Kristen grew up playing video games thanks to the introduction by her uncles who were big gamers themselves. She started with the Final Fantasy series, Warcraft 2 and Breath of Fire 3, and from there it was a downward spiral into the world of gaming that she has never been able to escape from. This gateway nerd drug landed her in the anime scene, fanfiction writing and a plethora of other genres and mediums (writing, reading and cosplay.) She is currently working toward her major of Early Childhood Education in sunny Central Oregon. Besides her career goals, she has a personal dream of petting every single dog she meets. She likes short walks on the beach, Thai Iced Tea and rice.
