Thank god it is Sunday. My work weekend is almost over. Even though I am sitting at work bored out of my mind I got a special treat for you all to enjoy. Today I am sitting down with Katie Holland for her very own interview. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Happy reading everyone :).
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I’m married to a wonderful, hardworking man. Daughter of fantastic parents. As well as a sister, cousin, step-mom, grandma and dog mom. I love being outside but hate bugs. Popcorn is my favorite snack and I never say no to chocolate!
What genre do you write in? Why?
I write Young Adult Fantasy and Paranormal as well as Contemporary, New Adult and Paranormal Romance. I all have a children’s book in the works.
What inspired you to become an author?
I’ve loved writing since I was a kid and I was encouraged by my family to try a novel.
How did you come up with the story within your books? What inspired your creativity?
I honestly don’t know where a lot of it comes from. I just sit down at my laptop and see what happens. But a lot of my characters are inspired by real people.
Who inspires you to write in your normal day life?
My mom is my main source of inspiration, but my whole (and extended) family also encourages me.
What authors inspired you to write your own book?
Abbi Glines is the main one. Then I learned about the Indue author community and that was a huge inspiration.
Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years as a writer?
Hopefully making living as a full time writer.
Are you Indie Published or Traditional? Why did you choose this route?
A little bit of both. I started out with self publishing and then found Kingston Publishing Company which is a small publisher.
What should we expect from you in the coming months?
I am going to finish the final book of my Nykara series. As well as the second book in my Bay State University series. And hopefully a children’s book.
What is the one thing you want to say to your readers?
Thank you, thank you, thank you! You’ll never know what it means to me that anyone loves my work.
Author of Young Adult and Romance books. If Katie’s not writing you can find her reading, cooking or baking for her family. Her love of writing goes back to elementary school and her love of books goes back even farther than that. She takes inspiration from the everyday and lets her imagination take over. She loves seeing new places and enjoying what nature has to offer.
