Kristin Ward

Author Kristin Wardabout this book: I have always had an affinity for nature and have worked in the realm of science instruction through my career. This background is evident in all of my books as I bring our current environmental issues to the forefront of my work. In my latest novel, Rise of Gaia, I blend of science fiction and fantasy with environmental overtones. In this story, Mother Earth has awakened as a result of an unchecked onslaught on the environment. The research I conducted for this book was grounded in the events that happen as a result of her wrath. I read numerous articles on natural disasters in order to write pivotal scenes in the book.


Here's what readers are saying:
