Kristina Riggle lives in West Michigan, where she writes character-driven novels about complex personal dynamics. Her debut novel, Real Life & Liars, was a Target "Breakout" pick and a "Great Lakes, Great Reads" selection by the Great Lakes Independent Booksellers Association. Her latest novel, Vivian in Red, is a story of 1930s Broadway and today about a lyricist, the clouded history of his most famous song, and the woman who inspired it.

Kristina has published short stories in the Cimarron Review, Literary Mama, Espresso Fiction, and elsewhere, and is a former co-editor for fiction at Literary Mama. As well as writing, she enjoys reading, yoga, dabbling in (very) amateur musical theatre, and spending lots of time with her husband, two kids

Why I wrote HOPE OUT LOUD

Why did I write a novella sequel to The Life You've Imagined?

Because I've missed you. I've missed you greatly, dear readers.

For various reasons (a topic for another day) it's been a little while since The Whole Golden World, and it will be a while yet before I have another novel to share with you.

“We all have the best laid plans for our children, and they go and ruin it all by growing up any way they want to. What the hell was it all for, then? (Real Life and Liars)”
Kristina Riggle

“I hope someday she meets just the right man and has babies - a whole passel of babies, more than I could have - so she understands how it kills me now that she won't let me hug her when she's in obvious distress. (The Life You've Imagined)”
Kristina Riggle

“Love is hard to find and easy to lose, same as anything small and precious.”
Kristina Riggle, The Whole Golden World

Shawn Wickersheim Hey Kristina, I hope the rest of your book signing tour went well after you left Woodstock. My wife is almost done with "Keepsake" and she really has enjoyed it a lot.

Take care,
Shawn
