I recently jumped at the opportunity to interview one of my favorite writers, Amanda Kyle Williams, for She Reads.
I’ve admired Amanda’s work since reading her first book in the Keye Street series, The Stranger You Seek. In 2012, Amanda and I spent a great morning exploring the Georgian Terrace Hotel, also known as Keye Street’s upscale Atlanta address. Amanda was one of the first authors to agree to an interview here on Southern Spines. We had a great time eating Krispy Kreme doughnuts (one of Keye’s favorite vices) and talking about the second Keye Street novel, Stranger in the Room. You can read that interview here.
Book Three, Don’t Talk to Strangers, came out earlier this month and it might be my favorite Amanda Kyle Williams book to date. I wolfed it down faster than one of those hot, fresh glazed doughnuts. Like any good series writer, Amanda introduces some new characters, new eerie twists and turns, then leaves us clamoring for the next installment. In the She Reads interview, I asked Amanda about the rural setting of Don’t Talk to Strangers, balancing the creepy with the funny in her storytelling and plotting what’s next for Keye Street. Rush right over to read her answers AND for your chance to win all three of the books in the Keye Street series.
