I'm incredibly stubborn (which may be why I'm a published author). I still believe that
fairytales can come true (which is maybe why I write them). I'm loyal, sometimes too
honest, and a control freak (maybe another reason I'm a writer;}).
Five people and or things that inspire you:
My family, especially my youngest son, who loves to play ‘create a world’ with me.
My editor, who inspires me to write my best.
My readers, including reviewers, who always get me excited when they tell me they loved my book.
My writer friends, who provide a world of encouragement and support which makes me want to ‘just write’.
And those little two words: “What if…”
Five of your favorite authors:
This is a difficult list because I’m limited to five, and it’s always subject to change:
Wrede & Stevermer,
and Patricia Briggs.
Describe five of your heroes/heroines through your eyes:
Lady Felicity Seymour, the heroine in ENCHANTING THE LADY. She has no idea of her beauty because she’s grown up under a spell that makes people overlook her, which makes her incredibly modest, naïve and…feisty.
Sir Terence Blackwell, the hero in ENCHANTING THE LADY. A were-lion whose animal nature constantly imposes on his human self. He hides his too-generous heart beneath a worldly, suspicious exterior.
Lady Jasmina Karlyle, the heroine in DOUBLE ENCHANTMENT. A prim and proper Victorian lady who has an inner vixen that only a spell from one of Merlin’s relics can reveal.
Sir Sterling Thorn, the hero in DOUBLE ENCHANTMENT. Fiercely loyal and subject to his were-stallion temper, he doesn’t care what society thinks of him. He’s a man used to knowing what he wants, and only love can confuse him.
Mahri Zin, the heroine in BENEATH THE THIRTEEN MOONS, my very first novel. She’s wild and independent and her idea of a good time is fighting sea monsters and deadly rapids. The only man for her is one that doesn’t try to tame her and who’s just as hardheaded.
Five reasons to read your books:
I’m doing a little cheating here, because another writer, Tina LaVon, wrote a witty piece titled TOP TEN REASONS TO READ ENCHANTING THE LADY, and I’m using five of them here:
5. The characters come to life! Terence’s lion instincts, and at times his wild behavior,
will trigger your own animal magnetism as you root for him to win Felicity’s heart. Romance Reviews Today loved ENCHANTING THE LADY so much they gave it “a perfect 10.”
4. This treasure hunt can’t be missed! Merlin created powerful relics that everyone wants to get their greedy hands on. (If they truly are powerful, they will also be self-cleaning.) Anyway, there are 13 relics and 6 have already been found. That means seven enchanting stories. I hope. I can’t wait to read the whole series.
3. ENCHANTING THE LADY is packed full of suspense and danger. The shifters, monsters and magicians practicing dark magic will keep you turning the pages all night. (You’re a doctor? Don’t worry; you can nap between surgeries.)
Speaking of romance…
2. Escape the real world and those dirty clothes that keep piling up. You won’t regret hiding at the coffee shop--or in the closet if you must--to quietly enter this kingdom of magic and romance. Publishers Weekly says, “The latest from Kennedy (Beneath the Thirteen Moons) is simply delightful, set in a fantasy-touched Victorian England that's imaginative, historically vigorous and ripe for further adventures.”
The Number One Reason to Read ENCHANTING THE LADY is…
1. You must discover this awesome world builder. Remember you heard it here first; Kathryne Kennedy has set the bar high for historical paranormal romance. (Say that five times fast.) The Best Reviews says, “…Kennedy is destined to be one of the sub-genre’s superstars.” Read the excerpt of ENCHANTING THE LADY at her website and you’ll know what I mean.
