About Kristine Lowder

A southern California native transplanted to the soggy Pacific Northwest, Kristine Lowder specializes in what one wag dubbed “excruciatingly insightful prose.” When attempting to avoid being excruciating or insightful—which is most of the time—Kristine hikes, reads voraciously, enjoys exploring the Cascades and will do almost anything to avoid scrubbing the bathtub.

Review by: Christine Vincent on Dec. 11, 2012 :
A little gem of a story reminiscent of Laura Ingalls-Wilder's work. Kristine writes a collective picture of family thanksgivings past, complete with tastes, sounds, scents and stories. Into the picture she places Uncle Norm, catalyst to reflections on family ties.
Thank you for your story, Kristine, I'm hungry for more.

I loved Kristine's micro-story, Isabella's Torch: A Thanksgiving Memoir! It was heartwarming, lighthearted and charming - I almost felt like I was sitting at the dinner table with her, enjoying a delicious turkey dinner and listening to the friendly banter. A lovely family memory, Kristine; thank you so much for the gift of your story! ~ J C Edwards (Julie Catherine)
