Kathy-Lynn Cross


Born in Pomona, California, Kathy-Lynn Cross lived there for twelve years until her family moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, where she resides today. Inspired by the backdrop of Sin City, Kathy-Lynn took her English professor’s advice and wrote about the hometown she knew. Kathy-Lynn wasn’t always a writer. In 2008, when her niece was hospitalized, Kathy-Lynn decided to do something special for her, so she wrote a short tale for her to read. After devouring it in a single day, her niece and the nurses in the pediatrics wing quickly asked her, “What’s next?” That was when a new chapter in her life opened up, and Kathy-Lynn realized that she wanted to become a Storyweaver.
Kathy-Lynn loves the color red and uses it obsessively in everything, including her bottle-blonde hair accented with red highlights. She has a knack for baking and cake decorating—that is when her fingers are not busy writing mayhem. When recharging, she can be found curled up with a vanilla coffee and a good book or spending time with her hubby of twenty-five years, their daughter, three cats, and their fifteen-year-old, silver dollar fish named Tweddle-Dumb.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Having a reader say, "This story spoke to me" or "Your writing touched my heart." Having the power to inspire. When I sit down to write that is what I aim for as my goal. And when my characters stir my emotions, I get excited and hope that they will have the same effect on the reader as well.
What are you working on next?
I'm super excited. I have a few WIPs right now. I'm going to be in a new anthology titled, Damsels of Distress by Vamptasy Publishing. It will release, this month on Oct 28th, 2017. My short story, Clipped Wings will be one of the stories featured in the anthology. I'm also working on an old novella, A Spirit's Last Gift. I had an extended version which I had to cut back because of word count, and I'm hoping to release the novella before the holidays. And the second book for the Unseen Series is due to release before the end of 2017. Look for, To Keep Death's Vow - Book Two The Unseen Series to be on Smashwords soon.
