Kristyn Van Cleave is a freelance writer, poet, and fantasy novelist. Although only a junior in high school, she has already published her first fantasy novel that is to be part of a trilogy. Kristyn is a member of Blurb's Coffee and Quill Society and has written for National Novel Writing Month. Her next project is the second novel in her Dreambreath trilogy, which she plans on writing within the upcoming NaNoWriMo in November. When Kristyn is not writing, she enjoys dancing, choreographing, singing, playing the French horn, working with schoolchildren, and playing with her Indian ring-necked parakeet Marcy.
