Shifting into High Gear: Author Kitty Keswick of FREAKSVILLE
It's my great pleasure to introduce the fabulous Kitty Keswick, debut author of FREAKSVILLE, and fellow member of the Class of 2k10. FREAKSVILLE is another story dealing with werewolves (and she's packed in some other paranormal fun, too!).
Here's a blurb about the book:
A group of teenagers, trapped in a haunted theater on the night of a full moon, find out that ghosts are the least of their worries… Every woman in the Maxwell family has the gift of sight. A talent sixteen-year-old Kasey would gladly give up. All she wants is a normal life. Shopping and talking about boys with her best friend and long-time sidekick, Gillie Godshall, consume her days. Until Kasey has a vision about Josh Johnstone, the foreign exchange student from England. The vision leads her into new realms, a lead in a play, a haunted theater ... and into the arms of Josh. Yet, both Kasey and Josh have secrets lurking in dark corners. Can Kasey’s new romance survive FREAKSVILLE?
ME: What was a big change in your life you were scared to make but was a change that wound up way better than you expected?
KITTY: My life is still in a stage of constant flux. I’ll let you know how it turns out, later. :-)
Kasey Maxwell is the series’ main female character. She’s sixteen, attends Stony Creek High School in the fictional town of Stony Creek, California (A.K.A FREAKSVILLE) says: “accepting my freakish gift. My biggest worry, that I won’t be able to protect the ones close to me.”
ME: Kasey has her work cut out for her. Having recently read this book, I can say I really enjoyed Kasey's snarky and self-deprecating nature. The fears most of us had as teens are made somehow even more familiar in Kasey's voice as she leads the reader on an intriguing journey winding ever closer to danger and spooky realizations!
