Hey, everyone. Kara here, or as I’m known on Wattpad, Pandean. I decided it was time to start a blog and be more active in the social sphere. For those that don’t know; I’m a 20 year old YA fantasy author whose debut, WHITE STAG, is coming out from St. Martin’s Press/Wednesday Books in Fall 2018. Before that, the novel was (and still is) posted on the popular writing site Wattpad and has garnered half a million reads so far. I go by Pandean on Wattpad.
I’ll always be shocked whenever I think back on all the things that happened–book deals, wattpad, etc. I was considered an at-risk youth and not a lot of people believed I’d go anywhere in life. So this entire experience has been so rewarding and I’m awed every day by my wonderful readers.
A bit more personal: Other than writing I enjoy working and practicing with weapons, such as throwing knives, swords, staves, and spears. I also love fire dancing and ice skating, though I can’t do the latter myself. I also enjoy reading a lot of ancient texts like grimoires and sagas as well as nonfiction books about history. I do read fiction but I find myself reading more horror/suspense/thriller than I do fantasy!
A few of my favorite movies: “What We Do in the Shadows”, “Byzantium”, “Neverlake”, “Deadpool”, and “The Babadook”.
I also adore animals and have 2 dogs and 3 cats, though I don’t live with them since I live in my own apartment.
I consider myself a friendly person, so say hi and drop a line, and tell me what YOU’D like to see on this blog.
