A while ago I was asked to write a 5 word memoir. The mere idea of this was mind blowing. After all, how could I wrap up my whole life in 5 words? Granted I'd only lived for 17 years and some months, my life is - Good Lord willing - far from over. But still, 17 years is hard to wrap up in 5 words... not to mention the fact that I'd changed so much in those 17 years.
After much struggling - melding 5 different verbs together - trying to think of cool phrases - and banging my head against the top of my desk - I came up with something I was quite pleased with.
Who Am I? A Writer.
At a glance, it seems rather simple. But, when I look at it, think about it, I see so much more. Think - I am seventeen years old. My most memorable years - though I do remember most of them - are my teenage years. I have changed so much in my teenage years. But, one consistency: I have written. I started and finished my first novel when I was thirteen years old.
I am a writer - nothing more, nothing less. I can write about anything - my own experiences, or make up my own. I can bend my friend's experiences, and I can write spin offs on my own favorite novels that I read.
One thing I can say for certain that I have learned in my 18 years is that: No matter where life takes me, no matter how much I change, no matter how many friends come and go, no matter how many books I read, or how much my mind swirls with new ideas, wonders, questions, no matter how many experiences I have, one thing will stay the same: I will always, ALWAYS, write.Her style is the perfect combination of a thriller, horror, romance, and suspenseful mystery, all with an underlining of humor.
Her currently publications include "Impending Doom" which is free to read on Smashwords.com and Figment.com also available in the Nook store and downloadable to your Kindle when you get the free file from SmashWords.com - it's free because she wrote it at 15 years old and feels her writing has improved since then and people shouldn't have to pay for what isn't up to par. So while reading, please keep in mind that she's still young but was VERY young while writing this novel in just under a month!
"Sly Darkness" is available via Amazon.com, Kindle Store, and directly through her publisher CreateSpace.com. You can find direct links on her personal website - KyaAliana.com
"Adrenaline" is Kya Aliana's novella - the first eight chapters are free to read on Figment.com (just search for "Kya Aliana" and ALL her FREE stories will show up) and can be purchased in paperback on Amazon.com, CreateSpace.com, and the Kindle e-book is in the Kindle Store!

I loved this book!! If you enjoy a riveting vampire novel with twists, turns and humor -- you will love this book too! The characters are well developed, the story flows and is exiting. This small town is in trouble, but only a few know, and who would believe them anyway? Vampires? Crazy! Looking forward to more from this author.
