Writer Bio

Crystal is an award-winning public radio producer, freelance writer, and, in recent years, speculative fiction writer. She's sold a few short stories, has many more on the submission circuit, and is working on a novel about witches and family and Appalachian folk magic. She also dodges mosquitos while gardening; cares for her husband, four ghost cats and three rescued cats; or indulges in her love for good conversation and good mead. Or tea. Or tequila. Or scotch. Not necessarily in that order.

Writing Style

I'm still figuring this one out. I have too much fun playing with different styles.

Writing Goal

I'd like to get another ten chapters written on the novel, currently titled Seven For A Secret. This should get me to the final third of the book and on track to complete it by the end of the summer!

Fundraising Goal


writing goal:
10 chapters written
