Featured Interview With Katie Blanchard
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I was born and raised in a small town in Southwestern, PA. I live just a few miles from where I grew up with my husband and our two kids. I wrangle them all day and type at night. I have a new book, a psychological thriller, due out July of 2019. Keep your eyes peeled for it; it’s called Dear Anna.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I can’t place a finger on the age, but stories have always been an active part of my life. I have always wanted to write. Writing poetry and short stories helped me cope with my teen years. I shelved the dream for so long, thinking it wasn’t possible, until one day I told my husband about it. He gave me the nudge I needed.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I will read any genre, but I do have a soft spot for women’s fiction and psychological thrillers. I love Tarryn Fisher, Catherine Ryan Hyde, and Stephen King. I’m inspired by daily life; the messy stuff. I love a good triumph or a tragedy from it all. Depends on the character.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
Well, my latest book isn’t out just yet. (Waiting patiently for July) Dear Anna is the title and its a psychological thriller about a wife discovering her husband’s infidelities. In the journey, she has to plot her way out of the marriage in secret when he holds all the cards of financial security. And we all know what happens with secrets, they leak out. Her task takes on a more sinister nature once secrets start exposing themselves. It’s going to be a fabulous book, and you should look for it. It’s on exclusive preorder with apple books right now.
