K. L. Byles now lives in Roanoke, VA because her family’s old stone house in Montvale burned to the ground on October 29, 2018. She and her husband were grocery shopping at the time of the fire. Their adult son escaped by jumping from a second story window. Then, unharmed, he tried twice to re-enter the house to rescue the family dog. He was unsuccessful. Their cherished big white boxer Matty perished.
In addition to continuing with the “Crow” series, the author plans to write a series of stories for young readers in Matty’s honor.
Hold your loved ones dear because your world can irretrievably change in the blink of an eye costing you everything.
