Getting to Know Kevin Scott Collier
Topic: Author Interview
  Kevin Scott Collier the person:

1.  What three words do you think describe you as a human being?

Humorous, hyper and naughty

2.  How do you think others would describe you?

The same.

3.  Please tell us what you are most passionate about outside of writing.

Encouraging others to make their dreams come true.

4.  Do you have any pets?  If so, introduce us to them.

No pets, but I've always loved cats. My mother and 4 siblings all own cats.

5.  What is your most precious memory?

The day I became a father, adopting a 9 year old boy named Jarod.

6.  What is your most embarrassing memory?

Every day there is one, so I'll pass on this question.

7.  If you weren't a writer, what would you be doing with your life?

I would be part of an outreach program, helping kids become achievers.

 8.  In two paragraphs or less write your obituary.

Kevin Scott Collier expired today while sand boarding down a huge hill. He is survived by his wife, son, and tons of gummy bears.

Kevin Scott Collier the writer:

 9.   Can you describe the time you realized you were indeed a "real" writer?

When a publisher contracted me to a book deal based on a short story I wrote for a niece. I was then writing a real book, then it hit me.

10.  What is going on with your writing these days?

I am writing a sequel to the 2005 book "Esther's Channel," and also am working on various other projects. Most of the time I am illustrating books, so I do both.

11.  What are your future goals for your writing?

Retire with enough royalties to life comfortably and then go fishing.

12.  Can you describe a typical writing day for you?

No day is typical. I juggle projects as they come up.

13.  Why do you write?

Because I have something to say. If you're going to be a writer, you should always write with purpose.

14.  What writer most inspires you?  Why?

My wife, because quite simply, she (Kristen Collier) is so good.

15.  How do you define your writing?

Dialog and emotional oriented. My stories make people think about what unites us and divides us as people. I have always thought the way to reach a reader's mind is through their heart.

16.  In one sentence-what do you want people to say about your writing in fifty years?

That it stood the test of time. People and emotions don't change much over generations.

Kevin Scott Collier the details:

17.  Can you tell us where to find more information on you? Website?  Blog?

18.  Is there a place where readers can reach you?

My email is:

19.  Can you list all your book titles so people can look for them?

I have had over 60 books published, the best thing to do would be to visit my homepage. They are all listed there with links to purchase online.

20.  For new readers-what can they expect when they read your book(s)?

They can expect to think about life and to be entertained. It's not just a story, it's a journey.

In conclusion:

21.  Take as much space as necessary to speak to our readers-what would you like them to know about you and your writing?

Writing should be a form of communication that touches one's heart. When you buy one of my chapter books, you will see bits of yourself in there, and maybe answers to become a better you.
