1) Most authors will never admit this (myself included), but who is your favorite character that you have written to date?
I don’t know that I necessarily have a favorite, which is kind of surprising to me, haha! They’re all so different, it doesn’t feel like it would be fair to like one more than the other.
2) Your mom is an amazing author, is she who inspired you to write as well?
Inspired… convinced, whatever you want to call it! I actually didn’t ever really want to write any of the story ideas I’d had because I was afraid of the book world. I was letting the meanies scare me away LOL She finally convinced me to write a novella for an anthology a little less than two years ago and finally hooked me into it. She is so wonderful, I don’t know what I would do without her! It’s been fun to have this that we can share with each other as well. I LOVE her!
3) What are you working on right now and can we get a teaser?
Right now I’m working on the third book in The God Chronicles, Hades. I would love to share a teaser! (I made a graphic teaser a bit ago that I’ll send over 😉 )
4) What was your worst writing experience?
I REALLY hate editing. Like, A LOT. I know that’s a common thing with authors, but I seem to have the hardest time with it. I’m one of those people that, once I’ve written the story, I just want it to be done. I feel like that’s such a silly thing to feel, haha. I actually didn’t even plan to write any more after I’d finished the novella for my mom’s anthology because I disliked editing so much. Maybe someday I’ll learn to love it, haha! Thankfully though, I’ve had a wonderful time in every other aspect with each of my books.
5) Are you a full time author, or do you work outside the home as well?
Yes and no 🙂 Right now, I write from home and try to be the best mom I can, which is a job all its own! I have a two year old daughter and a little boy on the way and I’ve loved having my family be my main focus. When I’m not doing all that though, I’m actually an actress. It’s a long story that I both love and am somewhat embarrassed to share sometimes, but I really, really love the theatre. I’ve had offers for auditions, been in one movie (as a zombie, I looked gross!), and been in several musicals locally, but am choosing to spend my time with my family while my kids are young.
6) What’s the biggest success you’ve had since publishing your first novel?
Probably the first time that someone I didn’t know left a review for one of my books saying how much they loved it. For some reason, I don’t ever accept or believe things until someone I’m not related or close to says it, haha!
7) What’s your guilty pleasure?
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera. It’s my favorite show of all time, the musical that got me into theatre, and a huge stress reliever for me. Odds are, if I’ve had a bad day, you’ll find me with some headphones shoved in my ears, listening to The Music of the Night.
8) If you could rewrite any of your books, which one and why?
Such a hard question! I love all of my books so much. I think my novella, Forever, is probably the one I’d pick if I had to choose. It was the first thing I ever wrote and I imagine there are things that can be expounded on and tied up better.
9) Do your characters ever listen to you, or follow the plot, or do they like to run haphazardly across the page?
I let them tell me the story, actually. I’ve tried coming up with it on my own and “the voices” have politely (or not so politely) told me that’s not how it’s going to happen. That’s actually part of the problem I had with what I’m working on now. I had this whole idea and plot lined out for it and couldn’t seem to get through it hardly at all. Finally, I closed the laptop and just thought about it. Hades and Katrina were more than happy to tell me where I was going wrong, haha!
10) Where can readers stalk you?
I’m most active on Facebook, but can also be followed on Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Goodreads, Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, and on my blog/website. Here’s those links!
Barns & Noble
Kamery didn’t grow up thinking that she would be an author. She loved to sing and act! She dreamed of the day that she would perform on Broadway. She also loved books and had an active imagination. She could come up with a story in no time and tell it to her friends. Over time, she realized that she could follow both dreams.
Now Kamery writes when she can, weaving tales in every direction imaginable. When She’s not working on her latest manuscript, she is at school finishing up her degree. Kamery loves learning and getting to do both of the things that she loves!
Currently, Kamery lives in the White Mountains of Arizona with her handsome husband and beautiful daughter. They are her whole world!
It’s fun for Kamery to be so close to family and friends. If it weren’t for them, none of her stories would have ever made it on to paper.
