Author Interview – Jessica Kristie

What genre are you most comfortable writing? Poetry comes the easiest for me and from a deep part of my soul. I’ve found extreme enjoyment in writing in fiction and will continue to grow that craft.

What inspired you to write your first book? After writing several poetry books I felt the need to grow into writing a novel. I wanted to challenge myself as well as felt the words already stirring.

Did writing this book teach you anything and what was it? Absolutely. I learned what I could do and what I could do better. It was a wonderful experience that continues to challenge and inspire.

How did you come up with the title? Barbed-Wire Butterflies felt somewhat poetic but also has a literal meaning. I will save the literal meaning for my readers but metaphorically it represents the beauty in these young girls who are also in a tough and ugly place. Beauty and pain wrapped together in one package.

Tells us a bit about your publisher? Winter Goose Publishing is a traditional small press who have been supportive, caring, and let you feel a part of the entire process. They made my book beautiful. They have grown exponentially over the last year and I expect great things from them as they grow their catalog and authors.

Will you write others in this same genre? Yes, I intend to continue to write in the general fiction genre with some shift from literary to suspense.
