I am the author of the DAUGHTERS OF THE SEA series, which includes FORSAKEN, AWAKEN, CHOSEN, HEARKEN, PROVEN (2014).I love all books, but really enjoy writing young adult, paranormal romances.

“There was no time for chit-chat when there were chocolate chip pancakes to be eaten.”
Kristen Day, Forsaken

“I make you nervous,” he whispered. It wasn’t a question, but a statement. The smirk on his face told me he knew it was true. - Finn (Forsaken)”

“I'm seriously beginning to worry about you guys," Willow sighed from the arm chair and looked up from her laptop with discord, "Being asked out in the middle of a hurricane is not romantic. It's totally reckless and irresponsible."
"And totally hot," added Carmen.”

“I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in my life. And I am horribly limited.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

Kristen Day Once upon a time there was an author who lived in a big white castle up on a big white mountain top. She wanted to scream out her BIG announcement to world below!! ...but she couldn't. An evil witch named Kristenia demanded she wait a fortnight. If she failed to keep the secret she would be turned into a volkswagon bug! So she settled into her big white castle on the big white mountain top with a big mug of hot white chocolate topped with big white marshmallows and decided to re-read every paranormal romance ever written. The fortnight came and went as she stood at her balcony, lifted her arms, and proclaimed.......! And she lived happily ever after. The End.

Lucinda Dear Kristen,
I would like to thank you so much for being my friend here on GoodReads, which is a fantastic site where one is able to converse with so many likeminded people including readers and writers, authors and book bloggers. I am a huge fan of JK Rowling, Stephanie Meyer's, Lauren Kate and many other authors whom you admire as well as loving YA and fantasy fiction. I hence look forward to many interesting future book discussions with you.
Kind Regards
