C.A. King

C. A. King was born and raised in Halton County. She currently resides in Brantford Ontario, Canada with her two sons.

After the loss of her loving parents and husband, Ms. King was devastated. She decided to retire from the workforce for a year or two to do some soul searching. It was during this time that writing became her passion. She found she was able to redirect her emotions through her writing and in 2014 decided to publish some of her works.

Today C.A. King has thirteen different titles available, with more scheduled for release. In her spare time she writes a weekly column, articles and book reviews for Books & Quills Magazine.

1.            When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
This question is actually one of my 'pet peeves'. We are all writers at heart. Some of us pursue it a bit more than others, but everyone has written a story at some point in their life.
2.            What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
If I open my laptop, I can write for hours. It's physically opening it that takes effort on my part. I procrastinate far too much, especially on social media. Of course, I can chalk that time up to promoting and marketing.
3.            What do you like to do when you're not writing?
I love reading. I find it exciting to see how different authors form their voice in literature. Then again I play a few facebook games, love animal memes and adore Groot as well.
4.            What makes your book stand out from the crowd?
I take old myths and legends and breath new life into them. I've always been told I have a different perspective to most people - that is what shines through in my stories.
5.            What do you enjoy most about writing?
Writing for me is an escape. Real life problems melt away in fantasy realms, providing a break, similar to a vacation. That is a feeling I want to be able to share that with others. If I can make one person smile and make their life a little happier, even for a few moments, then I am, in my opinion, a successful author.
