'What made you become a writer?' by Kathy Dinisi #WinterofZombie

What made you become a writer?
   Well never in a million years did I think I would become a writer. Has it been easy? Nope haha, I’ve made a lot of mistakes with my first book.  But I feel I’ve learned from it and maybe even grew as an author.  But I always wanted to write a story, once I got the nerve to sit down and write…well I did.
How did you create your story’s?
I got the story Hell Bound (A Vacation from Hell)  thinking what would I do in a zombie apocalypse? How would I survive? How would my husband react?  Where would we go? What happens if we were not with our boys and how would we get back to them?  Book 2 Hell Bound (A world apart) just came to me.Book 3 Hell Bound (Til death do us part) will be released 2016. It will be the final book in this series.
What are you writing now?
      Currently I’m writing a Sci/fi series called Arrived it will be released January 2015. If you like Aliens this book is for you. So check back on my author page for updates.   And I will be starting book 3 in the Hell Bound series later this year.
When you write do you listen to a playlist and if so what is on it?
Heck yeah I do. I listen to theory of a deadman, Alice Cooper, Led Zeppelin, H.I.M., Dommin and many many more. I try to find music that goes with the genre I’m writing. It helps a lot.
Do you have a writing schedule?
Nope, just when I find the time. Between nursing school and the family life I barely make time to read a book. It’s all work and no play.
What helps you to write?
Watching a movie or reading a book in that genre helps a lot. Plus I enjoy junk food and a cold soda or beer while I write.
If you could co-write with any author who would it be?
No doubt about it I would love to co-write with Stephen King. That man is a master mind!

Would you want your book to be a TV Series?why or why now?
    Heck yeah! It would be awesome!!! Come on what author wouldn’t?
Favorite Genre? 
My favorite genre would be horror,fantasy and Sci/fi.
Are the names you come up with one’s you always wanted to name your children?
Yes, in Hell Bound (A Vacation from Hell) I used my boys middle name. In Book 2 A world Apart I always wanted to name my daughter Emily.
What character do you most relate to?
I most relate to Sam. I wrote that character thinking of myself and what would I do if I was in the middle of a zombie apocalypse.
