Kristen Strassel writes heroes you want to spend the night with. Spend the night reading…what did you think she meant? She started reading paranormal and romance when her mom realized the spookier and spicier the book, the more likely she was to devour it. Now she creates the characters and worlds she always wanted to read about. Kristen also works as a makeup artist for film and television and hopes to someday be on the set of her own movie. She lives outside Boston but her suitcase is always ready for her next adventure.
