About Faith McKay

faith mckayStoryteller. Scribbler. Alliterater. Word creator. A little weirder every day.

Before I knew how to form letters on the page, I scribbled lines that looked like writing on page after page, bound them together, and handed them to people. I think that most writers tend to have a moment from their younger years they look back on and think, aha! it was destiny, and this is the earliest of mine.

I wrote a book with characters that struggle with the idea of having a destiny called PROPHECY GIRL. In comparison, I really lucked out that my destiny was to struggle with comma placement and be that awkward lady who points out puns at parties.

But like Walt Whitman said, I am large, I contain multitudes. Other things to know about me…

I wear two different colored shoes. My favorite thing about this is people’s extreme reactions to it. Honestly, I just think it’s fun.

I am a survivor of child abuse. I could make a snarky comment here, but that seems rude to the kids who are still facing their abusers. If that’s you, you aren’t alone.

I listen to more music than people are probably supposed to. If you follow me on twitter, you’ll see what I mean.

I have lived with chronic illness for over a decade. For more about what it’s like to live your days with a chronic illness, check out the spoon theory. I use most of my spoons writing my next novel.

A lot of people don’t like me because I laugh too much. I’ve been told this a lot of times, so no, I’m not kidding. It’s also the reason a lot of other people do like me, so go figure.
