Featured Interview With Joyce Kostakis
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I was raised in Germany and moved back to the states in 1982. I live in Portland, Oregon, after more than two decades in Austin, Texas. I live with my husband Michael and two dogs Max and Copper. I adjusted to the rainy weather by writing a novel that combines my love of detective mysteries and the idea that parallel worlds interact with ours.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have a book in my hand. I use to read under the covers with a flashlight. I just couldn’t stop reading.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I really enjoy Jodi Picoult. I love a good mystery but also enjoy reading about opportunities for growth and spiritual development.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
I wrote a paranormal detective novel. The main character is a Homicide Detective that has a failed suicide attempt. She was revived by the paramedics after being dead for a few minutes. She temporarily crossed over to the spirit would and as she returns to her body, she collides with a parallel universe. The door to the spirit world remains open after her return and she is able to communicate with spirits that have passed. As she learns to navigate the waters of being a medium, she finds that she is also able to see through dimensions and can connect with the parallel world she collided with. She receives help on her current cold case from her parallel world counterpart who she calls P-Kate for parallel Kate.
