“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” -Ernest Hemingway

You want to know more about me? Well, let’s see…
I am just an average twenty-something following my dreams.  I have a full time “day job” and by night I am author.  I guess you could say that writing is like my super power (I always wanted one of those).  I am the lover of wine, sushi, football and the ocean; that is when I am not wrapped up in the literary world.
Please feel free to contact me to chat about my writing, books you think I’d like or just to shoot the, well you know.
A portion of all my royalties are donated to The Marcie Mazzola Foundation.

For more information about me and my books, please see my Official Website.

Thank you  – XoXo Kristen

In addition, I am flattered you were moved to show your own appreciation from my highly emotional driven offering. Thank you for taking the time to read my words.

    thanks for taking the time to like my blog kristen. just had a quick look round yours and i’m impressed! will take a more leisurely look over the weekend. keeping on blogging! bw s 🙂

  15. I could not find contact you info on your blog and I need your help. Feel free to delete this post, but go to my blog and tell me something. Scroll down to the post about my novel, Red Clay and Roses and let me know if my photo of the cover displays, please. Then click on my page at the top and tell me if the cover art displays on that page also. My husband brought up my blog on G
    oogle, but these photos came up “link not found” and we cannot figure why. Was wondering if this is so for everyone who pulls up my blog, or is this just a problem with his computer. If it is everyone, I may need to figure out how I can fix this. I really appreciate your help. Is it difficult to be such a mentor at such an early age? I need all the help I can get. hahaha………..

    • Everything other than the post that I commented on seems to be working fine, I am no expert at this stuff though so I hope I helped! I dont mind leaving this comment up, just in case someone scrolls through one day that might be able to help more! 🙂 I am pretty used to helping people of all ages and skill levels at my vast employments so I think I was prepared for this. I also do not feel like the writing community should know an age, I think we’re all on a level playing feild and need to learn from each other and help each other as much as possible 🙂 Take care my dear and keep in touch!

  16. Hi Kristen,
