Author Interview: Kerry Anne Fudge

Kerry Anne Fudge
Q: How long have you been writing, and what kind of stories do you most like to write?

A: I've been writing stories since second or third grade. As a kid, I wrote fantasy and some ghost stories. Now as an adult, I usually stick to dark fantasy/supernatural romance. I would like to give horror a try soon.

Q: What's the title of your story in Unearthed? In general, do you get the title first, or do you write the story first? Do you remember what prompted this particular title?

A: My story is called "Harvest". I usually get the title after I've started writing or once I finish the story. One of my lovely editors helped with the title. It's very fitting. But if I told you what prompted it, it would give too much away. ;)

Q: What's the best/worst writing advice you've ever been given?

A: The best advice I've been given, is to turn off the inner critic when writing the first draft. It's best to sit and get your rough draft written before worrying about editing. I think the worst advice is when someone told me I should just write when I'm inspired. If that was the case, I'd never finish a project.

Q: Please tell us: one book you've read recently, one book you're reading now, and one book on your to-read list.

A: I currently re-read The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King. I'm currently reading A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin. The next book I plan to read is The Hunger Games.

Q: What are you working on now, or what's your next planned writing project?

A: I'm editing a short story I wrote a few months ago, and I've recently started researching for a new project.

Thanks, Kerry!
