Today’s featured author is Alysha Kaye–writer of the amazing romantic story The Waiting Room. A book that I thoroughly enjoyed when I read it. You can check out my review here. Along with my 5 Quick Questions that I was lucky enough to ask Alysha Kaye. Without going into too much details, The Waiting Room in my opinion is about true love and what it means to keep it. No matter the sacrifice and no matter how love you have to wait for it. I highly recommend this book to all the romantic at heart.
Oh before I forget:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALYSHA KAYE!!!

Jude and Nina are the epitome of that whole raw, unflinching love thing that most people are jealous of. That is, until Jude dies and wakes up in The Waiting Room, surrounded by other souls who are all waiting to pass over into their next life. But unlike those souls, Jude’s name is never called by the mysterious “receptionist”. He waits, watching Nina out of giant windows. He’s waiting for her. What is this place? How long will he wait? And what will happen when and if Nina does join him? The Waiting Room is a story of not just love, but of faith, predestination, and philosophy, friendship and self-actualization, of waiting.
The Waiting Room is available on Amazon (in print and Kindle) and also at Book People in Austin. Alysha’s WordPress blog has now reached over 2,200 followers—she not only writes about the novel and self-publishing, but also teaching, love, and life.
Alysha Kaye was born in San Marcos, TX, where she also received her BA in Creative Writing from Texas State University. She worked in marketing for a brief and terrible cubicle-soul-sucking time until she was accepted into Teach for America and promptly moved to Oahu. She taught 7th grade English in Aiea for two years and also received her Masters in Education from University of Hawaii. She then taught here in Austin, TX for a year at Ojeda Middle School (DVISD) and absolutely loved it, but wanted to move to the high school level. She now teaches freshmen at her alma mater, Jack C. Hays High School, and tries to squeeze in as much writing as possible between lesson planning. She dreamt about The Waiting Room once, and offhandedly wrote her boyfriend a love poem about waiting for him after death. Somehow, that became a novel.
