Today, I have the privilege of interviewing the talented YA author, Tiffany King. Tiffany King is the author of a beautiful Saving Angels trilogy. In her first book, Meant to Be Krista Miller’s only sense of comfort comes from a boy that visits her in her sleep.
Tiffany, do you have a boy that visits you in your dreams like Krista?
No but I wish hehehehe….wait don’t tell hubby that 😉
Tiffany has three books in the Saving Angels series out now. Meant to Be. Forgotten Souls. The Ascended. Which of your books is your absolute favorite?
I love the last book in The Saving Angels Series, The Ascended, since I got to explore one of my favorite characters, Haniel but my newest book Forever Changed is my favorite. It’s the kind of story I liked to read when I was younger.
Tell me about the Paranormal Plumes? My friend, Nichole Chase (yes, I’m name dropping lol) talks about it all the time. As my next WIP is a YA, I’m thinking I should join. Are you taking awesome peeps like me?
The Plumes are absolutely awesome (love Nichole) we support, encourage and help each other out. Every Plume has something unique they bring to the group.
Tiffany, can we hear a lil something, something about your current WIP?
My newest novel is about Eighteen year old Kimberly who gets the shock of her life when she learns the father she thought was dead is not only very much alive, but never even knew she existed. Angry with her mother for lying all these years, Kimberly flies to Utah to meet the father she knows nothing about before heading off to college in the fall.
Her father’s world turns out to be nothing like she expected. Rather than the typical nine to five lifestyle, Kimberly’s father runs a summer foster camp that teaches young children skills to build their confidence and self-esteem. The Utah Mountains are a different world than the sunny shores of California, taking Kimberly completely out of her element, and causing her to second guess her spur of the moment decision.
Never being one to quit anything, Kimberly is determined to show her father that a surfer girl can fit into this rugged mountain wilderness. That is if she can deal with Mason, an arrogant nineteen year old boy that has made it his mission to point out every mistake she has made since her arrival. While she would love nothing more than to rub it in his know-it-all face, Kimberly can’t deny the feelings he stirs up inside her, or the chemistry between them, even during their verbal assaults.
When a tragic accident leaves them stranded in the mountains, Kimberly must use her shaky skills to save Mason and survive the elements. Suddenly, fighting is the last thing on their minds as they must rely on each other if they want to live. In their struggle for survival, they realize what they thought they knew about each other isn’t true after all.
That sounds really interesting. I love life or death situations. Not to be in them, just to read about them of course. Writing scenes like that is high on tension, but you know what else is high on tension don’t you? YA romances. Do you think YA sexual tension is easy or harder to write than an actual sex scene?
I think the tension is definitely easier to write. I love leaving stuff to the imagination 😉
Tiffany, here’s a just for fun question. Who would win in a B-fight: Barbie or Rainbowbrite?
Rainbowbrite would totally kick Barbie’s butt. She’d blast her with a rainbow for sure.
Here’s a blurb to Tiffany’s book, Meat to Be:
Krista Miller feels like she has lived her entire life in a glass box with her every emotion on display. She can’t help feeling like a defect as her sensitivities have made her socially inept and without any real friends; the one exception being the boy that visits her each night in her dreams.
Krista’s emotions are put to the test when a move to California triggers a devastating change to her fantasy world. The nightly comfort that the boy provides has now become a recurring nightmare as he is taken from her by an unseen force.
Struggling to appear normal, Krista enrolls in a new school and finds it to be nothing like she thought. Her new life is sent spiraling out of control from a strange connection with a boy, Mark, who claims to know all her secrets.
As Krista begins to explore the emotions that Mark evokes in her, secrets about their mysterious past and their predestined purpose threatens to separate them just when they have found each other.
