Kitty Margo is the mother of three and grandmother of four. She lives between the banks of two rivers and spends a good portion of her time with her laptop, watching the swirling river rush by as she dreams up ghost tales because, thanks to her grandchildren, their is always a ghost involved in her storytelling.
What inspires you to write?
My grandchildren. Whenever they sleep over, I hear, “Tell us a story, Grandma,” until they finally drift off to sleep. They are all the inspiration I will ever need.
Tell us about your writing process.
Nope, I am not an outliner. Once I get the germ of an idea, I just go with it. Then I read it and rewrite it until I feel like nothing more can be added. Then I give it to my grandkids to critique. When I get their seal of approval, it’s ready.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Since the book is centered around my son and his friends when they were thirteen, I already had an idea of what their reaction would be to any given situation, especially his slightly overweight friend with a distinct phobia for anything dealing with the supernatural.
What advice would you give other writers?
Just do it. Put pen to paper, or fingers to the keyboard and write. You can think about it the rest of your life, or you can actually publish a book. The best piece of advice I ever received was, “Never let anyone stand in the way of your dreams.”
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Since Amazon cornered the market on self published books, it was a no brainer to go with them. I published my Tropical Paradise Series for Kindle, a set of four historical romances, in September 2012, so naturally I went with them when I chose to try a book for middle schoolers.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I see bright, sunshine and cloudless skies on the horizon. Who doesn’t love a good book?
