Kris has lived in 10 states and one foreign country. She started school in Saudi Arabia and lived in an American camp there for six years. Family vacations took her around the world, from African safaris to Austrian ski trips to Grandpa's farm in Nebraska. This early exposure to other people and cultures may be the seed of her life as a writer, as she learned to observe, understand, and respect people of all types.
As an adult, she continued traveling the world, making trips to Wales, Turkey, Australia, and other destinations. Life eventually took her to New Mexico, where she has lived since 2002. She works from home office with a view of the beautiful New Mexican landscape and the pleasant distraction of birds, lizards, and occasionally a fox parading past her window.
New Mexico's sunshine and temperate weather let her hike year-round in the mountains, deserts, and canyons. She also enjoys rock climbing, which requires a challenging combination of strength, balance, and technique.
