***TODAY'S FEATURE AUTHOR***

Sarah Hunter Hyatt

Sarah Hunter Hyatt grew up outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. As a child, she kept notebooks of stories that she would share with her little sisters at bedtime. Now, an adult, her stories have matured but still occupy her thoughts (and notebooks). “Faelad” is Sarah’s second short story for Xchyler Publishing, her first being “Stunner” which appeared in A Dash of Madness: a Thriller Anthology. Along with writing, being a mom to three wonderful kids, and a wife to a patient husband, she also dabbles in graphic design.


Author Q & A


How did the idea for this story come to you?
After a trip to Ireland, I fell in love with the land and people there. One of my favorite sites was Newgrange, a passage tomb that is older than the pyramids of Egypt. I had to write about this extraordinary place. 


What makes your main character unique? 
She feels like a nobody- an average young woman- nothing special. When she digs deep within, setting her fears aside, she learns that she is stronger than she had ever imagined. 


Is this part of a series?
No, I like where it ends. The next chapter of her life can be whatever Claire wants it to be. 


When did you realize you wanted to be a writer? 
When I was a teenager, I took a creative writing class and fell in love with storytelling. 


What have you written? 
A short story called Stunner, appearing in Xchyler Publishing’s “A Dash of Madness: A Thriller Anthology.” 


What are you working on? 
Currently working on a YA paranormal manuscript. 


How do you write? Longhand, typewriter, laptop, tablet? 
Mostly on my PC, some on my laptop, and I always keep a notebook by my bed, just in case a scene hits me. 


What is your writing zone and how do you get there? 
I write best at night, after everyone is asleep. I enjoy the quiet of the world around me at night time. I can sit at my desk for hours and let the words flow without interruption. 


What’s the hardest thing about writing?
Trying to get what is in my head to mirror the words on the pages. 


What’s the easiest thing about writing? 
The creativity! I can do whatever I want with my characters, they are all mine to do with as I please. 


What are you currently reading? 
I’m reading three books at the moment but putting most of my time into “Austenland” by Shannon Hale. 


Do you prefer reading eBook or paperback? 
I’m old school, I like paperback.
