Kiersten White


USA flag

A stay-at-home mom to two rather adorable young children, Kiersten has a lot of time to daydream between running errands, writing freelance articles, and supervising playground acrobatics. Needing a new hobby, she decided to put her BA in English to use and type out some of the stories constantly playing in her mind. Much to her surprise and delight, writing books was even more entertaining than reading them - and took longer, too.

When not chained to her computer in a fit of creativity, Kiersten maintains a humorous blog, reads anything she can get her hands on, and occasionally cleans her apartment. Emphasis on occasionally.
