Chariss K. Walker, M.Msc., an award-winning author, writes fiction and nonfiction books with a metaphysical message. Whether writing crime/thriller or personal growth books, Chariss holds nothing back and shares life experiences with her readers. We have conducted an interview with her.
What other books do you write other than the crime and thriller genre?
I write fiction books based on some truth. For example, I used past my own past experiences and those of friends to craft The Retreat and The Journey. Both books speak about change and transformation. I also write nonfiction inspirational books. Many teach topics of personal growth of the reader. For example, Chakra Basics is an instruction book on the seven major chakras and meditation.
How did you craft the characters?
Some real-life traits from a real-life person are developed in each character. You’ve heard the saying, “Be careful, I’m a writer. Anything you say or do could end up in my book.” It’s true for all writers.
What inspires you in their abilities and gifts?
As I mentioned in my bio, I write books with a metaphysical message. I studied metaphysics and religion for over 30 years hoping to understand the similarities and differences of the two concepts. During that time, I received an Honorary Doctorate in Divinity and a Masters in Metaphysics. To name a few, visions, miracles, dreams, and spiritual gifts are theories taught in both religion and metaphysics. Evidence of these abilities is relevant today. Because it is, I write nonfiction books about them. Many of my fiction characters possess paranormal gifts. For example, The Vision Chronicles series was inspired by my own dream. The basis of that dream became Kaleidoscope (The Vision Chronicles, Book 1). The character sees visions of the future through a kaleidoscope. It evolved from there as his ability evolved into Spyglass, Book 2, Window’s Pane, Book 3, Windows All Around, Book 4, Open Spaces, Book 5, Stream of Light, Book 6, Lamp’s Light, Book 7, and Clear Glass, Book 8.
What is ''Purple Kitty'' about?
Purple Kitty is the story of Serena McKay, a private eye, and the cases she solves. As a young girl, her stepfather sexually abused her. The experience influences her life. She’s flawed, but she’s very good at her job. Sometimes, the work is her only salvation.
Why do you think it deserves a Kindle Press deal?
Purple Kitty deserves a Kindle Press deal because it’s well written and the story is crisp. It holds the attention of anyone who likes Noir crime fiction. The purpose of Kindle Press is to reward little known Indie authors. I’ve written a blog to share my experiences with the Kindle Scout campaign with other authors: http://bit.ly/1SjAKMN
