An Excerpt of STILETTO JUSTICE by Camryn King
About Camryn King
Intimate Conversation with Camryn King
Camryn King has experienced her share of fear, insecurity, confusion and self-doubt, but she learned early on that there wasn’t any form of teenaged angst a good book couldn’t cure. Now, after years of dreaming about it, she’s put pen to a lifelong passion and poured the characters who have long lived inside her head into the pages of a novel. Her other passions include travel, playing detective and living vicariously through others’ lives via the internet and people-watching in Las Vegas, where she lives. Now that she’s rolled the dice and written a novel, she’ll go for double or nothing by opening the door to her life at CamrynKing.com and inviting your comments and feedback at CamrynKingBooks@gmail.com.
Describe yourself in three words. Supporting women empowerment.
I wanted to delve into a genre that spoke to today’s breaking news stories, the headlines of our lives.Stiletto Justice deals with some very real issues that America is facing right now – political corruption (a big one!), mass incarceration, a broken judicial system and greed.
Honestly, I’m more focused on the writing, using my work of fiction to make a difference in real life. My website, CamrynKing.com is where I put most marketing energy. I believe that those who want to read about strong, empowered women who don’t back down, and good winning over evil, will be drawn to my books.
That I became emotionally invested in the story line as though the characters were real.
My work crosses the genres of contemporary fiction, women’s fiction and suspense. Those are enough for me.
Stiletto Justice, my debut novel, is published through Kensington Books and available in print, eBook and audio, wherever books are sold.
The three main characters Kim, Jayda and Harley each represent a different culture. Kim is Black. Harley is White. Jayda is Mexican. Their respective cultures and experiences shape not only their personalities but their points of view, something I think is true for all of us. What becomes clear as readers get to know them is that strength can be shown in different ways, depending on one’s personality. But when one is determined, they can be unstoppable.
I’ve had people close to me, family members, abused by the judicial system. I could absolutely relate to the frustration, helplessness and sometimes even hopelessness that these ladies felt.
No, these women have happily gone on with their lives. 😉
I’d never write about a subject for which I’m not personally vested, don’t believe in or have no interest in. I would never write a book that goes against my own personal viewpoints and beliefs.
I’ve been fortunate not to have dealt with being rejected as an author. Writing is work and as with any job, there are days when you love it and days when…not so much. Sometimes the words aren’t there or the creative juices aren’t flowing. You just have to keep going until the magic returns. It always does.
My second novel, Triple Threat, releases in October, 2018 and another book, Snapshot is in the works.
A novel called Snapshot, about a photographer who unknowingly snaps a picture that could bring down the most powerful man in our country…the President.
