I’m here today with another young writer interview. Everyone, meet Kathryn Braddock!
Teenage author Kathryn Braddock finds her passion in writing stories of magic, hope, and light’s victory over darkness. She loves wolves, as seeing some in person inspired her series, The Guardian Trilogy, and she is also a poet and lyricist, finding inspiration in nature. She lives in the big state of Texas.

What genre do you write in and why?
I write in fantasy, medieval, and Old Norse, because I feel so much imaginative freedom with those genres.
What genre do you read in and why?
I enjoy reading fantasy as well, and medieval, because of the imagination and how easy it is for me to get lost in those worlds.
Who or what inspired you to write?
Several factors…first, my imaginative personality in my childhood, as I was writing since I was five. Then, I saw some wolves in Colorado and began writing a series about the animals. Then my writing mentor began a class, teaching me everything I’d need to know.
What is the biggest thing you've learned through your writing journey?
How to write plots. The different twists and endings, and what makes it interesting.
How has being a Christian affected the way you write vs. the way you used to or probably would otherwise?
My books are clean, compared to other books of the day, by non-Christians. I also like to add morals to them. Without my Christian writing style, they’d probably just not have as many morals.
What do you want to accomplish with your writing?
I want to learn everything I possibly can, and impact others with my writing.
How do you define success, and do you think you've reached it yet?
I believe success is achieving a goal. Once a goal is achieved, or successful, then a new one can be set up and worked toward to succeed at that.
What is one thing you want to tell other young writers?
Not to put themselves down by reading others’ writing and thinking theirs is so much worse. Everyone has room for improvement, that doesn’t make them a failure in writing. Instead of lining their writing up with someone else’s, they should line it up with their own, to see the improvement they are making.
I hope you all enjoyed this interview! If you want want to learn more about Kathryn and her books, check out the links I posted right below her bio. Until next time (where I talk about turning 18 😉), happy reading!
