I’m interviewing Kristyn Stone today, author of YA fantasy “The Resistance: Leprechaun”. Welcome to my blog!
How long have you been writing?
I have been writing creatively since my freshman year of high school. That was about thirteen years ago. Didn’t seem that long until I had to count how long ago that was!
WHAT WAS THE MOST CHALLENGING PART ABOUT WRITING THE RESISTANCE: LEPRECHAUN?
I think the most challenging part is two things:
1) my book was based off weird dreams of my son, so when I woke I would write and just continue with the story; the challenge was readers weren’t in my dreams, they couldn’t see what I saw so I needed to make sure the story was understandable and not in a jumbled mess.
2) Editing, I couldn’t afford a professional edit so I got my family and friends to go through with a red pen ( or purple as a friend thought red was an angry color).
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT BEING AN AUTHOR?
My favorite part about being an author, is that its my way, sounds selfish but you are constantly told this isn’t real and this can’t be possible; when I write, it’s real to me and all things are possible.
HOW MANY BOOKS WILL THERE BE IN THE SERIES?
Right now I’m working on book three and maybe it will end with them and maybe it will continue with a new set of characters. I haven’t thought on how far I want it to go but little by little you learn more about the characters and their past that make it to where Garritt & his twin Baylee are today.
DO YOU HAVE WORKS IN PROGRESS?
Yes, I have book three with a rough title of Grimm Summit; and I have one about a young fairy that I have been working on for a while as well.
