Krystyna Faroe

Biography

Krystyna writes travel reviews, fantasy novels, juvenile novels and plays. Brushing up on her technological skills is another of her interests.

Krystyna has written children's books and articles for informational websites. Her articles are on sites in the United Kingdom and the United States. Her new adult science fiction/fantasy series of "Elanclose", "Aqueous Passage" and "Travertine" introduce her parviscient protagonist characters, and Kisin the antagonist who not unlike the Kisin god displays ruthlessness. Through character development the clan members change and so does the readers experience as they go through the same emotional turmoil. "Elanclose" is creative and takes the reader far away from the everyday.

Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
I love the classic writers, Thomas Hardy, Jane Austen, Wilkie Collins, Edith Wharton and the Bronte sisters, probably because I have an interest in history and culture. There were so many standards to follow, etiquette and defined practises that had to be observed that it seemed more difficult to be socially acceptable. I'm thankful that society has become more lax and that we are all on more of an equal footing these days.

Onto authors of the present, I enjoy writers that make me laugh, Carol Matthews and Sophie Kinsella always brighten my day. Since I like fantasy Stephanie Meyers is a favourite, Dan Brown, Tracy Chevalier, Margaret Atwood have entertained me with well written novels. I guess the ladies tend to win in these authors but I have so many favourites that It would take too long to list them. I have favourite authors in all genres.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
I will appear to be very uncreative here as I can't help but put Pride and Prejudice at the top of the list. Again, it has to be the time and setting, the cultural expectations and the emotional undercurrent that is carefully subdued locked me into reading it over and over again.

The Girl with the Pearl Earring enthralled me. Tracy Chevalier's mastery of research and creativity for this novel gains my absolute respect.

The Undomesticated Goddess is hilariously funny and wonderfully romantic. After reading it I couldn't help but keep on smiling.

The Da Vinci Code had me spell bound from start to finish, again the research impressed me and since I had the edition that contained photographs it became visually stimulating too.

There are so many books that I've enjoyed that I could go on and on but I'll end with Tess of the D'Urbervilles. I found this book dramatic and emotional. The characters are excellently portrayed with events that stunned me and sent me reeling at the unfairness of human expectations.
