Biographical Sketch

Kristine Franklin was born December 31, 1958, in Tacoma, WA. She is the author of numerous stories for young readers, nearly all of which have garnered enthusiastic praise from reviewers. Franklin's books usually address tough issues, but she provides her fictional heroes and heroines with enough mettle to meet those challenges and triumph over them. She and her husband, Martin D. Franklin, lived for several years in various Central American locales, and she drew upon her experiences there for some of her works. The woods of northern Minnesota, where she and her family settled after their stint in Central America, provide the setting for the author's 1997 novel, Lone Wolf . Franklin states that she felt a deep reverence for books even as a young child. She credits her father, who had a love for books and a thirst for knowledge, even though he only finished the eighth grade in school. He bought her stack of used books at every opportunity and also encouraged her to write stories of her own. Now she is taking advantage of the opportunity to pass that same love for books along to other young people. Biographical Source: Something About the Author , Vol. 124, p. 70-73
