Author of the Week, Carrie Pulkinen, Interview & Giveaway!

Carrie Pulkinen

About the Author:

Carrie Pulkinen has always been fascinated with the paranormal. Of course, when you grow up next door to a cemetery, the dead (and the undead) are hard to ignore. Pair that with her passion for writing and her father's insatiable love for monster movies, and you've got the perfect recipe for an exciting storyteller.
When she's not writing stories of amazing sex with devilishly handsome men, Carrie likes to read, take pictures, and play with her kids. She also enjoys hearing from her readers, who can write to her at

Interview with Carrie Pulkinen

Holly: Hi Carrie! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Carrie Pulkinen: Hi! I'm a mother of two and currently a high school journalism teacher. After this school year, I'm quitting teaching to become a full-time author.

Holly: When did you realize that you would like to write and publish a book?

Carrie Pulkinen: I believe it was in 2009. I just wanted to see if I could do it. I had so much fun, I haven't stopped writing since!

Holly: Can you tell us a little bit about your book To Catch a Spirit?

Carrie Pulkinen: To Catch a Spirit is about a psychic medium who is afraid of ghosts and a millionaire with a haunted past and hidden power finding love where they least expect it.

Holly: Which came first for you, the characters or the plot?

Carrie Pulkinen: Characters always come first. I don't know what the plot is going to be until the characters tell me.

Holly: What is the hardest part of writing in your opinion?

Carrie Pulkinen: Finding the time to do it. My kids and my job keep me very busy.

Holly: Why this genre(s)?

Carrie Pulkinen: I grew up next door to a cemetery, so I love all things paranormal. And who doesn't love a good romance?

Holly: You’re out demon hunting (because you’re that kind of awesome) and you come across one about to kill a young couple. He has not seen you yet; what is your first course of action?

Carrie Pulkinen: I'd shoot him in the head with my custom demon hunting rifle!

Holly: Your life is a contemporary romance novel; how do your meet the love of your life?

Carrie Pulkinen: We reconnect on Facebook after 15 years apart (this actually happened!).

Holly: Do you think you may ever go into another genre?

Carrie Pulkinen: I'm considering Thrillers in the future, but for now, I'll stick with romance.

Holly: Where do you see yourself at in five years—writing wise?

Carrie Pulkinen: I hope to be a multi-published, best selling author. That's my goal!

Holly: Can we expect more novels from you in 2012?

Carrie Pulkinen: Yes! Reawakened will be released in September. It's got Scottish vampires and American werewolves. What more could a girl ask for?

Holly: Are you working on anything at the moment?

Carrie Pulkinen: I have several projects in the works.

Holly: Where can we purchase your books?

Carrie Pulkinen: You can get all of my books on and Amazon. To Catch a Spirit is now available in paperback!
Holly: Do you have anything you would like to say to your readers?

Carrie Pulkinen: Thank you to everyone who reads my books. You are helping make my dreams come true!
