Well, as you may have guessed, my name is indeed Kristen Joy Wilks. I live in the beautiful Cascade Mountains at Camas Meadows Bible Camp with my camp director husband, three fierce sons, and a large and slobbery Newfoundland dog. I have blow-dried a chicken, fought epic Nerf battles instead of washing dishes, transported a gallon bag of cooked bacon inside my purse, discovered a smuggled gardener snake in my sons’ bubble bath, and searched the house for a highly poisonous newt that was rescued from the cold to promptly escape in the kitchen. My stories and articles have appeared in Nature Friend, Clubhouse, Thriving Family, Splickety, Spark, and Havok Magazines. I write romantic comedies for Pelican Book Group, including Copenhagen Cozenage, The Volk Advent, Athens Ambuscade, Spider Gap and Yellowstone Yondering. I love to write about the humor and grace that can be found amidst the detritus of life. Much like the shiny quarter one member of our household swallowed and then found in the pot five days later. If God is good enough to grant us these gems, I figure that someone should be putting them to the page. I can be found snapping photos around the camp, tucked under a tattered quilt in an overstuffed chair at 4:00 am writing a wide variety of implausible tales, or at www.kristenjoywilks.com. If you would rather enjoy pictures of charging bison, Newfoundland dogs, and attacking squid then by all means visit my “What I’m Writing About” board on Pinterest https://www.pinterest.com/kristenjwilks7/what-im-writing-about/
In case you are wondering just how beautiful the Cascade Mountains are, I will include photographic evidence below.
