Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
Terry Pratchett - There's just something about Discworld. Funny, touching, full of wit and adventure. More than any author I have ever read before Pratchett's characters are the most real (no matter the fanstasical adventures they have). They are sometimes self-serving or cowardly, but they're still likable.
JRR Tolkien - I was writing long before delving into Middle-Earth, but I feel that Tolkien's world gave me the drive to finish works and to move to longer works where I created the world and made the rules.
Tamora Pierce - Ever since a high school friend had me read The Lionness quartet I have been hooked on Tortall. Pierce's books are easy to read and fun and her heroines have given me great inspiration.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I spend a lot of time on the Chicago Public Library ebook section looking for books to borrow. Though, I also enjoy looking through sites such as deviantart and Smashwords to find new authors.

Smashwords book reviews by Katie Roman

  • Last Tales of Mercia 1: Emma the Queen on Feb. 19, 2014
    (no rating)
    I'm not as familiar with Emma of Normandy or this period as I would like, but I always enjoy a good historical. This was a quick read and a captivating one. I look forward to reading more of the Tales of Mercia and Edric the Wild which looks to be the novel that follows them.
