Interview with Andrea Kane

Q: What is your daily routine as a writer?

A: My day doesn't begin until I've had my morning cup of coffee. I love my new Keurig. It lets me brew one cup at a time so I can keep the fresh caffeine stream coming. Then I check emails and look at social media (Facebook, Twitter) before I start writing. I take frequent breaks to play with my Pomeranian or Google something for research.

Q: What is your favorite part of the writing process?

A: My favorite part is getting fan mail from my readers, letting me know my characters are as real to them as they are to me. I especially enjoy receiving feedback on my animal characters, since I’m such an animal lover. With the FI team, I’m thrilled that so many readers are attached to Hero. I have a feeling he will be center stage in future Forensic Instincts novels.

Q: Is there a specific element in your writing that you find most challenging?

A: Descriptions. I’m much more audial than visual, so I tend towards writing “she got dressed” rather than detailing her clothing. Whereas dialog comes naturally to me, so I concentrate hard on being more descriptive.

Q: Which author inspires you most?

A: It depends on when you catch me. There are so many talented authors, each mastering an element. I go back as far as Carolyn Keane, when I first started reading mystery novels as a kid. I was a big mystery reader, so later it was Agatha Christie and on to Robert Ludlum. Now I read all genres, and my most memorable ones are the ones that are character based.

Q: What, do you feel, is your biggest success?

A: From a professional standpoint, hitting the NY Times Bestseller list and hearing from my readers about how I’ve impacted their lives. But on a personal note, being a mother is the most rewarding role I fill.
