“Objects in Motion”

Today’s A Haunting of Words interview is with author Suanne Kim.

 

Title: Objects in Motion

The last four years have been difficult for Miles. In a stroke of luck, he finds love under the most unlikely circumstances–while rescuing strangers in a subway station.

Mattie is everything he’s ever wanted: witty, beautiful, intelligent. Or is she?

What inspired you to write this story?

I had no intention of submitting. I was engrossed working on my novel, “Prism.” But the sheer challenge of writing about a haunting called to me. And I liked the supportive camaderie of the Fiction Writing group so I decided to throw my hat into the ring last minute.

 

How long have you been writing?

Like most writers, forever.

 

What genres do you most associate with in your writing?

I write mostly poetry, lit fic, women’s lit, crime fic and romance. But like my many of my main characters, I enjoy a challenge so I don’t limit myself to genres or styles. I’m always up for trying new things.

 

What are you working on right now?

I’m working on a novel called “Prism” about a woman who wakes up in a hospital and has no memory of being viciously attacked along with her boyfriend. The man who calls 911 for help disappears and the detective tries to piece together the mystery surrounding the event. Is the caller the culprit, accomplice, witness or another victim?

I’m also working on a short story about a Korean woman–a former thief and assassin–who’s out for revenge.

 

What else do you have available/published?

I’ve had poems published with Newtown Literary and Nomad’s Choir.

 

What advice do you give to new writers?

Hone your craft, keep reading, and develop a thick skin when asking for critiques. All are lifelong endeavors.
