Although Kalyn has been writing most of her life, WHAT WE CARRY is her debut women's fiction novel. After suffering a miscarriage in 2017, Kalyn sought to write the book she wanted to read about loss and hope in the wake of grief. She is currently working on her sophomore book (untitled) which delves into postpartum depression and the unlikely bonds that tie us together.
Kalyn wrote a novel, SOMETIME, SOMEWHERE many years ago and plans to release a kindle-only version this fall. This novel straddles a few genres- think Sliding Doors meets The Time Traveler's Wife. She is in the process of working on two more novels, both dealing with the themes of motherhood and a woman's identity.
Kalyn lives on the south shore of Long Island with her husband, two daughters and very large German Shepherd, Layla. By day she is a professional horseback rider and owns her own equestrian business where she trains horses and riders how to jump. The barn has always been Kalyn’s happy place and you will see echoes of this in all of her work.
Before Kalyn began her career as a rider and author, she studied Biology and Biochemistry at Stonehill College with the intention of attending veterinary school and has worked at both large and small animal clinics in the New England area where she grew up. Instead of heading to vet school, she followed her passions and moved to NY to begin her career on the elite show jumping circuit. She hopes to find the balance between her two loves- riding and writing- as she embarks on her career as an author.
