Kimberly Krey, the awesome author:

AUTHOR INTERVIEW

What is the 'story behind the story?'

When I first started brainstorming for Evie’s Knight, I pretty much knew who my characters were. I knew falling in love with Calvin was dangerous for Evie, but I just wasn't sure why. In writing fiction, authors often feel as if the situations they are writing about already exist (not in reality, but abstractly) and it's our job to uncover and write them.

That is definitely the case for me. As I come up with certain possibilities, it's almost as if I know whether the idea is right or wrong. I can feel it. I knew that Calvin had lost his mother at a young age. And from there, it was just a matter of finding out what that had to do with his family's dark curse. It's such a fun and exciting process!

What is your all time favorite book character and why?

Anne Shirley, hands down. (From Anne of Green Gables, by Lucy Maud Montgomery.) I love Anne's spirit and her spunk! She is a dreamer and a lover, but she knows how to fight - and I love that too! She makes the best of each situation, and she brings out the best in those around her too. I absolutely adore Miss Anne (that’s Anne with an ‘e’) Shirley. (Great question, by the way!)

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?

I’ve always wanted to go to Brazil, mainly because I would love to see The Cristo Redentor (Christ Our Redeemer) Statue. Seeing it in movies and TV is amazing; I can only imagine what it would be like to see it in person.


What is something that most people don't know about you?

Okay, here’s one I haven’t shared before: I occasionally have dreams about smoking. I am not a smoker, nor have I ever been one. But sometimes I’ll have these dreams where I am hiding from everyone I know, just so I can light up whatever I can get my hands on that resembles a cigarette. It’s like there’s a deep-rooted piece of me dying to be a closet-smoker. There are several reasons I’ve never taken up the habit, but the dreams honestly do leave me craving it on some level. Very Bizarre. I’m sure there’s a therapist out there who’d love to get their hands on this one.

What do you enjoy the most about writing?

The discovery part! First, I love discovering who my characters are. But once I know them, I love finding out why they are the way they are. Sometimes I know about their past and present before I know much about their personality, and that’s what helps me learn about them. I often pull over on the side of the road or wake up in the night, all to write out a scene that’s playing out in my head. The emotion is there – I can see it in their eyes; feel it in my heart. I know every word they’re saying, and I have to get it out. It’s truly a beautiful thing. As a side note – kissing scenes are one of my favorite parts to write. J

Who is one of your heroes and why?

There are several people in my life I admire. But, I’m going to have to go with Joseph Smith on this one. I am in awe when I consider the way he fulfilled his mission on this earth. He did what he had to do, even though he knew it would be a rough ride, and that he’d be mocked and hated for it. He did what was right, and I am thankful for that. Truly a hero in my book.
