Please welcome author Kay Blake to RNIC today. She’s stopped by for an interview and to share a bit of info about her newest release.
What type of music do you listen to?
Honestly, I am very much an old soul. I don’t really listen to music that currently plays on the radio. I like oldies from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and early 2000s. I even like some songs from a little after like 2010 or so. R & B, Pop, Classical, Rock, and Country. I think I have music tastes for different things.
What are your favorite types of movies to watch?
Horror first and for most. Give me a good horror or paranormal horror movies and I am all in. I do like romance movies (epic romances or romantic comedies), comic book movies (Marvel) and I like a good thriller or suspense movie.
Name three authors (living or dead) who you’d like to sit down to dinner with and pick their brains.
Stephen King (he is the king), Maya Angelou and J. K Rowling
What adjectives would your close friends use to describe you?
Sweet, sarcastic, mom figure, bookworm, intelligent, fiery, sensitive
Did you always want to be a writer? If not, what else did you want to do?
I wanted to be a criminal prosecutor and a singer.
Do you have a single book or character that’s dear to your heart, and why?
Yes, Sam from Second Time’s A Charm was an ode to a friend I lost some years ago and her name was Samantha. I put a piece of her in that story.

What can readers expect from you next?
I am working on a rock star romance. A short that inspired by a person I know and book 2 in The Kim series I started.
Here’s a peek at Ms. Blake’s latest release:
I have reached rock bottom. The kind of bottom that is so dark, there is no light at the end of the tunnel. There is nothing, but pain, loneliness and helpless despair. I didn’t picture my life going this way. I wasn’t suppose to be unhappy and broken.
How can someone find the good in me when all the good I had was taken from me?
Helping people makes me feel good. I don’t do it for any accolades. I do it because when I needed someone to talk to, when I needed someone to keep me from spiraling out of control, I found it.
From the first time I saw her, I knew that there was something about her. I didn’t know what, but like a gravitational pull I wanted to know more about her even if she was here only to find some support for her grief.
Maybe I couldn’t solve her problems, but I wont let her face them alone.
