Hi, Kiersten! Congratulations on your book. When did you first realize you wanted to write?
When I was seven years old.
Where do you get your ideas?
What was your favorite scene to write in your book?
My favorite scene to write was how Monika and Ori decided to celebrate Christmas.
Who did you write this book for, and why do you think they should read it?
I wrote this book for anyone who still holds onto the guilt and their past mistakes. Even if forgiveness has already been granted or earned, I think they should read my book. The main character, Ori, shows how she was able to forgive herself and other people.
An uncanny friendship between the living and the dead
Ori is a wandering ghost whose only lead to regain her memory is a digital camera. During her journey, an odd-looking little girl with knowledge the ghost needed to get her hands on came along.
Could this meeting be a blessing or a curse? Will they learn to appreciate each other’s strengths? Will they be able to work together to achieve their respective goals?
