Steven Michael Krystal
Steven Michael Krystal is the author of the Minjy the Robot series of e-books for kids ages 8 to 12.
“I’m a true believer that goodness prevails.” According to Steven, this theme is consistent in all of the Minjy the Robot fictional stories.
He wrote his first e-book, Minjy the Robot, in 2015 and hasn’t looked back since. “It’s really great to now have the time to write. It’s something I’ve always loved to do.”
The sequel, Minjy the Robot Returns, followed shortly afterwards. Steven’s third e-book, Minjy the Robot – A Pirate’s Life, was released in August 2016. In May 2017, Steven released Minjy the Robot in Glitter City, which is the fourth e-book in the series.
“When I began to write the Minjy the Robot series, it started out as a fiction fantasy for children. It developed into a fiction allegory for middle grade readers, and deals with morals, ethics, and human nature.”
At last check, Steven shared that he's well into writing his fifth e-book in the series.
"As always, this story will be a completely new adventure for Minjy."
It has been just over two years since Steven wrote his first e-book, and he reflects on how his main character has evolved.
“One of the many enjoyable aspects of writing the Minjy the Robot series of e-books is to see how Minjy has changed – for the better of course! Her behavior and appearance have evolved from book to book. The creativity in developing Minjy’s changing demeanor and the way she looks has been a fun experience.”
For this Canadian author, life lessons are commonly full of twists and turns, and are really great teachers.
“I’ve learned that at times, some things have a strange way of turning out. To have hope and faith that things will usually work out for the best is a motivating concept for me. I’ve also learned from experience the importance of kindness and compassion. I try to incorporate all of these thoughts and feelings into the stories that I write.”
Steven is from Ontario, Canada.
