Debra Kristi writes deep-point-of-view YA (young adult) fiction that will drop you in the middle of the drama and have you experience the adventure as if you are part of the story.
Award winning and USA Today Bestselling Author Debra Kristi writes addicting young adult fantasy, urban fantasy, and paranormal adventures. Born and raised a Southern California girl, she still resides in the sunny state with her husband, two kids, and several schizophrenic cats.
Unlike many of the characters in the stories she writes, Debra is not immortal, and her only superpower is letting the dishes and laundry pile up. When not busy drumming away at the keyboard spinning new tales, Debra is hanging out creating priceless memories with her family, geeking out to science fiction and fantasy television, and tossing around movie quotes.
- Debra’s first car was a 1962 Buick Skylark. The car had been in the family since ’62 and had sat, unused in a garage for many years before becoming hers. Not only would the car not run, but the hood wouldn’t open. Together with her father and uncle, Debra dismantled the engine, cleaned the individual parts, put it back together, and got that car running.
- Today, that Buick Skylark sits comfortably in Debra’s garage. At one point, Debra actually owned three Skylarks (Slightly obsessive, maybe? *snicker*).
- When she was four-years-old, Debra decided to explore her neighbor’s backyard. She ended up getting bitten by a monkey. A monkey! In the neighbor’s yard!
- Debra believes in ghosts (the energy of those who have moved on). She saw her first ghost when she was five-years-old; an old man who had died in the house her parents had just bought.
- On a dare, Debra once (properly) burned her finger on a car’s backseat cigarette lighter.
