Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

Through the years I've always kept my prices low and offered freebies, but times are hard now for us all and I am just now catching up with other authors as to prices, so the 2.99 books will be 3.99.
