Let’s get you introduced to everyone, shall we?!
Hi! I’m Kristy Brown from the U.K. I write mainly YA, but I like a romance element in everything I write and read. My titles are KIERA’S QUEST. (Middle grade fantasy series.) JUST SAM. (YA Contemporary Romance.) CINDERFELLA. (YA/New Adult fairy tale retelling.) SUMMER’S END & SUMMER’S LOST. (YA Paranormal Romance series.)
What prompted you to pursue a career as a writer?
I wrote poetry as a teenager, but found a passion for acting and studied that at University. Then when when my first child was born I began writing a short story while he slept. One chapter lead to another and that became my first book in a middle grade fantasy series, KIERA’S QUEST.
Do you have any special writing habits?
I like total silence and lots of black coffee!
When you write a new book, do you already have the whole story in mind or do you elaborate it along the way?
Weirdly, I nearly always see the end first and try and write towards it. I roughly plot and flesh it out as I go.
In your opinion what is the best book you have written? What’s your favourite book ever?
My favourite book would be my YA Contemporary Romance, JUST SAM. I feel like it has lots of me in it. The love of tennis, Disney and musicals amongst other things are all very me. My favourite book ever? That’s too hard!! I love Hush Hush, The Selection series, Maze Runner, The Lux series, and recently fell in love with Where the Crawdads Sing. I try to read as much as possible.
How do you feel after writing a book?
I sometimes cry after writing the last line! I can spend so long writing a book that the characters become part of me, I think this is how most authors must feel.
Tell us about your latest book and please put the link so our readers can find it.
My latest books are a YA Paranormal Romance series. Book one, SUMMER’S END & book two, SUMMER’S LOST are available through Muse It Up Publishing and Amazon etc. ‘She wakes up badly burned with no memory. He has to kill her because of what she is…’ It’s been likened to Twilight, although there are no vamps in it 🙂 Book three, the final book is currently in editing.
Do you have a new release? When? We want details.
Summer’s Time should be available at the end of the year, and my current wip is a modern retelling of Romeo and Juliet.
