Informazioni sull'autore

A southern California native transplanted to the soggy Pacific Northwest, Kristine Lowder specializes in what one wag dubbed “excruciatingly insightful prose.” When attempting to avoid being excruciating or insightful—which is most of the time—Kristine hikes, reads voraciously, enjoys exploring the Cascades and will do almost anything to avoid scrubbing the bathtub.

About the Author


Whenever I'm sitting down - which isn't often - I feel compelled to be reading something. Anything. The newspaper. The back of a cereal box. War and Peace. (Well okay, maybe not Tolstoy, but you get my drift. More on this later.)

What do you look for when you roam a bookstore or library? What makes a writer an author? How does a writer snag your attention, grab you by the scruff of the neck and shake you till your teeth rattle?

We're going to take a look at some potential answers from a writer's perspective. What follows is based on a collection of posts from my blog, Roads Diverged, that are designed to move you along as a writer, reader, or blogger. Or all of the above. Each chapter approaches the craft from a different perspective and concludes with a question or two. These are included to help you break through walls of yeah, but or I can't or don't know where to start, etc.
