What literary pilgrimages have you gone on?
I’ve loved to write since I was very young, and that love was born out of my love for reading books. I spent time in the library looking for books which would allow me to enter the world of the characters. That’s how I’ve chosen to write my books. I want my readers to laugh, cry, and get angry right along with my characters. So my journey to a love of writing started when I was young and it continues through today.
What is your writing Kryptonite?
LOL! This is a really great question because when I write, I truly envision my characters as they interact. My Kryptonite issue isn’t writer's block, where I can’t figure out what to write. My issue is having too much or too many options to write that will get me to the same ending I desire for my books.
Did you ever consider writing under a pseudonym?
Yes, Brey King is a pseudonym for me. My real name is Kim Beasley.
Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?
I try to be original while giving the readers what they want. It’s truly important for me to deliver books which will pull my readers into my books.
How did publishing your first book change your process of writing?
With the first book, I just wanted to get the thoughts in my head down in writing so that I could start my creative process. My first book was a stand-alone and it was a regular adult contemporary. In the second book, I wanted to start a series and thus I had to think about how I wanted the series to flow through four books. So more thought went into the planning of my second book which allowed me to create three additional books.
If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?
I would tell my younger self not to fear publishing my writings. Allowing fear to stop me from publishing is a regret I have but I don’t let it stop me from writing now.
What was the best money you ever spent as a writer?
The best investment I’ve made is paying a designer to create my book covers. Also, I used the same designer for all of my books which allowed for consistency.
As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot?
I love peacocks and butterflies because both of them represent beauty and freedom to me. Peacock symbolism: Vision, Royalty, Spirituality, Awakening, Guidance, Protection, & Watchfulness.
How many unpublished and half-finished books do you have?
I’m always working on ideas for books or book series. Currently, I have two different book series that I’m working on. The book series that I'm going to be publishing next is Dragonbourne.
Do you read your book reviews? How do you deal with bad or good ones?
I read every review and I learn from what is shared. There are some who actually give me feedback that helps me make my books better. Every review is very important to me and I look forward to receiving them.
What is your favorite childhood book?
Wow, this is a hard question because I have so many. The first one that comes to mind is Winnie the Pooh and the second is Little Red Riding Hood. Each of these have a special way of relaying a time old story that impacts.
What is the most difficult part of your artistic process?
For me, the most difficult part is making sure I don’t have too many characters in a book which I feel can draw away from the main characters. I love to keep my books balanced yet at the same time make my characters believable as well as lovable.
Does your family support your career as a writer?
My family supports me in my writing career. The biggest supporter that I had before she passed was my mother. She encouraged me to be the best I can be regardless of what I chose to do. As I write, I keep my mother's inspiration in mind.
