About this author

K.A. Krisko currently lives in northern Colorado with her two Australian Cattle Dogs. She grew up in the Mojave Desert and Sierra Nevadas in California, went to college in Colorado and Arizona, and received an MS in Forestry. Since then she's lived in states from Texas to Montana. She enjoys outdoor activities like hiking, walking the dogs, mountain biking, skiing, and snowshoeing, and indoor activities like reading and writing. She has published a number of fiction and non-fiction literary shorts and a number of fantasy-fiction novels: The Stolen Trilogy ("Stolen", "Crypt of Souls", "Hyphanden's Box" and "The Stolenworld Companion") and "Cornerstone: Raising Rook," the first of a new fantasy series.
