Kristen Hogrefe is a multi-published novelist who finds that numbers are better left to “math people” and directions, to her GPS. Instead, she focuses on connecting with the readers behind the numbers and pursuing her God-given calling—even when the journey involves unexpected twists.
Her own publishing path certainly has. She navigated the self-publishing world, began building websites and troubleshooting social media, and then attended her first writer’s conference at FCWC. After self-publishing her first trilogy, she signed with Write Integrity Press in 2016 for a young adult dystopian trilogy. The Revisionary released in June 2017, and its planned sequel, The Revolutionary, is scheduled to launch spring of 2018.
Kristen enjoys helping other writers share their stories. She serves as a mentor and president for Word Weavers International and teaches on the faculty at Serious Writer Academy. She also teaches English for Alpha Omega Academy and has been published with Splickety Publishing Group and on various blogs. You can find Kristen outdoors in the Florida sunshine or online at KristenHogrefe.com where she challenges young adults and the young at heart to think truthfully and live daringly.
