Kiersten White of PARANORMALCY [Debut Interview]

Hometown: Highland, Utah
Astrological Sign: No U Turns.  I mean, umm, Gemini?
Favorite Author: Marilynne Robinson and JK Rowling
Favorite Vacation Spot: Havasupai, Arizona (AMAZING waterfalls in the middle of the Grand Canyon.  Heaven.)
Favorite Animal: Cute little puppies that belong to other people. Or Okapis.
Favorite Movie: Probably a three-way tie between The Fellowship of the Rings, Pride and Prejudice, and Penelope
Favorite Musical Artist or Group: Snow Patrol. I love them so, so much. Their music tells stories!
Favorite Painter: Van Gogh, but only his landscapes. His portraits are kinda scary...
Place You Desperately Want To Travel: Romania and Ireland. And I'm going to Romania this summer!
Place Most Likely To Inspire: I love empty, sweeping landscapes. See Havasupai above.
A Little About Your Book In Your Own Words:   Much as Evie loves Pop Culture, she's a little tired of this nonsense about vampires being sexy.  If you could see under their glamours, you'd see what she sees: corpses.  Which, eew.  But the International Paranormal Containment Agency is around so you don't have to know how creepy vampires really are.  And so Evie works day in and day out, bagging and tagging vamps, werewolves, hags, and the various other creepy-crawly-blood-sucky-things of legend.  It's a big job for a sixteen-year-old girl who daydreams of drivers licenses, lockers, and boys.  Especially boys.  So when something starts murdering paranormals, it's up to her to figure it out--and maybe, just maybe, get a taste of that normal life she so desperately craves.

PARANORMALCY drops on September 21st.

I love waterfalls. Unfortunately you have to have water to really see any, and we don't have much of that. I love the idea of having non-sexy vamps. It'll be nice and different, that's for sure!
