K. J. 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.
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.
Lhung is a celestial dragon trapped in mortal form - and no one can see him. That is, until he meets the girl in the garden who can see him very well indeed.
They both with their secrets forge an intimate friendship that can never blossom farther, even though Lhung desperately wishes it could. His love for her forces him to linger on despite emotional adversity and angry rivals.
And even though, he often reminds himself, if she found out he were also a vampire she may never want to see him again.

A collection of short stories written over the span of thirty or more years. (The author lost count.) Some are bad. Some are even terrible. Some aren't bad at all. Step into the world of K. J. Joyner's wit, humor, and occasional drama with this collection.
A dragon trapped in a human body befriends a mysterious girl only to fall into one-sided love. His wanton feelings keep him nearby even though if she found out he were also a vampire she may never want to see him again.
Warning: HB is an amer-manga that reads left to right. It sometimes contains adult content.
A collection of quick sketches commenting on events that happened to the artist. They're sloppily drawn, they're funny, and they're (exaggerated) true stories. Maybe you can relate.
