Interview with @KGStutts

by Heather Kirchhoff

What made you decide to start writing?

Was this something you always thought you’d do? I started writing in high school just to help get thoughts out of my head. Songs, poems, short stories. Whatever came to mind. I would show my mother and we would have long conversations about it because these writings were basically my diary. When my mother died of cancer, I stopped writing for a long time. My best friend started encouraging me to pick up my pen again two years ago.

How do you come up with your characters or story ideas? 

The first story I started writing was a wrestling fan fiction. I’m a huge wrestling fan and actually referee wrestling matches and help run an independent promotion in North Carolina. I used to picture myself in my favorite TV shows or movies so fan fiction seemed natural to get into. Then I started having dreams where I was this woman who finds out she’s a clone. I went to bed for a week straight, having the same dream. It became my first published book, Mirror Image.

How do you get inspired to write? 

I went to bed every night hoping I would have the same dream. The thought occurred to me if I was excited about it, maybe others would be too.

What do you do while having writers block?

Thankfully I haven’t experienced it yet. (knock on wood)

What kind of stories do you write? 

Winter's Kiss
Primarily sci-fi romance. I have one trilogy, the Mirror series. I also have a series of short stories based on the origins of the characters in the Mirror series. In November I released the first book in a five-book series. I have written a few romance stories and currently working on three more.

Who are your favorite authors?

I love Suzanne Collins. The Hunger Games is one of my favorite series. I’m also a big fan of Pippa Jay, Liza O’Connor, Agatha Christie, Karen Traviss, and Timothy Zahn

How long have you been writing?

Two years, but this is my first year published.

What are your stories about?

Amethyst Chronicles is a quartet of genetically enhanced humans that is an elite team acting as a SWAT team so to speak. Winter’s Kiss is the first one in the series, launched in November. Amethyst must work with an Air Force team to stop a scientist who is using a weather machine to freeze Earth.

The Color of Dreams is a romance about Detective Julie Carter. She has dreams with visions of the future. When her husband is killed, she must work with the man who broke her heart years ago to find his murderer. Secrets unravel as they try to work together

Set in the 1930s, Maggie Piper is the daughter of a notorious mobster in Change the Stars. Her father has arranged a marriage to benefit his company, but she is kidnapped by Dean Lawrence before then.

Mirror Image is the first in a trilogy. Maddie Rhodes is a seemingly ordinary woman until she finds out she’s a clone. Now she must work with her counterpart, Mack, in order to help save the Earth, each other, and countless worlds. The second in the series, Mirror Shattered, was released in August. The team must travel back to 1965 in order to stop an alien race from taking over Earth.

What are you currently working on? 

Currently writing the second book in the Amethyst series, out in April. I’m also am working on a wrestling romance story entitled Between the Ropes and two other romances.

What do you do when not writing?

I work for a business call center for a wireless company. I love crafts and video games. Wrestling, hockey, and football are my favorite sports.
