Broken Pieces

Author Interview – Amber Kallyn

What books have most influenced your life? I think with just about every book I read that touches me in some way, influences me. If a book makes you think long after you read ‘The End’, then you kind of always keep a part of it inside you.

Can we expect any more books from you in the future? Hells yeah. Many, many, and many more ; )

What are some of the best tools available today for writers, especially those just starting out? The internet is #1. There are so many yahoo loops dedicated to authors sharing information about the industry, writing, you name it. New authors can search and find them, then start soaking up all the knowledge shared by others. And there truly are so many authors out there happy to help and share.

What contributes to making a writer successful? Write. Write some more. Study the craft. Read for pleasure. Then get back to writing. It takes time and practice, just like learning and becoming good at any new thing.

Do you have any advice for writers? Find a critique group. To me, that’s the number one tool to becoming a better writer. Critique other people’s writing, and you’ll begin seeing your own mistakes easier. Let other’s crit your writing, and they’ll show you things you didn’t see before.

The key is finding a good group, but there’s a lot of information out on the internet on how to do that.

What do you do to unwind and relax? Reading, bubble baths. Now that it’s warming up, swimming. Our weekly movie night with me and the kids.
