Kate Dyer-Seeley writes the Pacific Northwest Mystery Series for Kensington Publishing, featuring the rugged landscapes of the PNW and a young journalist who bills herself as an intrepid adventurer in order to land a gig writing for Northwest Extreme.

With Meg, she’s twenty-three but is really into vintage fashion and loves the 1950s, so I listen to a lot of Frank Sinatra and other big band music when I’m writing. But then, she’s twenty-three so I also listen to Taylor Swift and Portland bands, like The Decemberists since the book is set here.

I usually transform the white board and one wall in my office to inspire me while I write. For example, since Scene of the Climb is set in the Columbia River Gorge so I put up photos and posters of local hikes and climbs. Meg’s a fan of the color pink and vintage fashion, so I had lots of retro pictures up. She loves beer and coffee, so I clipped magazines to make a visual collage of some of what she’d be eating and drinking.

I find that my best ideas and breakthroughs tend to happen when I'm walking, hiking, or swimming versus staring at a blank screen. There's something about physically moving that seems to help move the creative process too. (less)

Kate likes the books far better than the movies that are made from them.
