‘5 Questions’ with Kate Avery Ellison!

5 Questions

Today I’m thrilled to welcome indie author Kate Avery Ellison to the blog as part of the ‘5 Questions’ with authors series!

If you are an author who would like to participate in the series, fill out the questionnaire here! And if you are a reader who wants to suggest an author for the series, just send me an email!

Frost (The Frost Chronicles)

Describe your book ‘Frost (The Frost Chronicles)‘ in ten words or less

Forbidden romance, monster-infested forests, and a frozen fantasy world.

Where or how did you come up with the idea for your story?

Well, the book idea evolved out of a short story I was writing a few months ago, but it’s safe to say the actual novel is FAR from that original short story. The only think that stayed the same is the main dilemma–what does the main character do when she discovers a wounded and bleeding young man in the forest?

Which of your characters is closest to your heart and why?

In FROST, my secondary character Ivy is one of my favorites. She’s the main character’s younger sister, and she’s a daydreamer just like me.

Do you have a day job? If yes, tell us about it and how did that affect your writing / publishing process?

I used to work in a school, and my job allowed enough downtime that I could daydream about story ideas and make plans for future novels. Now I write full-time, and that is a blessing and a curse. It’s wonderful to have the time I need to write, but sometimes I go into full procrastination mode and get nothing done.

Tell us about an upcoming book or project you’re excited about

I’m working on the sequel to FROST right now. It’s called THORNS, and it continues the story about Lia.

Bonus Question! Fill in the blank: If you like ___, you’ll probably like my book too!
