Kristy Denice Bock


Kristy D. Bock - A Wordsmith and a Fixer-Upper.

Born in the sunny state of Florida, Kristy spent her childhood reading everything she could get her hands on. Moving from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Snead's Ferry, North Carolina, Kristy continued her love affair with books and storytelling.

After becoming a mother of four and nurturing her children wishing they'd become avid readers themselves, Kristy took the leap and published a series of books with various publishing companies. Her love for combining humor with serious themes is evident in her writing, which often incorporates religious and mythological elements.

Today, Kristy resides in Kinston, North Carolina, where she is the Assistant Publisher of the Neuse News, a hyper-local digital media outlet. She is also an active member of the Kinston Smart Artist Project and a passionate advocate for drug recovery and reduced recidivism.

When she's not busy at work, you can find Kristy playing Hearthstone Battlegrounds or teaching herself Adobe Character Animator to bring her books to life using animated puppets. And if she's not doing that, she's probably fixing something she broke. With five grandchildren to keep her on her toes, Kristy is never without something to smile about.

So if you're looking for silly books about serious things, Kristy D. Bock is your gal.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Writing to me is cathartic. If I'm having a bad day, or perhaps a down-in-the-dumps day, killing of a character always puts me in a good mood. I'm not at all sure what a therapist would say, but I do have a tendency to kill off a lead character in the first few chapters. Thank goodness I write paranormal or that would be catastrophic to my writing career.
What do your fans mean to you?
When I get an email, or a Facebook/Twitter message that someone has read what I wrote and enjoyed it, I simply don't know how to respond. This inner child erupts from the core of my being, runs around yelling at the top of her lungs, and effectively shuts down my adult thinking abilities. I don't write for myself, the stories and characters are already rolling around in my brain. I write because I want to illicit a response from someone else. The best compliment that someone can give me is my stories made them cry, or laugh, or some other emotional response to the plight of my characters.
