Welcome to my page! Are you a cheeseaholic too? An avid reader? A lover of freebies, or searching for a little sunshine? You're in the right place!
I'm a story fanatic who has been blogging since 2009, and only started to share a story that had eaten my brain--the very first one that gained interest from literary agents. (In the plural!) That story went on to win 2nd place in Pitch Wars 2012, then a publishing contract for late 2013. (Yay, Moonless! --Book 1 in the Maiden of Time series) It has become an Amazon best seller, and the complete series is now available. I've been published in various anthologies including the first IWSG anthology (where I won 1 of 10 highly sought after slots), and in more of my own books.
Here's my official authorness blurb:
Crystal Collier pens clean reads in fantasy/sci-fi, historical, and romance varieties, with the occasional touch of humor, horror, or inspiration. She practices her brother-induced ninja skills while teaching children or madly typing about paranormal creatures. She has lived from coast to coast and now calls Florida home with her creative husband, four littles, and “friend” (a.k.a. the zombie locked in her closet). Secretly, she dreams of world domination, time travel, and a bottomless supply of cheese.
