Welcome! A bit about me... My name is Kristen. I'm an urban fantasy author obsessed with mythology and culture. Among others, I have Scottish and Welsh blood, which inspired many of the characters and settings in the SPIRITS' WAR trilogy. I grew up reading all kinds of fantasy and listening to multiple genres of music, which inspired me to begin writing stories and songs of my own at a young age. Some of my influences have included the authors J.K. Rowling, Kenneth Oppel, Kevin Hearne and Christopher Paolini. Born in Alberta, I currently live in British Columbia, Canada, where I enjoy playing the piano, hiking, songwriting, and of course reading and writing stories.
