Featured Interview With Heather Kirchhoff
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I’ve lived in the same town in Missouri all of my life. I have a dog named Shadow and a betta fish.
I currently work at a nursing home full-time. My dream is to become a full-time author, though.
I want to write in all genres in my lifetime, but right now I have YA and paranormal books published. I’m also in thirteen anthologies.
One of my short stories, Save Me, was selected to be published in Apocalypse my sophomore year of high school.
When I’m not writing, I enjoy reading, taking pictures, walking, and spending time with my animals, family, boyfriend and friends.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I was thirteen when I fell in love with books. My sixth grade reading teacher had suggested The Phantom Stallion series by Terri Farley to me and I immediately became hooked.
I started writing the summer before seventh grade. So it’s been about seven years.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I love reading YA and paranormal stories.
Richelle Mead, Alyson Noel, and Stephenie Meyer inspired me to write.
I remember reading the end of Twilight and wanting to make others feel the same way I did while reading. Vampire Academy made me want to write even more and Evermore sealed the deal.
I also love reading books by Kate Marie Robbins, Rue Volley, Genevieve Scholl, Bree Vanderland, Nadege Richards, Line F. Nielsen, and Melina Turner.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
It took me a year to write this book. I’m still working on getting it ready for publication, but it’ll be available either late 2018 or early 2019. It’s up on Goodreads now.
Forever Yours is a YA book about two people who met in a restaurant. It also has a paranormal element in it. I loved writing the story.
Kateline is the antagonist of the story. She’s one of those people who gets shy when meeting someone new. So it’s no surprise when she attempts to get away from the stranger she runs in to, even though he’s interested in getting to know her.
Her friends, Kelsey and Melissa, are the exact opposite of Kateline. They think she should put herself out there and live her life.
Here’s the summary:
One thing leads to another…
Chris sees a beautiful girl walk into a restaurant and can’t imagine allowing her to walk away.
Kateline was just hanging out with her friends when a stranger approaches her.
Now, four years later, they are stronger than ever together.
But there is one thing weighing on Chris, and he’s constantly fighting with the voice in his head encouraging him to tell her. He knows he needs to, especially after all this time, but can never find the words.
When Chris takes Kateline on a surprise romantic getaway for Valentine’s Day, whispers about a huge creature appearing in the woods is suddenly the town’s gossip. At first Kateline ignores those comments, knowing there’s nothing to worry about with her boyfriend by her side, until one night she wakes up and finds her partner gone.
