Pitch Wars #PimpMyBio

20170611_201444 (1)

I’m Kristy, a YA author, mom, middle school librarian, and former middle school counselor. I live in Virginia with my husband, toddler, 3 dogs, and 2 cats!


I’ve written a YA trilogy, JADED, HUNTED, and BLINDED, and a short story collection, EVEN IN DEATH. I self-published these but hope to publish the traditional way with my YA Contemporary novel, LUCY COUNTING STARS. It’s about a 16-year-old girl whose small town is rocked by artist teen suicides. Lucy is also an artist suffering from OCD and ends up committed to a mental hospital.

I’m participating in #PitchWars because I had a great time participating in #PitchMad, where I met an amazing, supportive critique group. Shout out to Em, Amy, Cara, Mac, Todd, Haley, and Bridgette!
