Kristine Lowder

Biography

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.
