  1. When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

KTR: I’ve wanted to write since college. I did technical writing for a while but after starting my career, I got back into reading fiction. Lots of it. Then I took a crack at writing and haven’t stopped since then.

  1. How long does it take to write your book(s)?

KTR: Good question. Anywhere from a month to a year. It depends.

  1. What is your work schedule like when writing a book?

KTR: I work from 3 am to 1130 am. I come home and write until 3 pm or sometimes until I go to bed around 7 pm. On the weekends, I write on my daytime work schedule. It’s hard.

  1. Where do you get your ideas or information for your book?

KTR: They come to me in ‘what ifs’, dreams or my mom calls me and we sling ideas around.

  1. When did you write your first book?

KTR: Back in 2016, I started writing short stories. Those turned into longer works. I have one novel out and a novella on pre-order.

  1. What do you do when you’re not writing?

KTR: Beating myself up for NOT writing and adulting.

  1. What does your family think of your writing?

KTR: They’re proud. They love the fact that I go for what I want.

  1. What was the most surprising thing you learned in creating your books?

KTR: That it’s insanely hard and time consuming. But it’s a beautiful thing. I’ve learned alot about appreciating the differences between people. I’ve also grown to understand why people do the things they do (character development).

  1. How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

KTR: I’ve written four books and am currently working on a fifth. I think Netted is my favorite. It pays around with being kidnapped by a darknet cult. So fun. I’m working on book two now.

  1. Any tips/suggestions on getting started?

KTR: Start. Just start. Take constructive criticism. It’s good for you. Grow. Always look for a chance to to improve your style. But you can never grow or be criticized if you never finish that first manuscript.

  1. What do you think makes a good story?

KTR: Real people, a fine plot structure, and twists. I love it when I can’t see what’s coming and how the characters deal with it.

  1. As a child, What did you want to do when you grew up?

KTR: A medical examiner. But based on the job market, I decided to skip medical school when I was an undergrad.
