Take a Look!


(Above: My brother the day he and I broke into a Mayan temple and saw THE MOST AMAZING THING OF ALL TIME. I don't think anyone in our family has ever believed our story.)

My awesome brother, Spike, just created a little website for me. I needed an author site that links to all of my various blogs and book sites. It's super simple for now, but we'll be making tweaks and improvements as time goes by. I luuv it. Tell me what you think!

It's pretty cool! I love that you started your note with;

Welcome! If you are looking for Kirsten Miller, the American author of bizarre young adult fiction, you’ve come to the right place.

Your brother sounds awesome too.

aah-jealous!! amazing website. love the design. you're lucky. . . .if i wrote a book, my brother wouldn't make me a website. he probably wouldn't break into a mayan temple either. i might, though, with the right companion. except i would chicken out if i saw one of those big ugly nasty rainforest bugs-ick.
what did you see in there?
also, saturday the fifth is weatherperson day. and the thirteenth is blame someone else day. there's also a national day of awesomeness (or something along the lines of that, but it's the same basic idea), i just can't remember when it is. (i need to get a calendar with all the interesting holidays marked on it. every day has something, just not all of them are interesting. but yeah. . . .)

I remember you telling someone else in an interview of you two doing that, and it being amazing. It's cool that you guys were adventurous enough to do that, I would too if I ever get the chance.

And awesome website! I love it.

Kirsten I kind of get the feeling that you like keeping certain stories to yourself.
So I won't ask what happened in the Temple.
Even though I'd like to know (as we all would).
Is yours brothers name actually Spike or is it a nickname he was given?
The picture is wicked by the way!

I once took the family dog through an abandoned railroad tunnel.

Well, the tunnel was abandoned by the railroad. I was pretty sure we wouldn't get hit by a train, because the tracks had been removed (just the wooden ties and gravel roadbed remained). On the other hand, a whole lot of spiders had taken up full time residence and set up textile mills or whatever it is spiders do for a living.

When we got back, with a small bouquet of narcissus blossoms we'd found in an abandoned garden on the grounds of the burned out mansion (we checked, no tunnels, the place had been built on a concrete slab with no basement) for my mom, I had to explain how our collie got spiderweb all over her nose.

My dad and I still prevaricate over whether the weirdly placed round concrete platform nearby was for a World War II anti aircraft artillery emplacement or for a water tank. On the one hand, those sorts of guns are put in batteries, so there SHOULD be more than one such slab, but on the other hand, who'd make sure a water tank had a great view over the entire valley, metropolitan area, etc. I mean, you can see five or six cities just looking north from there.

But yeah, a Mayan temple exploration is WAY cool. Stay mysterious, Kirsten!

Robert in San Diego, writing too much because the coffee is taking effect.

omg i want to know that story if it really is true ;n; i'm like obsessed with anything South American. when i was reading The Eternal Ones and haven is looking at new york like it's the old days and there's a news paper that says something like "grave fears for south american explorer" i got goosebumps because at the same time i was reading a book about percy fawcet, AND, when i was reading it i thought of you and that it was definitely your type of thing kirsten.

also i think i love your brother.

The website is great! I do really wanna know what you saw in the temple but I doubt you'd just announce online and I know that your trying to build the suspense.
