Word-Slingers – Interviewing Kinley Baker

Happy Monday everyone! In my case, I’m very glad the weekend’s over and I can go back to work. The Demon Twins got a bit…troublesome, and the Shrimp, well, let’s just say he’s almost 7 and he’s been acting out a lot lately. Thank goodness for work where it’s peaceful and (relatively) quiet. 

Now let’s meet our guest for today, Kinley Baker!

1) How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing since 2008.

2) How many balls do you juggle on a daily basis, and how do you manage to keep them all in the air (usually), (ball = work, writing, family, etc.)

I work full time, write, spend time with my family, and appease an attention loving dog. There’s a lot to juggle, but it’s worth it.

3) What can you tell us about your release Excuse My Fairy? What I’m looking for is the story about how the story came to be, not just the blurb and what not. J

The story is supposed to be funny, scandalous, and a little bit wicked. It came to be by pushing myself outside my comfort zone. It’s also supposed to have a lot of heart. Relationships fascinate me and with every story I hope to explore something different. Draybeth is a grumpy fairy who finds the perfect sexy Lawman to soothe her roughest edges.

4) What is it about the paranormal romance genre that you like so much?

I love the magic and that the rules of our world can be challenged. Ever since I read Harry Potter I’ve been waiting for my letter to Hogwarts. Each day it doesn’t come, I’m forced to create a new world to escape to instead.

5) Do you think you’ll move to another genre, and if yes, what to and when?

I think I’ll always stay with romance. But you never know. I recently wrote my first contemporary, so we’ll see how that goes. I’m not afraid to take risks and chances. This ride will always be an adventure.

6) Sweet or sour?


7) Chocolate or vanilla?

It used to be vanilla. I recently changed to chocolate.

Kinley Baker has a terminally tender heart and an inconvenient sense of humor. She loves puppies and cries at celebrity weddings. Kinley believes that romance novels are the keys to world peace, because if you’re holding a book, you can’t be holding a gun. Kinley supports all supernatural lifestyles and believes “happy ever after” isn’t only for the normal. Her books Ruined, Denied and Freed are available now from Crescent Moon Press. Excuse My Fairy is available now from Etopia Press. Look for more in the Misbehaving Magics series and the final book in the Shadowed Love trilogy in 2013.

Her magic breaks all the rules. He breaks all of hers.

Draybeth is broken. Her fairy powers don’t work, her magic is completely dysfunctional, and not even her bad attitude and soft heart can win her back into Fairy favor. Exiled from their land, she struggles to make a life for herself in the human world. But when her bar burns to the ground and she meets one of the Impassables–the devastating Lawman Barrett–things become even more of a struggle. An arrest, murder, and abduction challenge everything she’s worked for, and worse, the Impassable Lawman appears to be her destined mate. But darkness stirs deep within Dray’s heart, and she’s not about to drag the gorgeous lawman down with her.

Barrett never expected to find himself mated to a fairy, let alone one with such a wicked temper and a short fuse. Being an Impassable, he should be immune to fairy magic, but Dray’s magic burns through him like lightning, just as everything else about her ignites him, body and soul. The fairy’s power over Impassables threatens everything this new realm was built upon, and as a Lawman, Barrett’s job is to make sure those threats are eliminated. But his feelings for Dray make him question just where his duty lies.

And there you have it. Hope you have a great day, everyone!
