Author Interview-

What inspired you to write Lies and Snow-Clad Graves?

Lies is the sequel to Blood and Shattered Glass, which was supposed to be a standalone. To understand why I wrote Lies you have to understand why I wrote Blood. When I first started dating the man who is now my fiance, there were times when I thought I was crazy. I have never really found myself to be beautiful or attractive to the opposite sex. I was nineteen when I met my fiance. I’d never had a boyfriend before, but I had been used emotionally by a boy I once liked and he knew it. He used my affection to make him feel better about himself. So when I started dating my fiance I felt like he was too good to be true, that he couldn’t be real, and maybe I was just crazy and he WASN’T real. So, in true Author Tyffani fashion, I started writing about it. I wrote a paragraph and never got any farther, but the story stuck with me until fall of 2014 when I decided to “revisit and revise” (yes, that’s a shout out to Gideon Cross…) I was going to kill Kandace at the end of Blood and Shattered Glass, but I felt like there was more to the story, so it ended up being a series and it isn’t finished yet. =)

When or at what age did you know you wanted to be a writer?

I was eleven, in the sixth grade. I knew at a young age and I started studying writing as soon as I knew it was what I wanted to do.

What is the earliest age you remember reading your first book?

I don’t know. I do remember my grandparents reading to me every night from Aesop's Fables, though. They were, and still are, some of my favorites.

What genre of books do you enjoy reading?

SciFi and Fantasy are my first loves, but I will read just about anything if it catches my attention.

What is your favorite book?

Such a hard question. I think one that has really stuck with me since I was a teenager was The Arena by Karen Hancock. It is actually where I got the name for the name for the male lead in my Vampire Hunted series. I just thought the name Pierce was really hot and I vowed to use it one day. I just had to find the right character for such a strong name. I think I found it. lol

You know I think we all have a favorite author. Who is your favorite author and why?

I have many, but one I have loved since I was a teenager is Ted Dekker. I just love the way he writes completely unapologetically. He writes from his heart and I love it.

If you could travel back in time here on earth to any place or time. Where would you go and why?

I don’t know that I would. I think I would rather see the future than the past. But if I have to choose, I recently got interested in Chernobyl. So maybe sometime around then. Just out of morbid curiosity.

When writing a book do you find that writing comes easy for you or is it a difficult task?

It is never the same. Ever. Some stories are easy. Some take a lot of work and they take a lot out of me.

Do you have any little fuzzy friends? Like a dog or a cat? Or any pets?

I have two dogs. Both are mutts and I love them. Adagio and Treble. My musically themed animals. lol

What is your "to die for", favorite food/foods to eat?

Chocolate and pickles. Not together. Those are the two things I would maybe die for. lol

Do you have any advice for anyone that would like to be an author?

Do your research. Do your homework. Never ever give up. You do not fail until you have given up. Be open to criticism, both constructive and not. And learn from others. You are never too good to learn from others.

About the Author-
Tyffani Clark Kemp might be the quietest person in the room, but that just means she’s probably the biggest freak too. She is a multi-genre author with a gift for the written word and a desire to help all Indies reach their full potential. In 2012, she and her best friend Kimberly Fudge started SideStreet Cookie Publishing for authors who want to remain independent, but don’t have the time or the knowledge to do it all themselves. From the age of eleven she dedicated her life to writing and making sure she was good at her craft. Now, she passes that knowledge on to others. Her friends would describe her as determined and giving. She may be quiet, but she always has a story to tell.
