Interview with Kai Leakes

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Creating characters that my readers connect too is one of my greatest joys in writing. Especially if they help me create a fun world.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean everything to me. I love their feedback and joy of my works. Support is everything.
What are you working on next?
Currently, I have an afro-steamfunk story close to done. I have two YA/NA outlines (with one already in short story form and submitted) and of course, the long-awaited Sin Eaters 3.
Who are your favorite authors?
L.A. Banks, Tananarive Due, Octavia Butler (for being a foundation for the genre I love), Brenda Hampton, Nikki-Michelle, Anne Rice, Nora Roberts, Ann Martin, Lynn Kurland, Bram Stoker, R.L.Stine, and more.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I truly don't know. I guess grace.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I love watching my favorite shows, cooking (when I'm in the mood) or I'm fooling around on the internet.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Typically, I do a general search on BN and Amazon.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it was an epic fantasy called 'Fire & Ice' A paragon tale. Bits of that has crossed over in a story I'm working on.
What is your writing process?
It fluctuates. Usually, I have to be ready to write, period. I usually fiddle around on the net, listen to music, watch a show, but ultimately, I have to be ready.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
No, but I'm pretty sure it was a fantasy book of some sort. Once I learned to read as a child, I was soaking up everything under the sun.
