A big fan of hats for every occasion, Kristine calls this her "Hat of Silliness"

Novelist and picture book author Kristine Franklin grew up in Washington state, lived in Central America and South America, and now resides in Minnesota. A very popular speaker with both boys and girls, she was the first author chosen to speak to the Guys Read book clubs in Hennepin County, Minnesota. Her fun-loving sense-of-humor is a big hit with teachers and students alike.

Whether Kris is talking about developing life-like characters, a page-turning plot, researching historical facts, or writing a critique paper, she has a kind and positive way of connecting with children and adults.
