FW: Welcome to FilingWords. Please, tell us a little about yourself.
KB: I began writing The Changing Faces of Destiny when I was in 11th at Governor Mifflin High School. I am an art therapy major at Carlow University. I am 21 years old, and am excited for what the future holds.
FW: Where did you get the idea for The Changing Faces of Destiny?
KB: High school was rough for me. Writing was an outlet; it took me into another world. None of the events in this book actually happened to me, but it is on a very intense subject. It all started with a painting I did in my art class. It was of a woman standing at the edge of a cliff, wanting to jump, and being saved by a close friend. In this painting, the sky is dark and a black cloud engulfs the woman. This cloud is her depression not letting her go, but the man is there to try and save her. This painting is the beginning scene of The Changing Faces of Destiny.
FW: What made you want to become a writer?
KB: Throughout my childhood I was always writing little stories about dogs and cats becoming friends and such. I guess I’ve always just had it in me. I didn’t take it seriously until high school though.
FW: Do you have any unusual writing processes?
KB: Not really unusual. I have to be listening to music and in a room with the door shut.
FW: What inspires you to write?
KB: Life experiences, my mood, etc. Sometimes I’ll have a bad day and I’ll just go home and write, whether it is the sequel or just in my journal.
FW: Who is your favourite author, and why?
KB: My favourite author is Richelle Mead, the author of the Vampire Academy series. She has a way of keeping my attention and pulling out so many emotions. I’ve caught myself crying quite a few times while reading her work. She is extremely talented.
FW: Where do you see yourself going as a writer?
KB: I hope to become a well known author someday. I will continue to write no matter what though.
FW: What’s next for you?
KB: I am currently working on a sequel to The Changing Faces of Destiny. It is called The Changing Faces of Destiny: Reborn and it will be released on September 24, 2014.
FW: Thanks for coming in.
