Featured Interview With Kathy and Karen Sills
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
Kathy and Karen are identical twin sisters. They were born in Holland Michigan, but raised in Mississippi as good old Southern gals. They live with their Mother and their pet Molly. They have an older brother who lives in North Carolina. Kathy and Karen are very close and do everything together.
The twins have always enjoyed putting their imagination into writing. They wrote for the school paper, and basically just for fun. Once out of school they did go to college. They both majored in Child Development, but writing was never far from their mind. After college they worked with kids, and found out that it only fueled their imagination. They had the perfect audience to share their stories with.
Kathy and Karen loves to cook and create their own recipes too. One of their dreams is to own their own bakery or food truck. People think they are crazy because they love to grocery shop. They say the grocery store is like a candy or toy store to them. Their favorite movie is Julie and Julia because it is about writing and cooking, their two most passions.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
We started reading the moment we learned how. We started writing stories once we learned how to put words and sentences together. Our imagination were always vivid. We loved to write short stories, and even plays. Reading and writing was something the twins considered part of them. They knew it would lead them to become authors one day.
