Featured Interview With Kari Summers
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I’m from Long Beach, California. I’ve lived there my whole life. I don’t own any pets because I have severe allergies and asthma.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I started writing at age 9. I realized in high school I wanted to be a writer. In college, I pursued a degree in journalism, until I realized that college wasn’t for me. Now, I’m focused on writing my fiction books. I’ve written four and published three. I’m currently in the process of writing books five and six.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
My absolute favorite author is J.K. Rowling. She’s an inspiration because of her life story. Rowling rebuilt her life from the ground up. It gives me hope that I can make a living off my writing.
My favorite genres are fantasy, history, science fiction, and African American literature.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
“A Journey of Flames and Love” is a romantic re-telling of my first novel “Blessings of the Firebird’s Light”. Audry and Roei are enemies trapped on opposite sides of a war. But, it now falls to them to save the world from the Fallen. They only have three days to find the Firebird’s tail feathers.
Audry joins the quest to honor her mother’s legacy. Her mother died in the civil war. And, Roei tags along, because he feels guilty for leading the troops which murdered Audry’s family.
The Fallen want the bird because it’s a being of light sent to the worlds by God to keep them safe. The Fallen are bitter with God for kicking them out of heaven after the first holy war. They believe the bird is the key to enacting their revenge. Can the heroes reach common ground, and stop the Fallen from destroying the world?
