Meet Debut Author Caitlin Kittredge

Caitlin Kittredge is the author of the Nocturne City series,her debut novel NIGHT LIFE has just been released.



Here is Caitlin's Fantastic Fives



Five words and/or phrases that describe you:


Ambitious,

wordy,

enthused,

erudite,

crazy.

Five people and or things that inspire you:


My mom, who raised me as a single parent AND homeschooled me.

Really great writing in any genre.

My friends and their triumphs.

Music, especially live music.

Pretty pictures of my favorite actors (especially Christian Bale or David Tennant. Yumm.)

Five of your favorite authors:


Neil Gaiman
Robin McKinley
Raymond Chandler
H.P. Lovecraft
Warren Ellis

Describe five of your heroes/heroines through your eyes:


Luna Wilder, of NIGHT LIFE: A smart, strong, emotionally flawed homicide detective who's also a werewolf.
Dmitri Sandovsky of NIGHT LIFE: A werewolf pack leader, a criminal but a staunch family man and protector of those he loves. A walking paradox in many ways.
Petunia Caldecott of 'Newlydeads': A sensible detective inspector from London who happens to be one of the few who can commune with the Old Gods. Also has a penchant for curries, loud music and the musicians who play it.
Jack Winter of 'Newlydeads': Aging punk rocker has-been, talented mage when he can bother to take the time, tattooed, bleached and devilish, with a good heart under all of the scars.
Dee McNamara, from a WIP, DEATH WISH: A clairvoyant who was saddled far too young with responsibility for her unstable brother, with a survivor's mind and a stage magician's reflexes. Dee isn't a good person, but she's the best one she can be, considering her nomadic life.

Five reasons to read your books:


Snappy dialogue.

Heroines who are smart and real, and hopefully never TSTL.

Exotic locales both real and fictional.

Terrifying alternate history involving Lovecraftian monsters and dead Irish gods.

And hot guys. Of course.
