As a child, Kristi Cook took her nose out of a book only long enough to take a ballet class (or five) each week. Not much has changed since then, except she’s added motherhood to the mix and enjoys penning her own novels as much as reading everybody else’s. A transplanted southern gal, Kristi lives in New York City with her husband and two daughters.

Author's Own Message ( ie when they talk about themselves :P)
My name is Kristi, and I’m addicted to reading. There, I’ve admitted it! But seriously, I read a lot. As in, all the time. Since I was a child, I’ve always had my nose in a book. And when I’m not actually reading, I’m frequently thinking about a book I’ve read. As a kid, that’s how I went to sleep each night—thinking up new adventures for my favorite characters, or making up alternate endings for my favorite books. When I was twelve, I actually took a spiral notebook and pen and started writing the first few chapters of a sequel to Gone With the Wind. So I guess you could say I started off writing fan-fiction. Sort of.
It was an easy leap to writing my own original stories, but I didn’t have the courage (or the time, really) to try until I was grown, with two small kids toddling around and a lot of hours to fill. When I’m not writing, I’m still reading voraciously (on average maybe four or five books a week, mostly YA these days) or watching movies (I love to re-watch my favorites, over and over again!). I also like to take ballet classes, ice skate, and go to the theater (I live in New York City, so the theater’s good!).
But mostly, my head is usually in a book, both literally and figuratively—either one of my own, or someone else’s. And I like it that way!
Annnnnd that's a take! So now it's my turn to hog the spotlight! Thank-you very very very much Kristi for that interesting post AND I love your debutante dress, putting aside Miley Cyrus's current "scandal" I still think she has good taste :) So anyway guys, that's it for today BUT come back tomorrow because there just might be a giveaway *winks*
