Author Interview - Kirsty Ferguson

To continue my commitment to promoting other authors this year, this newsletter interview is with KIrsty Ferguson. Like many authors, Kirsty finds it hard to promote herself or to say very much so though her answers to

my questions are short, you need to read more about this great author.

Goodreads suggest that Kirsty is a crime, mystery, thriller writer. She is a born and bred Australian author whose stories centre around strong, capable, yet flawed women, with dark themes and undertones, designed to make you question what you think you know about the people you're closest to. It also suggests that Kirsty chooses to deconstruct and enthrall her readers with the secrets of an everyday person, the stories behind closed doors.

Kirsty grew up in a rural town, on a farm and likes to base her stories in isolated places, physically, mentally and emotionally. She has long been a lover of reading and writing, beginning her professional career in 2015.

Kirsty is the author of several books:

Never Ever Tell

The Silent Daughter

Who Do you Trust

LIttle Girl Dead

What lies Beneath us

Littel Girl Revenge

Severed Heart

Fire and Rain

Though I haven't yet read one of Kirsty's books, I like a good mystery and so have decided to add her book to my list to read this year.

Here is her interview:

Q1. Tell us a little about how you started writing.

I’ve always had a deep love of reading and a creative imagination that begged to be heard. When I was younger I preferred to escape to the worlds and characters that I created so I put pen to paper and I never stopped.

Q2. Are you traditionally published or an Indie author and why did you choose this way to publish?

I started as an indie author then I signed with an Australian publisher and soon after that Boldwood Books in London. I’m returning to my indie roots for my next book as I’m writing in a different genre.

Q3. What genre do you write and why did you choose this?

I write psychological thrillers with damaged but strong female protagonists, usually mothers who deal with either mental illness or domestic violence. I write what I know and what shaped me over the years. I feel it necessary to acknowledge women that bend but do not break.

Q4. Do you belong to a writer'

s group-and if so, why?

I have in the past but currently no. I believe connecting with people who understand the fear of a blank page or have agonised over cutting pages is good for the soul. Everyone needs a tribe.

Q5.What are you currently working on and when do you intend it to be published?

I’m heading in a different direction with this book. I’m working on a supernatural story which I’m finding both challenging and exciting. I don’t have a release date yet. Since it’s a new genre to me I’ve decided not to put an end date on it.

One reader asked Kirsty about advice for aspiriing writers and as I read it, felt it was something I usually say too. Her advice: This is a tough question as each person, each writer is unique. The standard answer is to just keep trying. While this is true, I think believing in yourself is the best advice I can give.
