MM Shelley guest post

Hey all, author MM Shelley is stopping by to give us a little insight into who Kye really is!! Enjoy:)

HI Everyone, I’m M.M. Shelley and I would like to thank Jessi for having me as a
guest today. I would like to share an interview with Kye Wailele from Mishap and
So please pour yourself a cup of your favorite Latte and if you’re at work, hang
up your “On Break” shingle as we take five with Kye.

What is your full name?
Kye Wailele

What is the Hawaiian meaning of your name?
Kye means Rejoice and Wailele is waterfall. The name Wailele was given to my
father from his mother Pele.

When is your birthday?
April 12, 2028

When did you first learn about magic?
From my father, who learned from his mother, Pele, the Hawaiian goddess.

What kind of school do you go to? Do they teach magic?
After my parents died, my uncle Kona thought it was for the best that I was home
schooled. My uncle moved my cousin Kana’i and me around the islands a lot,
so we were never in one place for too long. With our magic we have the ability
to control fire and lava. The Hawaiian gods are always at war with each other,
always fighting for control of the islands, it’s amazing that there are not more
islanders who don’t know us.

How do you like having Pele as your grandmother?
We’re not entirely close.

Having lived in Hawaii all of your life, is there any place you would like to see?
I’ve been to Australia once, I would like to go back and spend some more time

What is your favorite pastime?
Whenever I get the chance I like to spend it in the ocean, I do a lot of surfing,
nothing competitive. I don’t think it would be fair to everyone else if I did enter
considering I’d have an unfair advantage. Sometimes when I’m out in the water
and I want a really good wave I will control the waters current, make it do what I

A big thank you to MM Shelley and Kye for stopping by today:)

For centuries magical beings have hidden in the darkness, waiting. Some good, some evil. A battle is brewing, and only twins, Grasiella and Tatiana, have the power to stop it.

A secret that has been kept since the dawn of time is about to be revealed with devastating consequences. It’s the summer of the year 2045, and sixteen year old Grasiella, along with her twin sister,Tatiana plan to visit their grandmother in Hawaii. They have no idea that when they arrive on the island of Kauai, they are about to be drawn into a secret, the secret, of their family’s dark origins and magical powers.

On the first day of their arrival, their grandmother is accused of a horrible crime involving a faerie. Whispers have spread throughout the islands about the disappearance of a faerie named Sita Knook and her connection to a mysterious group known only as the Cinerians.

Before long, Grasiella and Tatiana are doing battle with ancient races and magical beings. All the while trying to retrieve an ancient stone of power and impress a couple of local surfers, Kana’i and Kye, cousins who have some pretty exciting family secrets of their own. It’s pretty serious stuff for two girls who were planning to spend the summer at the beach getting tans, but then that’s the trouble with secrets, sometimes they just don’t stay buried
