MisCon 32 Panel Volunteer

Krista writes mostly Fantasy, in novel-length and short fiction. She has been a finalist in several contests (SiWC, PNWA, Colorado Gold), and won a couple of them (Pulp Literature, Fraser Valley Writers). Her work is published in Pulp Literature magazine and Electric Spec, with another one coming out in the 49th Parallels anthology later this year. Her passion for reading aloud has recently taken her into the realm of audiobook narration. She is an actor, and sings jazz in both a big band and a duo. Besides writing, a favourite pastime is working as Musical Director for high school shows (In the Heights, Les Mis, Anything Goes, etc). She writes in a closet in Port Coquitlam, BC.
