About the Author
Kia Carrington-Russell is a young author working on her first series: “The Three Immortal Blades”. Kia began writing at the age of fifteen in high school- finding that all her warped and strange dreams were giving her a fantastic new world- and since then she has never looked back.
Kia was born in a small town in Australia, moving around a lot at a young age until finding a stable town where she finished her schooling. Kia found herself enjoying and expressing herself through poetry, short stories and writing, photography, painting and drawing. All these mediums help Kia express the different world that she is so fond of.
In ‘Senior Art’ Kia focused on feminism and female empowerment; exposing through her work issues and concerns that many people would rather just “sweep under the rug”.
In one art installation, Kia made a bed out of Pokémon cards- the concept being that when she slept a new world would come to life and it was the only one she saw and constantly lived in.
Kia now focuses on her photography, writing and self-help blogs on her website: ‘Precious Living’.
Kia is now keenly working on “The Three Immortal Blades” series knowing that this book has to be shared with the world and that is what she aims to do now.
Kia writes in her Australian home, trying to focus at times on simply what is running through her head, as her cats either terrorize her legs as scratching posts or her puppy barks in her ear for play-time. And as she continues her series, they grow with her book.
Kia is strongly supported by her friends and family and thanks them dearly for being with her along the bumpy road and nothing would please her more than having your support as well.

Interview with Kia
1. What is your writing process – how do you get the ideas?
A lot of my ideas come from my dreams. I will have a dream of a certain scene and than from there think in the shower, driving to and from work, during work, while shopping etc on ideas that can evolve from that one small scene and usual after only a few days I already have a plot planned out and characters who I have fallen in love with. I think of sayings that they might say and quickly write them down so I don’t forget, creating dramatic lines and a structure of their personality already.
2. What inspired you to start writing Possession Of My Soul?
When I began writing I was fifteen. I had alwas enjoyed expressing myself and enjoyed writing already and had high apprasial from teachers of small pieces I had written in regards to plot lines, suspense, twists etc. And then I had my dream of a certain scene and of my characters, expanding on it. During that age I was reading a lot of fiction and loved the different characters and worlds that were created. I think this is what inspired me- That I can create anything and at the fragile age of fiteen and trying to figure out what my life purpose was it became a goal and dream of mine.
3. Do you use your own experiences when it comes to writing?
Honestly I don’t know how I couldn’t. Due to my own experiences and watching movies etc I have a feel for what someone might do in certain scenarios. I even at times cry when I think of how a character might react enraging myself so I can completely understand how they would respond and act.
