Electric Pulse (Author Interview)

Phantom Knights looks like a great story.  Can you tell us a little about Katrina Throne?

Katrina is my spirit animal. Her wicked sense of humor and relaxed attitude is infectious. She is best described as a fearless harpy warrior with honor. Katrina, aka Kat, knows sacrifice and pain, but what she doesn’t know is love. The harpy focuses a lot of her time protecting humanity from immortals, rather than her own happiness. I’m hoping through all her hardships she will get her happily ever after.

That’s an amazing cover.  Can you tell us a little about it?

I completely swooned when my designer sent me the first draft to my cover. I described it as a kick ass Laura Croft figure with lightning going up her arm, and my designer captured my vision perfectly. The image features Kat, the first harpy introduced in my Knights series.

What inspired you when writing Phantom Knights?   

My writing journey began when I was pregnant with my son. It is said women have vivid dreams when carrying a baby, and in this case, it was true. I dreamt of a strange world with funny looking characters. Two people stood out in my dream. One was a woman dressed in all black, and the other was a woman who could control lightning. I woke up and started writing as much as I could remember before the image faded. It took me two years to actually create a book out of the short dream, but I am so glad I did. My readers continue to push me to write more stories. As long as one person connects with my series, I’ll keep writing.

Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Phantom Knights?

Like most aspiring authors, we start as readers. I majored in accounting because writing was the dream I never knew I had. Because of this, all the experience I had writing a book came from reading. My imagination is endless. I developed the story plot and executed four books in a year and a half; however, I still have yet to master proper editing skills. That’s why hiring an expert is so important. 
Overcoming procrastination is also quite difficult. Being a mom and working full-time, it’s hard to find time to write, and when I do, social media becomes my best friend - not a keyboard.

What do you like to do when not writing?

In my downtime, I always tend to return to my first love, and that’s reading. I’ve also started exercising, which helps me clear my head.

Where can readers find out more about your work?

You can find my series on amazon. Search the words Phantom Knights Series, and the first three books will be available for purchase. Thank you all, and I look forward to welcoming more Knights to the team. Happy reading.
