Meet Kiersi Burkhart

Kiersi Burkhart

I’m a writer of young adult and middle-grade novels, children’s books, short stories, sci-fi epics, and a lot of other things in between. I also moonlight as a blogger/book reviewer and occasionally, as an illustrator.

With all that out of the way, the real thing you should know about me is that I love to read, but I’m a harsh critic. I guess those things go hand-in-hand: I’ll read everything put in front of me, and I can usually pack away a 400-page novel in a matter of hours, but as a writer–I know good writing and bad writing when I see it, and a poorly-placed adverb can really turn me off.

On the other hand, if I love your work, I’ll love it with every bone in my body.
