Author Interview - Kathryn Miller Haines - Blog Tour

Please welcome Kathryn Miller Haines to the blog today!


You write both adult and YA mysteries. Is there a specific book you credit for sparking your interest in the genre?

All of them? I can’t say there’s one mystery that I remember making me want to write mysteries, I just know I’ve always loved the genre and that it was something I wanted to learn to write. Books that don’t have a mystery as part of their plot always feel incomplete to me.

Why did you choose a historical setting for you series instead of modern day?

I really wanted to explore what it would be like to be a teen at that time. There are not a lot of books that allow you to experience that era at that age and I thought it must’ve been a fascinating time to be approaching adulthood.

I adore Iris! What (or who) is the inspiration behind her character?

I’m so glad you like her! I think Iris is an amalgam of Nancy Drew, Veronica Mars, and me and my friends at that age.

If you could travel back in time, where would you go and what would you do?

I would probably go back to world war II, to check my own accuracy, and see first hand the people and places I write about. I would also love to see my own family when they were young.

Best vacation you’ve ever taken?

Hard to pick just one, but I think the time my mom drove my sister and I from Texas to Canada, to Boston, then down to Florida to go to Disney World was pretty awesome and memorable (single mom + teenage sister + pre-teen me). There were a lot of missteps on that trip (roach infested hotels, etc.) but there also a tremendous amount of fun.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
