Today's guest is Kate Johnson. Welcome! :)
1. Tell me 3 fun things about yourself...or weird things, lol.
I have a huge shoe collection. Some of them are unwearable, but I just like looking at them.
I have three cats; not that many but if it were up to me I'd have dozens!
I haven't eaten meat since 1988. Perfectly normal to me, but apparently weird to some people!
2. How would you explain your new book, Impossible Things, to someone if you only had 10 seconds?
It's about a warlord, a blind slave, and a dog called Brutus.
3. I really enjoyed this one (and I did already ask) but...will there be more fantasy romance books?
Quite probably! I don't have any definite plans to write one soon but I do love fantasy, so I'd say it's quite likely.
4. Now who does not love a good warlord, so tell me, what or who was your inspiration behind Kael?
I honestly had this really frightening dream where the devil strode into the room and pointed at me and said, "Her, send her to me." So that's how he started! He does, of course, look just like my beloved Richard Armitage.
5. And you made poor Isthear suffer so much. Was it hard to write her history?
It was in places, yes. At times I wondered if I was going too far, but I didn't want to soft-soap her story. And having made her suffer so much I wanted to do her rehabilitation properly, which took a lot of thought. And I wanted to get justice for her too, and punish the people who treated her so badly. That doesn't happen often enough in real life, so it was satisfying to do it in fiction.
6. Last question, if you could live in this fantasy world...where would you live?
Ooh...well, I had great fun creating the city of Ilanium, and the luxurious Draxan villa towards the end if the book, but I think I'd prefer to live in Krulland actually. I like cold weather and spectacular scenery, and I created Kael's home to be cosy, warm and quirky. It's also secretive, with lots of places to hide, and there's always pepparkakor on offer!
