The stories kept me sane when I had no control.
They freed me from a bleak existence of abuse and neglect.
If life taught me anything, it was that living was hard, and only the dreams you made happen came true.
At nineteen, living in my uncle’s cabin in the Oregon Cascades, my life was anything but the fantasies of my childhood.
I was free, but I was alone. I was surviving.
Until I hiked into the mountains and carelessly challenged the universe to notice me.
A door made of white light appeared in front of me, compelling me to step through.
I took it. I stepped through.
Into the greatest trials, both physical and emotional, I’d ever face—into another time and unknown world that would test my strength to my core.
I would fight…
I would kill…
I would love...
Most of all, I would live.
About the author
When Kristi isn’t riding her Harley or working her day job, you can find her in front of her computer, hammering out exciting suspense stories, or chatting around on social media.
Although she has honed her writing craft for 30+ years, she only published her first book in 2012. Her strange and varied work history - having held jobs from a hotel housekeeper, a car wash attendant, an insurance underwriter, an electronics assembly line worker, a date entry tech in auto parts warehouse, a blueberry nursery shipping coordinator, a local delivery driver, and a truck driver and owner of her own trucking company - gives her a broad base from which to build her characters and storylines. Now a billing specialist for The Arc of Lane County, she supports those who care for people with disabilities while she pursues her writing career in earnest.
She got married for the first time at 38, skipped being a mommy and went straight to Grandma.
