Sensational 7 Q & A with Kim Harrington (Author of Clarity)!
Have you ever wanted to know what it would be like to hang out with your favorite author(s)? In an attempt to get a better understanding of authors, my Sensational Seven Q & A takes a closer or more personal look at these authors to give you a glimpse of the personalities behind the writing of your favorite books.
“Talent alone cannot make a writer. There must be a man behind the book; a personality which, by birth and quality, is pledged to the doctrines there set forth, and which exists to see and state things so, and not otherwise.” By Ralph Waldo Emerson
Kim Harrington lives in Massachusetts with her husband and son. When not writing, she's most likely reading, watching one of her favorite TV shows, or fantasizing about her next vacation. She has no psychic powers and is cool with that.
If you were given a chance to travel back in time, what year or place would you go / Why?
If I could also lower my age at the same time, I’d love to travel to Dublin, Ireland in the 60s and party with my mom, both of us as teenagers.
Describe your novel in seven words or less?
Paranormal mystery, psychics, tourist town, hot boys.
Please share with us about your favorite book and fictional crush to date?
My favorite book changes all the time, but of the past few years it’s The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – for its edge of your seat pacing, characterization, everything.
My fictional crush would have to be Boston boy Patrick Kenzie from Dennis Lehane’s Kenzie/Gennaro series.
If you could be any character in fiction, whom would you be / Why?
Oh man, my favorite characters have tough lives. Conflict drives fiction! So, I think I’ll pass. ;)
If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see playthelead role as you/ Why?
Maybe Jennifer Garner. I respect her work and I also think she’s a great mom. And from what I’ve seen in US Weekly we have the same wardrobe (baggy sweaters, jeans, running shoes).
If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be – please explain?
NERD GIRL. I was a socially awkward dork growing up who sometimes thought of my geekiness as a road block to happiness. Now I’m all grown up, I’ve found happiness, come to terms with my nerdiness and become proud of who I am. There’s a character arc for you! :)
How would you describe yourself/life in seven words?
Girl with nose in books writes some.
**Is there any additional info you would like to share with your readers about what’s next for you and your books?**
First off, I want to thank everyone who buys CLARITY, from the bottom of my heart, for taking a chance on a debut author. I truly appreciate it! Up next is the sequel to CLARITY coming March 2012. I also have a standalone supernatural mystery—a ghost story—coming from Scholastic in Fall 2012.
