A Moment with A. L. Kay

1-Tell the readers a little about yourself.
My name is A.L. Kay (pen name of course) and I am a writer, mother, psychology student and I am co-owner of a publishing company
2-As an author, do you take time to read? If so, what do you like to read and who is/are your favorite author/s?
When I find the time to read, I do.  I do not have a favorite author, too hard to choose.  I like to read the dark paranormal romances more (YA usually).
3-How do you stay motivated when the Muse is uncooperative?
I switch to writing something different.  The best thing I find is if I hit a wall on one story, I work on a different one.  
4-If you could go anywhere in the world on a romantic getaway, what would you do and where would you go?
Probably either the Bahamas and go scuba diving, or to the mountains and just be together with my husband.

5-What is the hardest thing for you to write?
Romance seems to just be so tough for me to write and I do not know why at all.  The darker romances I can do easier than just plain romance.
6-If you could live the life of one of your characters who would you be?
So far, I would be Jacey.  Jacey is the main character in a story I am still writing.  The book does not have a title yet.  It’s still pretty new.
7-The tag line on my blog is ‘Indulge Your Inner Romantic.’ What do you do to indulge?
What do I do to indulge in romance?  I spend time with my husband and cuddle, watch movies, play video games (yes I can find this romantic in some ways), go on trips together, and a bunch of other things.  Did I mention I love Chocolate covered cherries and strawberries?  ; )

Welcome A. L. Thank you so much for being here. Help yourself to the buffet. I see Chef Aanan has returned. And there are plenty of chocolate covered cherries and strawberries. And not to be outdone. Tyrell (bartender) has prepared a special red wine punch.

Switching WIPs is something I've done for years. And for me to work on 2-7 manuscripts at one time is the norm. Although lately the Muse has been very focused on one task.
