Kristan is a hybrid author with writing credits including novels (most recently After Oil, KCEditions), novellas, numerous short stories as well as two blogs (Kristan's Desk, Savvy Canadian Business Women).
Born in Kirkland Lake, Ontario and educated in North Bay and Toronto, Kristan has been writing since the age of thirteen under the pen names Selena Grey and Meredith Hayes. In 2014 she dropped the pen names in time to release the Special "Anime North" Edition of After Oil and re-launch her writing blog.
Kristan is a staunch supporter of literacy, reading and young writer's programs (Member of the Ambassador Program for NaNoWriMo, supporter of a few local and online libraries) and holds a current membership with The Indie Writer's Network.
She moved around frequently when she was younger and considers most of Northern Ontario her "home town" as she has lived near Kirkland Lake, and in North Bay, Timmins, Algoma Mills, Elliot Lake and Sudbury before moving to Toronto to continue her education in Business and Commerce. She currently holds a day position as an Office Administrator for a construction company (another thing close to her heart as her family background is also primarily in construction and the trades) in Toronto.
Still not quite settled, Kristan continues to travel when the company she works for has their off season. She visits her home towns whenever she can during the rest of the year.
