Featured Interview With Kristen Pham
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I was raised in Florida, not far from the beach, where I spent many happy days imagining fantastical worlds beneath the waves. These days I live closer to a much chillier, but equally beautiful beach in San Diego, California.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I’ve been a writer since childhood, penning short stories for classmates and family to read. I was a journalism major in college, and while I loved writing and researching articles, my passion has always been writing fiction. A few years ago I decided to self publish some of my stories, and was thrilled to discover that there was an audience for my writing.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I’m a lover of good fantasy and science fiction novels, especially those with excellent world building and and diverse cast of characters. Throw in a complex female heroine, and I’m hooked. I’m a huge fan of Terry Goodkind’s Sword of Truth fantasy series. I also love Harry Potter, A Wrinkle in Time, and The Giver Quartet.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
Joan the Made is the first book in a planned trilogy. It’s aimed at lovers of young adult and new adult science fiction. Below is a description of the novel, which is available on Amazon.
On Joan Fasces’ eighteenth birthday, she discovers that she is cloned from the famous Joan of Arc. But being cloned in America comes at a steep price. Segregated and oppressed, clones are forced to act as docile servants to the rest of the Evolved population.
Joan can either run from her fate and spend the rest of her life in hiding, or she can join a Throwback rebellion populated by clones of the greatest leaders in history.
