New Dark Faerie Tales Team Member: Meet Kristie

When I put out a call for help out a few months ago, I was really worried about the type of response that I would get.  I really thought that I wouldn’t be able to find any help at all.  I’m very pleased to say that I had a fantastic response to my application.  So many enthusiastic and talented applicants made the decision really hard for me.  I’ve decided to bring on a few team members and I hope that you enjoy their insights and personalities as much as I do.

We have been spending some time getting things setup for the new site launch design, as well as getting everyone trained in the different facets of blogging on the WordPress interface.  Our introduction comes today from Kristie.  Kristie is going to do reviews for us, as well as head up our Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance Reading Challenge for 2012.  You can read some of Kristie’s lovely reviews after this post. Please welcome Kristie to the team.

I have always loved to read, I am rarely seen without a book in my hands. I began reading at the age of four, but the first “novels” I remember reading were by Christopher Pike, R.L. Stine (Fear Street Series) and Caroline B. Cooney. Their stories began my love for all things supernatural and dark. In middle school I began reading Dean Koontz and Michael Crichton, I enjoyed their adult mystery thrillers with a twist of the supernatural. I also devoured Anne Rice “Vampire Chronicles” books, even though I thought Interview with a Vampire was a little overrated, my favorite is still The Vampire Lestat. I was then introduced into the world of fantasy when a friend of mine recommended Terry Goodkind’s Sword of Truth novels. I still enjoy mysteries and thrillers but Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance have taken over as the stories I prefer to read, after a co-worker recommended the Anita Blake series, then I picked up Kim Harrison and Kelley Armstrong and I haven’t looked back.

I own a lot of books! According to Goodreads it is over 800 but I still have a bunch of books I haven’t added to the list. Unfortunately I am running out of space but I have plans to build a set of bookshelves.  I don’t really have a preference between hardcover or paperback, as long as I have the real thing in my hands. Although I have slowly turned to my Kindle but I have actually read more books from the app on my phone, since it is so much easier to carry and hide.

Kim Harrison is the author that I drop whatever I am doing to read her latest title, and high up on my must read list are also Jeaniene Frost, Kelley Armstrong, Charlaine Harris, Nalini Singh, Patricia Briggs and Carrie Vaughn. I look forward to reading new titles and discovering new authors. I really hope that I can recommend a series that makes someone else’s “Must Read List”.  I am really excited about helping Dark Faerie Tales, reviewing books is something I’ve always wanted to do, and I am delighted to get this chance.
