Kristi Porter

Biography

Always a reader, Kristi Porter never thought much about writing until she won a statewide contest sponsored by the Detroit Free Press. Her nightmare vacation story - The Khaki Pants - went on to be published worldwide in an anthology. This was followed by numerous articles published in local magazines and newspapers. As her love of writing grew, she added adult fiction and short humor pieces to her repertoire.

But writing isn't all Kristi does. A preschool teacher, she won the Governor's Award for her work with young children and is dedicated to the education of young children. She also enjoys bicycling, video games, photography, Facebook, and spending time with family. She lives in Michigan with her husband Dennis, son Andy, and a menagerie of cats.
