About the Author

Kristiana Sfirlea is the award-winning author of The Stormwatch Diaries, a spooky fantasy series for kids and teens. Cute and creepy comfort reads are their trademark.

Like their popular characters Rose and Marek, Kristiana has faced some scary things in their life; not ghosts and monsters but a severe health condition that almost killed them. And like their characters, Kristiana has learned that the best way to face your fears is by putting them into a story.

Kristiana's dream is creating safe places for young readers and writers to explore their experiences through the power of storytelling. As a disabled, queer, autistic author of faith, Kristiana has found the safest place in their books. Their greatest joy is when readers do the same.

 

Kristiana loves Jesus, laughing too hard at their own jokes, imaginary life with their characters, and real life with their partner.
