Featured Interview With Kristy Mickelsen
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I am a 43-year-old wife and mother, whose passions include my two autistic young adult children, reading and writing. I was born in Upland California, and raised in Riverside California by my two wonderful parents Dale and Reata.
I now live in the beautiful state of Texas with my husband our kids and our two fur babies Rollie and Boxer.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I actually began reading at a young age. I grew up reading sweet valley twins as a young child but discovered my true love was reading romance novels in my early teens.
As an adult I took my love for reading and began trying to write my own stories.
I believe that writing is a creative way to express many human emotions that are sometimes hard to speak. Emotions such as love, lust, hate, anger, joy, and sorrow just to name a few. I love to write both nonfiction from my real-life experiences, as well as fictional romance, and even some erotica.
My books can be found on Amazon.com and B&N.com.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I love Danielle Steel. I can never get enough of her stories. I love other romance authors as well including Jude Deverauxe and Lavryle Spencer.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My latest book A Christmas To Remember was based off of the real emotions my mother felt when my father passed away from Kidney Cancer in 2011. The book is about finding yourself and love again after the loss of a loved one.
The book was very hard for me to write because it is so personal to me. I often found myself crying as I relived some of the memories from my dad’s cancer fight.
