What is your latest release and what genre is it? Forbidden Alliance is YA speculative fiction. It’s the second book in the Blueprint Trilogy, and since your readers may not have heard of the trilogy, I’ll introduce the first novel, Future Perfect.
Quick description: The Blueprint Trilogy tells of a dystopian future in which UK citizens live comfortable lives in Citidomes where looks are everything, the standard of beauty is tall, thin and androgynous, but personal relationships are forbidden. When a young man and woman become attracted to each other and question their society, they discover a new life outside the Citidomes but struggle to escape their past.
Katrina dreamed of being a novelist from childhood but didn’t start writing until she was forty, when the death of a close friend made her realise that she couldn’t put off her dreams forever. Katrina lives in Saffron Walden, England, where she works from home as a freelance medical writer. She spends her free time walking her two black Labradors, listening to music and travelling as often as possible.
What are you working on now?
I’ve always been fascinated by the importance of nurture versus nature and am currently working on the story of a native American girl with miracle healing powers, raised by strangers who knew nothing of her abilities.
Katrina’s reading recommendation:
The best book I’ve read this year is House of York by Terry Tyler, a contemporary family drama with parallels to events in the era of the Wars of the Roses. I’ve read several of this author’s other novels and would recommend them all.
