Kirstin has a BA in English from Vassar College and an MFA in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University where she is also an academic and personal counselor. She lives in San Francisco with her husband and one-year-old son.
Although I began as a short-story writer, my work has evolved into what I now call my “illustrated stories.” These stories contain a revolving cast of existential, furry creatures, struggling with the timeless topics of what it means to be a good friend, how to cope with one’s imperfections, and how to lead a life well-lived.
After completing my MFA in Creative Writing and struggling for several years to eek out worthy sentences, I began drawing pictures again. Somehow, adding this visual component rekindled my creative spirit and returned me to a more natural place as a writer.
I hope you will enjoy my books!
