Interview with Shonna Kaldwell

What do you read for pleasure?
I love reading all kinds of books, but my favorite have anything to do with the paranormal. Lately I've really enjoyed some of the young adult paranormal books.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have a Sony e-reader, but I prefer having the book itself in my hand.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Northeast Alabama. I've always been drawn to many different creative outlets. Writing in a journal helped me get through a lot of issues growing up and eventually that love of writing turned into creating stories.
What do your fans mean to you?
They mean the world to me. There is nothing like hearing from a fan that I've touched them in some way with my writing. It always makes my day to read those kinds of messages.
What are you working on next?
Currently I'm working on a series of paranormal stories centered around one main character. I am so very excited about this new series and I can't wait to share it with you.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Honestly, my children and my husband. I love seeing what each day will bring with them. I am so very blessed.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading, doing crafts, and spending time with my family.
What is your writing process?
I don't exactly have a writing process that is set in stone. Each book seems to be different. Some I've plotted and some I've just written by the seat of my pants.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
LOL the first book I ever read was Stephen King's Pet Cemetery. I knew then I wanted to be a writer. I was in 1st grade.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
It's such a great escape to get lost in my characters and creating their lives. I love watching them grow and change over the course of the book and then finally getting their happily ever after.
