JQM PRESENTS A BLOG POST INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR Kayelle Allen
TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF:
I’m Kayelle Allen. I’m a science fiction author, a US Navy veteran, I’m married, I’m a mom to three grown children and a grandmother to five ranging from 10 to 19. I write Science Fiction and Space Opera, Science Fiction Romance, Fantasy, Contemporary, and non-fiction. I’ve been published since 2004 and have over a dozen books. I’m active on Twitter as Kayelle Allen and I’m on Facebook under the same name. I use my Instagram account mainly to follow cosplay and cosplayers, especially Nik Nitsvetov, who has cosplayed my character Pietas from the Bringer of Chaos series and many books in the Tarthian Empire series. I blog regularly on my own website and I’m a guest on others. You’ll find me at most Romance Studio parties. On my site and take the tour of the Tarthian Empire. It’s a series of pages each devoted to a single planet in the empire. Many of my books take place there.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO WRITE?
I grew up reading science fiction and watching movies and TV shows in that genre. My parents loved and I caught the bug from them.
WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE AUTHORS? WHY?
One of my favorites is fantasy writer Heather Gladney, but I also enjoy JR Ward and JD Robb.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE BOOKS? WHY?
Teot’s War (Gladney), Lover Mine (Ward), Naked in Death (Robb)
WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE LITERARY CHARACTERS? WHY?
I should list the characters in the books I mentioned, but I’ll say Bagoas from The Persian Boy by Mary Renault. Hands down, my favorite ever.
IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO SHARE WITH POTENTIAL READERS?
I’d love for them to check out my website and click Visit a World. That takes them through a tour of the empire where many of my stories take place. And next, they should check out the Gateway.
