Author Bio
Kristiana Gregory
Kristiana Gregory writes historical fiction and is best known for her Dear America series. She does a great deal of research for her books, visiting the places she's going to write about and finding out useful information such as what the weather was like, or what people thought about, by looking through journals and almanacs of that time. Kristiana feels that her readers can relate to the characters in her book because the problems they deal with--learning to make good decisions or getting through hard times--are universal.
