Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
I’m Kenzie Michaels, author of ten steamy novels and karaoke addict:) I’m also a full-time wife, mom, and grandma, and am about to acquire a daughter-in-law next year, courtesy of my oldest son popping the Big Question Feb 15th. We live in the southwest corner of Indiana, and I’m also in the process of clearing out the house next door to us and turning it into my private library/office.
Where is your favorite place to write and what food must be present?
Right now, my favorite place is at my desk, and the muse likes Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies. When those aren’t available, the Mint Oreos are a good substitute!
What are you favorite things about attending signings?
Definitely meeting readers! I also like to network with other authors, to swap promotional ideas and learn of new signing opportunities. Face it; we’re all here to help each other.
What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?
I’d love to meet Danielle Steele, Nora Roberts, and Lavryl Spencer. I read these ladies when in my twenties, and still have their books. I’d also love to meet Judy Blume, whom I read as a teenager, which inspired me to write about social issues.
What is your favorite memory so far as an author?
Hands down, my favorite memory is when I ventured out to promote my 1st book. I’d set up at a local craft fair, and a woman bought one. I saw her the next day, and she told me she’d begun reading it, and could hardly wait to get back to it. Day #3, she made a beeline for my table, slapped her hands down, and exclaimed, “I loved it! Stayed up too late to finish it, but I couldn’t put it down. When’s your next one coming out?” I stammered, “Ummm….when I get a publisher?” Then gave her a one-page ‘sneak peek’ of #2. I’ve never been back to that venue since publishing the others, so I have no idea if she even knows about the others.
