Welcome to Adventure!
Having just published my first book, I am excited to share it with you, relieved to be finished, and raring to get started on the continuation of the story! As an independent outdoors woman, a romantic, and an adventurer, my favorite stories always combine a few key elements: a strong woman, a strong man, Mother Nature offering up challenges as only she can, and multiple elements of danger, risk, and reward. Stories that manage to top all of that off with philosophical inquisition, emotional growth, and moral dilemma, always keep me reading late into the night, and leave me wishing for more pages at the end of the story.
I hope to capture that magic recipe for you with the Storm Series. In Storm Shadow, I introduce our intrepid cast: the scientist with a nose for trouble, the humble humanitarian with a dark past, the irrepressible police detective with a chip on her shoulder, and the bad boy with a secret. Storm Shadow takes us from the Pacific coast of Alaska, California, and Mexico to the United Kingdom on a crusade to save whales and stop an evil criminal bent on destruction.
Storm Rising will pick up our survivors and throw them into the cauldron with even more deadly criminals, leading them on a harrowing chase across England, Ireland, and Scotland. It promises to raise the stakes and heat things up a whole new level.
If you found your way to my blog, then you must be a fellow adventurer—we come in many splendid forms—and I’m glad you’re here! Whether you seek eye-opening sneak peeks into the world and characters of the Storm Series, or you long for the thrill of writing and editing your own book, or you crave inspiration and easy ways to explore and protect our beautiful environment, you will find it all right here in my blog.
My goal as a writer is to connect and impassion people through shared interests, to excite and encourage creative flow, and to empower individuals and communities. To achieve my goals, I will share adventures and experiences along my journey by nourishing three different rivers of discourse:
- Storm Sneaks—these posts will include unpublished bonus material, music recommendations that inspired me while writing scenes and characters, tantalizing peeks into coming books, and photos of locations I am researching as I write.
- WriteIT! with Gaea Press—these posts will include anecdotes about my writing process, as well as tips and techniques for writing, editing, and publishing your work.
- TEAM Gaea—these posts will champion the people, non-profits, issues, and sources of inspiration for us all to become Tenacious Environmental Adventure Members (TEAMs) for the health and protection of Mama Gaea and all of her beautiful, diverse creatures. I will spotlight ocean and wildlife conservation, because these are dearest to my heart, and will emphasize pollution prevention and easy things you can do, wherever you are, at any age, to make a difference in your own life and community.
Thank you for joining me. I hope you subscribe to my blog!
Happy adventuring! Kris
