About the Author

Official Bio

If Kristen Brand could have any superpower, she’d want telekinesis so she wouldn’t have to move from her computer to pour a new cup of tea. She lives in Florida with her husband, and her hobbies include reading comic books and desperately trying to keep the plants in her garden alive. An author of fantasy and superhero fiction, she writes stories with fire-forged friends, explosive fight scenes, and kissing.

More About Me

Kristen Profile Picture
Icon by Heckosart

I wrote my first novel in high school. It was about a nerdy teenage boy who got sucked into a fantasy world and had to gather four magical swords to defeat an evil sorcerer. There were elves involved.

It was awful.

Then I wrote my next book, an epic fantasy with flying ships and floating kingdoms. It was pretty awful, too. As I wrote novel after novel, the quality of my writing gradually progressed from “awful” to just “bad,” then to “meh,” and eventually to “halfway decent.” By the time I wrote Hero Status, I’d put in several years and hundreds of thousands of words of practice to finally reach “good.”

I love stories, whether I’m writing, reading, or watching them. Batman: The Animated Series is probably to blame for my superhero obsession, and I thought books were uncool in elementary school before I read Harry Potter, and then BOOKS WERE EVERYTHING. Some other stories I love are Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Sailor Moon, and you know what? I’ll stop now before this entire page becomes a list of my fandoms.

I was born and raised in Florida, lived in Japan for several years, and somehow ended up in the Midwest for a while before moving back to Florida. Wherever I live, I bring imaginary people with me and write stories about them. I hope you enjoy visiting the worlds I create.

Thanks for stopping by, and happy reading!

    1. Hi dignifiedguineapig! (Awesome name, btw.) Always nice to meet a fellow writer, and glad you like my and JE Brand’s sites. I think enjoying the process is the most important part. The rest can come with time and practice. Keep at it and good luck!
