Kerry Anne King talks Improbably Yours on the Desideratum Podcast

Desideratum is one of my favorite podcasts for several reasons! First off, host Theresa Bakken is such a thoughtful and insightful reader and interviewer — during our conversation she made me understand things about Improbably Yours that hadn’t been clear to me before even though I’m the one who wrote the book!

Kerry Anne King answered A.K. White's question: Kerry Anne King
Hey, I'm so glad you loved the magic and the concept! Other People's Things was such a fun book to write. I think the trick to adding those touches of magic is rooted in the same ground rules as writing full on fantasy (which I adore, by the way!) It See Full Answer

“I keep waiting for some great life purpose to rise up in front of me and declare itself, but I don’t seem to be wired for greatness.”
Kerry Anne King, Whisper Me This

“A familiar web of worry and indecision grounds me in my accustomed reality.”
Kerry Anne King, Whisper Me This

“Whisper me this, my darling, my love The song of the moonlight, of stars up above. Whisper me truth, love, and whisper me lies, Warm days of winter, cold summer skies. Whisper me anger, whisper me rain, Whisper me flowers, then whisper me pain. When I come to die, love, then whisper me this The shape of a memory, the truth of a kiss. Whisper me, whisper me, whisper”
Kerry Anne King, Whisper Me This
