Katrina L. Burchett is the third born of her parents six children; the shy, quiet one who has always expressed herself better with the written word. As far back as she can remember it felt natural to have a piece of paper and a pen or pencil in hand. In grade school she wrote a play or two that her classmates acted out for teachers and their students. During her middle and high school years creating poems was what she loved most, and a couple of them were printed in the local newspaper.
Burchett launched Kapri Books in 2007, and Choices is her debut novel. She wanted to go deeper than the teen sexual activity and teen pregnancy statistics, so she wrote an emotional, thought-provoking read exploring the reasons why some young people make the choice to become sexually active, and why others choose to abstain... Shauntice, Angel, Bridgette, LaKeeta and Hope are teenage girls making choices about boyfriends and premarital sex.
Choices is the first in a trilogy. The next novel will explore teen parenting (LaKeeta & Kevin) as well as the relationships Shauntice, Angel, Bridgette, Lakeeta and Hope have with their parents. It will also delve more into the lives of the guys in Choices. And the third novel will focus on teens and drinking.
