Overview

When one door closes, another opens... or so they say. But what happens if that door is stuck? Some choices you are forced to confront, no matter how ugly or dangerous. Such is the doorstep of Alyson Bell, a tenacious teenage girl new to the rural town of Hollow Creek; a town rumored to be haunted by a ghostly spirit and a cat with more than the usual nine lives. Alyson tests her own strengths and weaknesses as she transitions into her new life, facing everyday teenage obstacles (bosoms and boyfriends), and hurdling over supernatural mysteries only she is predestined to encounter. Does one girl have what it takes to piece together the myriad of clues left behind in her century-old house to end a cat-astrophic curse, vanquish an evil soul-stealing vampire and still have time for a relationship with her new boyfriend, all before the next full moon?

About the Author

American-Canadian YA author and actress, Kristin Groulx was born in Pasadena, California, the only child of her parents, a sea captain and a veterinary technician. Her father is of English, Irish and Dutch decent, while her mother is nearly half Swedish and German. Growing up across the map, on the East Coast in Woodbridge, Virginia, she developed an early interest in the arts. At first, it was with the fine arts, including drawing and painting. In the latter part of her high school years, she moved overseas to Sasebo, Japan, where she pursued creative talents including modeling, creative writing, yearbook and graphic arts layout and theatre. Anything involving the arts became an open book for her to put a pen to. Upon graduating with a 3.8 GPA and a National Honor Society induction, she traveled with her family back to America. She attended the University of Missouri-Columbia where she took courses in her major of Fine & Theatre Arts, as well as minoring in Psychology. She went on to study Theatre Arts at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon, studying Improvisation with Scott Parker and Method Acting with Victoria Parker and William Tate.

During the years upon arriving in Canada, she pursued a career in writing. She began editing novels for close friend, author, and classmate, Eric D. Goodman, whom later would become the editor for the misadventures of Alyson Bell book series. Beginning in the year 2004, she has written and published six young adult novels in the genre of Paranormal Romance, with a seventh book forthcoming.

She is known for playing the recurring main character "Tamora the Sorceress" on the webseries Cornwyth (2010) filmed by director, Kendrick de Lepper of Shadowyn Films, including Cornwyth: Tales from the Staff - Dragon Bridge (2011) and Cornwyth: Tales from the Staff - Dragon Egg (2012). She also is known for doing background performer work for several television and movies including The Perfect Boss (2013) , A Sister's Revenge (2013) , Dead at 17 (2008) and most recently, Hit by Lightning (2014).
