Now, here is a little bit more about the beautiful author Christina Kaye:
Christina Kaye was raised in suburban Central Kentucky in a family full of right-brainers. With a photographer/artist for a grandfather and an author/illustrator for a mother, she was bound to turn out on the creative side of the spectrum. She honed her writing skills in school, winning awards for her essays and short stories. Christina tried her hand at about every sport imaginable, which only went to prove that her efforts were better spent in other creative outlets such as art, singing, and writing. But it was writing that really stuck with her and she spent the next several years trying her hand at writing fiction novels, just for the fun of it.
She took a break for a while and focused on putting herself through paralegal school while raising two amazing Irish twin girls. She quickly learned that being a certified paralegal was the best career choice she could have made. On top of all of the cool cases she has worked on over the years, she was able to write original legal documents autonomously. When a national magazine for attorneys approached her in 2013 to write a short story for them about the life of a paralegal, she jumped on the chance. When the article was published and garnered her some amazing feedback, she realized how much she missed writing for leisure. She sat down and wrote her very first full-length fiction novel that year and hasn’t stopped writing since.
She loves reading (all genres except romance, erotica, and sci-fi), folk music, caramel macchiatos, puppies, thunderstorms, antique jewelry, dragonflies, the color purple (not the movie), and enjoys a large sweet tea from McDonald’s every single day.
Christina Kaye lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her two teenage daughters.
Christina Kaye was always destined to be involved in the arts in some way, and this is thanks to her parents who both have a history in the arts too! I genuinely believe that some people are destined to be writers, and Kaye certainly was! When I spoke to Kaye, I asked her three questions, and here they are with her wonderful answers!
