Kristen Kiesling is extremely good at one thing. Scaring herself. She grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma where every forest held a mystery, every mound of dirt contained a body, and all roads lead to uncovering fictional truth.
Her YA graphic novel, THE HARROWING, is set for publication in April 2024 with Abrams Amulet, and her YA contemporary manuscript, IF I TELL, won the 2020 SCBWI Sue Alexander Award.
Kristen writes graphic novels, young adult fiction and picture books. She enjoys creating new twists that challenge readers’ beliefs, interpretations, and assumptions–questions she hopes linger long after her words have ended.
She is represented by Dara Hyde of Hill Nadell Literary Agency.
