Kristine has been reading since the age of 3, beginning with fast food signs and moving on to the Weekly Reader book club by age 4. So after having read approximately 49,905 books she figures she has enough experience with them to offer an opinion on what's out there for visual consumption.
When she's not reading she's redecorating & painting, watching zombie movies or odd medical programs on Discovery Health channel. Kristine's one true passion is the written word and Shakespeare is her personal god. She rubs his nose (on the bust in her den) before sitting down to write what she imagines to be the future Pulitzer Prize-winning Great American Novel.
Kristine was born and raised in San Jose, CA until on a whim of pure stupidity she decided she was bored and picked up and moved to Phoenix, AZ. Thinking she would only be in Arizona for a couple years, it has now been over 10, and she has settled in for the long haul, living with her boyfriend and their two cats.
She also likes the color pink.
