A Visit With K. Dawn Byrd, Author of Double Identity

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ January 19, 2013

Donna:

K. Dawn, welcome to "Deeds of darkness; Deeds of Light." I love doing blog exchanges, so let me invite our readers to turn over to your blog www.kdawnbyrd.blogspot.com to read about my latest when they finish here. But first, K. Dawn, tell us what Double Identity is about.

K. Dawn:

Seventeen-year old Bree is shocked when she discovers she has a twin sister, even more shocked to find that she's an identical twin. When Bree's sister becomes obsessed with her boyfriend, Luke, Bree must decide who wants who and who's telling the truth.

Donna:

That’s a truly intriguing plot. What would you like readers to take away from your book?

K. Dawn:

Double Identity is a young adult book about two identical twins, one a Christian, one a nonbeliever. I'd like for the reader to take away that no matter what happens, God is with us. Also, people need to learn to trust their hearts.

Donna:

Why did you choose to write this book?

K. Dawn:

I thought it would be fun to explore what it would be like to have an identical twin. Of course, a young woman's boyfriend would love how she looked. Would the fact that someone else looks just like her make her insecure?

Donna:

Oh, yes. I was an only child. I always wanted to have an older brother and a twin sister. Now I have twin granddaughters who have 2 older brothers. Even though they aren’t identical, there are challenges. Tell us what you learned while writing this book?

K. Dawn:

I learned that being an identical twin can be hard!

Donna:

What kind of planning do you do before writing a novel?

K. Dawn:

I fill out character sketches in order to get to know my characters better. I ask myself what their goals are, what motivates them, and what's keeping them from reaching their goals. Sometimes, I start by writing a synopsis. This gives me information about the plot as it develops. I usually have a pretty strong plot before I actually begin the story.

Donna:

Why do you write?

K. Dawn:

I write because I can't stop. It's more than a hobby, it's a passion. It's the most fun I've ever had in my life!

Donna:

What are you working on right now?

K. Dawn:

I'm working on a thriller about a serial killer. It's a difficult story because there are several twists and turns and I have to be careful how I write it for everything to fall into place correctly.

Donna:

That sounds great. Be sure to come back for another visit when it’s out. We love mysteries on this blog. What's next for you?

K. Dawn:

I have three releases in 2012, all young adult. Something Beautiful in January. The Hot Line Girl in June. Luck of the Draw in November.

Donna:

Wow! You’re a busy lady. What you think readers will enjoy most about Double Identity?

K. Dawn:

I think readers will like it because it will keep them on the edge of their seats. When both twins fall for the same guy, who will he choose? How will he tell them apart?

Donna:

That’s great, K. Dawn. Thank you so much for visiting with us today. How can readers get in contact with you?
