Author Interview: Kim Harrington

Dropping in today is Clarity author Kim Harrington to talk a little about her upcoming debut (which is fantastic and a must read). From a supernatural twist to plenty of boycandy, Kim definitely throws the range at you.

Describe Clarity in seven words.

Psychic family, murder mystery, tourists, hot guys.

If you found yourself in Clare's position with the psychic ability, would you use your power to help the police, even if you knew it could be dangerous and you might not like what you find?

I’m a huge wimp, so I probably wouldn’t involve myself unless—like Clare—I had a personal stake in it.

There is a large cast of characters in this book, yet they are all very realistic and well fleshed out. Did you find it difficult to handle such a large cast, and which character besides Clare was your favorite to do?

It wasn’t too difficult to handle the characters. I know them pretty well. I have detailed character sketches and know what motivates each of them. And I know things that aren’t in book one. ;) Besides Clare, I think my favorite character to write is maybe her brother Perry. He’s part douchey-man-whore and part loyal family member. He’s interesting.

If you could pair Clare, Justin and Gabriel with any character from any book, who would you pick for each?

Ahhh! I can’t answer this because I don’t want to break up any of the couples from other books. I feel guilty. :)

If Clare could go back in time and witness one historical event/time, what would she pick?

She would probably want to go back to the Salem Witch Trials, kick some ass, and save all the women.

If you were a demigod, which god/goddess would be your parent?

What a fun question! I would say Neptune/Poseidon because I love being in the water so much.

What kind of cake/confection would you describe yourself as?

I’ll go with a candy and say Sour Patch Kids. They’re sweet, sour, shocking and sometimes feel like a punch to the face.

Thank you, Kim, for answering my questions. And I have to admit, you're the first person to decline the couples pairing question because of other couples and not your own.

Clarity hits shelves March 1, so make sure you guys check it out! You don't want to miss it.


  1. I read an ARC of this book and had to *unfortunately* send it on...Can't wait to by my very own copy! Loved it!

  2. Great interview- I can't wait to read CLARITY :)

  3. I'm so excited for Clarity and this is a great interview! Perry, the douchey-man-whore, but loyal family member does indeed sound interesting and I kinda love how Kim refuses to break up other book couples :D
