Interview With Kim Knight - A Stranger In France Tour


MM: Many authors relate their characters to people they know. Is this the case with your characters and do you see yourself in any of them?

Deep down Kate Brown is a very strong-headed women, I’d say she is a character I can relate to, due to her nature as a person. Tanya- Kate’s best friend is fun loving, very level headed and no nonsense as a person. I can relate to these traits also.

MM: Who is your favorite character in your book and why?

This is a hard one to answer, as I love them all, even the villain. I think I’d say Kate- the poor girl does not have it easy; she goes on such a bumpy journey to find her happy ever after. I enjoy her a lot as a character. Readers will watch her emerge from a cocoon like a butterfly, then spread her wings. I had real fun writing her point of view.

MM: How would friends and family describe you?

Down to earth, intelligent, easy to get on with, kind-hearted, organized, motivated, a hard worker.

MM: What message do you hope readers will take away from your book?

I hope readers enjoy a gripping and unpredictable romantic story, and enjoy the twists and turns. I’d say I hope readers enjoy the reading experience and characters more than anything.

MM: Do you write other genres as well?

I write in the romance and thriller genres.

MM: Do you have a favorite writing area?

Currently, my kitchen table. I do like cafes as well.

MM: What is an absolute must-have when writing?

Music in the background. Anything goes most of the time!

MM: If you could visit any place in the world to just focus on your writing, where would you go?
Wow this is a very hard choice but I’ say a nice hot and exotic location with beautiful beaches, a warm sea and plenty of cocktails. Non-alcoholic of course (while writing), maybe somewhere in the Caribbean. On the other hand, if I have to choose a city maybe Amsterdam, Paris or New York.

MM: What is your favorite inspiration for writing?

Life, and what we go through as people. I like to create stories that have somewhat of a realistic feel to them, in terms of the experiences the characters have.

MM: Everyone wants to know the story behind the story...What's your story?

I’m thirty-three, from London in the UK. Professionally I’m a qualified teacher and a mother.

MM: Tell us a bit about your writing journey. When did you realize you were a writer?

Well, I’ve always loved reading and writing since school. Later in life the writer in me emerged once I had a bit of life experience behind me, and at a turning point in my life- when the focus was just on me, and what I wanted to do. I just started to write as if no one was looking! I started a crime-thriller story at first, I put that to one side once the idea for a romantic- suspense story (A Stranger in France) popped into my head. Since finishing A Stranger in France, I’ve gone back to my original idea and re-worked it into a much better story line. That’s what I’m working on now.

MM: Where can readers connect with you?

Via my personal author blog. I update it four times a week with lots of fun stuff from short stories, writing prompt responses, sharing news etc. on Twitter @kimknightauthor or Facebook @kimknightauthoruk

Nicholas guides me to the side of the bar, to the back and unexpectedly we reach a lift, we step in and he presses P on the lift buttons. Alone in the lift I face him dead on, I can’t help myself, his scent, and presence it’s doing things to me and awaking parts of me that have been dead for so long since Danny and I hit our rough patch.
I grab his tie pull him towards me and kiss him with passion . He’s stunned and taken back I can tell; his hands are full with a champagne glass in one and a bucket with iced champagne in the other, he’s unable to touch me or push me away. By the way he’s kissing me so passionately in return I doubt very much we wants our passionate kissing to stop.
We reach our destination and I release him, leaving lipstick stain on his lips I playfully remove it with a finger, and step out the lift in front of him swaying my hips. I half turn around to face him, Nicholas is still standing in the same spot I left him with his champagne glass, ice bucket and a huge wide grin on his face. Damn he looks so good. “What are you waiting for Mr D’Croix?’’ I turn and say over my shoulder in a seductive way, he laughs. “You took me by surprise Ms. Kate.
