About Kristi

As a child, Kristi Cook took her nose out of a book only long enough to take a ballet class (or five) each week. Not much has changed since then, except she’s added motherhood to the mix and enjoys penning her own novels as much as reading everybody else’s. A transplanted southern gal, Kristi lives in New York City with her husband and two daughters.
That’s the official version–here are some other fun facts:
~ As an undergrad, I majored in History and minored in English at the University of Southern Mississippi. While at Southern Miss, I was a member of Phi Mu sorority, and I was a Dixie Darling. And yep, Brett Favre was our quarterback!
~ I studied American History in grad school at Columbia University. I *love* history, especially the Civil War era (U.S.) and Regency- and Edwardian-era British history.
~ My all-time favorite book *and* movie is GONE WITH THE WIND.
~Weirdly enough (or maybe not so weirdly?) I’m also a big fan of STAR TREK (the original series) and BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (the newer Syfy version, with Edward James Olmos).
~Looking for information about my (mostly) historical romance novels for adults written as Kristina Cook and Kristi Astor? You can find information on the books at Goodreads (just click on either name) or HERE! Those gals wrote a lot of books–from Regency- and Edwardian-set romances to a NASCAR romance.
