Kristopher Ivie began self-publishing his work in June of 2012. He is from a small town in Central Pennsylvania and began writing when he was in high school. After writing the poem “Yard Sale” in 2012 he realized that a large portion of his early work had been lost. This began a quest to preserve his existing work and to resume writing. The trend of music, photos, and videos going viral on the internet and social media sparked an interest in achieving the same success for writing. After searching for a suitable creative outlet he discovered Smashwords and compiled 3 collections of poetry (“The Bigger Picture”, “On the Verge of Life, Love, and Lyrics”, and “Words to Paint 1000 Pictures”). In addition to poetry, he began writing several science fiction novels and entering short fiction contests. His first short story is “Texting Death” which he published October 2012 in honor of Halloween.
