My name is Kristine, and I am a 29-year-old American published author. I was born and raised in Colorado in an area that looks pretty much like a John Wayne movie. Now I live by the mountains in Utah where people think it's weird that I lived in an area that looks pretty much like a John Wayne movie.

I used to listen to a lot of music on a loop for inspiration. It wasn't as easy back then when you just had the cassette tapes and the crappy players where the rewind button would break so you'd just have to let it go on until you got back to your favorite song and the AA batteries always died after a really short time and...I also tend to ramble.

QUOTES FROM READERS:

"I just wanted to let you know that [I] absolutely love your story. It's so captivating and interesting and a complete breath of fresh air from the typical stories that [I] can't thank you enough! Great work and hope to see more of your writing!" -S. Morning73 (for Carnies)

"You did a real departure from the usual, and it worked awesomely! The way you introduced your characters, and their relationships. You really endear your audience to the characters, human and non-human alike." -Star Garden (for A Ghost in the Hall)

"You're an amazing writer with the ability to take your readers with you into the world you've created. You've captured me and surely many, many others. And you can be proud of that.You're awesome, really." -Alicia (for Moonrise)

"This first chapter surprised me. It wasn't like any other chapter I've read of your stories so far. It was quite unusual, and yet very interesting nonetheless. Through all the different perspectives, you made me see what the characters think and feel - I could easily picture them right before my eyes." -Alicia (for October)

"Well, to get my point across straight and perfect, I'd like to point out a fact that will definitely mark this extraordinary piece of artwork: It made me tear up every single chapter." -My Ludicrous Semantics (for Effortless)
