And a fun Author interview question
. Â Â Â How did you come to write this particular book or series?
Kas started out as a sort of Beauty and the Beast story that I wrote in high school. Over the course of ten plus years, I wasn’t satisfied with the basics and tore it apart over and over again. After piecing back together the patchwork I’d made of it, it became what it is now.
