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.
All three books in the Winterhaven trilogy, HAVEN, MIRAGE, and ETERNAL, are available now from Simon & Schuster/Simon Pulse, and can be purchased wherever you buy books (if a store doesn’t have a copy in stock, ask them to order it!). 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.
My first YA realistic fic novel, MAGNOLIA, is also available now wherever books are sold (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.
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.
