Author Spotlight - Davidson King
Today I am so happy to welcome Davidson King!
Tell us a little bit about yourself: I'm a bisexual married woman with three kids, I run the LGBTQA Review and promo blog Diverse Reader. I have many publications under my pen name Davidson King. I love coffee, elephants, sunflowers, autumn, and reading all the books.
How would you describe your brand? What makes one of your books inherently YOU?
I would say I'm a romance, suspense writer. I love writing the antihero and writing within the gray areas of society. I don't feel the world is black and white and I feel we are living in a time where we do what we can to get by and sometimes those things are questionable. For that reason I relate to the sinister side of my characters.
Tell us about what you're currently working on.
I'm currently working on book 3 in my Joker's Sin series called Heart Beats. Each book in that series is a standalone so that's a plus. After that will be book 4.
If you could dream cast your favorite book into a movie, whether yours or someone else's - what book would it be and who would you cast?
This is such a hard question seriously so difficult. So I'm going to cast my last book that published: To Die For. I'd like Sparkles to be played by Robert Sheehan and Antonio Cupo as Max.
What is the weirdest place you've ever written before?
on the toilet. I'm not lying. I had a good scene and no one would leave me alone so I went in the bathroom and wrote.
What does the writing process look like for you? What comes first? How do you start? When do you know you have a good idea vs a dream?
I always do bios for characters first and a thin plot. I outline with bullet points so I don't write myself into a corner. Descriptions, dates of birth all of that. I start with the thought of, "If this was a movie how'd I want it to begin?" I know it's a good idea when I can't get it out of my head.
If you could write about any character or story that you haven't written about yet, what would it be and why?
I want to write a vampire book. I have one plotted so I just need the time.
Which of your characters do you think is the most under appreciated and why?
I think for sure the most underappreciated character I have is Lee from my Haven Hart series. He's brilliant, quiet, he's loyal, and has a vast knowledge of so many things.
What is your favorite book? One of yours and one of someone else's.
I will pick of someone else's because I suck at picking my own. Story Of Us by Barbara Elsborg is outstanding.
Favorite show to binge watch?
I'm currently finishing up Mindhunter and it's amazing so I will go with that
What movie have you seen more times than you want to admit?
Favorite quote or song lyric:
I love so many quotes and use many often. One I tell my kids all the time is "Look where you're going, not where you've been."
Is there anything else you want anyone to know?
I can't wait until life goes back to the crazy normal we're used to
