Kris Atkins, MFA knows that putting “MFA” behind her name is somewhat pretentious (as is writing about oneself in third person), but she wants to be kind of a big deal. After all, her home already smells of rich mahogany and leather-bound books, so she’s halfway there.*
Kris likes words a lot, as well as magic and great characters. So she combines all three and writes fantasy stories for young adults, new adults, and one day maybe even old adults.** She received her MFA in Creative Writing from Converse College in Spartanburg, South Carolina. In addition to writing, she blogs about living with bipolar disorder and is passionate about mental illness awareness. She loves being outside when the sun is shining, chasing her crazy shiba inus, pretending she’s an interior designer, and drinking absurd amounts of Diet Dr. Pepper. Denver, the second best city in the world***, is her home.
