A poet at heart, Kristine is author of New and Young Adult Contemporary Romance that bites like a junkyard dog.

some were better than others but every story had at least 1 interesting aspect or unique facet. I especially liked the ones featuring magic and supernatural. I want to see this as a graphic novel collection featuring artists with disabilities
