Iyana Jenna & Kopyor Sintetits (Iced coconut)

 Dear Elyzabeth, thank you so much for the chance to show my favorite drink in this Happy Author Hour!

My favorite drink is called Kopyor Sintetis in my language, or you can call it iced coconut in English. It is non-alcoholic and made of coconut milk, gelatin, ice, and homemade fruit-flavored syrup. I really like this drink because it’s so refreshing and easy to make. Here is the picture of the drink. Looks so fresh, right?

About Iyana

Iyana writes M/M short stories and novellas. Her works have been published by Evernight Publishing, JMS Books, Books to Go Now, Torquere Press, Bitten Press, Leap of Faith Publishing, Breathless Press, and Alfie Dog Fiction.

Iyana lives in Jakarta, a city famous for its traffic jams, a lot of cars and motorcycles, and people selling stuff on the roads. You can spend two hours on the road going to a place you can reach in half an hour in a normal situation. Thanks to the traffic jams, though, Iyana can come up with a lot of stories, mostly shorties, as she prefers to spend the time during her trips writing into her cell phone rather than sleeping.

Another thing Iyana loves is kitties. Right now she has three of them. Their names are Cil, Horus, and Betsy, and one kitten. When she doesn’t write, she plays with them, or they would play with her when she writes.
