About Kristen

Sneaking into nightclubs to see bands since I was sixteen, I’ve been researching Because the Night my whole life.  Now I’ve been to more concerts that I could possibly count.  I get an up close and personal look at the behind the scenes workings of the entertainment industry doing makeup and hair for TV, movies, and commercials.  I’m a graduate of the School of Hard Knocks and Blaine Beauty School. The “beauty and the brains” (according to Julie) behind the Undead Duo, I enjoy watching football, decorating my house, and making wickedly decadent desserts I force feed to all my guests.  I do not have a Boston accent.


If you’re jonesing for a Kristen fix, and I know you are, you can check out  the Giant Tales anthology. Four of my short stories are featured. But wait! There’s more! It’s the first of series releasing this year.

You can email Kristen at kjstrassel (at) gmail (dot) com  or follow her on Twitter. Or, if you’re so inclined, visit her website or chat with her on Facebook.

    • Hooray!!!! Just send it! Look at our post, We Want You to Scare the Hell Out of Us, but looking for about 1000 words, doesn’t have to be Christmas themed, but sure does make it fun. So happy that you’re happy! And I really enjoyed your work.
