|Kristen Britain grew up in the Fingerlakes region of New York State, where she started her first novel – an undersea fantasy featuring herself and her friends – at the age of nine. She published her first book, a cartoon collection called Horses and Horsepeople, at the age of thirteen.|
After completing her degree in film production at Ithaca College in 1987 she made the logical (?!) leap from cinema to the National Park Service. Her job as a park ranger has enabled her to work in a variety of natural and historical settings, from 300 feet below the surface of the Earth to the Continental Divide; and from the textile mills of the American Industrial Revolution to the homes of Americans who changed the course of history.
Currently she lives in a log cabin in Maine where she pursues interests in writing, reading, guitar playing and cartoon illustration, supervised by her two cats. She enjoys exploring the magical places around her and can often be found paddling a canoe in stillwater, ambling through the woods to mountain summits, or sitting along the rocky shore listening, watching, and daydreaming. This is her fantasy, at least.
