**Christina Meyerly, you are our winner! Enjoy!**
This cool fallish morning, I am having coffee with Keely Brooke Keith to learn more about her and her books. Pull up a chair, have a cup and visit with us!
Will you tell us about your books?
My Uncharted series, which begins with The Land Uncharted, is romantic frontier fiction with a slight sci-fi twist. My upcoming release, Aboard Providence, is a historical spin-off of the Uncharted series.
Are you a plotter or a panster?
I’m a plotter-pantster blend. I sketch the concepts for major plot points and any scene ideas before the first draft. But when I start writing, the story takes on a life of its own. It rarely looks anything like I first imagined.
Do you like to listen to music while you write?
Not while I’m actually typing, but I love to put on music and dream up my stories while I do housework.
If you could live in any time period, what would it be?
The new earth in Eternity.
What is your favorite food?
Frosted Mini Wheats with vanilla rice milk. Mmm.
Do you like to travel?
Do you travel for research for your books?
Not specifically as my books are set in an imaginary land, but I do look for inspiration while I travel.
Why did you decide to become a writer?
I’m not sure I “decided”. I started writing stories in blank notebooks when I was old enough to write and have never stopped. I mostly wrote short stories and poems. Once my daughter was old enough to give me space during the day, I started writing novels.
What are your hobbies?
I crochet, collect antique textbooks, and love to discover small towns on weekend trips.
Do you like to cook? Would you share with us a favorite recipe?
I cook for my family, but it’s on the same level as laundry. I don’t love it or hate it, and it probably all tastes the same. Ha!
If you could pick any genre to write in besides your current genre, what would it be?
I blend genres, so that keeps me happy.
What is your favorite verse? Why does it encourage or comfort you?
“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Cor. 5:17. It’s such a blessing to know that IN CHRIST I am not bound to the world or my past or my fleshly nature. I can be who He says I am and live how He says to live in Him.
