Laina Kenney is a classically trained singer/instructor with a regular job and a deep love of the written word. Her family is supportive of (or perhaps just resigned to) a house full of books in every genre, with ancient history and romance taking up the majority of the space. She cheerfully admits to having a bizarre sense of humor and enough shiny accessories for any ten women. One of the greatest joys in her life is exploring the wonder of testosterone, both in prose and in person.

Q: When did you start writing?

A: My first ‘book’ was written and illustrated in pencil-crayon. Although that little book didn’t survive my childhood, the writing bug did. I write music, poetry and prose, keeping notes on anything and everything that sparks my interest.

Q: Do you write every day?

A: I try to take one day off weekly to recharge  my mental batteries, spending time with friends and family, walking outside or curling up with a good book. However, I have been caught writing on an off day when a deadline approaches or inspiration strikes.

Q: How does your family feel about your writing?

A: My family is very supportive of my creativity even though they don’t always understand it. They barely even blink anymore when I suddenly start muttering about my imaginary friends.

Q: What is your typical day like?

A: On a regular day, I’m up early re-reading and editing the previous day’s writing. I work a normal day carrying a notebook with me to jot down ideas and then I usually write for 1-2 hours in the evening before I fall into bed.

Q: Do you always finish one idea before moving on to the next?

A: I am usually working on at least two or three ideas at any given time, but one might be an erotic romance while the other is a choral song or a short story. I think each one of my various writing endeavors enriches the others, because sometimes a song will inspire a story, or vice versa.

Q: Are you disciplined about the hours you write?

A: I’d love to be more disciplined about time, but there have been moments where I suddenly realize that I’ve been madly writing until 3:30 a.m. and I have to get ready for work in a couple of hours even though I haven’t slept yet. The good part is, when that happens, I know it’s an interesting story.

Q: What do you do about writer’s block?

A: If a story or song isn’t working, I try to put it aside and move on to another idea for a while. Usually, if I leave it alone and work on something different for a few days or weeks, I can then go back to it and see where I went down the wrong road. Sometimes I will throw out a whole chapter and let the characters move in a different direction. There are times when I almost believe the characters are deliberately trying to surprise me.

Q: How do you feel about e-books?

A: I am in love with e-books and the total convenience of being able to buy a book when I want one, without having to wait for the store to open or take the chance that they won’t have in stock what I want to read. The minimal storage needed for hundreds of e-books is also a biggie for me.

Q: Do you have any consuming hobbies?

A: I am a trained singer and a mad quilter. Books, musical instruments and cotton batik fabrics have taken over a big chunk of my life. Finding time to keep these hobbies going is sometimes difficult, but they give me two much-needed stress relievers in the times when my story characters are refusing to follow my carefully laid-out plots, LOL.
