USA Today bestselling and Award-Winning, Kristin D. Van Risseghem grew up in a small town along the Mississippi River. Currently, Kristin lives in Minnesota with her husband and two Calico cats. She also loves attending book clubs, going shopping, and hanging out with friends. She has come to realize that she absolutely has an addiction to purses and shoes.

Thank you for the question. Man, I have to think on that and go way back. I think my first book was "Where the Sidewalk Ends". Remember that one? But the first story had to be Laura Ingell's Wilder series. Loved the books and of course the TV show (I still watch them when I come across them).

Back then I wasn't dreaming of being a writer, I read to read. But now that I am a writer (and still a reader), I'm sure everything influenced me. I bet reading a ton impacts me still and probably has something to do the creative juices. Could I pinpoint exactly? I doubt it.(less)

“Oh, Moon, upon me shine-
Give back his life, instead take mine.
Send back his heart, return his breath.
Please release him from his death.
Give back his eyes, bring back his voice.
I willingly have made this choice.
Hand back his plans, restore his mind,
I willingly grant you mine.
Oh, Moon, Oh, Stars, upon me glow-
Tell the river to let go.”
Ann M. Noser from HOW TO DATE DEAD GUYS
