About this author

I’m happily married to the love of my life (don’t gag) and raising three beautiful children in the gorgeous state of Virginia. We live just outside Washington, D.C., and every day I wake up to find myself stuck in traffic trying to get there.

The horrid commute gives me plenty of time to zone out and think about my characters in full, brilliant details (I’m a safe driver; don’t worry). Stories give me a way to forget about the sometimes smelly strangers sitting next to me on the fifty mile trek into town (I pick up hitchhikers every day. True story. Check out www.slug-lines.com if you don’t believe me).

HELLLLOOO!

I swear to you all that I'm alive and well. I've been working on ASLEEP (title subject to change), busy at the day job, getting excited for my sister-in-law who's about to have TWINS, and prepping for the Riverdale Literacy Festival.

Krystal Wade It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to. Cry if I want to. Cry if I want to. You would cry too if it (getting older) happened to you. I'm 28 again. I've lost track of how many times I've turned 28. :-)

I am writing a new series, The Book of Red series. My agent is currently shopping it around. I'm also working furiously on a horror/thriller, should be complete soon. And a scifi. Nothing releasing right now, but I'll probably have several in the near future.

How is your book going? I've often thought about doing that too.
