Kristen Watterson has been a professional graphic designer and illustrator since 1999. An artist from a young age, writing books was always one of her dreams. She started drawing characters and writing story fragments as a young girl growing up in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Kristen married her husband in college at ORU. Her career has been varied, but always revolving around art in some way. She was a certified teacher (teaching junior high art and high school biology) and she has been the Creative Director at a successful marketing firm. Currently, she freelances graphic design and illustration as she continues to write books. She is a nerd to the core and enjoys scifi books and movies, coffee and tea, knitting, reading, drawing, and painting. Kriste

Being a professional artist for the past 16+ years, has given me the experience in knowing how to jump start my creative engine. Because clients don't have time to wait on my muse, I've learned to make it happen. I apply that knowledge to being a writer. When it's time to sit down and write, I write. For those who struggle with writer's block, I suggest the following tips:
1. get out of your office. Go do something else. Something entirely different, unrelated. Play a game, go for a walk, hang upside down, whatever you can do to get your brain going a different direction.
2. Do something fun. If it's all work and no play, your muse is definitely on vacation!
3. Do something different than your normal routine. Have ice cream or spaghetti for breakfast!
4. Sleep. Rest does wonders for the overworked brain.
5. ... I could actually keep going, but I'd give away a blog post on here! Check out my blog where I'll be writing in 2016 about how to jumpstart your creative side.(less)

There are no limits, and anything can happen. I especially love unexpected surprises in a story. Sometimes I even surprise myself, and I'm the one writing it!(less)

I think the concept sprang out of where I wanted to end up. (which I'm not telling because it would spoil everything). I knew what I wanted the overall theme / ending to be, and worked out how to get there. What would need to be in place to end that See Full Answer
