ONE on ONE with Kaitlyn Davis author of the Midnight Fire Series
1. Where Were you born and where do you call home?
I was born in Westchester, New York and now I live in The Big Apple! But my heart will always belong to South Carolina where I spent every summer growing up!
2. Tell us about something that has just/recently happened in your life that you would like to share?
I bought a couch! It's the first piece of non-TARGET furniture I've ever owned! I finally feel like my career is taking off and I allowed myself one splurge—and what better splurge than a comfortable sofa to sit and write on. The old lumpy piece of junk I'm chilling on now is going curbside :)
3. If you had to sum up The Midnight Fire series in 30 or less words, what would you say?
Heart-pumping action. Heart-stopping romance. Characters you will fall in love with and scenes that will keep you reading until dawn. What else could you want in a series?
4. If you gave Kira, Tristan and Luke an opportunity to speak for themselves, what would they say?
Hm, that's a tough one because they're all so opinionated! It would definitely depend on the topic. Here are some love angles, my favorite:
Tristan on Kira: Love of my life but always just a little out of reach.
Luke on Kira: Pain in the ass… but hopefully my pain in the ass.
More than anything, I hope they would say that I'm doing their story justice!
5. If your book was made into a TV series or Movie, what actors would you like to see playing your characters? Please Send me pics lol!!!
I'm so bad at this… so I'm cheating and deferring to my fans! I ran a giveaway about this on my blog a little while ago, and these were some of the top choices:
Kira – Emma Watson, Hayden Panetierre, Emma Stone
Tristan – Ian Somerhalder, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson
Luke – Alex Pettyfer, Lucas Till, Robert Hoffman

6. List 3 books you just recently read and would recommend to readers?
Easy by Tammara Webber – Fantastic contemporary romance that seamlessly weaves together hard struggles and swoon-worthy romance.
The Fault in our Stars by John Green – An amazing story about a girl with terminal cancer who still finds it within herself to fall hopelessly in love.
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick – Ridiculously unputdownable romance! I fell in love with Jase, the male lead.
(Clearly I've been on a bit of a contemporary romance kick! The only magical world I've wanted to think about while writing Scorch is the one I created!)
7. What is Your Favorite Wine?
Anything white and mildly fruity! Recently, I've been enjoying an inexpensive but crazy-tasty chardonnay from the Chateau San Michele Winery.
8. Is there an Author that you would really like to meet in person?
In a dream world, I would DIE to meet J.K. Rowling. I am a total Harry Potter nut—I've reread the entire series more times than I can count and I gobble down any extras I can find! And with The Casual Vacancy out, I would especially love to ask her how she was able to move on from Harry and bring new characters to life.
9. What authors have inspired your work?
So so many! Everything I read inspires me in some way, good or bad, helping me decide what sort of books, characters and plots I love the best. Some of my favorite authors include J.K. Rowling, Tamora Pierce, Cassandra Clare, Robert Fiest, and Lynne Ewing.
10. Ebook, Paperback or Hardcover?
Paperback! I love reading paperbacks on the beach during the summertime. But recently I've been reading eBooks almost exclusively because there are so many great self-published authors I want to try out. Self-publishing opened me up to this whole other book-world and I've found some great reads that way. Helps save some travel space and money too :)
11. Are you currently working on any upcoming projects?
Right now, I'm just concentrating on Scorch! I don't want anything to distract me from writing the perfect ending my Midnight Fire Series deserves! But, like all authors I'm sure, there are some new ideas percolating in the back of my mind, just waiting to be typed.
Come May, I'll have some more information for all of my readers!
12.What can readers expect from Scorch?
A mind-blowing, completely unpredictable, but hopefully satisfying end to my series! I'm sure everyone will love it. And hopefully my Team Tristan AND Team Luke fans will be happy with how the love triangle turns out! If not…I'm a little nervous about getting some hate mail :)
Thanks so much for this fun interview! I hope you enjoyed getting to know me better! It's been wonderful working with you!
Thanks for stopping by Mrs. Davis!!!
