Interview with KT Grant

What is your writing process?
I am a big planner. I like to set up the characters and the entire story in an "outline" that usually ends up being a short story in terms of the word count. It's a great support to have as I write.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Stephen King's The Stand is my all time favorite book and one that had the biggest impact on me as both a reader and a writer. King's characters' personalities in The Stand are outstanding.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
My 5 favorite books:

The Stand By Stephen King
The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons
A Long Fatal Love Chase by Louise May Alcott
The Passion by Donna Boyd
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
What do you read for pleasure?
Romance is my go to genre for reading pleasure, as well as Horror and Young Adult.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I love the Kindle and iBooks app on my iPhone. I must have over 1,000 books saved because of those 2 apps.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in suburbia surrounded by trees, parks and squirrels. A very traditional upbringing, but my imagination is anything but that.
What do your fans mean to you?
Without my readers, I would be nothing. They mean the world to me.
Who are your favorite authors?
Stephen King, J.R. Ward, Kresey Cole, Gena Showalter and Nalini Singh.
