Kristen McQuinn is a single mother by choice (yay, modern medical science!), a medievalist through study (medieval holy women rock), and a geek by basic nature (Star Trek, anyone?). She will read just about anything you hand to her, including the encyclopedia, but she especially digs sci-fi/fantasy, historical fiction, magical realism, and mysteries. She teaches English and World Mythology at the college level and wants to write novels when she grows up. She also suspects that instead of blood, there is an odd mix of tea and wine flowing through her veins. Her day job plus the blood/tea/wine mix helps her find sprezzatura in the stress of single parenting, and allows her to sometimes update her blog at Her Grace’s Library once in a while.
