Author Interview – Keira Michelle Telford

Have you developed a specific writing style? Omniscient third person present tense has sort of become my thing.

What is your greatest strength as a writer? My attention to detail.

Have you ever had writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it? For me, writer’s block (or brain fog, as I call it), usually means there’s a problem with whatever scene/chapter I’m working on. If I try and force it, nothing happens. Instead, I have to take a step back, maybe watch an hour of TV, or listen to some music, and wait for the kink to work itself out. It inevitably does, and in some cases results in the whole ending of a book changing … or the beginning … or the entire book.

Can you share a little of your current work with us? SILVER: The Lost & Damned is the second book in The SILVER Series, but have no fear – this book also stands alone. So if you haven’t read SILVER: Acheron (A River of Pain) yet, don’t sweat it – you can start with The Lost & Damned and it’ll still totally work.

How did you come up with the title? I was listening to a lot of music by a band called Kamelot while I was writing the book. One of the songs on their Ghost Opera album inspired it.

Can you tell us about your main character? Ella ‘Silver’ Cross is tough. She wouldn’t be caught dead in dresses or high-heels, and she knows way more about guns and ammo than she does about lipstick and eyeliner. She’s ballsy, and even though her fearlessness can be an asset to her work in the Hunter Division, it often makes her reckless.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? Ultimately, it’s a love story. The world might end, but love endures.

How much of the book is realistic? I’ve tried to handle everything in the most realistic (often graphic) way possible. From the love between the two main characters, to the gory killing scenes.
