Word-Slingers (2/2) – Interviewing Kristal McKerrington

Here’s my second post and I hate doing this without Word. ARGH! We need to buy a new copy soon. Had no idea how dependent I was on it for blog post pre-editing. 🙂
1.    How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing for gosh this will be my 16th year. I’ve been writing professionally for 3 years. Dance took over my life before that. 

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.)

Oh gosh. Really good question. I juggle screenwriting, show creating, author work, family and health every day. Just have to schedule my time and hope nothing runs over the time I’ve got for it. 

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

Well In The Shadows came out of a odd encounter. I was a dancer and we use to think of the ways to make the story we told with our bodies stand out. We did the “would you rather game.” Everyone knew I’m a fan of wrestling have been since I was 5/6 years old. I’m 24 now just encase your doing math. I got asked a hard question between two wrestlers. How would I rather mess around with

I answered with something funny. Handcuff one to the ropes play with the first one then do the second one. The story started to form back then. I didn’t write it up from the notes we played with back then until last year when L. Anne Carrington started to talk me into writing wrestling erotica. 

4.  What is it about the erotica genre that you like so much?

Well the freedom you get in the Erotica genre is also what makes it the hardest portion of the industry to write. You have to make every scene force the reader to want to know what happens next. I like the challenge. Through the Erotica genre I learned about wrestling erotica and the challenges it offers to me.  

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

I move from genre to genre. I want to do a military themed book at some point. I think it will add to what I can do and make the readers experience more of what I have on offer. 

6.  Sweet or sour?

I like both. Depends on my mood.

7.   Chocolate or vanilla?

Vanilla. I can’t eat Chocolate. If you follow me then you know why.

Kristal’s been a professionally published author since 2010. She’s a monthly writer for Calling Spots magazine. She created and wrote on Romance and The Wrestler for Bishop-Lyons Entertainment. She’s represented by Barone Literacy Agency. She’s been a best selling author for XoXo Publishing. She’s appeared on TMZ a few times and writes with Reem Vision.

Jasmine got obsessed with a wrestler and now the wrestlers obsessed with her. Steamy nights, kisses and rules being broken at every turn. She turned his whole world upside down and now he’s doing it to hers. In this free fall, can they survive each others love? Will she take him from the wrestling mistresses arms?
