Interview with Kate Willis!

What was the first story you completed?

I’m pretty sure my movie-script-turned-epic-and-tragic-love-story “The Secret of the Kingdom” was the very first rough draft I made it to the end of at age eleven or thirteen. Obviously, that story will never see the light of day (*cringes at everything I can remember of it*), so the first story I finished to my satisfaction was The Treasure Hunt, my first book. 😉


Who is your biggest inspiration when you write?
My family is my biggest inspiration. All of my stories, medieval, sci-fi, contemporary, you name it, have an element of family life in them, and I study the interactions of my loved ones (especially my little nephews) and infuse them into my writing. I also study random strangers, but this can get awkward, so don’t try it at home. 😉

Jesus Christ and what He has done for me is also a big inspiration. Whether I consciously want to or not, Biblical themes find their way into my stories and often learn through writing them.

Of the books you have published, which is your favorite?
Oh, wow, this is like choosing between children. O.o. 😉 I’d have to go with my most recent novel Kiera, because #1, it’s my first full-length novel!! 😀 😀 And #2, the themes are very close to my heart and I love the characters.

And of my current WIPs, “Imperfect” is my favorite. It’s giving me the least trouble, and I (currently) love everything about it. 😀

Out of all your characters which is your least favorite?
That’s actually a really hard question… I’ll have to go with Drewin from The Twin Arrows, but I barely dislike him. (And I have cool plans for him, so…)

What is your favorite Christmas tradition?
I really love celebrating Advent with my family. Each segment of the celebration builds toward the manger and helps keep me centered on the true reason for our celebration, Immanuel. 🙂 Also, we usually eat cookies, sing songs together, and generally have a precious family time.

Thanks so much for having me and asking such original, interesting questions!
