Kristal Hollis grew up in a small, Florida town amid cane fields and orange groves. Books fed her imagination, providing adventurous portals to ancient civilizations, medieval fiefdoms, alternate realities and futuristic worlds. Then, a friend gave her Johanna Lindsey's FIRES IN WINTER, a historical romance which ignited a life-long love affair with romantic fiction.
When a family medical situation required her to take a work sabbatical, she began penning small town paranormal romances as an escape from the real-life drama. Even though the crisis passed, her passion for writing continues.
A 2015 Golden Heart® finalist, she sold her qualifying manuscript to Harlequin Nocturne. Retitled AWAKENED BY THE WOLF, her first book debuted in June 2016 and launched the Wahyas of Walker's Run series.
Currently, Kristal lives with her husband and two rescued dogs at the edge of the enchanted forest that inspires her stories.
