About the Author


Krista lives with her husband, four girls, and a big yellow lab named Séamus. When she’s not teaching at her local elementary school, she can be found spending time with her kids, crafting, or traveling to Ireland to visit family. Krista started telling stories to her twin girls as she drove them around during the day and rocked them to sleep at night. She quickly started to dream up all kinds of stories from their day-to-day life and finally decided to turn those stories into real books!

A little more about how I got started...

Writing a children’s book has been a dream of mine for many years. As an elementary school teacher and a mother of four, I’ve read hundreds of children’s books. I enjoy embarking on the journey that each book has to offer. I remember thinking about writing a children’s book as a new teacher nearly 20 years ago. At that time I was just starting my career in education, so writing a book was not at the forefront of my mind. Fast-forward several years later, and after 3 kids, I began to think of the many day-to-day things we did with our children that inspired me to take my dream as a children’s book author seriously. When I expressed my interest to a family friend, he said “Write it!” with enthusiasm.
