About the author
Kat Green was born Nov 1979 into a military family, and moved around alot during her childhood. This shaped her into the person she is today. At ease with meeting new people and adapting to new surroundings. Her family roots are from Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire. Kat now lives with her husband and son on the south coast of England, Portsmouth. She doesn't pretend to be the best, and is still growing as a writer and having fun along the way. She loves books and has a busy imagination. Her love for music plays a big part in her first novel, Strings. Kat loves to watch live bands, and can usually be found at gigs around the UK. In 2010 she lost her mother to blood cancer and it was time to put her words on a page and stop worrying about what people might say, 'Life is too short and precious to waste' is her motto. Writing is her passion and her escape. If you like what she does, she says 'Thank you!' For those who don't, she says 'Thanks for giving her a chance.'
1. How is the sequel going?
Really well. I am just going through it and making sure I am happy with the story as a whole. Tweaking where needed. I will hand it over very soon to fresh eyes.
2. Are you planning on writing any more books in the future?
Yes. I have a few ideas. Although my focus is completing The Strings Series. I have thought about doing some short spin off stories about the Characters in Strings. But, that is just an idea at the moment. I'm not promising. Luke and Dale as Kids and how they became friends, that sort of thing. Don't hold me to that as timing is the issue for the moment. Also, a completely different line of books. We will see what the future holds.
3. What made you choose this genre?
My love of music and books. I decided to combine the two together.
4. Did you find it hard writing the sequel to Strings?
Only that I have readers now. Before I didn't. There are expectations and I hope I don't let anyone down. I found that I had learn't a lot through writing Strings and that did help. I am still excited and terrified. That's a good thing it keeps me on my toes.
5. Who do you base your characters off?
I don't really base them on anyone. The only one was Jean (Melissa's Mum) she was a memory to my mum. Jean Webb was my mothers middle name and maiden name. It was more the name that was important. The appearance isn't my mum but her personality, maybe, a little.
