A former MK from Indonesia, Krystine Kercher now shares her love of adventure by writing fantasy and science fiction from a Christian perspective.


1. Could you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I am a world-traveler! Growing up, I lived overseas in Indonesia, and in the Philippines during high school before moving back to the U.S. Since then, I've lived in South Carolina, Colorado, and Nebraska. 

I love gardening, and I'm the happy owner of one very funny cat! 

2. Describe your book Eiathan's Heir (Legends Of Astarkand) in 30 words or less. 

What do raven omens, squirrel damage, caustic poison, and a fire-breathing dragon have in common? Bjorn Horsa rides to rescue Duchess Maeve's city and her stepson before Woden destroys them.

3. What was the hardest part of writing your book?

The hardest part was deciding where to end the book, because this isn't the end of the story arc. There's more!

4. What books have had the greatest influence on you?

The Bible 
J.R.R. Tolkein's The Hobbit, and The Lord Of The Rings
C.S. Lewis's Narnia series, Space trilogy, and Till We Have Faces
Other favorites: Shakespeare's plays, The Scottish Chiefs, The Viking Bow, and too many other books to name...

5. Briefly share with us what you do to market your book?

You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Google-plus, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Tumblr.

6. How do you spend your time when you are not writing?

I like to read, make jewelry, create and sell artwork online (I also design book covers for clients), sew and garden, hang out with my kids, and play with my cat, Shelah. 

7. What are you working on next?

I'm working on a new YA series that chronologically predates Legends of Astarkand. I've got the first book, Galthain's Bones mostly written. I need to get it finished, edited, and into print.

I also need to be working on the next installment of Legends of Astarkand. I've been brainstorming ideas, but they're not ready to set down on paper yet.
