Author Interview: Kami Garcia

It’s almost YALLFest time, celebrating all things YA and authors and readers and everything in between. If you are in the area, you really should make this a part of your life. A lot of great authors, discussions, signings. You name it, it will be there. Including ghosts.

Which leads me to the wonderful Kami Garcia, the author I am excited to host on my blog today.

I had the pleasure to hear her speak as well as meet her last year at the Southern Book Festival. She is just as awesome in person as she seems. And the fact that she loves the paranormal and ghost-hunting make me love her even more.

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.
1. I don’t know how to ride a bike.
2. I used to be an artist (a painter).
3. I won’t fly without my huge charm necklace that I believe will keep the plane from crashing.
4. I believe in ghosts.
5. 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.

this cover is fabulous

I never believed in ghosts. Until one tried to kill me.

How awesome—and creepy—and fantastic does this sound? I have not had the privilege to read it early, but it is on my TBR list for the month of October, when I prefer to read creeptastically wonderful novels full of ghosts, vampires, witches…Oh MY!

She can also be found on Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, and Instagram.
