The AMAZING K. Webster agreed to do an interview for me. Here are the questions and her answers.
K. Webster is one of my favorite authors. I randomly stumbled upon one of her books, Pretty Stolen Dolls, and liked the blurb so I bought it. It took me a few months to actually read the book but once I did, I was hooked.
K. Webster writes dark romance and taboo mostly. Her books will either make you squirm in your seat because you are wondering who is going to die next and how or they will make you need to drink of ice cold water because they are so HOT!!

Book Related Questions: **SPOILERS BELOW**
- I have read 13 of your books so far and have loved them all. I started with Pretty Dolls Series (I jumped in feet first) and I’ve been hooked ever since. How did you get the idea for these books? I usually get inspired by a trait of a character on television or a trope of a book I’m reading or a song. Then, little tendrils of ideas begin to start making their way through their mind. Sometimes, they grow into something cool!
- What is it like writing with Ker Dukey? Love that girl! She and I are equal parts evil. I have to force her to stop killing everyone and she has to force me to take out 98% of the sex I try to sneak in early. We make a great team.
- Vlad, I just finished reading this book and WOW is all I can say. What made you and Ker decided to have a spin off from the Pretty Dolls Series? We just really fell in love with Viktor. He was soooo damn sexy and we couldn’t just be done with it. We wanted more.
- Is it hard to keep all the different families in Vlad separated? Do you ever get confused? We don’t get confused because we created the world, although Ker spells all their names wrong and I have to yell at her.
- Whispers and the Roars is probably my favorite book of yours so far. How did you come up with idea for Kady? That book sat in my mind for a long time. At least a year before I attempted to write it. I love reading and learning about the human mind and psychological disorders. I thought it would be interesting to write a love story with someone with her issues. Once I had the idea, it began to formulate but it took me nearly a year to totally execute it properly.
- What was the hardest part to write in this book? The epilogue. I cried when such integral parts of her left as they were no longer needed. It was a moment of growth but it was sad.
- HOLY PLOT TWIST. How hard was it to not giveaway the plot twist but still give enough information that readers might have been able to pick up on it? Like I said, the execution was super tricky. It took tons of read throughs. I wanted you to look back and feel like everything was so obvious after the fact but kind of confusing before you knew for sure.
- My Torin….What a sweet read. How much research did you do while writing this book? I did a lot of research. With this one, it was less reading about disorders and more watching videos with people who had the disorder. I wanted to capture their actions, words, mannerisms in a way that can’t be done simply by reading articles.
- What made you give Torin the Happily Ever After and not Casey? Casey is Torin’s happily ever after and I’d like to think he’s hers.
- You have a lot of little taboo books now. What made you want to write these taboo treats? I enjoy reading taboo. I love having a break between intense reads and writes. These are fun and sexy. They hit the spot and I love them!
- The Wild….this book had a lot of controversy. Did the comments that came from that book change the way to write your taboo books or did you just shake them off? Nah, I do what I want. I have books that will continue to cause controversy and they’re on the way! I’m not one to stay inside a box. I like to push limits and make the reader squirm. I think that’s how we grow as humans.
- The Day She Cried….This one broke my heart. What was your inspiration behind this book? This book actually was inspired after all the drama that came after The Wild. I went through a lot of stress and anxiety mainly over how people thought they had the right to talk to me. For a while there, I let it get to me. Then, I toughened up and wrote a book to help others like me deal with similar situations. I knew if I was dealing with severe anxiety to the point I was dropping weight like crazy and I consider myself a fairly strong person, that it would totally destroy other people who may not have the awesome support system like I do. I just wanted to bring awareness and show people that hateful words do hurt. Hateful words do have consequences.
- Where did you get the idea for the Four Fathers Series? I just thought it would be super fun to have four different stories in four different genres so that readers from all different spectrums could dabble in other genres they may not have read before. By making it a series, they would be more likely to try them out. It was a blast to write. Once I came up with the concept, I reached out to people who I trusted and I knew could really help me execute this.
- Pearson is a hero you hate. Why did you write him like that? Because I knew his entire story that carries over into Wheeler. He spends his entire book antagonizing his neighbor and it just works for the overall story.
- What can we expect in the Son’s Series? More drama…more craziness…more hotness…and we need to see the gang again of course!
Random Ending Questions:
- Is it hard to write duel POV? I love writing dual POV. To me it’s easier than single.
- Who are your one-click authors? Giana Darling is a new fave. I love Lylah James, Marni Mann, Ruby Dixon, and tons more. I’m always checking out new authors because I love exploring for hidden gems!
- Do you write full-time or part-time? Full time.
- Do you feel authors should put trigger warnings in their books? Well, I did put a huge warning on a book that I knew most people wouldn’t be able to handle. People ignored it and still got mad. So now, my warnings are few and far between because they don’t seem to do anything anyway in my opinion.
- If you had to write yourself as a villain I one of your books, what type of villain would you be? I’d be a closet serial killer. Soccer mom type by day, Dexter by night.
- What would you like to say to your readers? I love you guys and can’t thank you enough for always being so supportive. You all follow me on these unusual journeys I take with my writing but you’re in it to have fun, just like I am, and that’s what we do. Sometimes it’s weird but it’s always entertaining!
