Born in 1993 in Reading, Pennsylvania. Other hobbies include art, music, and animals.
I started writing stories when I was very young. At the time, these were silly pieces of fanfiction for various things I was into. It was only when I got older that I started to take things more seriously. In high school, I wrote a short story for a local contest. Before you ask, no, I didn't win. Even though I was a little discouraged, I kept writing.
Currently, I live in Oklahoma with my parents, my brother, and our pets. In my picture, you can see my baby girl Zari.
What made you want to write about fireflies?
While sitting on the school bus in high school, I listened to my music and daydreamed. At the time, I had just discovered Owl City, and the song Fireflies was my most played song on my iPod. During the agonizingly long bus ride, I just remember letting my imagination run wild and all of a sudden, this image of a wolf and firefly playing together appeared. The rest, as they say, is history!
Is Kaitlyn Noble your real name?
Nope, it's what we call a pen name. Or simply, a name that I use on my books and nothing more. Why would anyone do this? There are lots of reasons for writers to use pen names. For me personally, I wanted a name that was both easier to remember and easier to spell! That way, more people could find my books.
How long did it take you to write Laminar?
From the day I got the idea to the day I published, it took 8 years. However in that 8 years, I'e also made lots of progress on at least two other books for Laminar. I also rewrote The Firefly Rescue at least seven times.
Do you base your characters on real people?
Not on purpose anyway! The more you read and the more things you experience, the greater chances you have of basing ideas and characters off of things in real life. In that aspect, I'm sure that my life experiences crept in when writing Annabelle and Lewis.
