Three Questions with Kelly Martin
1. If you had to write a book that was outside your comfort zone, what genre would it be?
Regency. I’d love to write a regency, but I’m pretty sure I’d mess it up. I may write one someday just to prove to myself I can.
2. Which of your characters is most like you, least like you?
Brittany in BIG is Beautiful is a lot like me. I think Rachel in Crossing the Deep is a lot like me. Lizzie in The Afterlife of Lizzie Monroe is a lot like me (except the zombie part… ;) ). Who isn’t like me? Um… I’m going to say Devin in The Deception of Devin Miller is probably the least like me. I think that’s why she was so fun to write.
3. Do you write in an organized space, or do you do better in utter chaos?
I work a fulltime job (I’m a special education preschool teacher) and have 3 kids (8,7, and 3)) so it doesn’t matter where I ‘do better’… my house usually is in utter chaos lol. In fact, I’m not sure I could write in an organized space lol. I wouldn’t know what to do.
Do you have any questions for me? If so, you can chat on my facebook author page or twitter. I'd love to answer it.
Not sure you'll like LIZZIE? Do you watch FOX's show Sleepy Hollow? How about The Vampire Diaries (actually, the idea for LIZZIE came from a dream I had after watching TVD... you'll probably figure out which part when you read it ;) ) Basically, that's LIZZIE. It's FOX's Sleepy Hollow meets The Vampire Diaries with a little faith thrown in for good measure (of course... there is a lot of faith in Sleepy Hollow too lol). SO if you like Sleepy Hollow-- you'll like LIZZIE :) It's one of my favorite books!
Thanks for having me here :)
If Shane Davis had it to do over again, he wouldn't have gone out that night. He wouldn't have burned down the church. And he sure wouldn't have taken the annoying dead girl home with him.
Now that Shane has her, he has no idea what to do with her. He can't release her into the "wild" because people will recognize her (being a hundred and fifty year old town 'legend' will do that). He can't send her away because she can't take care of herself yet. And she can't stay because if people find her, they'll know he burned the church. Being eighteen now, Shane definitely doesn't want that fact coming out.
Unbeknownst to Shane, someone has figured out the girl's secret and will do anything to get it for himself... even kill the girl who isn't so immortal after all.
