KL Parry


Adventurer and daredevil - sometimes. I am an amateur Videographer that enjoys laughing at herself. I am an out of the box thinker, a foodie and critic. I am a composer of words recording thoughts, ideas and deeds in articles, short stories and books - you can check out my blog at klparry.wordpress.com.
My first completed novel: "The Pirate's Daughter and a King's Ransom", I self-published but have since pulled it for revisions - I want my work to be the best it can be. My novelette: "Girl in the Mermaid Tail", is available in digital format. Keep your eyes open for several new projects I have in the works.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
My first 12 years was spent in different towns in several different states - four to be exact, though I will keep the particulars of which four to myself. It was a wonderful time in my life. Well, mostly wonderful if you don't count the "moving". I hated that part. Particularly when I was about ten and about the time I had begun to develop a mild interest in boys. Okay, so it was one boy. Nevertheless, I hated moving and the "having to leave behind my friends and interest, and all the familiar haunts and places I had not yet explored" part of moving. But, back to the good stuff.

My sisters and I were allowed a tremendous amount of freedom and we took advantage of it to explore as far as our legs would carry us. We would always find ourselves a secret place - like the hollowed out honeysuckle bush where we would go to plot out our next adventure. Of course that was a different time, when the world was smaller and people were less afraid. Or, perhaps I was just that fearless, which was true most of the time. Why, before early puberty cursed me with the woes of womanhood, I had rarely suffered a nightmare except for this one time I dreamed a crocodile was after me - though it might have been an alligator, I'm not sure. I did escape it. I sprouted wings and flew away.

Wow! I've slipped the track a little so I will stop here and redirect to the question of how did this influence my writing. I will answer that question with this statement.

"I write what I know, what I have seen and what I can imagine and I have accumulated lots of material to draw from."
When did you first start writing?
I can not remember exactly when I first started writing, but it was during Junior High School - Middle School as they call it now - when I really developed a love for writing. I wrote for and worked on putting together the school paper and took up writing songs in my free time, making up the melodies on my guitar. I was much better with writing lyrics than playing guitar ;)
