Coffee-Sized Stories and TeaTime Tales
Coffee brewing? Teapot Whistling?
Time to sit a spell and let your thoughts wander off into a good story. Some sweet romance for an afternoon Cozy Break. One for that late at night Cozy Horror. A cup of Chamomile, perhaps? And one tender memoir about the first day of rain on The Little Pan gold mine.
All long enough to fill that special time set aside just for you.
About Krista Lynn (Fresno, California Author)
Krista Lynn is a late-comer to the author’s world with a long academic career in earth sciences in her wake instead of years of fiction writing. But, wind has filled all the sails this year, with the release of Blood Stones, the first book in the Haunted Canyon Series.
It’s no mystery why Krista writes about the high desert of Arizona. She grew up on a gold mine about 60 miles north of Phoenix. The closest neighbor was 6 miles or so down the Agua Fria River, or another 20 miles by dirt road. To say it was a gold mine is technically correct, but very little gold was ever mined. It did, however, keep gas in the jeep and food on the table. The real treasure of this placer gold-mining venture was the lasting impressions of living wild on the desert with her brothers, and a menagerie of dogs, goats, and donkeys. And experiencing the magic and spirit of a rugged, isolated landscape where mysteries are carried on the wind, and whispered in your sleep. Years later, these experiences are the multi-colored threads woven into her series of romantic supernatural suspense set in the high desert of Arizona.
She taught physical geography and GIS courses at CSUF and Fresno City College before taking an Academic Coordinator for GIS Technologies at UC Davis Coorperative Extension where she built a GIS program to assist agricultural research.
She now enjoys the full-time writing life in California with her husband and a menagerie of dogs, goats and one spoiled horse.
