Author Interview – Keira Michelle Telford

Who is your favorite author and why? I have several, but Oscar Wilde features prominently. The Happy Prince was one of the first stories I remember reading as a child. It was certainly the story from my childhood that stuck with me the most.

Can we expect any more books from you in the future? I hope so! There are 3 more books yet to come in the SILVER Series. The 7 books already released are collectively called The Amaranthe Chronicles, and the series completes with The Outlier Trilogy, coming later this year.

Have you started another book yet? I’m currently working on a new trilogy. The Prisonworld Trilogy – comprised of The Magistrate, The Procuress, and The Grifters – is something new for me. Set in neo-Victorian London several hundred years in the future, this dystopian, steampunk-esque romp through the streets of London’s East End centers on the complicated relationship between two women who desperately want to be with one another, even though homosexuality is strictly outlawed.

Where do you see yourself in five years? Hopefully much the same as now, except maybe writing at a proper desk instead of a footstool in the living room. It’s where I see myself in thirty years that’s really scary, ‘cause by then, I’ll be a crazy recluse living with a hundreds of guinea pigs and only leaving the house at night.

Do you have any advice for writers? Write what you love. Don’t compromise for anybody, and don’t be afraid to tell it like it is. If graphic language suits the text, don’t water it down to make it more palatable for the masses. If the story gets gruesome, then so be it – don’t tame it for fear of offending a potential reader or two. The trick is knowing what’s appropriate for the work, and that’ll start to come naturally with practice.

What do you do to unwind and relax? Writing and relaxing are one and the same to me, but petting a guinea pig can also be pretty soothing. That’s why I have 9 of them.

When you wish to end your career, stop writing, and look back on your life, what thoughts would you like to have? End my career? Stop writing? What? These words are foreign to me.
