I write. I drink tea. And I live my life to the fullest, knowing that my abilities come from God.
My name is Kayla Ann, I’m an author who just recently released her first non-fiction book with McFarland Publishing House (2020). Agency in the Hunger Games: Desire, Intent, and Action in the Novels takes a scholarly look at why readers love Suzanne Collins’ famous series The Hunger Games. At its heart, my book comes to the conclusion that we, like Collins’ characters, are looking for agency, for the ability to control our desires and actions regardless of internal and external influences.
I have been writing short stories, fiction, poetry, and non-poetry my whole life. My first short story, “Kate the Pirate,” written in second grade was only the beginning of a long and wonderful journey. At a young age, I was dedicated to eventually become a published and established author. However, as any writer may know, this is not as easy as it seems. This wonderful world of writing is also complex and sometimes exhausting. So in this blog I will be offering up Writing Tips, Writing/Poetry competitions, excerpts of my own work, and my own experiences in the hope of encouraging other authors to continue on creating wondrous worlds of their own.
Feel free to hit me up in the comments with any questions you might have about writing.
