The Book Nook | Interview with Author Krystal Clark
This is much more than just a straight interview. This is Krystal’s journey from being molested at the age of 10, how she tried to manage it, what her parents’ reaction was, and how she is coping now. Krystal’s book, ‘Balance of Power,’ is in our book slider. I hope you get a chance to read her first fiction novel, and yes, there is about 90% of Krystal in her book.
A family member molested Krystal. “They thought I didn’t need them to step in because I was emotionally strong.” But there’s a difference between having a solid fortitude for career management and mental/emotional distress.
She went through some tough times, but when her coping mechanism stopped, she hit rock bottom and used alcohol to try to soften the mental blowout, but she knew she had to return to a place of function. “I’m still not ‘okay,’ but moving with meaning and purpose.”
The Great Spirit has sent a child, the Chozien, to shape our world. The Chozien’s origin is unknown, but the search for the child continues, known as the Quête. The Onyx Order, in the eastern Upperlands, has always coveted the Chozien, causing fear among the other Orders of being overtaken. The Order that holds the Chozien can make or break the future, and the progress or peril of our days rests on the shoulders of the Order that lays claim to the Chozien.
