Kristina Mathews doesn't remember a time when she didn't have a book in her hand. Or in her head. But it wasn't until she turned forty that she confessed the reason the laundry never made it out of the dryer was because she was busy writing.

While she resigned from teaching with the arrival of her second son, she's remained an educator in some form. As a volunteer, parent club member or para educator, she finds the most satisfaction working with emergent and developing readers, helping foster confidence and a lifelong love of books.

Kristina lives in Northern California with her husband of more than twenty years, two sons and a black lab. A veteran road tripper, amateur renovator and sports fanatic. She hopes to one day travel all 3,073 mil

By reading, I can travel back in time while enjoying my air conditioning and modern plumbing. I can enjoy a baseball game in the dead of winter or cool off on the slopes when it's 100 degrees outside. I can enjoy the excitement of the big city without the hassles of traffic. And I can fall in love over and over again without losing my husband. (less)

Test Driving The Empty Nest

[image error]I recently celebrated my 25th wedding anniversary. We pulled out the photo album, stopped by the winery where we held our reception, and took a little walk down memory lane. We were just a couple of kids with our whole future ahead of us.


And that future included kids. Two boys kept us on our toes for many years. Little League games, swimming lessons, road trips, and field trips kep...

Starting with the last review I left for a book in this series, I'm back to complimenting the author on how well she fleshes out her characters. Cause I REALLY didn't like this kid. He was trying to hurt my boys and their business. I was cuing..." Read more of this review »
