interviewing author Kristy Payne-Hamby

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! 

Q 4. how long have you been writing?

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.About 4. I have a few others in the works or that I'm brainstorming!
