Misty Hayes has always had a thing for escaping headfirst into fantastical books. This is what led her to start writing her own adventures down. As someone who has spent a long career in law enforcement, Misty has a love for strong female protagonists. She also directs short films and claims to have been bitten by the traveling bug (not to be mistaken for a radioactive spider).
When Misty isn't filming or roaming the planet, or diving into another novel, she's spending time at home in Texas with her myriad of nieces and nephews in tow.
Here are some fun things about Misty:
Do you have another job other than being a writer?
Yes, I am shiny and new to the indie publishing world. It’s like I have two full time jobs! But writing has always been a passion.
Did you ever think you would be unable to finish your first novel/novella/short story?
Not when I was writing it! My first book needed the most work because I didn’t have the skills and knowledge I have today from just experience and growth.
What inspired you to write?
I’ve always wanted to try my hand at writing, but I never knew how to approach it. One day, I realized I was only going to get older and I had to start writing for myself some time.
What has been your most successful avenue to get reviews on Amazon?
I’m not sure I’ve mastered that just yet! I’ve got 18 on Amazon, but I am always striving for more. All I want is for people to enjoy the book.

It's hell being a teenager.
Larna Collins has never understood why her dad skipped out on her and her mother when she was twelve years old. Until then, he was a devoted and loving father.
But six years later, during a renovation of her childhood home, she unearths her father's journal from under a dusty floorboard. According to his final entry before he left, he had recently visited a small parish in England.
The entries draw her to this seemingly quaint village, which Larna discovers isn't as charming as its blood-craving inhabitants want her to believe, and she learns that she isn't the only one trying to track her father down.
Could this explain her father's disappearance? Or was placing her in the center of danger her dad's master plan all along?
What is your next/latest project?
I am currently working on finishing Volume 2 in my paranormal trilogy — The Watchers, launching December 2018!
