#AuthorSpotlight – Kelsey Rae

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself and which Twinsie do you know.

Hi! My name is Kelsie Rae. I write contemporary romance and dark mafia romance. I have three monster kiddos, three fur babies, and a husband who still puts up with me after eleven years of marriage. 🙂 Dee Kendrick is the Twinsie I know, and she’s awesome.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

First book! Gah! I’m literally planning my 2021 series right now and it isn’t exactly what I’d call a walk in the park. Once that one is finished, it feels like it gets a lot easier.

What comes first? The plot or characters?

Ooo… good question! Usually a song sparks an idea for a story. Whether it’s a gritty voice or the sexy lyrics, that’s where I start. But I think it depends on the song as to if it sparks a scene or a specific character. Usually, I’m just along for the ride.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

Rachel Van Dyken. (I’ve actually met her, and she’s amazing, despite my awkwardness. lol)

If you could ask that author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be? How many words does she write in a day? How does she manage to connect with her readers so effortlessly?

What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series?

BLURBS ARE THE DEVIL. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve rewritten a blurb for the same book. Usually, I feel like I’m just chucking ideas at a wall, and am praying one of them will stick.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

Signings are amazing because I get to meet so many awesome readers, especially the ones who’ve reached out to me beforehand through email or social media. Each and every time I hear one of them compliment my stories is my favorite thing in the world. 🙂
