Guest Post with Stacey Kade author of The Ghost and The Goth Series

Today I have Stacey Kade author of the book Body & Soul (which is the 3rd in The Ghost and The Goth Series).  Welcome Stacey!

 1.    What would you be if you weren't an author?
I was a copywriter for a number of years before I was an author, so there’s that. But when I was a kid, I always told my mom I wanted to be a librarian so I’d get first pick of the new books coming into the library. ;)

2.    What's your favorite book?
Oh, dear. I always have to be difficult. ;) I don’t actually have ONE favorite book. I’m way too fickle for that. I love different books for different things about them. The humor, the love story, the setting, etc. But if we go by the number of times I’ve reread a single book (and watched the various movie and TV adaptations), it would have to be Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

3.    What's your favorite thing about Alona?  Will?
Hmm. I love Alona’s snark. I think sometimes she says what we’re all thinking, even if we know we shouldn’t be thinking that. As for Will, I love that no matter how hard his life has been (and it has been downright awful at times—sorry!), he doesn’t give in to despair or hopelessness. He just keeps fighting, in his own way. Maybe not exactly in the way Alona would want him to, of course, but she’s working on that. :)

4. Any plans to write an adult book?
I have a few ideas rattling around in my head, but I love writing YA and I’ve got a full plate at the moment, which is AWESOME! :D

5. What's next after The Ghost and the Goth is done?
I have a new series starting in 2013. Project Paper Doll is the series name, and the first book is called The Rules. I’ll have more details to reveal soon, but it’s got a little more of a science fiction edge to it. Dual first person again. Ariane and Zane. :) Ariane is a genetic experiment raised in a lab for the first six years of her life. She’s trying to blend in among the “full-blooded” humans. Zane is the guy who notices something is different about her, but he can’t quite figure out what. The greatest danger for Ari is someone figuring out who/what she is, and yet, there’s this deep desire in her for someone to really know her.
And though I think there have been rumors about it being a dystopian, it’s not. (I do love those books, though!) It’s set in the here and now. Modern day Wisconsin, actually. :)

About Stacey

staceykadeAs an award-winning corporate copywriter, Stacey Kade has written about everything from backhoe loaders to breast pumps. But she prefers to make things up instead. 

From her first childhood scribbles about a magical necklace that would turn people into cats, Stacey has long been fascinated with what happens when the “ordinary” bumps up against “out of this world.” What if aliens landed on Earth? What if the afterlife is really just another dimension?

She lives in the Chicago suburbs with her husband, Greg, and their three retired racing greyhounds, Joezooka (Joe), Tall Walker (Walker) and SheWearsThePants (Pansy). When she’s not reading or writing, you’ll likely find her parked in front of the television with her Roswell DVDs, staring rapturously at Jason Behr.

  1. Lovely interview!
    I got Body& Soul and I'm saving it so I can savor it and to have to read fast.

    And Project Paper Dolls sounds really interesting. I do love a dual narrative :D


I love comments!
