Hi! I’m Keira Gillett and I am from Palm Bay, Florida. By day I am a IT Systems Analyst; by night I’m a children’s author. I own a dog, named Oskar, after a giant ruler in the Zaria Fierce Trilogy I wrote. He's my little foxy-baby, and has me wrapped around his little paw. We have lots of fun adventures together, which you can follow on Instagram with the hashtag #oskarpie.

The Zaria Fierce Trilogy debuted March 2015 with Zaria Fierce and the Secret of Gloomwood Forest. The stories follow a biracial girl's quest to save her friend from a nasty river-troll. The follow-up trilogy featuring Zaria's changeling friend Aleks Mickelsen, reunites the gang as they come together to tackle new adventures, crushes, and teenage trolls.

Blog Tour Stop: Head Hopping when Writing Stories

Good morning everyone,





Come find me at Brenda’s Log Cab Library where I discuss writing a series that is broken down into trilogies and involves head hopping (also known as point of view switching).





What are your thought on the matter? Do you love seeing different characters weigh in on a story or do you prefer to stick with one protagonist/antagonist throughout?

Sandra Hi Keira, I tend to be productive, and then start doing something else like reviewing and then I come back to Goodreads again. I must admit I like this place. It reminds me a lot of the Facebook layout.
