About Kyona

A little bit fun...

"How in the world do you pronounce your name?" 

I get this question a lot.  I love my name!  It comes from the Native American Blackfoot tribe and means "Shining Star". Pronunciation: "Ki-oh-nuh"  Hope that helps! :)

*MusicRight after Reading and Writing, my favorite thing to do is listen to music. The best part is that I can listen to music while I read or write!

*Movies - I have an endless string of movies waiting on my Netflix Queue. I especially like anything with Kevin Costner. My favorite movie is "Sahara" with Matthew McConaughey. Another one of my faves is "Long Kiss Goodnight" with Gena Davis.

*TV Shows - I have a number of favorite TV shows. Castle, NCIS, Backstrom, and Rizzoli and Isles are the ones I'm addicted to right now.

Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurty

A little bit serious...

Let me start this with an immediate disclaimer:  I am a very unpolitical person.  I have not put these comments here to offend anyone.  Part of being a writer is being very open and honest about your opinion


* Don't complain about a problem unless you're willing to be part of the solution.

* Laughter and Humor really are the best medicine.

* Life is hard and usually not fair.  Deal with it.

* Teachers are the most important and the least respected professionals in the world.  Every job has a purpose.  But, how did doctors, lawyers, custodians, bank tellers, etc., become what they are?  Because of the education they received from their teachers.

*My grandpa was a Marine and my Uncle is a Marine. My dad and both his parents were in the Army. My step-dad was in the Air Force.  Whether or not you are for or against the war, our troops deserve our support and prayers.  They were not drafted; they are doing something they believe in.
