Here is Krystal Fernandes She is a children's author and I had the privilege of interviewing Her On my blog.
Q1.when did you decide you were going to write a book?
A. Honestly, I have been writing stories since I was about 11-years-old. It was only until about a few years ago that I decided, “You know what? I want to share them with the world.” And I did just that!
Q2. How did you come up with the name of your books?
A. I came up with the themes first and then just started writing. After the story started coming together, that’s usually when I get the idea of what my title should be. If I really get stumped, I’ll ask my husband for his input too. He’s been quite helpful.
Q3. What are you working on now for 2018?
A. Excitingly enough, my first book “Jasper the Bold(ish)” is set to come out this Summer! I have a couple other titles and books up my sleeve though. One is almost complete, so maybe you’ll see in by 2019.
Q4.How long have you been writing?
A. I have been writing for enjoyment since around 11-years-old. That makes it around 20 years. Whoa! I have only recently realized that I should share my writing with the world and how possible it really is if you set out to reach that goal.
Q5. What advice would you give other authors?
A. That is simple. To never, ever give up. Never let anyone tell you that you cannot do it, it’s too difficult, or that you’re dreaming too big. There is never a dream too big- only small minds that cannot recognize its greatness. Yes, it is a trying, long journey, but the feeling at the end makes it completely worth it.
Q6.Where can people find you online?
A. Follow me on my Facebook page,
Q7. Do you plan on making more books in the future?
Q8. How many books have you written?
A. Written? About five. Published? Just this first one. I’m aiming to have the other books out there as well, but you have to start somewhere first!
Q9.Did you go to college to be a writer?
A. Oddly enough, I did not. Of course, I took some writing courses, but I went to college for Early Childhood Education. My passion has always been writing and working with children. I am blessed enough to have the ability to do both and it truly makes my heart happy.
