MTA Monday -- Meet Kimberley Troutte

NAME: Kimberley Troutte




RELEASE DATE: March 17, 2009. Happy St. Patty’s Day!

FAVORITE WRITING STORY/SAYING/MEMORY: Getting the call from Deborah Nemeth, editor at Samhain, ranks right up there with my all-time favs. I hit my knees and cried tears of joy the entire day! Everyone I ran into (even unsuspecting strangers in line at my favorite coffee house) got a sloppy wet hug. After 20 years of writing and five years of working nonstop to get published, the day had finally arrived. It was a lot like giving birth, once you have that baby in your arms, all the pain and suffering is quickly forgotten and you are ready to try again.

FAVORITE NON-WRITING STORY/SAYING/MEMORY: Ah well, I have two beautiful sons who inspire me and make me laugh every single day. The memories of those two coming into the world are my favorite crazy memories. Again, who remembers the pain?

COMFORT FOOD: Chocolate. Is there any other? Give me dark chocolate and I’ll be your friend for life.

COMFORT READ: My reading favorites are all across the board. I love Gemma Halliday’s IN HEELS books. On my book shelves I have Janet Evanovich, Stephen King, Stephenie Meyer, James Lee Burke, Nora Roberts, Catherine Ryan-Hyde. I read fast and furiously. If the book sucks me in, I won’t stop until I’ve gobbled it all up.

YOUR PERFECT DAY: Today. I’m here having an interview on my first book. What’s not to love?

WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON NOW?: My next release is CATCH ME IN CASTILE, Samhain, Fall 2009. Right now I’m working on HOLD ME IN HAITI.
