My guest today is K.S. Brooks, truly a mystery herself. When asked about herself, she responded:“Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.” – The Wizard of Oz. "That’s what I like to say when people ask me that. I’m a full-time writer, and I like to hide behind my characters."
Intriguing, indeed. Here is the rest of the interview:
How many books have you written, K.S.?
I read a lot when I was younger. Bookworm would have been the perfect word to describe me. So the impact that these books had, to stand out above the rest, I think says a lot – to me anyway. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (pere) taught me how to round out characters; pretty much anything by Oscar Wilde inspires painting with words; Rudyard Kipling magically provided a moral to the story; and Warren Murphy’s Pigs Get Fat was a fantastic lesson in writing better suspense.
