Kyra: After a dragon attacks their village, two siblings must strike out across the frozen countryside to find safety. But what they find is much more than they bargained for.
Tiffany:Why did you write this particular story?
Tiffany: I often model characters or situations after true events.Are there any characters in your books that are modeled from people in your daily life?
Tiffany: Tell me Kyra, how do you come up with your story lines?
Kyra: When my first novel, Flight Of Dragons, was accepted for publication. I was so excited, I laughed, I cried, I jumped around. There's no feeling like having your dream come true. It was a powerful moment.
Tiffany: Writing is such a personal experience and advice is sometimes lacking for a young writer.What advice would you give to aspiring writers?
Tiffany: What do you enjoy the most about the writing process?
Kyra:I love everything about writing. Well, okay, almost everything. Editing can get a little tedious. But for the most it's an awesome job. What could be more fun than getting to spend all day talking to your imaginary friends and getting paid for it?
Kyra: Do your research. If you're going to submit to a traditional publisher, make sure you talk to other writers who've worked with them. Also, always have somebody else read your book whether you're submitting it to a publisher or self-publishing. Every book needs a fresh set of eyes.
Tiffany: Like I said before, the publishing world can be very confusing, and there are so many new ways to be published now.How did you go about getting your book published?
Tiffany: Ok, enough with the "work" questions! Let's get creative and personal!If you were given one day to live, what would you do that day?
Tiffany:If you could meet one of your favorite authors, who would it be and why?
Tiffany: So many authors have muses or people that inspire them.Who inspires you?
Kyra: Don't spend so much time stressing out about whether or not you'll ever be a 'real writer'. If you write you're a writer, period. Someday you'll get exactly where you want to go. Try to enjoy the journey a little more instead of obsessing about the destination.
Tiffany: Writer's always have lots of irons in the fire. Can you tell us, what’s next for you?
Kyra:Lots of writing. I'm working on five projects right now, so I'm very busy. I have several books coming out this year, some traditionally published and some self published. I've recently gotten a small bookstore to take some of my paperbacks and that's really cool. It's amazing to see your books on the shelf of an actual bookstore. And I'm hoping to get a table at my very first convention this year. I have my fingers crossed on that one. It's going to be a good year.
Best of Luck Kyra! Thank you for letting your imaginative process be showcased today.
