My name is Kariana “Kay” Anderson. I’ve been writing stories since I was six years old (my first was a short about a penguin family, I think). I consider myself a writer first and foremost. Writing is a passion and way of life for me. I write every day, whether in my journal, for creative pursuits, or professional tasks.
I graduated from California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) with a degree in English-Creative Writing. I worked my tail off and am proud to say I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2017. I am currently applying to graduate school. I intend to start my studies in Fall 2020.
I finished a young adult novel (70,000 words), entitled Here She Lies.I’m currently pursuing publication. I used to write exclusively young adult fiction. However, my time at CSUSB pushed my writing scope and abilities in the best way possible. I’ve written three short stories in paranormal/horror genre: “Eight,” “The Woman on Sutherland Lane,” “The Ghost of Black River.” I’m also working on two additional novel projects. One novel is a fantasy, and the other is a thriller.
2020 will bring exciting changes to my life. I’m working on a new business platform: Behind the Blank Page. In the past, I’ve written content for local businesses as an employee. Now, I’m writing as my own boss. I cannot wait to see what 2020 brings. If you want to see examples of professional work, click here.
As of yet, I am unrepresented by any agencies. I haven’t had any luck yet, but I continue to submit work and refuse to give up. I believe in my work, and I know that writing is what I want to do with my life. To achieve my goals, I want to partner with an agent.
