Author Interview: Kimber Leigh Wheaton + Giveaway! (INT)

Today I'm featuring an author interview I did with Kimber Leigh Wheaton, author of Shadow Fire. 
There will be also a giveaway so don't forget to enter it below!


Hi Kimber Leigh and welcome to Bookfever and thank you for letting me interview you!

1. Shadow Fire is your debut novel. How would you describe it in a few sentences?

Shadow Fire is a lighthearted, fun adventure with a touch of whimsy and a sweet romance. My inspiration for the story came from playing a few too many RPG video games—it's quite apparent in the plot.

2. Which famous person, living or dead would you like to meet and why?

There are so many, but if I could only choose one, I'd like to meet Leonardo da Vinci. He's such an enigmatic figure with so many conspiracy theories surrounding him. I'd love to pick his brain and see if any are true.

3. Who was your favorite character to create in Shadow Fire?

Well, I'm quite attached to all of them. But the pirate, Taranis, holds a special place in my heart. His dialogue was always so much fun to write. In fact, I liked him so much I decided to feature him in Light Chronicles Books 1.5 and 3.

4. What three books would you recommend people to read?

High, epic fantasy — The Dragon Prince by Melanie Rawn
Gritty romantic suspense/mystery — Naked in Death by J.D. Robb
Fun YA paranormal — Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

5. If Shadow Fire would have a theme song(s), what would it be?

Alive by Adelitas Way

6. If you could jump into any book and live in that world, what book would it be?

Ooh, a toughie! There are several that come to mind. I guess it comes down to whether I'd be willing to give up indoor plumbing…
Pawn of Prophecy by David Eddings — I think it would be fun to live in a fantasy world filled with magic, majestic creatures, adventure, and epic battles.

7. Is there anything else you'd like to share?

Stolen Moon, Light Chronicles Book 2 is coming this summer. The characters from Shadow Fire have a cameo in Stolen Moon. I'll also be releasing my YA urban fantasy novel, Tortured Souls, this summer. Thanks so much for having me :)

Thanks, Kim! =)

Ashlyn – a free-spirited teenager whose peaceful life is shattered when the village elders honor her with a perilous quest to recover a stolen relic.

Zane – a jaded mercenary, torn by his undeniable desire for Ashlyn and the dark secret that could make her hate him forever.

About the Author:

Kimber Leigh Wheaton is a YA/NA author with a soft spot for sweet romance and is a member of Romance Writers of America.

She is married to her soul mate, has a teenage son, and shares her home with three dogs and four cats. No, she doesn’t live on a farm, she just loves animals. Her house is filled with dragons, though she does lament that they are the porcelain, non-flying variety.

Kimber Leigh is addicted to romance, videogames, superheroes, villains, and chocolate—not necessarily in that order. (If she has to choose, she’ll take a chocolate covered superhero!)

Her debut novel, Shadow Fire, is the first book in The Light Chronicles series. Watch for book two, Stolen Moon, a standalone sequel, coming soon.
