Maxine (Booklover Catlady) asked Amanda Kyle Williams:

Where did the inspiration come from for the wonderful character of Keye Street? Is she based on anybody that you know?

Amanda Kyle Williams Hey Maxine. Thanks for the question. So glad you're enjoying Keye's adventures. The Keye Street character was inspired by my Chinese niece, Anna, who is being raised by white southern parents. Anna is still too young to read the series. But Keye's character and personality is a compilation of many people I've known, as are all my characters, and maybe a little of myself. But Keye is far braver and much more clever than her author. Also, she can eat as many Krispy Kremes as she wants.
