Today’s author is extra awesome because she is actually one of the founders of YALLFest, so we give a hearty welcome and a giant THANK YOU to Kami Garcia
for creating such a fabulous festival. Kami is also the New York Times
and USA Today
bestselling co-author of the Beautiful Creature series – the books have been on all kinds of ‘best of’ lists and the first one was made into a movie that released in February. Kami is currently working on her new The Legion series about a secret society of ghost hunters formed to protect the world from a vengeful demon. The first book Unbreakable
is releasing tomorrow (Oct 1st), so happy book birthday!
What one thing do you need to have when you write?
I need three things: my laptop, my headphones, and Diet Coke.
Describe your book in 5 words.
Paranormal. Ghost-hunting. Intense. Romance. Secret Societies.
Tell us 5 random facts about yourself.
1. I don’t know how to ride a bike.
2. I used to be an artist (a painter).
3. I won’t fly without my huge charm necklace that I believe will keep the plane from crashing.
4. I believe in ghosts.
5. Every time I write a book, I worry that everyone will hate it.
What are you working on now?
I am working on the second book in the Legion Series, the sequel to Unbreakable. Like Unbreakable, the sequel is very intense and has plenty of paranormal elements. But I think it’s even more romantic and surprising than the first book.
What is your favorite genre to write in? To Read?
My favorite genre to write is definitely urban fantasy/paranormal romance. I love to read paranormal, but I am also a huge fan of horror, crime fiction, high fantasy, and science fiction.
