Interview with Kate Golden, Author of A Dawn of Onyx

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write A Dawn of Onyx?

I have always loved storytelling, I have developed films and television series for work over the last seven years and was always drawn to love stories and fantastical world building. I read A Court of Thorns and Roses, then Outlander, then the Plated Prisoner series all within the summer of 2021, and then I could not, for the life of me, find a book to scratch that itch. So my fiance encouraged me to try writing what it was I wanted to read so desperately!

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

I love any kind of romance, though I personally need some kind of plot to keep me hooked. Of course, fantasy with a good love story is my favorite, but I also like a juicy murder mystery!

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

I have never read the Throne of Glass series. I keep telling myself I’ll read it when I get a break from work and writing and neither of those things are happening anytime soon so I think I just need to bite the bullet!

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

Impossible to chose only one, but Arwen and Kane meeting for the first time in the dungeon felt like it just fell right out of my head!

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

I can only write to my favorite movie, tv show, and video game soundtracks!

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

“Take it easy, it’s just life.” I’m kidding. (But not really) I’m a little type A and can put a lot of pressure on myself. So, as often as I can, I try to remember to take each day as it comes and enjoy the ride.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

That being afraid, or struggling through something does not make you weak. It takes even more strength to do the thing that scares you or makes you uncomfortable! Also, consent and respect is just as sexy as possessive, dark, villainous behavior! We can have both!
