Mice day for it: children's author Krystina Kellingley at Lancaster Library

Krystina Kellingley
Local author Krystina Kellingley, author of Our Street Books new children's title Mistflower the Loneliest Mouse, and illustrator Sarah Nash will be in Lancaster library on Saturday 22nd June.

Krystina will be reading extracts from the  book and Sarah will be drawing animal characters from the story.

Krystina is a reader and commissioning editor/copy editor/publisher of imprints Axis Mundi Books, Cosmic Egg Books (Fantasy/Sci Fi/Horror), Our Street Books (children’s books) and Dodona Books. She is currently working on an adult supernatural fiction novel.

She has had several short stories published in spiritual magazines as well as many online articles on dream interpretation and other subjects. As well as teaching creative writing, she has worked as a hypnotherapist, counsellor and a dream analysist. Krystina travels internationally to tutor in writing workshops as well as privately mentoring new writers of adult and children’s fiction.

She has a BA in Imaginative Writing and Literature and an MA in Creative Writing. She lives in the UK.

"Mistflower started out as a way to redress the balance between the love animals so freely and unconditionally give and the way people sometimes fail to appreciate their worth," says Krystina, "but in the process of writing other aspects came to the surface, like the way the companionship of an animal can help us deal with loss and grief or sudden or unwelcome change."

Get along and enjoy the fun, which starts at 11.30am. It's free.
