J: The books I’m most familiar with are the Neumarian Chronicles, your steampunk YA series. What inspired you to write YA novels, and why steampunk in particular?
CK: By February 14th, I’ll have twelve full-length novels published.
CK: The most recent series is a sweet romance line, Sweetwater County. Although, it is my number one selling series, I think I'll discuss my upcoming release, The Shrouded Kingdoms. There are seven books planned for this series. The first three are up for pre-order on Amazon. Book I, The Curse of Gremdon, was originally published through a small press, but due to reader demand, I'm re-releasing it and adding to the series.
Tardon, an elite warrior, is granted anything he desires by the Elders, but finds little joy in the voluptuous women presented to him. Born for the bloodlust found only in battle, complicated emotions emerge when he discovers his equal in the alluring warrior, Arianna.
Book II, The Secrets of Dargon, is scheduled to be released in September 2015, and Book III, will be titled The Runes of Brannon.
CK: It varies from year to year. In 2015, I'll be attending AnachroCon, Authors After Dark, Romantic Times, Dragon Con and UtopYA. I'll be a featured author and/or guest at each of these event. I love doing these events because I'm able to meet readers and chat about my favorite subject, books!
J: Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers?
CK: I’m a geek at heart. I grew up watching Star Trek in the afternoons, standing in lines for Star Wars, and never missed an episode of Battlestar Galactica, Buck Rogers, or any other sci-fi show available. I'm most at home when I'm cosplaying at Dragon Con. I hope some of you will stop by one of my panels this year to say hi!
