Get inside the mind of new author Kristina Carmela in her debut novel, This Time Around. Kristina was born and raised in Westchester, New York where she fell in love with books at a young age. While she has tackled countless creative avenues, mostly including sewing and painting, writing a novel has been a bucket list item for as long as she could remember. She is most proud to share the fictional world that has been alive in her imagination for so long. But more importantly, she is excited for everybody to meet Georgia Fields, who mirrors the best and most interesting parts of her.
When Kristina isn’t writing, she enjoys doting on her dog Asher or rewatching her favorite tv shows and movies. Kristina likes to try out any creative project and loves exploring; making memories with the people she loves most in her life. One day, she hopes to adopt senior dogs and fall in love with a British man where they can spend their days growing old on the beach together.
