A. K. Dailey is a published romance author of the book trilogy, Beastly Love. She’s always been a lover of the romance genre and all the different happily ever after stories that she discovers every time she reads a new book. A. K. has been writing since the young age of thirteen in middle school.
One morning during her art class, she sat beside a classmate who was writing her own stories but they were ones she decided to never finish so it left the endings untold. But discovering that a person could write their own stories, A. K. decided to give it a try and write her own. That was the beginning of her track to her author career.
Now with her first novel of her trilogy under her belt, A. K. hopes to continue writing and discovering new worlds, romances and happily ever afters of her own with her characters as she comes up with more books to create.
Q: How often do you write?
A: I manage to write between thirty minutes to an hour a day. Though I try to write as frequently as I can.
Q: Where do you get your inspiration?
A: Depends. I mostly get my paranormal or fantasy ideas just by looking at a fantasy illustration or watching a really good supernatural TV show like ‘Beauty in the Beast‘ to help my creative juices flow. Watching that show is how I came up with my first trilogy.
Q: What’s your favorite genre that you like to read?
A: Romance, of course. But I have a specific taste of paranormal, urban fantasy, science fiction, contemporary or fantasy. Those are the main genres that I go to when I want to read a good book.
Q: Do you consider yourself a Pantser or a Plotter?
A: I actually consider myself something of a Planster. A combination of both Plotter and Panster. For the most part, I pants through my writing but I still need a brief skeleton to help lead my way. Along with a bit of information of what I want to appear in my scenes.
Q: Was it your dream to become a published author?
A: No, in the beginning, my dream was to become a comic book artist or a music composer. I’ve been writing stories since I was fourteen. But back then it never occurred to me to publish them. I’ve had friends and other classmates during school tell me that I should consider turning my works into a real copy of a book. At first, I laughed it off but once I turned eighteen, I decided to give it a thought and tried it. I haven’t regretted it since.
