Attention aspiring authors! The Battle to Become an Author: When Great Expectations Go Awry is a non-fiction e-booklet (short, sweet, and to the point) written to emphathize with, inspire, and offer ways of coping for authors who are attempting to get published, or are already published and struggling to get known. Just writing this was therapeutic!
"This novel of good Vs evil brings a rawness to the YA industry that has yet to be seen in many other novels I have read this year... This author's talent shines though the entire book..." --Kelly at YA Book Reads
"Titled, The Prophecies, this fun, quick-paced novel catches a ride along with Lavida Mors – a 15-year-old girl who is forced to attend a private school and board at an enormous mansion of which only a handful of people live... With the discovery of a secret tunnel, she is plunged into an enthralling adventure filled with oddities rivaled mostly in Guillermo del Toro films."
--Ashley Knight, author of The Fins Trilogy.
"An amazing adventure to a unique and mysterious subterranean world." --Jeremy Robinson, bestselling author of Raising The Past and Antarktos Rising
"A standing ovation for Kristina Schram's new book... The vivid descriptions and creative characters all but leap off the page... Three thumbs up and that's one more than I have." --Donna Marie Waters ~ Author of The Gnome Chronicles: Bracken and the Crystal Cave & The Dragons of Middle Earth
"Anaedor's Lavida Mors (the main character) has more depth and humor than H[arry] P[otter] ever did and the world she discovers underground is both fascinating and uniquely described." --SV Young

Mischief, Mystery, and Magic
My PARANORMAL GOTHIC ROMANCE SERIES captures all that I like best about romances, paranormal activity, and Gothic darkness. Think…DREAMY, SPOOKY LOVE.
-I SHALL RETURN features Lily MacKenzie, a feisty journalist who travels to Scotland to track down her roots and solve a mystery that’s been haunting her for far too long.
-THE WRATH stars Evalina Filmore, a young woman who journeys to England on an adventure, where she discovers much more than she bargained for.
My FOREST IMMORTAL SAGA TRILOGY is the fantastical story of three boys, a dark forest, and a secret. Perfect for ages 10 and up. Think…ADVENTUROUS.
My ANAEDOR FANTASY SERIES is about a hidden world filled with magic, adventure, and strange creatures galore. The books are aimed at ages 10 and up. Think Harry Potter and Narnia come together. Think…MAGICAL.
My PANDORA BELFRY ADVENTURES SERIES is about a 14-year-old girl who has lived her whole life in an insane asylum. You will encounter the macabre, the strange, the unique, and the spirited. Think…QUIRKY.
Feel free to wander around my site – though in doing so, be prepared to encounter various forms of mischief, mystery, and magic! Because without these elements, life is just too boring.

To read is my creed. It is indeed. To plant the seed, I teach others to read. A good deed. A societal need. This, I plead…learn to read! #Read
