Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in the Midlands UK. I grew up in a poor, rough area of town and used my writing to escape an unsettling reality. Delving deep into my characters' minds and hearts, I give my readers thought provoking and sometimes dark story-lines.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Road Rage is a story about Gem, who after escaping the violent lifestyle as a member of an outlaw motorcycle club, she then gets caught up with the fast and wealthy side of street racing. Unfortunately, her past catches up with her which results in an horrific conclusion.
Those that have read Lawless Justice will recognise Gem, as she played a small role as Ford from the last book. I wanted to continue telling her story.

Smashwords book reviews by Karina Kantas

  • The Last Bite on July 15, 2013

    A classic vampire scene. Well presented characters and plot. A great nibble of a read. Would love to have read more about Anne and Gabriel's relationship.
  • Sorcery & Subterfuge on July 30, 2013

    It's been a long time since I've read stories about magicians, elves and dwarves. These tales are simple to read and engaging. I felt the first two stories were excerpts from a novel as they seemed to finish rather suddenly, as though cut off. Where as with my favourite Sceptre of Tanara, I was satisfied with the ending. A good anthology of short stories relating to magic, elves and mythical creatures.
