Kristy Cambron has been fascinated with the WWII Era since hearing her grandfather’s stories of his experiences as a B-17 co-pilot in the war. She writes WWII and Regency Era Christian fiction titles, which placed first in the 2013 NTRWA Great Expectations & 2012 FCRW Beacon contests, and finaled in the 2013 Lauries. THE BUTTERFLY AND THE VIOLIN, Book One in the Hidden Masterpiece series on the prisoner camp art of the Holocaust, released from Thomas Nelson Publishers July 15, 2014. A SPARROW IN TEREZIN (Hidden Masterpiece #2) will release in April, 2015. She’s a proud Hoosier, living in Indiana with her husband and three football-loving sons, where she can probably be bribed with a coconut mocha latte and a good Christian fiction read.
What was your favorite book as a child?
My favorite book wasn’t actually a novel. Believe it or not, it was a Disney animation book that first captured my love of storytelling.
What book did you read that first made you want to be an author?
It was most definitely Jane Eyre. I didn’t read it until I was in my twenties, but I remember being so enthralled that I stayed up to turn pages most of the night. The beauty of Charlotte Brontë’s writing was like nothing I’d ever read before.
What was the last book you read, just for fun?
While on a plane ride home from a business trip, I read Austenland by Shannon Hale. I really liked it! It’s campy and fun. Not too serious. I also loved that it had a sweet, satisfying ending.
What upcoming release or releases (your own and/or by other authors) are you most looking forward to?
On the top of my list is The Covered Deep by debut author Brandy Vallance. I read it a couple of weeks back and the story still has me captivated. I’m really looking forward to watching how readers respond to this stunning debut! It’s one of my favorite reads of 2014 for sure.
