreakable. Like Unbreakable, the sequel is very intense and has plenty of paranormal elements. But I think it’s even more romantic and surprising than the first book.
What is your favorite genre to write in? To read?
My favorite genre to write is definitely urban fantasy/paranormal romance. I love to read paranormal, but I am also a huge fan of horror, crime fiction, high fantasy, and science fiction.
