The Interpreter: With Christine




Shah Sight
Christine Sutton, Welcome to our group, and thanks for taking part in this interview. You have named your short stories 'Red', and your novella sequel 'Snow', right, let me express myself that I am impressed by the titles, tell us, apart from these titles, what else there is in your books that would make them stand out among other books, is it the stories, is it what people have said about them, is it the covers, or is it you as a person who have written them? Are you having lots of interviews about your books, apart from this one, tell us what else do you do to promote your stories?




Christine Sutton I gave the two stories one word titles because I think it best expresses the essence of the stories. These two stories are very different retellings of two classic fairy tales. There is one main character that is present through both stories, Kayla Burkheart. The stories follow her through a journey of discovery. She finds secrets that have been long buried in her past, and she also finds that the people she should be able to trust are not trustworthy at all. One theme that flows through both stories is that family is not necessarily blood related, and those that are blood, are not always family. I believe that my characters are strong and well developed. There is also a third installment in the works. It will be titled 'Let me come in'



Christine Sutton I try to bring a lot of myself into my works, but what you read is my take on how people behave. I think one thing that I have is empathy for people, no matter how unsympathetic they might be. I treat every one of my characters as an individual. I believe that even if they are bad people, they still deserve the respect of having their story told.



Christine Sutton I get a lot of compliments on my covers. :) I work hard on getting them exactly the way I want them. To me, they are the first thing that a person sees, so they are in essence my first impression. I ask for a lot of feedback from other people that I respect before I add a cover image to my work.



Christine Sutton I actually do not do a lot of interviews. I am more than open to doing them, though. *wink* Anyone that would like to interview me is more than welcome to contact me.

Christine Sutton All of my titles have 4 and 5 star reviews on Amazon, and my feedback has been very positive. I am a firm believer that you can't please all the people all the time, but I do my best to make most of them happy. :)
