James: When did you begin to write?
Kerry : I've written off and on most of my life. When I was a young girl in school I would often ask if I could write my own story rather than do a book report.
James : What made you choose this genre and the title of your book?
Kerry: Frankly, one day my husband and I were making jokes about something to do with vampire stories or movies. I don't recall what it was exactly. Something had just struck us funny. I made a comment about a "Women's Guide to Dating Vampires". The seed was planted and after that the idea of creating my own vampire story started to grow.
As for the title, the main character is named Hero Fletcher. Her father, and English Lit professor, named her Hero after Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. And the mystery in this book revolves around an antique Russian snuff box. Hence, Much Ado About Russian.
James: Where do you get the inspiration for your stories?
Kerry: Some of the inspiration comes from my own life. I lost my mother to cancer a few years ago, and in the book, Hero has also lost her mother to cancer. Much of the inspiration just comes from things that interest me or that I believe people would find interesting. I like pop culture and you'll find a lot of pop culture references in the book. Hero and I are very similar in that regard.
James: Can you enlighten us a little more about your books?
Kerry: Hmm, what to say without giving too much away? :) Well, no sparkling vampires. (not that there's anything wrong with that) The first book has vampires, obviously, shape shifters and faeries. Other supernatural characters will appear as the series goes on. The supernatural world is all striving to solve an ancient puzzle. The Russian snuff box that is central to the plot of the first book is a piece of that puzzle. Each book will focus on the mystery as well as the relationship between the main characters, Hero and Kin.
They are light-hearted, funny and quick-paced. Hero has a great "voice". I love the way she communicates with the reader. I believe readers will indentify easily with her and enjoy her sarcasm and humor. As for the vampire angle, I believe I've added a few tweaks to the standard/modern take on the vampire lore.
James: Is there anything else you would like your readers to pay special attention in regards to your book, which you have not mentioned above?
Kerry: The faeries. The source of their magic. I may have very special plans for them in the future :)
James: When do you plan to publish your book 2.
Kerry: I hope to have it out by December.
James : How many volume of books for the above series ?
Kerry: I don't have a set number planned. Hopefully, if people enjoy it, it will be an ongoing series.
Thank again Kerry Rockwood White for joining us today. Let us wish her a fulfilling day.
