Welcome, and thank you for dropping by my home on the web!
I’m Kristi, and I write books for teens. Like most writers, I’m also a voracious reader, and if I’m not writing a book or reading a book, I’m probably somewhere online, talking about a book.
The first two books in the Winterhaven series, HAVEN and MIRAGE, are available now from Simon & Schuster/Simon Pulse, and the third/final book in the series, ETERNAL, will be released Fall 2013. The series is set at the fictional Winterhaven School in New York’s Hudson Valley, a school that’s, well….not like other schools. Think X-Men meets Twilight.
I’m thrilled to announce that the International Reading Association chose HAVEN as a 2012 Young Adults’ Choices novel! (click here for more info and the full Choices book list) Additionally, HAVEN was a finalist in the Best YA category of the 2012 National Readers’ Choice Awards, and is a nominee for YALSA‘s 2013 Popular Paperbacks list.
If you’re looking for some “official” Winterhaven themed items like tees and iPhone cases, be sure to check out my Zazzle and Cafe Press stores! If you’re interested in receiving a signed bookmark, you can find the details on the About page, or the FAQs.
*NEW!* Wonder what kind of music Aidan Gray would have on his iPod? You can find his official playlist, along with the new MIRAGE playlist, HERE!
*NEW* My first YA realistic fic novel, tentatively titled MAGNOLIA, will be released sometime in 2014 (also from Simon & Schuster/Simon Pulse). Here’s the blurb from Publisher’s Lunch: In this modern-day twist on Romeo and Juliet set in small-town Mississippi, a 17 year old girl must cope with tragedy while trying to remember why she hated her Romeo in the first place.
