Name Kimberly Knight
Age I thought you aren’t supposed to ask women their age? 😉
Where are you from
Fiona: Tell us your latest news?
My box set: Perfect Fit for my B&S Series hit #11 overall on Amazon and is currently ranked #1 Best Seller in Romance Anthologies!
Fiona: When and why did you begin writing?
I started writing in 2012 and honestly, I just started to see if I could write a book. I never planned to actually publish it or now be a bestselling author! I was reading a lot of books at the time and a story just came to me.
Fiona: When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I would have to say, when I hired an editor. While writing Where I Need to Be, I sent it to a few friends and they loved it and it got me thinking that maybe I should actually publish it and see what happens, and well…look what happened!
Fiona: What inspired you to write your first book?
Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You
Fiona: Do you have a specific writing style?
First person. I’m not sure if I could ever write a different way.
Fiona: How did you come up with the title?
My B&S Series is based off of Country music songs except the novellas, which are kinda explanatory. For Tattooed Dots… I can’t really say because that would give the book away, but let’s just say, I have my own Tattooed Dots.
Fiona: Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
Not really…I mean, Tattooed Dots is dedicated to people who are faced with challenges in their lives. I fully believe people can survive anything, but death of course.
Fiona: How much of the book is realistic?
I try to write everything realistic. I don’t write about billionaires or anything that we have no hope of ever meeting in real life. I write about successful people that have worked hard for their money.
Fiona: Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
Yes, my own. Some of it is in my B&S Series and a lot of it is in Tattooed Dots 😉
Fiona: What books have most influenced your life most?
Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You since they got me writing
Fiona: If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?
I can’t choose. All writers should be mentors because it takes a lot of guts to put your words out there for the world to criticize.
Fiona: What book are you reading now?
Lover Eternal by JR Ward
Fiona: Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
I don’t get a lot of reading done now days, so I haven’t read new authors
Fiona: What are your current projects?
I’m working on the last novella for my B&S Series. It’s due out in August.
Fiona: Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of family members.
Online book friends. I was in a book club group and they were excited I was writing a book.
Fiona: Do you see writing as a career?
Fiona: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
Not in my latest, but in my first book, I would change some scenes to make longer or something.
Fiona: Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
Just from reading a lot of books
Fiona: Can you share a little of your current work with us?
It’s from my male’s POV from my B&S Series. You would need to read the whole series to understand this book because I don’t go into detail from the female’s POV book: Anything Like Me.
Fiona: Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
IT’S HARD!!! I can think for hours about a certain scene. People don’t realize the amount of time it takes to write a book. There are days, I spend twelve hours writing and only write a chapter because I think and think and think.
Fiona: Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
Sylvia Day. I just love the way she writes and her stories.
Fiona: Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)?
Yes. On average, I travel once a month to a signing.
Fiona: Who designed the covers?
Fiona: What was the hardest part of writing your book?
Making the story flow. I hate writing filler, but writers can’t just write what’s important because the story wouldn’t flow.
Fiona: Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
I’ve learned a lot. I’ve learned how hard it is. How stressful it is, but I’ve also learned how loved I am. The amount of fans that message me on a day to day basis is awesome. Almost two years later and I still can’t believe I have fans!
Fiona: Do you have any advice for other writers?
Just write and find a good editor. If you’re story is good, it will be a success. It might not be at first, but eventually, it will be.
Fiona: Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
I love you all!
Fiona: Do you remember the first book you read?
No, I don’t, lol.
Fiona: Other than writing do you have any hobbies ?
I used to play in a coed softball team, but we moved and I haven’t found a new team. Now my hobbies when I can are reading and watching TV, lol.
Fiona: What TV shows/films do you enjoy watching?
I have a long list! But I like reality shows like Survivor, Amazing Race, Real Housewives. I like Law & Order, True Blood, Sons of Anarchy…I’m drawing a blank. I have a lot of shows I like to watch when I can!
Fiona: Favorite foods / Colors/ Music
Chinese, Mexican, chicken strips, lol.
Pink and Teal
Country, Pop, some alternative, some rock…
Fiona: If you were not a writer what else would you like to have done?
Before I started writing, I was a paralegal. I would probably still be doing that.
Fiona: Do you have a blog/website? If so what is it?
