Hello! My name is Kathy Dinisi and I write in Horror.

Tell me about your book. How did you come up with that (story, angle, idea)?

My newest release is The Caverns.It comes out March 23. I first thought of this story when I first went to visit caverns In Arizona 3 years ago. It was so creepy and fun,I had to write about it.

How did you get interested in writing this particular genre (historical novels, mysteries, sci-fi, children’s books, etc.)?

I just love Horror books and movies.

What kind of research did you do for this book?

Besides actually visiting the location I had to do a lot of research on the road and creating the story.

What’s a typical working day like for you? When and where do you write? Do you set a daily writing goal?

It really depends. When I have a new release coming out, I dedicate all my time and effort on the release. After the release I start writing again. I usually write in my office.

I do, Hell Bound book 4. It should be released late 2018.

Umm, Some are very important to me. In the Hell Bound series I used family names. In my other books I just looked up names.

Places I have visited or would like to visit.

Nope, my grammar sucks. Thank god for my editor.

I would like to work in a hospital.

Do you read reviews of your book(s)? Do you respond to them, good or bad? How do you deal with the bad?

I do not respond to them. Not unless they are from my street team.

I usually try to learn from the bad reviews and try not to take them to heart. This is how authors grow.
