Fun Facts: Behind the Scenes of the Midnight Fire Series by Kaitlyn Davis

Fun Facts: Behind the Scenes of the Midnight Fire Series!

1) When I played pretend as a little girl, I always used the name Daffy (short for Daffodil) and fell in love with a boy named Tristan. With Ignite, I ditched Daffy and used Kira instead (I guess at my mature age of 22, I finally realized main characters shouldn’t be named after fictional ducks!), but I couldn’t part with the name Tristan.

2) The surfing scene in the first book was inspired by a real-life surfing accident of mine! I wiped-out and lost half of my tooth when I crashed into my own board. I understand Kira’s pain :)

3) In high school, my English class always acted out scenes of Shakespeare’s plays to better understand them. The only role I ever got to play was the Ass from A Midsummer Night’s Dream… donkey ears were unfortunately involved. Needless to say, I pursued a little dream fulfillment when writing a certain scene in Ignite

4) In Simmer, Kira has to deal with an overprotective sister who I won’t name. But, she was partially inspired by one of my older sisters! The running joke in my family is that any guy I date will have to ask my dad AND my sister for my hand in marriage before he even tries proposing!

5) When I first self-published Ignite, I didn’t tell anyone! I wanted to see how it would sell without the help of my friends – to see if my work could live on its own merit. But, about six weeks after I published, my aforementioned older sister found out because she Google searched my name. Now they are all watching me like hawks!

Simmer by Kaitlyn Davis
Midnight Fire #2
Published: April 3, 2012

Slowly, like a whisper almost blown away in the wind, two words streaked across her mind: "Kiss me."

Kira may have survived the eclipse, but her troubles are far from over. She's headed to Sonnyville with one goal in mind: to learn more about her parents. But with Luke and Tristan competing for her heart and Diana gunning for her head, time is running out on the search for her mother. And the closer Kira gets to answers, the more terrified she becomes. The conduits fear her, the vampires fear her, and Kira is starting to wonder if maybe they're right...

Ignite by Kaitlyn Davis
Midnight Fire #1
Published: October 2011 

"With one last look, one final search of the lines of his face for some sign, Kira turned and ran away from the sound of the man she loved laughing in the face of her death."

When Kira Dawson moves to South Carolina, she meets Luke, a blond goofball who quickly becomes her best friend, and Tristan, a mysterious bad boy who sends shivers down her spine. Kira knows they're keeping secrets, but when she discovers Tristan's lust for blood and her own dormant mystical powers, Kira is forced to fight for her life and make the heartbreaking decision between the familiar comfort of friendship and the fiery passion of love.
