Interview with Katasha Brown

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I would say my family is the root of my inspiration.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I wrote was in Elementary school. It was a bunch of jumbled up thoughts that were in paragraph form. It was terrible, but it was the start of a lifelong career.
What is your writing process?
I have to listen to music in order to get into deep thought. I am able to brainstorm freely when I listen to a by Jhene Aiko, "W.A.Y.S." It has become a ritual of mine.
What do you read for pleasure?
I am pretty open to all genres. I think it is important to be diverse. One book I never get tired of reading is "The Screwtape Letters" by C.S. Lewis. It is a timeless favorite of mine.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
iPad
Describe your desk
Very O.C.D. There is a certain way my pen holder has to sit. I have my clips color-coordinated, and I have a whiteboard hung up right in front of me.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Virginia Beach, VA. The diversity in the city allowed me to toggle in different areas. There were different people I came in contact with that helped me shape my writing style.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing when I was nine years old.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I wanted to step away from my style of comfort.
What are you working on next?
I am working on my first novel, "The Indian Slave."

I use iBooks and search for certain genres.
