Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
KD Proctor loved college so much that when it came time to graduate, she didn’t want to leave. Trading in her textbooks for student handbooks and policy manuals, she began a career in College Student Personnel and she fulfilled her wish to stay on a college campus forever. Working on a college campus gives her lots of book ideas–and her mother is just happy she’s finally using that English degree. KD is an award winning author and lives in West Central, Minnesota with her husband and fur-kids. She likes to write fun twists on the usual tropes that we all love. Her characters are smart, funny, and always swoony. And yes. They always get their happily ever after.
When you are writing, what are some go to’s that you needs? IE Foods to eat, noise level, place to sit.
The only requirement that I have when I write is an idea and an outline. That’s it! Without those two things, the writing just won’t happen.
What are you favorite things about attending signings?
Of course I love meeting new readers who pick up my book on a whim and are happy to take a chance on a new-to-them author. I also enjoy meeting other authors, sharing ideas, and even picking up new books for myself as well!
What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?
Colleen Hoover. True story: when I got an idea for my very first manuscript I wanted to find someone who would take me under their wing and help me make heads or tails of all of this author stuff. In a bold move (that still surprises me to this day…) I reached out to Colleen and asked her to be my mentor. She was kind enough to respond and while she wasn’t able to do it, she gave me some great advice that shaped how I look at writing and publishing in general.
When you are writing, do you have a consistent schedule where you write every day at the same time or are you a sit and go on different days to get it done kinda person?
Nope. I write when the idea hits me. It’s not uncommon for me to go weeks or even months without writing anything. I don’t force my writing because when I’ve done that, it’s been terrible. So, I write when the mood strikes me.
What is your favorite memory so far as an author?
Holding my debut novel for the first time. There is nothing like it.
Do you have a book that is your most prized possession? What is it and why is it so amazing?
Can’t say that I do….
