Author Interview: Kristina Knight

EQ Welcomes Kristina Knight

EQ: Welcome to EQ! Tell us a little bit about yourself!

Kristina: Hi, everyone! I'm Kristina, a working mom and wife who writes contemporary romance…and probably spends a little too much time lusting after shoes on Pinterest and geeking around on Twitter.

EQ:Tell us a little bit about your most recent release.

Kristina: Light My Fire is the first in a trilogy of stories about Anthem, America's hottest rock band. Lily and Nate are friends (and he's her brother's best friend) who indulge in a little 'with benefits' action…and things get a little out of control from there.

EQ: What has been the most exquisite moment of your life?

Kristina: Getting engaged to RadioMan. It's a goofy story but he took me to a cliff-top restaurant overlooking a lake. Romantic dinner, the whole nine yards. And then, after, we took a walk on the beach…where a swarm of evil flies hit us and would NOT go away. We finally out-ran them and he hands me this velvet rose (this was our third anniversary) and I said, "Oh, this is nice," while thinking he's giving me a fake flower? On our anniversary?!?!? And he's just watching me with this expectant look on his face, so I smile and thank him. And he tells me to open it. Only I can't figure out how to open it (it's dark by now, I don't see the hinges) and after about five minutes he yanks it away from me, opens it and there's a diamond ring inside. And he says, "So are we getting married or what?" I squealed. He was so annoyed but he should've known by then I am a complete dork and totally not coordinated…I, of course, accepted and have spent the past 12 years making my dorkiness up to him.

EQ: What are your top three guilty pleasures?

Kristina: Reality Television (I like them all but talent shows are my favorite), gourmet chocolates from a local place … I have 1 bite and need to run a marathon but that 1 bite is sooooo worth it!, and playing hookey with RadioMan and bebe when deadlines are looming.

EQ: What is the biggest risk you’ve taken in your writing?

Kristina: Responding to an email from an agent; I was published with a small press and hadn't really thought a ton about getting an agent. But I took a chance and I couldn't be more happy with my agent or my career. It's been a great ride!

Thanks for being here, Kristina. That proposal sounded like a hoot. Good thing you got past that and got married. And there's certainly nothing wrong with geeking after shoes. I do that with purses.
