About Kayla Krantz:
Proud author of a number of fantasy and thrillers, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
What inspires you to write?
I draw my inspiration from a number of sources including music, pictures, and dreams. I think the number one way that I gain inspiration is by seeing pictures on various social media accounts. It doesn't really matter what the content of the pictures are. If they're striking enough, my brain tries to create a backstory for them and sometimes that develops into an entire novel.
Tell us about your writing process.
My writing process is actually quite complicated. When I begin a new project, I first write it all down in a spiral college-ruled notebook with a fountain pen. Pen on paper helps me gather my thoughts better than writing on a computer. After I finish my first draft in the notebook, I transfer all the writing to loose-leaf paper that I keep in a binder. After this draft is when I finally type it on the computer and look for things such as plot holes or areas where characters need development.
How do you develop your characters?
My characters almost always have something to say. When I start a story, I try to have an idea of how I want my characters to be, but they end up deciding their own personalities as the plot goes on. At first, it was frustrating, but I'm learning that the characters finding their own way makes my writing better, easier, because I'm not forcing them to sound a way that doesn't work.
Who are your favorite authors?
This is a tough question. I've expanded my reading horizons, and I adore so many authors. I'll give my top six: Stephen King, Lynn Weingarten, Caroline Kepnes, Ruth Ware, Mary Kubica, and Kevin O'Brien.
These authors all have a handful of wonderful books, however, I will single out Lynn Weingarten because her book "Bad Girls with Perfect Faces" is my absolute favorite book. I must've listened to the audio version 100+ times.
What genres do you write?: thriller, psychological, horror, new adult, romance, fantasy, paranormal
