Hello and welcome! My name is Kristie and I am a full time wife and mother who works and blogs part time. I have a reading addiction and books are my kryptonite.
I started blogging about two years ago. I was going through a really tough time in my life and books became an escape for me. I joined this fantastic group on Facebook and was constantly posting the books I had read and recommend everyone to read. After a little while I was approached to join a book blog. It was amazing opportunity that was offered to me and I took it. I was blogging with two other wonderful ladies for almost a year and it became a pretty successful blog. Through blogging I have been able to meet some pretty amazing people and have built some great re-pours with a few authors and that to me has been the best experience ever!
A few months ago, I made a decision to do what is best for my family and started working part time. I also decided to venture out on my own and start my own blog that I could do part time as well. I have had such a great support system from my family and from friends and authors old and new. I am feeling so very blessed and grateful.
Welcome to my very first post!
I had the wonderful opportunity to have worked with and gotten to know the author of the FANTASTIC book The Light in the Wound, Christine Brae. I am so excited and honored that she agreed to do an interview with me. Can I just tell you how genuinely amazing she is not only as an author but as a person and a friend.
KKR: Have you always wanted to be a writer?
CB: Hi, Kristie! Thank you so much for having me. I am so excited to be your very first blog entry! Can I just tell you how proud I am that you have decided to do this!
Sorry for digressing .
Although I have always loved to write, never in my wildest dreams would I have ever thought that I would someday write a book! Writing has always been a big part of my life, whether at school or at home or when I would write love letters and poems for the important people in my life. While I was growing up, writing was a very important outlet for me.
KKR:Who are your favorite authors?
CB: Before my heart was blown open by Tarryn Fisher’s The Opportunist, I was hooked on mainstream authors like Alice Hoffman, Jodie Picoult and Anita Shreve. I always leaned towards stories depicting the plight of women and angsty, doomed love affairs. Tiffanie DeBartolo is a huge favorite of mine. I do have to tell you, a lot of my current favorite Indie Authors are my favorites because I know them as real people and I love them as friends.
KKR: Do you write your stories based events that have happened in your life?
CB: Yes! My family and friends have definitely read the book. I tried to keep it a secret for a while but it’s now out in the open! They have been very supportive of me, especially now that I am writing a second book. They went through a long period of not having me and I’m about to embark on that again. I am so lucky to have them in my life, and I give my husband the most credit for allowing me to just be me.
KKR: Thank you Christine! For taking the time out of your busy schedule to sit down and answer these questions for me. Your support has meant so much to me. You book was amazing! I look forward to reading your upcoming book!
