Kayti – Mainly a light brown with blonde highlights and redish roots, it’s straight and goes about halfway down her back.
Rissy – Golden blonde on top, but underneath it’s sandy brown…like she has two heads of hair! For real! It’s also really fizzy underneath and curly on the top layer….it’s a little past her shoulders in length.
Jaidie – Her hair is a shade lighter than Kayti’s with more blonde highlights and no red…it’s more than halfway down her back and straight, like straight! She also has side bangs that tuck neatly behind her right ear.
(Edit: Mom cut like 6 inches off all our hair! *crying faces* Hoping 4 and half months is enough time to grow it back, back we have a dance then!)
(Edit: Because it took us forever to post this…about three inches has grown back)
Eye color: Kayti has true blue, Rissy has true green, and Jaidie has true hazel…our dad did a bunch of research on eyes and found that ours are what they call true colors…lol…if you want more info you’ll have to ask him…lol…
Braces/piercings/tattoos: Kayti had braces from 12 to 14….and we all have our ears pierced! Also, Kayti has glasses…but her cool blue pair broke and now it’s just boring brown…and none of us have tattoos, unless doodling on each other for fun is counted…hahaha….
Righty or lefty: Kayti and Jaidie are righties! And Rissy is lefty!!!! (Of which she’s never met anyone else in person who is left-handed, except for our older sister who is omni-handed…so, not sure if that counts)
Ethnicity: Mainly boring caucasian…lol…English we know from our last name, we also as far as we know have about…um, a pinch of Native American….and probably some Scotch-Irish roots too! 😉
First novel written: Oh, that’s easy! The War King a group novel…*cringes* That was bad….cool concept, not well written at all! We’re planning on rewriting…
First novel completed: Also The War King….We were so proud, but hey, we did write it entirely on a Kindle Fire 7 so that’s an accomplishment in itself right? Hahaha….
Award for writing: None….*hangs heads* Well, Kayti did get an Honorable Mentions in the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards for World of Silence in its *cringes* horrible state before she edited….lol….Jaidie never enters anything because she’s paranoid someone might steal her stuff…haha…and Rissy did once and was like, not worth the stress…haha…
First publication: HAahaha, *ignores question and looks away* Yeah, not answering that because…yeah…not doing that. It was a group book gone bad. All we’re saying….
Query/Pitch: Kayti queried a ton of people! We queried one agent about our sci-fi contemporary The Never-Ending Trail…but nada on both.
Novel (that you wrote): The Dragon Prince Chronicles Book 1: Unfortunate Events!!!!!!! It’s been so much fun to write! The boys are just the best! *hugs them all tight* Even better since the betas helped and now our editor! Man, Sage and Gaven…all we’re gonna say!!! Those two…hahaha….
Genre: To write or read? We’ll do both…to write: MG and YA Fantasy, Contemporary, and Kayti likes writing Westerns. To read….

Time to Write: Evening! Between 8 and 10 in the evening…but we are not above writing at other times.

Writing Memory: Um, Chapter 1 and then THE END…Nostalgia guys….It is so fun to start and end! Not chapter 1 and then the end…you know like twenty chapters in-between, that sounded weird….lol…

Jaidie: Learning how to draw people! Lots of things to do with medieval thieves *secret book project, wink*
Want To Be Published: Yes!!! And are!!! But we’d like to be traditionally published, maybe, at some point.
Indie or Traditional: Indie for now!
Wildest Goal: To own a ranch in the literal middle of nowhere out west! Where the nearest town is over an hour away and a driveway is nine miles long! *Yes, we sound like hermits* we’d have four houses on the property one for each of us and then our parents! Lots of animals, horses, cows, rabbits, goats, dogs, chickens, sheep, and anything else we might think of or want!!!
Wow! That was so much fun! Like, we had a lot of fun filling that out…as far as we can remember…it was a few months back…lol…
