Please welcome Andrea Pearson, author of The Key of Kilenya and The Ember Gods! After reading this most enjoyable interview, read on about the books and how to win them!




Konstanz: Romance or action?

Andrea: A little of both, though I mainly write action. I like reading romances, but something needs to be happening to propel the story forward. And I love it when action has a little romance. :-)

Konstanz: What writing cliché bothers you the most?

Andrea: When it's used correctly, it doesn't bother me, but many, manyauthors get the following wrong:
"All of a sudden." I've seen it as "All the sudden," "All of sudden," and "All a sudden." It drives me nuts! :-) And they're not usually typos—the authors consistently get them wrong in the same way all the way throughout their stories.

Konstanz: What's your greatest inspiration as a writer?

Andrea: My readers. The best thing in the world is getting to know my readers and having them encourage and uplift me. Next, my husband, family and music. Also, sugar-free gum is big. :-)

Konstanz:  Describe your ideal date with The Joker (from Batman)

Andrea: It would start at Olive Garden, and would end with Batman rescuing me and taking me to his mansion to watch a movie and have hot chocolate. :-) And of course, I'd find out that Batman is really my husband. That would be the perfect date. :-) (With The Joker, of course. :-))

Konstanz: What is your hardest challenge as a writer?

Andrea: Maintaining an effective schedule where everything important gets done, especially my writing and editing. Also, understanding which things are important and which aren't. :-)

Konstanz: What is your favorite thing about Christmas?

Andrea: Family, Christmas lights, hot chocolate, and presents—watching people open theirs and getting new stuff. :-) Yes, I'm still a kid. :-)

The books:
