Check out the blurb for Kristi Cramer’s upcoming YA, time travel, adventure novel, Sherwood Rogue. This will be the first novel in the Fickle Universe series. PREORDER IT TODAY!
As a child, I didn’t have imaginary tea parties.
I was an outlaw fighting alongside the greatest rogue in Sherwood Forest, the notorious Robin Hood.
The stories kept me sane when I had no control.
They freed me from a bleak existence of abuse and neglect.
If life taught me anything, it was that living was hard, and only the dreams you made happen came true.
At nineteen, living at my uncle’s cabin in the Oregon Cascades, my life was anything but the fantasies of my childhood.
I was free, but I was alone. I was surviving.
Until I hiked into the mountains and carelessly challenged the universe to notice me.
A door made of white light appeared in front of me, compelling me to step through. How was I supposed to know one step would change my life forever, in the most unexpected of ways?
I took it. I stepped through.
Into the greatest trials, both physical and emotional, I’d ever face—into another time and unknown world that would test my strength to my core.
I would fight…
I would kill…
I would love…
Most of all, I would live.

When Kristi isn’t riding her Harley or working her day job, you can find her in front of her computer, hammering out exciting suspense stories, or chatting around on social media.
Although she has honed her writing craft for 30+ years, she only published her first book in 2012. Her strange and varied work history – having held jobs from a hotel housekeeper, a car wash attendant, an insurance underwriter, an electronics assembly line worker, a date entry tech in auto parts warehouse, a blueberry nursery shipping coordinator, a local delivery driver, and a truck driver and owner of her own trucking company – gives her a broad base from which to build her characters and storylines. Now a billing specialist for The Arc of Lane County, she supports those who care for people with disabilities while she pursues her writing career in earnest.
She got married for the first time at 38, skipped being a mommy and went straight to Grandma. Turns out it’s best for everyone that way.
Kristi’s Young Adult Fantasy novels are exciting adventures with wholesome life lessons that will delight readers of all ages. The Bonnie Isles Trilogy is set in a fictional kingdom in which magic and intrigue affect the lives of the royal family.
Kristi’s contemporary novels are about hard-working people living realistic lives. Her heroes are cowboys and bush pilots, her heroines are tough cops and office workers and veterinarians. She puts ordinary people into extraordinary situations, and lets them discover true character in the face of danger.
It might be somewhat out of style these days, but Kristi’s heroes and heroines have lines that they don’t cross, things that they won’t do to save the day. They will find a way to achieve their goals that may take longer and be riskier, rather than cross those lines into doing “whatever it takes” and landing in the murk of questionable morality.
They are human, and they do make mistakes. They are practical people and if their loved one is in imminent danger and the only way to save them is to shoot to kill, somebody is going to die. But death and mayhem are never the first choice for Kristi’s heroes.
Her villains, however, are under no such restraints. With each novel, Kristi goes deeper to create characters who have real motives, goals, and backgrounds that give the reader a glimpse into the heart of darkness. Villains who view life as cheap, and leave chaos in their wake.
The end result is nail biting, edge of your seat suspense that will keep you turning pages, rooting for the good guys and that happy ever after ending.
In addition to writing, Kristi drove truck with her husband over the road for five years, and those experiences continue to give her inspiration for her writing, even though she is home every day, now.
The Thomas Family Novels is a series of standalone novels featuring characters connected to the town of Syracuse, Kansas. Most notably a family of cattle ranchers whose ties to the land go back to the 1880s. Good, old-fashioned cowboys.
