Kristi Lukes wants to live in a world where there are no sticky fingerprints on her computer, no chew marks on her papers, and sand and sun outside her window, but instead resides in Minnesota with her four children, and two dogs, Bruiser and Stella. As a writer, she has published a short story at Smashwords.com, while earning her BFA in Creative Writing from Full Sail University. She was inspired to create mystery and a pounding heartbeat while reading her favorite Author, Stephen King, when she was so young she had to hide her obsession for the material. She creates stories that pull you in hard and fast, and leave you breathless and wanting more. When she's not busy being a mom, you can find her pouring her soul into the stories she is writing. Her upcoming projects include short stories as well as a novel. You can find her work, as well as more information on her future projects at her website.
