Meet the Author

The youngest of four children, I’ve lived all my life (except for nine+ months in Spain) in Southeastern Michigan. I love the change of seasons and can’t imagine a Christmas without white snow, spring without drenching rain, summer without humidity (although that would be pretty nice!), or fall without patched-colored trees. But mostly, I think it’s the blazing blue skies and white puffy clouds that keep me here.


I’ve always been a reader, but didn’t start writing fiction until my second son was born. I found myself creating stories in my head as I rocked him in the wee hours of the night. Finally, I put my fingers on the keyboard and the magic started to happen. I initially concentrated on writing women’s fiction and even placed in a writing contest in California with one of those stories. But I didn’t dabble in that genre too long before I finally found my inner-tween voice and the stories began to flow. It also helps to have two tween boys living with me. Well, then there’s my husband…:)


You may notice that many of my stories have hockey as their basis. Part of that is because my oldest son plays hockey. But mostly it’s because it’s in my blood – my dad played, my brother played, even my older sister played hockey. I’ve watched a lot of hockey games and have even considered learning to play myself. Until that happens, I’ll live vicariously through my hockey loving and playing characters.


I’ve also co-authored a children’s picture book titled Tommy Starts Something Big: Giving Cuddles with Kindness with Chuck Gaidica, WDIV-TV Director of Meteorology and co-host of the morning show at WOMC-FM.

    A Truly Enjoyable Read

    Having moved to a new place, Nick Stevenson yearns for adventure. To see new sights and more of the world just like his father. But sometimes things don't work out the way he wants them to.

    When things start happening and his ceiling starts turning into some sort of storm, Nick wonders if he's losing his mind. Perhaps he's asked for more than he's bargained for in wanting an adventure. As he ponders this thought, a boy shows up asking him for help in saving his world - one known as Redwind. While everything inside cries out that the boy's request is completely unbelievable, Nick agrees and is sucked into the very wallpaper within his room. Thrown into an extraordinary world that takes him by surprise, Nick tries to grasp the meaning behind the boys odd request.

    Having always considered himself as no one special, he's completely blown away by the fact that the people he comes to meet are relying on him to set all wrongs to right. With time being of the essence, Nick does his best to do as he is asked, praying that he'll have enough time to complete the objectives that have been set out before him.

    Battling his doubts and insecurities, as well as the obstacles that have been strewn across his path, Nick finds it within himself to give it his all while trying to save a world that has come to mean more to him than he ever imagined. A world that seems more real as the minutes pass by.

    While this is a children's book, it's truly an enjoyable read. So much so, that once you start, it's hard to put down. Kris weaves such a delightful tale that you find yourself wanting to know more about what happens to Nick and the friend's that he's made along the way. I truly recommend reading this book.

    Wonderfully Creative Adventure - A Must Read!!!

    I started off telling my son that we would read one chapter a night. That lasted until we started reading chapter one, and then we HAD to keep reading. Both my son and I LOVED the original characters and the unique, creative world we became a part of throughout the adventure. Saving Redwind is wonderfully written and we can't wait to read the next book in the series.
