Interview with Kaye Hopkins, Author of The Great Caterpillar Apocalypse

27 Sep 2023

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write The Great Caterpillar Apocalypse?

An actual caterpillar apocalypse! Last year due to more than usual rain, my neighborhood was inundated with yellow and green caterpillars. It was the craziest thing I ever saw and I thought it would be fun to incorporate it into a story.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

I love romantic comedies, but I also love a good mystery and an occasional Stephen King horror.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

I just picked up the latest Catherine Stedman mystery and I have two books by Jennifer Weiner.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

I actually loved writing the entire book. I think my favorite, though, was when Megan thought someone was breaking into her house.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

I don’t have any writing habits that I am aware of.

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

Live and let live!

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

That love is always the best medicine.
