Short, Sharp Interview: K S Hunter

Crime Fiction, K S Hunter, Paul D Brazill, short sharp interviews


PDB: What’s going on?

I’ve been busy becoming K.S. Hunter. That’s not my real name. As myself, I’m an international bestselling author and I’ve written three novels. I’m typically a crime thriller writer, so when a new avenue made itself apparent, K.S. Hunter was born.

PDB: Do you listen to music when you work?

Absolutely. I tend to choose a song that helps me feel a certain mood that is necessary for a scene or a novel in general. It’s a great tool for atmosphere building. With my latest novel, Just One Time, which is about a woman who becomes obsessed with a man and ultimately tries to destroy him, I listened to ‘Poison’ by Alice Cooper again and again.

PDB: What makes you laugh?

The sitcoms of the past. Even though I’ve seen some so many times, they never fail to lighten me up. I’m thinking of shows like Fawlty TowersOnly Fools and Horses and Keeping Up Appearances. I also love 3rd Rock from the Sun.

PDB: What’s the best cure for a hangover?

Drink more.

PDB: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

San Francisco. It’s the only place I’ve ever truly felt at peace. Gorgeous green mountains in the near distance, a beautiful bay and a bustling city. It has everything.

PDB: Do you have a bucket list? If so, what’s on it?

Take a cruise somewhere glamorous and travel to the Far East and Australia.

PDB: What’s on the cards?

I’m preparing for the release of my ‘first’ novel, Just One Time, which will be out on December 7th. It’s a steamy psychological thriller about a woman who won’t take no for an answer from an unsuspecting man she meets at the theatre in London. She pursues him to New York, where she reveals she’ll only leave him alone if he sleeps with her, just one time.

PDB: Anything else?

If Just One Time is a success, K.S. Hunter will return with another novel, which I’ve already started. But if things don’t work out, I think that story will become a sequel to my international bestseller. Time will tell…

Bio: K.S. Hunter is the pseudonym of an international bestselling author. The identity of the author, who lives in the United Kingdom, will remain a mystery.
