Exclusive Story-Star Interview with Kendra Spark of Unorthodox

Hello everyone and welcome to Books We Love Blog: ) I’m S. Peters-Davis, author of Unorthodox, a paranormal suspense-thriller. Please come on in, find a comfy seat, and grab a cup of your favorite beverage – I’ve got Kendra Spark sitting across from me. She’s a mystery romance author, the main story-star of Unorthodox, and she’s agreed to an exclusive interview.

I’m totally geeked as she’s always been on the ink-side of my pen, and now she’s…well, wearing a gray and green jogging get-up that reminds me of Jenna’s (another story-star in Unorthodox). *smiles*

Without further introduction, I’m going to jump right in and if anyone else has a question or comment for Kendra, please feel at liberty to post it in the comment section – she’s ours for the day; )


SPD – Kendra, your eyes really are the most beautiful shade of violet in this lighting and your hair is longer then I remember, a lot curlier too. Do you wear tinted contacts?

Kendra – No. I don’t wear contacts or glasses, at least not yet; and my hair grew a bit longer since last we saw each other. Humidity determines the tightness of the curls in my hair, and it’s been crazy humid lately. I love the four seasons of Michigan, but boy, sometimes that humidity…whew.

SPD – I hear you. You’re north of where I live, thought it would be milder. *chuckles* How about your writing? Clara Jones is your literary agent, right? *Kendra nods* How’s that relationship going?

Kendra – Clara’s happy for the moment, but she’ll be pressing for the first book in the next series. She thrives on productive authors and she’s good at inspiring performance.  I just got back from California, signing a contract with Knixton House Publishing. Thankfully the publisher enjoys mysteries and romance…and he’s willing to wait for the next series. I have a feeling the upcoming case that I’ll be working as an FBI consultant with Derek and Jenna (in Malevolent) will be jam-packed with story potential for my mysteries.

SPD – Oh, so you’re working as an FBI consultant? As in you decided to take the job?

Kendra – I just received a proposition from FBI Special Task Force Director Jackson Powers. Apparently my ability can be an asset in solving cases. My grandmother believes it’s my true calling over everything else, including my novel writing. I’m not sure about giving anything up yet…only that I’ll be working on Director Jackson’s next case with Derek and Jenna.

SPD – So…about Jenna…

Kendra – Without giving away any spoilers…all I can say is Jenna is still working cases as an FBI criminal analyst.

SPD – Okay, understood. I’ll move on to Derek. He’s an attractive single FBI Task Force agent…one of the best, I understand. And you’re an attractive single mystery author. * I wiggle my brows* Anything you’d like to share?

Kendra – Yes, Derek…striking blue eyes, dark wavy hair, dimple on his left cheek…just up from the corner of his mouth when he smiles. *she stares off for a moment and catches herself then chuckles* It’s the writer inside me that gets a bit carried away with defining descriptions. *she shakes her head* All I’ll say is, yes, he is attractive, but it goes much deeper than his good looks.

SPD – Interesting. And something to look forward to also, but for now, I’ll move on. What is it that annoys you most?

Kendra – Being called a psychic. Not just the name, but the inflicting tone used to say it out loud. That has a tendency to leave nasty burning holes in my confidence.

SPD – I’m sorry you have to deal with nay-sayers. I know you have an amazing gift and you’re putting it to good use. I agree with your grandmother’s thought about it being a “calling.”

Thank you, Kendra, for your honest responses – I appreciate the chance to get to know you and to share this exclusive interview with your fans.

Kendra – Thanks for having me – always a pleasure to spend time with readers who enjoy the paranormal, suspense-thrillers, and romance. Thank you to everyone for stopping in – have an amazing weekend: )

Unorthodox – A Kendra Spark Novel – Releases Sept. 15, 2017

Kendra Spark, suspense-mystery romance author and communicator with the dead, is requested to hop on the first flight to D.C.

Jenna Powers, FBI criminal analyst and estranged best friend of Kendra, gets ghosticized in a fatal accident before relaying all the details of the FBI killer case.

Derek Knight, a dedicated FBI Special Task Force agent, takes lead on the case.

The investigation into the FBI agent killings continues as Kendra, Jenna – yes, even after death – and Derek work together on the case before Director of the Special Task Force Jackson Powers’ number is up. He’s Jenna’s father and the end-game of the killer’s target list.

Somehow the elusive killer remains undetected, until Kendra’s unique ability produces results and a final possibility at stopping his killing spree before it’s too late.
