A story is never a good story unless it starts with a murder. The more unusual the murder, the better the story, generally speaking. Meet Caecilius (KAI-KILL-EE-USS) Rex, a young detective in the not-too-distant future, a smog-filled post apocalyptic world riddled with crime and conspiracy. When a new case quite literally falls at Rex’s feet, he teams up with his neighbour and associate Kendra Nai, an ex-army sergeant recently dismissed, to investigate. Little do they know that the events of The Atomic Circus will be the first step to solving the case of a lifetime.
How did you decide to create a trailer and what was your experience?
This is a homemade trailer with music composed on Garageband and scenes put together on Sony Vegas Pro. I decided to make this because I noticed a lot of companies charging a small fortune to put still images to music and it isn’t actually that hard to do! I wanted to see if I could make something of similar quality without paying out and I feel that I achieved it quite well.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This was my debut novella in March 2013, there are now 3 books in this series with the 4th and final instalment coming in early 2014. I wrote it because I wanted to create a unique post-apocalyptic world in which I could play with my favourite concepts of crime, mystery and science fiction and give life to a host of interesting characters with their own secrets and dark aspects to be revealed.
Born in South Wales to Raymond and Jennifer Finn, Kimberley Charlotte Elisabeth Finn (known to readers as K.C., otherwise it’d be too much of a mouthful) was one of those corny little kids who always wanted to be a writer. She was also incredibly stubborn, and so has finally achieved that dream in 2013 with the release of her first two novellas in the four-part Caecilius Rex saga.
As a sufferer with the medical condition M.E./C.F.S., Kim works part time as a private tutor and a teacher of creative writing, devoting the remainder of her time to writing novels and studying for an MA in Education and Linguistics.
