I’m Kristen. I’m a picture book writer who loves telling stories. Some of my stories are loud, some of them are quiet, some will make you laugh and others will make you think. Hopefully, all my stories will make you want to keep reading!

As a child, I loved to read. My favorite authors were Dr. Suess, Judy Bloom and Beverly Cleary. My favorite picture book was “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” by Judi Barrett. I loved the absolute silliness of a town where food fell from the sky! Today, some of my favorite authors are: Tara Lazar, Jess Keating, Katey Howes, and Julie Falatko.

As a preschool teacher, one of my favorite things is introducing my students to new books. A great book can open the world to you; a world full of possibility, full of fun, full of adventure and full of wonder. I invite you to come and read with me!
