Interview with K. Sinko, Author of Safe Harbor

21 Jun 2023

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Safe Harbor?

While there’s a big focus on the love story, Melanie is also grappling with her brother being an addict. It’s actually a similar story to my own, and the process she works with (and finally opening up to others) is one that I personally have gone through over the years.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Safe Harbor, what would they be?

Safe and Sound by Taylor Swift — definitely a theme song for Melanie & Calvin combined.

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

I do love contemporary fiction and romance…but I’m also a *big* sucker for fantasy.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

The entire Throne of Glass series…it’s queued up on my Kindle ready for some summer reading!

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

When all of the Scoopers hang on the beach after Haverfest and slice into that disgusting ice cream cake…and everyone get’s a little surprise. 😉

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

Even though I need complete silence when I write, I *do* need a clicky keyboard. It somehow makes me feel powerful??

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

Write what feels right, and don’t overthink it.

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

That whatever hardships you face, know that you never have to go through them alone. There’s a lot of beauty on the other side when you open up your heart to the people you love.
