Hey, y’all!

Welcome to my space! Grab a cup of coffee, tea, or whatever floats your boat and explore a bit. As a kid, I loved to write stories about magical lands or mark major life experiences with poetry, but making it a career was always a dream without substance.

Four years ago, someone challenged me to step out of my comfort zone and begin writing things that matter. So I started this scary, exhilarating journey. As this adventure moves forward, my hope is that you will meet characters with big dreams, adventurous spirits, and bold hearts, beginning with the characters in Shaken.

I believe the written word is powerful. I believe it has the ability to change lives and culture. And I believe every person has a story, no matter how glamorous, or controversial, or messy, or beautiful, or complicated, or terrible. I believe the Lord wants to use your story and mine to change lives.

So keep sipping that drink, get cozy in that chair, and share your story with me. As you browse these pages, I hope you will get excited about Shaken and the coming books, read what the Lord is teaching me, and meet others who have a passion to change the world. Ultimately, I pray you see the heart of the God who made you.

Connect with me, journey with me, and let’s use stories to make a difference in our culture and in people’s lives.

Making Him known,

Kariss
