Crystal is a tea-drinking, book-hoarding, history nerd. Her award-winning stories are filled with danger, love, history, and hope.
Crystal is a tea-drinking, book-hoarding, history nerd. Her parents had no idea what a monster they were creating when they took her to her first history museum. From that moment on she has researched and crafted stories filled with danger, love, history, and hope. She was a finalist for the 2019 RWA Golden Heart Award, a semi-finalist for the 2019 ACFW Genesis Award, and the 2018 winner of the RWA Touched By Love Award. Currently, she lives in the Cincinnati area with her husband, two boys, in-laws, rat-dog, and a twenty-six year old frog.
Crystal spent her childhood hiding in a book or going on wild adventures across the country with her family. No matter where she went, stories filled her mind. Every history museum was ripe with potential, every shadow lurked with danger, and always a hero would emerge to save the day. Or least an imaginative girl from a long, boring car ride.
While most people outgrew imaginary friends, Crystal’s characters took on lives of their own and spilled onto the page. By the end of eighth grade, she’d written a 73,000 word novel. She’d written five novels nearly double that length by the end of grad school, all of which are forever hidden within a locked drawer.
It’s her husband’s fault she’s on a publishing journey. All because he sent her to writing conference for her birthday. Since then she’s studied writing craft, fine-tuned her writing, and been a finalist in national level contests.
When not writing or studying, Crystal can be found playing board games with her husband and boys, caregiving for loved ones, traveling with her extended family, hiding in a book, or drinking copious amounts of hot tea.
