Interview & Contest: K.T. Wells

Jen: Today we are happy to welcome K.T. Wells to Romancing the Book. K.T., please share a short bio with us.

K.T.: K. T. Wells has been telling stories since before she could read. She used to narrate books for her baby brother, concocting a plotline from the pictures. Not much has changed. One of her husband’s favorite pastimes is to listen to her tales after asking her to tell the story of people they observe in restaurants, airports or the subway.

Fascinated by the human condition, K. T.’s writing captures the emotions that drive the engines of our hearts. She is captivated by the rituals of love and believes everyone is entitled to a happily ever after.

Join her in celebrating her first published novel – Nobody’s Angel.

You can visit her at http://ktwells.wordpress.com, on Twitter at @2ktwells and Facebook.

Jen: Tell us about Nobody’s Angel and where the idea came from.

K.T.: In love since childhood, Jake and Angie broke each other’s hearts twenty years ago and their friends are orchestrating a reunion in the hopes of reconnecting the lifelong sweethearts.

These characters started talking to me and wouldn’t shut up. As there are a number of them – the book has an ensemble cast – that’s a lot of voices in my head, so to get them to pipe down, I wrote their stories.

Jen: Who has inspired you as an author?

K.T.: Everyone. I’m amazed at what people endure every day. Not just the high drama tragedy, but also the daily grind that could – and sometimes does – wear down people’s spirits. But more times than not, in the face of the heartbreak of bad news, health problems, money problems or just plain old rotten job issues, people still stand in line at the grocery store and smile, chat and spread cheer. I find that incredible.

Jen: Why do you write romance? Is there a genre you’d not write?

K.T.: Maybe this will sound naive, but I believe everyone deserves a happily ever after. While they’re out looking, I write books hoping to encourage others to find their happy ending. I don’t know what I wouldn’t write – my imagination hasn’t hit that wall yet.

Jen: What’s the most interesting comment you’ve received about one of your books?

K.T.: That a character had to be someone’s relative, they behaved so similarly.

Jen: What’s next for you?

K.T.: Currently, I’m working on revisions for next contemporary romance. The characters need to suffer some more and I’m layering it on.
