Hey there, I'm Kristen Kieffer!
I began writing fiction in elementary school, and I haven't stopped since. Three years ago, I decided to take a chance on my dreams and began pursuing a career as a professional novelist. I spent the first two years researching, developing, and drafting my passion project, a medieval fantasy novel called The Dark Between.
I made every mistake in the book along the way (no really—it took me two and a half years to finish the first draft...and then I scrapped the whole thing and wrote it again!) until I finally realized that I'd figured out every single way NOT to write a novel. The obvious next step? Take my many failures and turn them into an action plan for success!
Looking back, the one thing that would have saved me hundreds—if not thousands—of hours of failure and frustration would have been a resource full of valuable, actionable insights for writers. It may have been too late for me, but I knew wasn't too late for the thousands of other fledgling writers around the world looking to turn their stories into novels worthy of bestseller status.
I made it my personal mission to create that resource so fellow writers could skip the struggle and rock their novels the first time around. In January 2015, She's Novel was born, and since that day the She's Novel community has grown to over 10,000 writers worldwide!
Curious about The Dark Between and my other upcoming novels?
