Interview with Kev Chilton, Author of Teens’ Guide to Financial Independence (Teens’ Guide Series)

10 Jul 2024

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Teens’ Guide to Financial Independence (Teens’ Guide Series)?

This is one of a series comprised of five books specifically designed to provide guidance and support for teenagers as they navigate the various modern day challenges that are likely to arise during their journey towards adulthood.

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

Since I tackle real-life issues faced by young adults, I like to balance it out with pure escapism. I’m currently immersed in Richard Osman’s hilarious and brilliant novel, The Thursday Club. Once I got started, I figured I’d read all of his books before moving on to anything else..

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

Anything by Richard Osman.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

I was awful at interviews and ended up losing out on getting the jobs I really wanted. I once received a golden piece of advice that completely transformed my life overnight. I enjoyed writing about that, hoping this simple ‘trick’ will help many get the jobs they truly desire.

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

‘Forward with Clean Hands’. Meaning I shall only ever write what I believe to be honest and true.

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

The special information to guarantee success at job interviews, contained in Chapter 3, Interview Techniques.
