    Red face Name's Kaitlyn. I'm the author of THE WITCHES' SLEEP, and I am a blogger for LHSHS

    Hey everyone! My name is Kaitlyn Deann (Dee-Anne, not Dean -_-). I'm the author of THE WITCHES' SLEEP. I'm kind of busy at this moment, but I wanted to come by and introduce myself right quick. To make things easier for me but for you to get to know me better, I've copied and pasted an interview I had with author Trish Marie Dawson for you guys to read. This is the link if you want to read it straight from there: Author Interview with Kaitlyn Deann! | Trish Marie Dawson

    NOTE: The bold is Trish talking and the other is me.

    Super excited to have the young and talented, Kaitlyn Deann today! Thanks for being here, Kaitlyn! Let’s get started…shall we?
    Can you tell us more about your latest book?


    The main character, Ella Barnes is killed at only seventeen. She was shot in the back by a mask man. She ends up waking up in different world. She has a new body, new life and new people surrounding her. As she tries to grasp this new reality, she has a strong conviction against certain lifestyles of this new world. She wants to make a difference, change the mindset of the people, but any interference with the Law on this subject results in certain death. What does she choose to do?

    What is the inspiration behind your latest project?

    I blame the spark of the idea of THE WITCHES’ SLEEP on the movie “Inception”. One specific line that the main character in that movie said made me start to think a little deeper into the subject. He said something along the lines of “When we die, we’ll wake up,” and that’s how the idea of THE WITCHES’ SLEEP was born.


    The Witches’ Sleep sounds unique! As a young adult writer, you must find publishing exciting, so can you tell us about your writing and publishing journey?


    It has been thrilling and yet nerve wracking. Everyone I’ve come in contact with have been extremely supportive of me though! I couldn’t ask for better!


    It’s good to hear it’s been a positive experience for you so far! Tell us about your main characters – are they people you would be friends with in real life?


    YES! I love my main characters with all my heart! I wish they were real!


    I’ve wished this many times myself, lol. So if you could make one of your characters real for a day, who would you choose?


    TUCK! Tuck, hands down. Reason? I. Have. No. Idea. He’s just so intriguing and mysterious, I suppose. He’s just………TUCK! You can’t explain him in just a few words.


    I can’t wait to meet Tuck now! Just for fun…if you’re alone on an island for a year with only one book, what would it be?


    “The Hunger Games”, because I love the story line and the characters. And Peeta.


    Peeta. Yes, I have a crush on him myself (did I say that out-loud?!). Let’s say you could choose any Author, living or dead, to shadow for a year, who would you choose?


    J. K. Rowling because she seems to know where the Fountain of Endless Creativity is.


    Excellent answer!! So, Kaitlyn…what advice would you give to young writers?


    Never give up. You can do anything you set your mind to. If you believe you are able to do something great, then DO IT! Don’t let others tell you that you can’t. No one is stopping you. Only YOU can stop you from following your dreams.


    Amazing advice! What can we expect to see from you in the future, Kaitlyn, and where can readers find your work?


    You can find my work on Amazon for now. As for the future, my next novel that’s going to be released will be the sequel to THE WITCHES’ SLEEP. It’s titled WORLD OF THE BEASTS. I’m currently work on it.


    Sounds good! I’m just curious…if your book became a movie, what would the opening song be?


    “Don’t Stop” by Jars of Clay.


    It’s time for our Rapid-Fire Questions, Kaitlyn!

    Welcome, Alex! I'm a fan of games (board, card and video...), but not very athletic :P Good to have you around.

    Also, to Kaitlyn: is World of Beasts going to be a direct sequel? Or something like a spinoff? I read through a preview of your book and enjoyed it, so I'll have to pick it up some time.
