Interview & Giveaway - Kristie Cook


Welcome, Kristie Cook!

Author of The Soul Savers Series!


Thanks for stopping by!










How Many books do you see in the Soul Savers series?

7 in the main series (Alexis’s story) plus more novellas like Genesis (which just came out), short stories and maybe even full side novels









Who do you see playing Alexis & Tristan on the big screen?

I won’t say. I really have more of a composite of several actors in mind for each, but I won’t even share that. I prefer readers to come up with their own images. It makes the story more personal to them.

How do you over come writers block?

Depends on what’s causing it. Sometimes I still need to be “shown” the next scene by the characters and a walk or a shower helps. Other times, it’s because I forced something to happen in the previous scene(s) and the characters are telling me that it really didn’t happen like that, so they refuse to move forward. Then I have to go back and see where I made a character do something he or she would never do or where I missed their true reaction to something that happened.


Who is the one author you’d LOVE to co-write with?

Ha! This is the second time I’ve answered this today. The most obvious answer is J.K. Rowling, because she’s simply brilliant. But I don’t know that we’d work well together. In fact, she’d probably do all the writing and I’d just be nodding my head in agreement and drooling over her amazingness, having nothing worthwhile to add. Writing is such a personal activity, that anyone I co-author with would have to be a friend first. Someone I know well and can see we have a high level of synergy together. Someone who’s somewhat like me but also has different strengths and weaknesses so we can complement each other. So I don’t know, but if you ever see me co-author something, you know I found that person.


Quickies:

Apple Pie or Pumpkin Pie?
Pumpkin

Blood Halloween or Gothic Halloween?
Gothic

Vampires or Werewolves?
Oooooh, I don’t know! Angels!

Haunter House or Corn Maze?
Haunted House – I know I’ll eventually get out of it. Plus they’re just a lot more fun.
