Interview with Krystal Jones

What do you read for pleasure?
Mainly Romantic Novels... usually the really sad ones lol
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Nooks and Kindles are pretty cool :)
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Hertfordshire, I don't think it really influenced my writing very much actually, because I always find myself looking for inspiration in different places (like if I go on holiday I'm more likely to put pen to paper because of the quite life and inspirational surroundings) whereas here you get used to what happens around you and can't describe it as well as you would if you'd seen it for the very first time.
When did you first start writing?
I've been writing forever, I wrote my first novel at 11.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Well, it's all about hurt and how love can save a lost soul. Miss Dryheart, is about a girl who can't speak, she's very unfortunate. Her parents got rid of her when she had a stroke at 14 when she was moved to an orphanage. From there she found security in a crumbling old house that's been abandoned for years. Then Matthew comes along, he's running from his abusive father and forever trying to keep his pregnant mum safe. When Matthew and Raine (Miss Dryheart) meet their worlds collide and bring back the hope that was once there for both of them.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The freedom in the words on the paper. You can escape you own life for a little while.
What do your fans mean to you?
EVERYTHING. They mean more than my writing itself; without them I wouldn't have held on to my motivation for as long as this and go on to write about 5 different books.
What are you working on next?
I've got so much I'm working on right now! Miss Dryheart is a short story which is soon to be finished -fingers crossed- but I have a paranormal series also uncompleted which is a very different and thrilling journey to what I'm used to but I love the change :)
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Looking after my granddad which I love.
Who are your favorite authors?
Suzanne LaFleur, her writing is so beautiful, I'm currently reading her latest book, Eight Keys. Her books can be read at any age, whether you are old or young, they are so beautiful and sad. The most captivating and inspirational thing I've ever known. Love Aubrey, is my favourite book in the world.
