Crystal James


I am a director of an alternative high school in Kansas City, Missouri. In my spare time between teaching, talking to parents, raising my own two kids, and making sure my two dogs stay out of trouble, I write fiction. I have always loved to imagine situations and then create a story out of them. My favorite type of writing is for young adults and realistic fiction. You will not catch my writing vampire stories any time soon. Some of my favorite writers are John Grisham, Lisa Scottoline, Suzanne Collins, and Sophia Kinsella. I would love for everyone to read my books and let me know what you think!
