About Misty Hayes
Misty Hayes has always had a thing for escaping headfirst into fantastical books, which is what led her to start writing her own adventures. 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.
The Blood Dagger Series is a high-octane Young Adult Paranormal trilogy.
Interview with Misty Hayes
Q. How would your 10-year-old self react to what you do?
A. I may be biased here, but I’d like to think that my ten-year-old self would be slack-jawed and wide-eyed—police officer and writer—I still feel extremely fortunate in being able to do both.
Q. What is your definition of success?
A. That’s a great question, I guess if/when I get there I’ll be able to answer this question more thoroughly. Easy answer is—being happy with where I’m at in life at that particular moment. Sometimes it’s hard for me to enjoy the little moments like I should.
Q. What is a dream you have that you’ve yet to achieve?
A. Having my book be turned into a major motion picture or TV show.
Q. If you see a puddle on the ground, do you walk around it or over it?
A. Depends on how lazy I’m feeling at that particular time. I love to run in the rain, though… makes me feel like a kid again.
Q. What tips do you have for a new writer?
A. Don’t overthink your work; have faith in your characters and writing because in the end, you’re the only one who can bring them to life.
