Kristen may have been born in Oklahoma, but the mountains and forests of the Pacific Northwest called her home almost seven years ago. She resides in Bellingham with her husband, Judd, and their "fur kids", two oversized Norwegian Forest cats, Evan and Julian. She has always been an avid reader and appreciates a wide range of genres, which definitely helped when she studied ancient history and Native American studies in college. In her spare time, she can be found hiking, practicing nature and animal photography, listening to great music, nurturing her inner child, or napping. What she lacks in height, she makes up for with an easily excitable disposition and zest for life. When she isn't bookselling, she can probably be found talking about her future plans for goats and a corgi.
