Evie’s Knight by Kimberly Krey

Welcome to Author Kimberly Krey

I’m a writer of romantic Urban Fantasy, a reader of any good, clean romance, and a lover of home, family, and friends. A perfect day would include ample relaxing time with my hubby and kiddos (indoor or out). Add delicious meals involving seafood, chocolate, or Cafe Rio and I’m on cloud nine. End it with a novel by one of my favorite authors, Marcia Lynn McClure, and it’s picture perfect.

As far as movies go, I’m not sure it gets any better than The Notebook, The Lake House, or How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days – for chick flicks anyway. For family, my favorites include Elf (seriously, does it get any better than that?), Napoleon Dynamite, Overboard, The Grinch, Bedtime Stories, A Christmas Carol, Puss in Boots, and about one million more.

Interesting (or not) random tidbits about me:
I’m obsessed with chapstick. I spread SoftLips chapstick (the pretty pearly kind) on my lips about a hundred times a day.
I’m equally obsessed with mints; I eat them all the time. Altoids Smalls are my favorite. I smooth the lips, pop the mint, and I’m in good shape.
My favorite super heroes are Superman and Spiderman. I can’t really decide between them, which is fine because my husband happens to be a scrumptious combination of the two!

Interview:
What is your favorite way to spend a rainy day?

One of my favorite times to run (outside of course) is while it’s raining. There’s something amazing about taking in that cool fresh rain water while you’re working up a sweat. I also love getting in our covered hot tub while it’s raining out. I love the contrast of the heat and the cold, and I absolutely love the sound of rain as it pelts the tin awning above; totally dreamy! 

Shoes or Sandals?
Bare feet, actually. Always bare feet. My dad used to get after me for driving barefoot even if I had no plans to get out of the car. (Does this reek of a drive-through junkie?) He said the car could break down and then what would I do? Sadly, I still drive barefoot while taking the kids to school, picking them up, and, of course, grabbing fast food through the drive-through. 

Write a Haiku about your book:
Evie falls in love
Calvin’s cursed from decades past
Now the ghost is back

In your wildest dreams, which author would you love to co-author a book with?
I’d never say ‘no’ to co-writing with Stephanie Meyer, but I have to say I’d really love to write with my romance writing favorite, Marcia Lynn McClure. I read her books repeatedly and absolutely love the way she can put me in the funnest, sweetest, most romantic adventures in a blink. She is wonderful!

Gum or Breath Mints?
Breath mints. I’m addicted to Altoids Smalls. 

What is your guilty pleasure? 
Reality TV, but not all of it by any means. I love Survivor, Big Brother, and The Amazing Race.

If you were a super hero what would your kryptonite be?
Laundry – hands down. This morning I went into my kids’ bathroom to collect it and was so disgusted by the sheer volume I had to whip out my phone and take a snap shot. I hope to guilt the kids into staying in dirty clothes forever, or at very least stop changing their clothes two and three times a day. 

What’s the best advice anyone has ever given you?
Best advice came from my mom shortly after I got married (big surprise, right?). “Pick and choose your battles,” she told me. And it’s a  good thing she did, cuz we can never win them all, nor do we want to. Comes in handy for parenting as well. Thanks, Mom. 

What inspired you to want to become a writer? 
Good writing, plain and simple. I read a series that I never wanted to end. And when it did, I wanted something that would capture me in the exact same way. That’s when I started to consider writing something myself.

If you could have any superpower what would you choose?
As far as superpowers go, I’d seriously love to fly. But I’d settle for something a little more domestic. Say, the ability to take an article of clothing (or a giant heap of it) and make it magically clean and Downey fresh in a blink. Bam! 

Evie’s Knight

EVIE always thought college life would be magical, but so far it’s not what she hoped for. Her best friend has gone wild, her love life is void, and she misses her mom more than ever. But life for Evie is about to change.

CALVIN KNIGHT, the very object of her fascination, is about to fall madly in love with her. Just one problem: Their love conjures a murderous woman from beyond the grave who wants Evie dead. The same demon who has haunted the Knight men for over four generations.

CALVIN’S grandfather used to speak of this woman, and Calvin always doubted the legends were true. Yet when he falls in love with Evie, he senses the truth of it, the danger lurking among them. Guilt follows each time he enjoys the taste of her kiss. When he pulls her close and whispers her name, he’s haunted by an inner voice that warns him Evie’s in danger – because of him.

Soon Calvin is forced to choose: Set Evie free and hope to evade the wrath of The Raven-haired Ghost, or use his newly gifted strengths to fight against her. If he chooses to fight and wins, Calvin will free the Knight men of this demonic witch. If he loses, Evie will become her next victim.
