Interview with K. Dawn Byrd

Posted by on June 20, 2011
I’d like to welcome K. Dawn Byrd to Infinite Characters. She has written a young adult romance titled Mistaken Identity. This is a story of Eden Morgan, a teenager, whose best friend falls in love with the same boy Eden loves.
 
K. Dawn will be giving away one gift card for a free download of Mistaken Identity to someone who leaves a comment at the close of this interview before midnight, Wednesday, June 22, 2011. Please check back on Thursday, June 23, 2011 for the winning post. The winner must email me within 5 days at mildred@infinitecharacters.com and leave your email address to receive the gift card.
K. Dawn, can you tell us how this story came to you?
Sometimes I get the strangest ideas! I wondered what would happen if a not-as-pretty good Christian girl and her gorgeous non-Christian best friend fell in love with the same guy. Who would get the guy?
 
Ah, I see what you mean, and of course, that’s guaranteed conflict.
 
Now, please tell us about your journey to getting this book published.
I had already published several books with Desert Breeze Publishing when they opened a young adult line. I’d been writing romantic suspense and thought it would be fun to try my hand at a young adult novel. It was so much fun that I’m signing a contract for a young adult mystery series that will debut in January.
 
Congratulations! That sounds exciting.
Tell me three things about yourself that would surprise your readers.
I own two hairless Chinese Crested dogs.
I love sour things…pickles, lemons, sour candy.
I used to ride a Harley, but gave it up in order to have more time to write.
(My husband always wanted to stay out way too long and take the scenic route home. He still has his bike, but I don’t miss mine at all.)
 
What are you working on now, and what’s next for you?
I’m editing my October release with Desert Breeze. This time for Keeps is an inspirational romance.

    Thanks so much for your kind comments, Jackie. The book was a lot of fun to write. It does cover some heavy topics at times, but hey, teenage life isn’t easy.

    I think your book sounds great. You are so talented. I hope your book reaches lots of young girls. I have
    sons and am amazed at girls throwing themselves at guys. Anytime you can get a message to them about how valuable they are to God I’m impressed.
    Well done!

    K Dawn’s book sounds like an interesting and worthwhile read that will be good for teens and young adults.
    I wish her lots of success with it.
