Growing up in a family that had a passion for writing and drawing, Kirsten was influenced by generation after generation of writers and artists. She has shared these passions since childhood, but did not self-publish her first book, REARRANGED, until her late twenties. She was moved to share her work after going through loss, grief and healing. In writing and illustrating, she experienced grace and light after loss. REARRANGED was the winner of Indies Today’s 2022 Best Poetry Award. Her second book, I Love You From Heaven, is about angel children in Heaven, and offers beautiful healing to families navigating the loss of a pregnancy/child. Kirsten continues to illustrate and write more children’s books, and chooses topics that are dear to her heart. When not writing, Kirsten can be found spending time with her husband and two children. She is active in the pursuit to find wholeness and soaking up as much family time as she can, whether that be at their family cabins or snuggled up with a blanket and a good book at home with her kids. She believes in sharing hope for others who may be struggling, and has a captivating vulnerability to her work.
Kirsten’s goal is for the isolation that surrounds the stigmas on grief and healing to end. She wants people to know they have a voice, and in sharing it they bring light and hope to others. She brings her own voice to light in volunteering in her community for child loss support, interviews on podcasts for loss, and by writing about various topics that help make the world more empathetic. Kirsten loves to hear from her readers, and is empowered to keep writing to help people connect when they feel alone.
