Kristin L. Stamper is a speculative fiction author. Her love of storytelling began as a child playing pretend in the backyard. Once society had successfully pressured her into knocking that off, writing became her new creative outlet. After high school, she spent seven years as an Information Systems Technician in the US Navy, gaining experience in computers and robotics. When not writing, she is studying to become a teacher and is a full-time child-wrangler (also known as a mother).
