Krista Holle has been passionate about writing since she was nine years old.  As ‘one sick cookie’, she might call it an obsession. Her brand is historical, sometimes magical, with a mandatory romantic twist. She is the author of The Lure of Shapinsay, finalist for the Reader’s Choice award in the paranormal romance category. She lives in Richmond, Virginia in a nearly empty nest with her adoring husband and a drooly Great Dane. When she’s not writing, she is backpacking sections of the Appalachian Trail. She is currently seeking agent representation.
