The Amazingly Talented Keira Kroft

KK: Hey there, Momcat thanks for having me! I love it here, those hot covers on the side are all calling my name :D

     AMC: You are most welcome here in my world.  Shall we get the party started?  Where did you grow up?

KK: Oh yes, I love a party. I am from Sweet Home Chicago the land of…da, Bears. But I have recently moved to a quiet suburb in the outskirts of the city and I love it.

AMC: Do you think your childhood impacts your writing?

KK: My child hood, no. My years as a single mother…absolutely.

     AMC: Are you married, single? Children?  

KK:  Married with a daughter in college. In other words fat and happy :)

      AMC: Who do you read?  What genres do you enjoy? Can you list any that you think we would enjoy? 

KK: I read it all, anything and everything. I am like Johnny five…alive. Well, being the owner of Hellfire Publishing I can tell you that you would love any one of our authors. We sought out the best of the best and we found them.
  AMC: Who is your all time favorite author and why? 

KK: I am excited to say that I am going to be meeting Anne Rice and Charlaine Harris, I do adore their work and I love my vampires. However, my favorite writer of all time has always been John Saul.

        AMC: Ebook or paperback?  Why? 
KK: Personally I like to hold a book in my hand and I find a bookstore to be paradise. But readers are so cool, you have to admit. Especially in the day of the Kindle Fire and the I pad.

     AMC: How many books do you read a month? What are you reading now?

KK: A lot! I am editing a wonderful story called Toe Tags and Tequila and in my spare time I am reading The Walking Dead graphic novels.

    AMC: What's your favorite way to relax and recharge? Hobbies? 

KK: My hobbies, dreams and work are all rolled into one. I always wanted a business of my own and now we have two. Hellfire Publishing an independent Book publisher and Hellfire Comics a busy comic book store in Westfield Chicago Ridge Mall.

     AMC: Do you have a favorite quote?  Does it have a special meaning to you? 

KK: “Go to Heaven for the climate. Hell for the company.” This quote has special meaning because it comes from the dark years of Mark Twain. Also, growing up in a household where you grandmother is a minster with her own church, you have to agree that the “evil” people of the world are more fun :)

Fun Stuff.  Why?  Because Mom Cats are curious creatures!

Favorite color? Emerald green

Favorite food?  Pizza

Favorite time of year and why?  Fall, I love absolutely everything about it. The weather, colored leaves, pumpkin stuff and Halloween

KK: You are the Interviewer but I have to ask. Why is your nickname Mom Cat?  

    AMC: LOL Thank you for asking! When Bruce and I first started dating he had an abandoned kitten (her name is Shahu)  whom he had to bottle feed.  He became the Dad Cat I became the Mom Cat.  It stuck.  We do have a second cat her name is Daisy Daredevil.  She is eighteen years old.  I decided it would be a great name for my blog. I have had other nick names as well (some of them we don’t talk about LOL)

KK: And do you like cats? I have to spoiled boys Scamper and Sawyer they even have their own page on my blog. Their my pride and joy :) My daughter is cringing right now wondering where her blog page is. “Sorry kid you’re not sweet and furry”, lol :) My nickname is Demon Mama, but I really don’t think anyone wonders, why, lol :)   

    AMC: Do I like cats?  That is a no brainer.  I love the purr babies!  Last year we were approached about fostering kittens.  Bruce did not say know but wanted me to really really think about it.  I came to the conclusion that there was a good chance that I would become the crazy cat lady because it would be difficult for me to give them up once I had become attached.  And I would become attached.
