Today I am interviewing the AMAZING Emily R King!
I am super excited because I’ve been wanting to read her novel “The Hundredth Queen” which I have an E-copy I received from Netgalley, but I have yet to start it! Hopefully this month after I finish my current reads!

ABOUT EMILY R KING
Emily R. King is a reader of everything and a writer of fantasy. Born in Canada and raised in the USA, she has perfected the use of “eh” and “y’all” and uses both interchangeably. Shark advocate, consumer of gummy bears, and islander at heart, Emily’s greatest interests are her four children. She’s a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and an active participant in her local writers’ community. She lives in Northern Utah with her family and their cantankerous cat.
The Hundredth Queen Buy-Links
1- How long have you been writing?
It’s been about eight years since I began writing with the intent to be published. I dabbled off and on during the five years prior to that.
2- Is there a certain genre you’d like to get into?
I think it would be fun to write adult contemporary romance. My very favorite author for years was Jude Deveraux.
3- Who designed your (latest) book cover?
The designer who did the cover for The Hundredth Queen is M.S. Corely, and he’s fantastic!
4- Where do your ideas come from?
Everywhere! Books, movies, people, the news—I love getting inspiration.
5- If you weren’t a writer, what would you be doing?
Growing up, I thought I would become a marine biologist and research sharks. I’m fascinated by them, and even swam with Galapagos sharks when I visited Hawaii.
6- Do you ever experience writers block? If so how do you get over it?
Writer’s block for me means I’ve written myself into a corner, so I backtrack and find where I went astray. I treat plotting like traveling. You come upon a fork in the road, and perhaps you choose the wrong way. When you realize you’re on the wrong path, you retrace your steps and go down the right road, yes? Same with plotting.
7- How did you come up with your title?
The title for The Hundredth Queen came to me immediately, as did the main character, Kalinda. This was a rare occurrence. Usually the title comes after I start drafting or even once I’ve finished the manuscript.
8- What is your perfect writing spot?
My office. I like routine, and it’s quiet. I have four kids, so having a place of my own to work is imperative.
9- What do you do in your free time?
I like to read. I also bake a lot and have several of my favorite recipes memorized. My homemade brownie bites are yummy.
10- Anything you’d like to add?
Only that I’m grateful to you for having me on your blog!
11- Do you write friends, family, or even strangers you met into your novels?
I’ve taken inspiration from people, but just bits and pieces. Maybe I see someone make a certain gesture, or they have a phrase they use a lot. I jot down those character ticks in a notebook and use them about half the time.
12- If you were a superhero what would your name be?
Hmm…I love Batman. Can I be Bruce Wayne’s wife instead? Or Catwoman! I adored her when I was younger.
❤ so happy to have you on my blog! thank you for agreeing Emily! Your answers are lovely, and yes you can totally be Bruce Waynes wife or catwoman! 😄
I hope you all enjoyed today’s interview, comment your favorite question/answer! or comment your own answer!
Tomorrow’s author is . . . . CHEYENNE YOUNG!
