Theresa Kay (Interview) How did you come up with the idea for Broken Skies? I get this question a lot and I’m kinda sad that my answer is so boring. Basically, I just wanted to write a book with aliens in it. I’ve been a sci-fi fan for a long time and there weren’t many YA books in the genre at the time. How many books do you intend to write for the Broken Skies series? The series is a…

Interview 1. How did you come up with the idea for Love Unfeigned? Well, as a major point, I was inspired by my conviction that imperfect people can, should, and do experience perfect love. As a minor point, I was driven by my years of longing to one day publish a book with a lot of RED on the cover, red being my favorite color for the passion it represents. For the first time in my publishing life, I designed…

Interview 1. I know you’re a teacher so how much of an influence did that have on your decision to write Chasing Prophecy? Teaching is the reason this book exists.  The kids are based on bits and pieces of lots of former students.  I wanted to write about young adults transforming 2. Did you allow your students to read your book before it was published, and if so what were their reactions? You know, no student knows this exists.  I…

  Interview 1. What inspired you to write Waiting for the Rain? I’m tired of how our society seems to be glorifying teenage sex and pregnancies. I think there are fewer healthy relationships in books; it’s all about hot millionaires, supernatural beings, and great sex. So I took it in the exact opposite direction – two young adults, mature for their age, who have a committed relationship and fulfill each other’s emotional needs. To make it worse, they can’t even…

Interview 1. How do you come up with the ideas for your books?  Honestly, it varies. Sometimes I come up with the plot first; sometimes it’s a character speaking to me, and sometimes it’s a scene. REAPER was a what if question: What if Miss Popular suddenly learned she would become a grim reaper? For “The 13th Month”, I was given the theme of ONE MORE DAY. The story really developed out of the character and his reaction to the theme….

Interview 1. You have written quite a few books in different genres,  Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Contemporary Romance. Which genre has been your favorite to write in so far? Hmm, it’s not so much about the genre as the characters, I think, BUT contemporary was the hardest for sure. Every time I wrote a HOT scene, I was like “Oh geez, what if my mother reads this?!” Scary.   2. If it is possible for you to choose, who has…

Interview  1.What inspired you to write Jump Start my Heart? A while back I was reading a Goodreads post about One Direction, and I saw how passionate the fans are and how there really isn’t any boy band romance in YA for them. So I decided to fix the problem lol.   2. When did you know that you wanted to be an author? I knew I wanted to be an author after I read The Mortal Instruments and The…

Interview 1. What inspired you to write Riding the Wind?  Most of my books have unique conceptions, but this one may be the most original. Our air conditioning had been out for several weeks as we searched for the best and least expensive replacement. On the day the guys we’d finally settled on came to rip out the old and start installing the new, my husband stayed home from work. The windows were open, extra people were around, and in…
