KRISTIN KAYE is an author, ghostwriter and teacher whose work sits at the intersection of nature, narrative and spirituality. Tree Dreams: A Novel is forthcoming April 10 from Spark Press. The novel gave rise to a global tree tagging campaign that celebrates the myriad ways we are connected to each other, to nature and to our future. Tree Dreams tags now hang in over 20 states and 12 countries around the world.

Kristin serves as Writer-in-Residence at Boyer Sudduth Environmental Consultants, a consultancy that advises schools on organizational sustainability and environmental literacy, and shares Tree Dreams with classes.

Kristin’s previous work includes Iron Maidens: The Celebration of the Most Awesome Female Muscle in the World, which details her experience directing twenty-five of the world’s strongest and most muscular women in an off-Broadway show. The book was a finalist for the Oregon Book Awards, and described by Utne Reader as “one of 5 new titles for women who resist easy definition.”

Kristin lives in the folds of Mt. Tam in Northern California with her husband, daughter and little dog Geo.
