Author Interview

Author Interview: Featuring Kellyn Roth

Photo by Suzy Hazelwood on

A few weeks ago, Kellyn Roth’s latest novella came out, Becoming Miss Knight, and now I’m here to share a delightful interview with her. I hope you enjoy!

Jen: When did you start writing? And what made you decide to be a writer?

Kellyn: I started writing when I was about seven, and honestly, I don’t know! I just started writing. I’ve always enjoyed telling stories, so that was probably why.

Jen: Who is your favourite character?

Kellyn: In Becoming Miss Knight, Nettie. She’s an absolute gem – and so wise!

Jen: Where do you get your inspiration from?

Kellyn: I don’t rely on inspiration – it’s a flighty beast! I prefer to lean on grit and hard work.

Jen: What do you hope your readers will take away or learn from your books?

Kellyn: A solid couple hours of enjoyment and, maybe, a life lesson or two – but since I can’t really influence that, I try not to worry about it. I know God will do what He wants with my books, and I can’t control that. I just have to keep putting them out!

Jen: Are there any particular “Easter Eggs” you like to have in each of your books? I.E. References to other literary works? Or cameos?

Sure! I like to talk about various books in my books! Jane Austen’s novels make frequent appearances, along with the Brontë sisters and Shakespeare. I don’t think I included any real references in Becoming Miss Knight, but book 3 is packed to the gills with them!

That was so interesting and fun! Thank you so much for letting me interview you, Kell!

About the author:

Kellyn Roth is a Christian historical women’s fiction & romance author from North-Eastern Oregon who has independently published multiple novels, the most notable being The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy series. You should definitely call her Kell.

Kell lives on family-owned property outside an unmemorable but historical town with her parents, two little brothers, arbitrary cat, precious border collies, a dozen cows, and lots of chickens. She also possesses a classic, vintage aesthetic which does not at all speak to her country girl side, but such is life.

When not writing, Kell likes to blog, teach writing to her various students, have day jobs which allow her to keep her car properly insured, and spend lavish amounts of money on Dairy Queen french fries. She also likes to talk about Keira Knightley and her own books just … way too much.

You can contact her at her Website, Blog, Newsletter, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and MeWe.

About the Book


Alice Knight’s debut is in less than a year, and everything has to be perfect. Of course, she’d rather be riding her horse or playing with her younger siblings than learning to curtsy. But, with her mother in France for a holiday, the care of the house falls to her—and what better time to learn what it really means to be a lady?

Ivy, her twin sister, has other things on her mind. Namely, the endless conundrum of why she promised to keep an eye on her younger siblings while her parents are gone. She’s the least-qualified person to take care of them, but, bound by her word, she’s determined to try.

Even with all the guidance and advice available, becoming Miss Knight isn’t proving to be easy for either of them. However, any amount of work is worth keeping a promise to their mother.

What did you think of Kell’s answers? Have you read any of her books? Have you read Becoming Miss Knight yet? Are you? 😉

Tell me in the comments! 😀
