This interview features, author K. K. Harris. Sit back, relax and fall in love with her romantic writing!

Welcome Kanika! It's a pleasure to have you join us. Before we begin, tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Kanika and I pen under the name K. K. Harris. I am a wife, mother, business owner, and so much more. In my spare time, I am a praise dance coordinator, president of Arkansas Author Connection, and founder of Positive Enlightenment Women’s Ministry.

Wow! That is a full plate! With all that you have going on, what influenced you to make the decision to become a published author?

My love for books will date back to elementary when our class would visit the library. I love reading all sorts of genres. Having grown a bit bored with the same story time after time, I threw caution to the wind and tested the waters with my imagination. Then I realized that I really enjoyed jotting down my thoughts and visions.

What genres do you write?

My books are centered around romance. Although I dabble with urban fiction, street-lit, Christian topics, and more—they all have romance in the mix.

Tell us about your current book project?

My latest release is ‘Blazing These Streets.’ It is the sequel to BLAZE, which is one of my best sellers. This book will tie up any leftover questions the readers of Blaze addressed. Crime, love, betrayal, and secrets will be revealed. This rollercoaster tale will definitely leave the reader with a sense of completion.

Blazing These Streets sounds like fire so readers if you haven't gotten BLAZE...get caught up! While we are discussing your books, what is your upcoming project about? When will it be released?

My next project will be a sequel/spinoff to my Christian romance, ‘The First Lady’s Choice.’ This book will tickle the romantic fancies of the readers while causing the heat to rise to an immeasurable level. This will be an interracial romance to beat all.

Let's learn more about you as a writer. When it comes to writing, are you a morning person or a night owl?

It depends on my mind honestly. LOL… Four to five in morning, I have the best flow because my family is asleep. No distractions, just me and the music that sets the mood.

Tell us a unique writing habit that you have.

My habit is writing from the hip. Every once in a while, I will create a timeline or an outline but I hardly ever stick to it.

If you were to write a book about yourself what would you name it? Why?

I just finished a book about some parts of my life and it is called ‘Never Enough.’ I have battled with depression since my early teens. I have participated in some things that I am not proud of because of those issues. Family issues and other personal issues played a major part in my life then and now. I am still undecided whether the book will be released.

What makes your writing stand apart from other authors?

I can truly say that I love—LOVE. The experiences I write about are deeply heartfelt with some realism mixed with my imagination. Also, I create my own book covers giving it a personal touch on the inside and the outside.

What are some of your other inspirations for your writing career?

I truly enjoy being my own boss. I love creating and I love the responses I get from the readers. The positive reviews inspire me to keep creating love stories.

Name your top 5 favorite books by indie authors. Why are they your faves?

Any books by EJ Brock

All titles by Sylvia Hubbard

Love Drug, Blaze, and Indecent Pawn by K. K. Harris (I love re-reading my own books, can’t lie. These are my faves.)

I hear that! Be your own favorite author! But speaking of your faves, would you like to collaborate with other authors on a book project?

Of course, I am always open to try new things.

Outside of writing, what are your favorite past times?

Music, reading, dancing, and movies are my favorite past times. I also love to bake. Another passion I have is creating random book covers.

Tell us one thing about you that is a little known fact.

I am extremely spoiled. Blame my husband, although people that know us already know.

What is one myth about being a published author that you learned and would like to share?

So many think that it is an easy job and selling books will make you rich, not true. I have learned that you must spend money to make money.

What is one lesson you’ve learned since becoming a published author?

It takes an open-mind, a positive attitude, and a willingness to learn new things to be successful in this business.

Kanika it has been a pleasure to interview you, and we look forward to your future works. Please connect with the author and check out her books and fall in love with her romantic writing!
