Kristina's love of writing emerged when she was just a teenager and her heroes include Kurt Vonnegut, Neil Gaiman, and Patti Smith. She founded a web-based music magazine (in the days before blogs!) while in graduate school and later co-founded a local Austin food blog. She is mom to a tenacious toddler, proud aunt, devoted yogi, and super sci-fi/fantasy fan. When she’s not having a baby dance party in the living room, she's working on drawings or writing and listening to new music.
