Kristi Garrett discovered the wonder of reading while growing up without a TV in Athens. When the stacks of Nancy Drew and Bobbsey Twins volumes she’d read piled up, she open a used bookstore at the American Club pool, launching a lifetime of serial entrepreneurism. Reading led naturally enough into writing, and by middle school she was publishing in the school creative writing journal. The distractions of marrying young delayed a true writing career, but eventually she got a journalism degree in an attempt to make an honest living. She’s written for the Los Angeles Times and Sacramento Bee newspapers, freelanced for several magazines, and has been a staff writer for the California School Boards Association and California State University, Sacramento. She’s now working on her latest novel, Robert’s Rules.
