Featured Interview With Carryn W Kerr
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
Raised in a small town in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa, I am a young adult fiction author who absolutely loves anything about the English language. Currently, I am in Johannesburg and have two Dobermans, Achilles and Yvon, who happen to feature in my debut. I also enjoy riding my gelding, Mr. Fantastic, who I believe doubles as my muse.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I’ve loved reading since a child, but the book that really caught my attention was The Lord of the Rings when I was about thirteen. I only began writing much later in life.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I mostly love young adult reads, where I can get taken to another place, like Brigid Kemmerer, Stephanie Garber, JK Rowling. My writing was mostly inspired by Stephenie Meyer’s The Host.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
The Renascent World originally took shape in my dreams and I built on it from there. I loved writing the story and seeing it unfold as I followed Cassidy on her journey.
It is my debut and is about a young girl, Cassidy Jones. Shortly before a meteorite strike killed almost everyone on Earth, Cassidy’s family was among the ‘chosen’ who were whisked away. They spent the following thirteen years in Petriville, a Victorian-style town that hovered at the center of a sphere while moving through Earth’s orbit.
Now, Cassidy is sixteen, and Petriville is due to return to Earth when the hologram of Eric visits her.
He survived the meteorite strike in an Earth-based refuge, but Petriville’s founder holds no place for these people.
She wants them killed and the stricken planet repopulated by only her chosen people!
