Author Spotlight – K. P Gazelle

 

The_Color_of_Happiness_KINDLEFaith Lane is the girl who has everything.  At least, that’s what everyone thinks when they see her rocking a killer dress while laughing with her best friend, Tiffany.  But Faith’s life is far from flawless.  Her peers torment her relentlessly, and her parents expect her to be the epitome of perfection.  Criticized and pressured at school and home, Faith retreats into silent acceptance and finds an escape in her passion of dancing.  Then she meets Alex – quirky, forever with a pass, and concealing a mysterious secret of his own.  And through his encouragement, Faith starts believing in her gift for dance and gains courage to stand up for herself.  But will she be able to keep her footing when the events of one night consume her with the need to jump off the rocky cliffs near her coastal home?  And what has pushed her to the edge of reason?

 Author Bio:

K.P Gazelle has been connected with young adults in some way for as long as she can remember.  She’s obsessed with coffee, books, and big dreams.

In the hot seat – an interview with K. P Gazelle

1.  How did you come up with the title?

The title was inspired by Faith’s love for fashion.

  1. Are experiences based on someone you know or events in your own life?

There definitely are some elements in the book that are inspired by people and events from my own life. I’ve been blessed to have friends who support me, which is one of the themes of the book.

  1. What book are you reading now?

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I loved Eleanor and Park, and I’m SO excited to get into Fangirl as well.

  1. What was the hardest part of writing your book?

Hmm . . . editing was definitely a pain. Revising, revising, revising!

  1. Do you have anything specific you want to say to your readers?

To always keep faith no matter what you’re going through life! This is one of the central messages of The Color of Happiness.

  1. Do you suffer from writers block?

Oh, yes! Sometimes, I’m just not feeling it and it shows in my writing, which I promptly delete!

  1. Do you use an outline or just write?

I just write. Although, I do have a general idea of where I want the story to go.

  1. What is the best piece of advice you’ve been given by another writer?

To keep writing and reading.

  1. Do you start with character or plot?

It just depends; it really can go either way.

  1. What kind of questions do you ask yourself when you get an idea for a project?

I like to get to know my characters, so I’ll ask myself questions about him or her. What are her hobbies? What’s her favorite food? Etc. The answers don’t necessarily always pop up in the story, but they’re important in building the character.
