Party with KC Dyer

Party animal KC Dyer is in the house... or at least on the blog.

Karen (KC) has been my crit partner and friend for... wow. Years now. She's a former teacher, and the author of the time-travel EAGLE GLEN TRILOGY, MS. ZEPHYR'S NOTEBOOK, and A WALK THROUGH A WINDOW. The sequel to that book, FACING FIRE, hit the shelves this month. Karen lives with her children and other animals just outside Vancouver, British Columbia.

Here's the official blurb for FACING FIRE:

Darby Christopher is back and ready for adventure in the hotly anticipated new novel FACING FIRE. This blazing sequel to A WALK THROUGH A WINDOW sees Darby back to her old tricks, time-slipping into worlds more terrifying and vivid than in her wildest imaginings. Against a background of anger and arson, Darby discovers the key to understanding the present may well lie in unlocking the hard-learned lessons of the past. FACING FIRE is published by Doubleday Canada, and is available on-line and in bookstores now. Find out more at

Karen's numbers:

Your compound value number is twelve, which is a higher octave of the number three. It is considered to be the ancient number of completion and is an indicator of great understanding and creative capacity. Twelve can also foreshadow one being sacrificed for the plans or intrigues of others.

Your name number is eight. The number eight indicates someone with good judgment, but eights may have relationship issues because what they show on the outside doesn't always match what's inside. Eight is a eternal number that indicates divine balance.

And her response:

I love that my numbers reflect creativity and eternity -- both elements which interest me greatly in the process of writing books where the characters travel through time. Personally, I'm fascinated by the strength, beauty and rhythm of numbers and the universality of some elements really blows me away. Since writing SECRET OF LIGHT, I have been a huge fan of Fibonacci -- the reflection of some of his mathematical insights in nature is awe-inspiring.
