Q1. when did you decide you were going to write a book?



A. Chicken Lips came to life because of my twin daughters! They inspired me to write his story about a year ago! With the help of my publisher, I felt confident in putting myself out there! 


Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books 

A. CHICKEN LIPS is the name of our real life, oddly named cow! The title was a no-brainer for me. Note to future readers, you must say Chicken Lips in your silliest voice. 

Q. 3 what are you working on now for 20 18?

A. Working on a sequel and I  have had approval on another completely different book called, 'My house is small'. I'm also keeping insanely busy doing free school visits!

A. I had this amazing teacher in the first grade who really helped shape my love of writing! (Not to mention, my mom works in a school media center! Writing and reading is just ingrained in me) 

Q 5. What advice would you give other authors?

A. Stay true to yourself! What works for some, doesn't work for others. Take time to enjoy the moments!
Learn from my mistake and do not book 3 school visits in the same week! So exhausting! 
Stay positive. Help others. 

Q 6.  where can people find you online?

A. @authorkristyhamby on Instagram 
@authorkristyhamby on Facebook

Q2. When did you decide you were going to write a book?
A. It all started with a thought of creating something with the emails shared between my husband and I - I thought at a minimum it would be fun to pass this down to our children. After allowing others to read the emails and telling our story, so many people would say that I should write a book....so I did :)
_Kisses from Sardinia _has all the makings of a novel, but it’s a true story—a story of chance, romance, and happenstance that every woman, young or old, should read and thus be inspired. Laurie’s tale of adventure will awaken youn…

A. I’m a SAHM and wife. I love to watch horror movies especially if it’s based on a Stephen King book. I am a huge fan of two phenomenal female authors, Kimberla Lawson Roby & Victoria Christopher Murry. They both write African American fiction. Their novels are so inspirational.
Q2. Where did the inspiration to write come from? 
A. Wow, I remember falling in love with writing in school. Being given an assignment that allowed me to create my own story was an incredible feeling. I would spend a lot of times in my room as a kid writing fun comic strips. But the day I made the profound decision to write a book. Was when I was in middle school and a classmate had a notebook with her own fiction story. I read it and thought to myself. Hmmm, I would write one better.

Q3. How did you come up with the name of your books?
