Author Interview: Kathryn Barnett author of Three Sisters


Welcome Readers to the Book's Delight. We are happy to have another installment in our author interview series. Today we are chatting with Kathryn Barnett, author of Three Sisters.

JMR-Welcome to the Books Delight, Kathryn. Tell our readers where you live, what you do for fun and what does the perfect day look like?

KB- I live in Hampshire, England. I enjoy going for coffee and cake at my local coffee shop. A perfect day to me is writing with a coffee at hand, going for a walk in nature (at my local lakes) and meeting up with friends is a bonus. 

JMR-What’s your favorite historical time period? Why? 

KB- I like the Edwardian and First World War period because so many new inventions were coming out and for women they were able to undertake work and travel that a few years previous was unthinkable. 

JMR-Who is your favorite historical figure? Why? If you could ask them one question, what would it be?

KB- Queen Elizabeth the First. She was such a strong woman ruling England at a time when women had few rights. She led the way for future queens. I would ask her from where did she gather her inner strength. 

JMR- You are a trained homeopathic practitioner. How did you come to be a writer of historical fiction, and what influence does your profession have on your writing, if any?

KB-I started with my debut novel, Trust Me On This One, Emily writing about the Thalidomide scandal of the 1950s and 1960s incorporating homeopathy into the story led me to follow suit with my subsequent novels. 

JMR- Did you visit anyone of the places in your book? Where did you feel closest to your characters?

KB- I am very familiar with Lymington the setting of my novel; Three Sisters. I felt closest to my characters around the quayside there and the sea generally inspires my writing. 

JMR- Katheryn, tell us about your new book, Three Sisters

KB- It is a coming-of-age story of three girls becoming women in Edwardian England just as the Great War looms. Each girl very different in personality faces an a life-changing challenge, an impending marriage, her feelings for her best friend, and chronic illness. The war forces them to face these challenges head on and also make a decision about their future. 

JMR-What projects do you have in the pipeline?

KB- I have a 1950s multicultural romance coming out next year, also book two in my Three Sisters serial. 

JMR- Tell our readers how to find you on social media and the web. 

KB- Instagram




JMR- What question were you hoping I’d ask but didn’t?

KB-What inspires your writing? Wanting to understand more about humankind. What does it mean to be human in a certain period of time, if our lives took a certain path.
