Kristin Dreyer Kramer is a writer. Or at least that's what she likes to think she is.
Most of the time, though, she feels like she's more of a reader. And an editor.
And a proof-reader. And a rewriter.
Kristin was born and raised in a small town in West Michigan. It was there,
during the long, arctic winters, that she first began writing. At the young age of
eleven, she became the president of the Poo Authors' Club, a writers' group
whose members included Kristin's little cousin, Amber, their two cats, Misti and
Muffin, and their Cabbage Patch Kids, Carla Harmonia and Birdie Wilda.
After graduating from Calvin College with a BA in English and a minor in
linguistics (specializing in gender communications), Kristin took a job in
advertising. She spent three years as a copywriter/PR chick/proof-reader/professional
spray-gluer/web production coordinator/red-headed stepchild
and writing fun stuff (like a little web site called The Flying Halibut and a
column for a local indie paper) at night until she walked away from agency life,
got married, and moved to Massachusetts.
Kristin now spends her waking hours (and a few of her non-waking hours)
working as a freelance writer and the editor-in-chief of the entertainment ezine,
NightsAndWeekend.com. Each month,
she writes an entertainment column for the
Women's Independent Press,
an independent newspaper, and is featured in
Explore!, a magazine that's
distributed around the national parks near Bozeman, Montana.
Kristin has been widely published in a number of other publications, both in print
and online, and has won a number of awards, including Top Ten Publication Editor (fifth
place out of over a hundred) in the 2002 Preditors and Editors Annual Readers'
Poll and the prestigious Best Daughter Ever Award, granted to her by the Mary
