Kristina started writing fiction in the first grade and hasn't stopped since. Along the way, she's written everything from greeting cards to book reviews, but fiction remains her passion. She has been writing more or less full-time since 1997, with a series of breaks for“normal” jobs, college and a couple of degrees.

“So why are you here?”
“Do you like that I showed up at night?” she asked, avoiding his question. “She walks in beauty like the night.”
“I wrote that a long time ago,” he said wearily. “When I thought there was a chance…”
