Interview with Kennedy Tucker

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
My first story I ever wrote was on a website called Wattpad. I was young, in the seventh grade and it was based on Fan fiction. Now, as I learn to write better and come up with more ideas, I'm exploring outside of Wattpad.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
My five favorite books are It by Stephen King, The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold, After by Anna Todd, Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson, and Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment by James Patterson because each book has a unique way of writing and story telling.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read a mixture of romance and adventure and action. That way I can have some romance and action all in one.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
An e-reading choice of mine would be a tablet or an iPad.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a town in California. Living here made me explore new options and experience those options through writing.
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing about three years ago when I began to start getting into reading books.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I am currently writing three books at the moment. The first one is the conclusion of a trilogy I wrote, and it is about a girl who has been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease and has to battle with it along with her fiancé who found out the news and is struggling to cope with it. The second one is about a man who is killed by a masked killer and has to try to find who his killer before he can be reunited with his deceased wife, but along the way he finds love and doesn't know if he truly wants to leave. And my last book is about a girl who falls in love with a criminal.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
What inspired me is reading other books and wanting to put my imagination to work, and that is what I did.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy in writing is being able to escape from reality and imagine my own world and put it down on paper.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I am not writing I am spending my time by going to school, kickboxing, and volleyball.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first long novel I ever read was It by Stephen King which was a few years ago. His detailed writing really inspired me to write and continue on my path of writing stories.
