Interview with Karly Kirkpatrick

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

Karly Kirkpatrick: Hi! I'm Karly Kirkpatrick. I love to read and write YA and I'm also a teacher by day. I teach German and French at a high school near Chicago. If I'm not reading or writing, I'm hanging out with family, traveling, or watching movies. I love movies!

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

Karly Kirkpatrick: After the final Harry Potter book came out in 2007, I was sort of lost book-wise. I didn't know where to go or what to read next. So I started writing and Into the Shadows was the result.

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?

Karly Kirkpatrick: Oh, he's going down, for sure. I'd have my trusty sword (we actually have one at home) and I'd lay that bad boy out. No eating cute young couples on my watch!

Holly: Where can we purchase your novels?

Karly Kirkpatrick: All of my titles are available in ebook on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and iTunes/iBooks.

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

Karly Kirkpatrick: Yes indeed! I put out one novel in January, I have Darkness Rising, the sequel to Into the Shadows, slated for a July release, and then I'll be working on a Bloody Little Secrets sequel, which I will have ready before Christmas, fingers crossed!

Holly: Are you working on anything at the moment?

Karly Kirkpatrick: I'm editing Darkness Rising. I love writing. Don't love the editing quite as much. In fact, I think I prefer editing other people's work!

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

Karly Kirkpatrick: I've done paranormal and contemporary so far. I'm interested in trying a mystery as well, I'm a huge Agatha Christie fan. I may someday try to write for adults. Maybe...

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

Karly Kirkpatrick: In five years, I see myself with a ton of books out and just enjoying writing!

Holly: Do you have anything you would like to say to your readers?

Karly Kirkpatrick: Hi! *waves* Imagine I'm sharing cupcakes with you! *passes out cupcakes*

Holly: Are you reading anything interesting at the moment? If so, what is it?

Karly Kirkpatrick: I am reading Afterlife by Megg Jensen. It's *awesome*!!!
