Krista’s first book is titled I Know You’re Here. After the sudden loss of her husband in 2014, she began capturing photos of special moments in time when she felt his presence. Little did she know that those photos would be transformed into a book. It is her hope that her moments in time will help the reader with their own transition to a new life. I Know You’re Here has won two awards, and Krista has also written a companion journal.
Krista’s 26 years of teaching, mostly at the middle school level, provided the foundation for her second book. YAB Helps You Navigate Middle School is a comic-style transition guide for students who are making the transition to middle school. YAB is an imaginary creature who lives in the prefrontal cortex and reminds students to Y: Be yourself, A: Ask questions and B: Breathe. YAB has won three awards.
When she’s not writing, Krista enjoys spending time with her two sons and her faithful Golden Retriever, Josie. She enjoys photography, painting, and quilting as well as biking and spending time outside.
