Who are you and where did you come from?
I'm Kristin Nador and I'm a writer who first started writing in middle and high school in my hometown of St. Louis, Missouri. After being a military spouse and homeschooling mom to three kids, I started following my dream to write again after I became an empty nester. I've lived in Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and California before settling in Georgetown, Kentucky. I'm working on a contemporary suspense novel and a generational historical based on the lives of my German immigrant ancestors.

Where do you want to be in 10 years?
I want to be a published author writing my latest book at my summer beach house. Oysters on the half shell may be involved.

What is the biggest mistake you've made in your life?
The biggest mistake I ever made was allowing someone else to convince me that my ideas and feelings were worthless. When I discovered this was a lie, I became me and never looked back.

What would you do for a Klondike bar?
I might dance on a table. I might sing 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. If it was the Heath Bar flavor, I might do both.
