Have you been writing for a long time?
I have been doing random writing since I was in high school but professionally I have been writing for seven years.
What inspired you to start a writing career?
I kept having crazy dreams that my son was a leprechaun. I shared my dreams with my best friend Chris, he told me keep writing and publish it.
Is this book a stand-alone or part of a series?
This book is part of a series, I want to make three books, sadly I’m stuck on a writers block for book three and I hate that! But never fear it never lasts long.
Why did you choose this genre?
I love young adult fantasy, when you read these types of books you can close your eyes and you are in a magical place where anything can happen. Trees could be alive or leprechauns walk among us, you never know what can happen and it is never a boring adventure.
Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?
If you are passionate about your story others will be too. Just because someone said ‘no’ to you doesn’t mean someone else is in love with your book. You keep positive, keep writing and keep passing it around. More and more will love it.
About the Book
Title: The Resistance: Duchess
Author: Kristyn Stone
Genre: YA Fantasy
In this second book of The Resistance series Garritt’s twin Baylee takes center stage. Baylee has a hard time being a leprechaun, but when she is captured, she must figure out if she wants to be a normal teenager, an elf for her people or a ruler of leprechauns and elves.
Damon is in love, and even though what he did was wrong, he did it for all the right reasons. When Baylee disappears in front of his eyes he must go the wrong way to get her back.
I am a mother of two wonderful little leprechauns. I am a twenty-seven year old bookworm. I’m a day dreaming, writing stories, photography taking, little nerd, and PROUD. I have been writing for a few years now and hoping to influence the next generations with imagination and hopefully turn them into fans!
I live in Colorado now, where the views are amazing, there is nothing like this view! I have lived in Florida growing up (which is where the beginning of Garritt’s story starts) I have lived in Alabama but nothing compares to Colorado. I do miss the weather in Florida, I’m not a big fan of the white stuff (snow) in the winter.
