Kim McMahill started out writing non-fiction, but her passion for exotic world travel, outrageous adventures, stories of survival against the odds, and happily-ever-after endings soon drew her into a world of romantic suspense and adventure fiction.
What inspires you to write?
I enjoy crafting great adventures and exploring the world through fiction.
Tell us about your writing process.
My writing process varies depending on the story. I generally make a note card for each character and keep a chapter-by-chapter running log in table format to keep me lined out. But, if the plot is especially complex I have used a cork board to organize the timeline, characters, and maps.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Absolutely – how else can you really get to know them?
What advice would you give other writers?
To be realistic in your goals, and if you’re passionate about what you are doing, never give up.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I self-published my first and only non-fiction book, and realized I had a lot to learn. From there I decided I needed to find a publisher who had the expertise that I didn’t possess in areas such as editing, cover design, and marketing.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
It’s difficult to predict, but the one sure thing is that there will always be a market for a good story.
What genres do you write?
Adventure fiction, romantic suspense, dystopian
What formats are your books in?
