recon ameliaYesterday, I posted my interview with Kimberly McCreight. Today, it’s Author Spotlight time- we’ll find out some of Kim’s favorite things to do when she’s not writing, books she is looking forward to reading in 2013 and her #literaryconfessions.


Author Spotlight: Kimberly McCreight


Kimberly, when you are not writing- what do you like to do with your time?

I just completed my first triathlon a couple years ago.  I have fantasies of doing a half Iron Man soon, a big challenge because I am a hopeless—read doggy-paddle—swimmer.  I’m a huge baker too.  Whenever I have time, I love making cookies and cakes.  I also love modern art and theatre.  Oh, and there is so much great TV right now.  I love Mad Men, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead. 

Do you have any #literaryconfessions? 

I fell asleep during the last two Shakespeare productions I saw.  In my defense, I was very excited to see both, but was sorely sleep deprived because of work deadlines.  Legitimate excuses notwithstanding, I‘m not sure that my beloved father-in-law—a huge Shakespeare buff—will ever look at me the same way again.

What are some of the books you are looking forward to reading in 2013?

The Execution of Noa P. Singleton by Elizabeth Silver, The Never List by Koethi Zan and Tampa by Alissa Nutting
