Kayt Miller is not my real name. It’s my alias, my nom de plume. It allows me to write all my romantic and sexy thoughts down without my students discovering my secret. It’s sort of exciting. It’s exhilarating to lead a double life.
There are times when the author and the real me are the same people. Like the fact we live in the midwest where it’s cold in the winter and hot in the summer. If it weren’t for the other two seasons, I’d move to warmer climes. But since of my family and friends all live nearby, it’s hard to think of living anywhere else.
Truth be told, my degrees from Iowa State didn’t lead me to write. Reading did that. I was searching for a book. One about a certain type of woman and a specific kind of man and I couldn’t find it so, I wrote it. I called it Game Changer and it couldn’t have been a more appropriate title. It changed my life in many ways. While my real job is teaching young people, my fun job is conjuring up characters and situations to write about.
I’ve also learned a few things along the way. Like the fact that hiring an editor is a must, albeit an expensive must. I’ve learned so much from that process and hope that shows with each new book. Another thing I’ve learned is that reviews matter. A good review will make my day while a bad review will bum me out for a day (or a week) but I always learn from them. So, leave me your reviews. I read them. Your opinion matters to those of us who write and who want to get better. Don’t be too mean, though. I’m just a woman who likes to write about love.
Be sure to check back for information on my new books. Email me if you have questions. I’m not great about checking my email but I’ll try to be better. All right, I’m out of here. I’ve got some pages to write. Yours, Kayt
