Interview with Kathleen Hale, Author of Nothing Bad is Going to Happen

20 Jan 2016
Tell us a little bit about your new release, Nothing Bad Is Going to Happen.

It’s a sequel to my first book, No One Else Can Have You, which was about a gruesome murder in a weird, tiny town. This one is about the same small town, with bigger murders.

What’s your favorite song lyric?

My favorite lyrics are misheard lyrics. “All These Things That I’ve Done” by The Killers includes the line, “If you can hold on, hold on,” but I think it sounds like, “If you can’t hold on, hold on.” And I like that.

If you could have dinner with anyone, alive or dead, who would you choose and why?

Probably my husband Simon because he’s my favorite person.

What’s rocking your world this month?

My new bunny. Her name is Mimosa and I spend most of the day worrying if she likes me.

If you were a teacher, what book would you assign to your class?

Probably something by Simon because he’s hilarious and it would trick them into reading and I would enjoy talking about it with them.

If you had to pick one place to vacation for the rest of your life, where would you choose?

Somewhere that doesn’t exist: an island full of dogs and rabbits where everyone I love sits on my lap at the same time.

What’s your favorite quote or scene from Nothing Bad Is Going to Happen

Probably when the protagonist is carefully planning out her sex moves for that night on flash cards.

Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?

If you can’t hold on, hold on.
