Author Kristina Gruell.jpg

I am a Storyteller. 


Kristina was born in Dallas, Texas. Growing up, she rode horses, danced, and escaped into a book whenever she could. She did play-by-post role-playing in the early days of AOL chatrooms, and that is where her love of character and world building began. Her first stories were based on those early role-playing characters and eventually, she began writing to entertain her family and friends.


A gamer-girl, she met her husband playing World of Warcraft. They have three children, three dogs and a cat. Their family lives south of Dallas, in a home filled with books, Legos, and board games.


She is the author of the In Blood and Fire Series. Her books include: From the Ashes, A Burning Ember, The Flame Within, The Conflagration, The World Ablaze, and The In Blood and Fire Companion and Short Story Collection.
