Interview with Kathy Finfrock

Interview with Kathy Finfrock

What genre do you write and why?
Mostly thriller, mystery, and horror. I would say this genre is infused in my brain. The first toy I remember was a Casper the Ghost doll. The first television show I saw was the Munsters. A few years later, I moved on to The Outer Limits, and Chiller. You can see the pattern. The saying goes, “Write what you want to read.” The horror I write is always fiction. I prefer the made-up monsters as an escape from the real monsters that exist in our world.

Interview with Kathy Finfrock
Tell us about your latest book. 
House of Redemption is a about a group of eight people who have avoided paying the consequences of their crimes, be it criminal or immoral, only to find they are trapped in this house. The only escape is to repent their evil ways. The problem is no one is truly sorry.

Who is you favourite character in your book and why?
I would say Dee as she chose to stop seeing herself as a victim. She had the most growth. Not necessarily a growth in the right direction.

Did you learn anything from writing your book that was unexpected?
What surprised me from my readers is that so many loved the character of Washington who has a minimal part in the story.

Why do you think readers are going to enjoy your book?
A lot of people have been victims of someone who used or abused them, but because the culprit isn’t arrested for lack of evidence or it isn’t considered a “real” crime, the only recourse is to say Karma will pay them back. In House Of Redemption, they’ll experience Karma kicking butt.

Interview with Kathy Finfrock
How was this book published? (traditional, small press, self pub, etcc...)  Why did you choose that particular publishing route?
I chose to self-publish. House of Redemption doesn’t follow the format of recapping every few pages. I can’t tell you how many times I want to throw a book across a room because it keeps repeating what I already know. I didn’t think a publisher would accept my non-compliance.

What is your work in progress? Tell us about it.  
It’s a psychological thriller about a single mom with a young daughter. She marries an artist who has a twisted twin sister obsessed with him.

Who or what inspired you to become a writer?
My friend Travis challenged me. I accepted the challenge and surprised myself that I could do it.

What are you currently reading?
 I have just started Kind Nepenthe by Matthew V. Brockmeyer.
