Katrina Joyner

Biography

Katrina Joyner (1971-she lives!) was born in Fernandina Beach, Florida to a Brotherton Indian family thanks to various biological mechanizations we won't talk about here. She was first published at the tender age of 18 (or so) with her poem Unicorn placing in the Trouveare's Laureate. Heavily influenced by such greats as Marion Zimmer Bradley, Anne MacCaffery and Elizabeth Boyer she always thought her work would be serious and dire. When she began work on her webcomic, Akashik, she soon learned her other influences - Mel Brooks, Piers Anthony and Terry Pratchett - had the upper hand in the echelon of her mind.

Smashwords Interview

Do You Really Like Being Interviewed?
Well, kinda. Here, it's fun! So contact me and ask me a question. If it's a valid one, I'll answer here. Let the fun commence! Hint: It helps if you're a fan.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. I was five, and it was in picture format on grocery bag paper. I called it Viketa, and it was about a half Viking half Native American child whose father, Eric the Red, collected when she came of age to go a-viking. She had to surmount the obstacles of blending with the crew and earning the respect of her father. She eventually burned the ship and killed him.

Every character in the story was either a fox or a deer, depending on their ethnic and regional background. Viketa was a halfbreed of course. I mean, there I was age 5 and I even incorporate Viketa's mother being raped by Eric to spawn Viketa. Don't ask me how I knew these things at age 5.. the most I ever saw about Vikings were documentaries on television.

I will rewrite this story someday. The characters will probably stay animals.
