K. Stevens is one of those people that began writing and constructing sentences at an early age. Her first words written down, aside from handwriting exercises for school, were written in the form of a story. Before those, she drew sequential pictures and told anyone that would listen what was happening. Her first real book was written and illustrated at the age of five, lovingly called 'The Are and the Christmas Tree'.
Of course, the thing people perceive as 'real life' took over and distracted the strange little girl until she no longer constructed stories...Out loud. At the age of twelve she found her author's bone again in the form of seven characters that continue to whisper in her ears, telling her of their exploits.
Kaelia had an unknown co-author all throughout her life; her father. He had even written and published a few things himself, back in school. She didn't know about them until she was older. While working on what was to become her first published book, her father agreed to be a co-author, helping with critiques and story ideas along the way. It was great fun for a while.
In 2013, he passed away from pancreatic cancer.
There was no choice after that. The book had to be finished. His legacy had to be upheld. She knew from that moment that she would finish the story that both of them had started and become an author, no matter what.
