Kristen, I just wanted to thank you for your book "The Song of Copper Creek." I have written a book myself and I often wish my readers would tell me more about their experience so I felt I should do that here for you. I'm going through a time of personal loss and pain from separating and divorcing 1-1/2 years ago. In picking up your book I needed an escape from my troubles and in addition it helped me to heal some. I was really happy your book didn't finish in a neat little bow where she meets a new guy and all her problems are gone as real life doesn't always work out that way. It helped me to understand my ex-wife more and to let her deal with her pain in her own time table. It also helped me to see that we can live a different life than expected and find happiness in friendship, service and church. Anyway I just wanted to let you know that the story you've told did make a difference for me. (By the way you're "contact me" email link is broken.)

Thank you for the kind words. Yes, when you stop to think of your own family living in those times, it makes it that much more alive to you. If you liked that one, you might want to try my book Heart's Journey, which is set in about the same time and place. Thanks again! Kristen

Hi Kristen:
I just finished reading The Governess . . . and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was light and fresh. Your description helped the reader through each scene. My Granddad was born in 1869 and I could just imagine him living through that era. Cheers, Jacquie

Kristen was a former French student of mine some years ago and showed huge potential and achievement in my classes. She has remained one of the few of thousands who still remembers me and visits whenever she's in Utah. Her books all are such a joy to read, completely devoid of gratuitous sex, violence, and obscenities. Garden Plot shows that she has a flair for a good crime/mystery-type novel, as good or better than any Agatha Kristy I have ever read. Reading her novels is like watching a good movie w/out any of the dialog/music/back ground cacaphony so characteristic of movie fare of the past few decades.
