Crystal Klimavicz... Author, Writer's Coach & Editor, & More
I grew up in a small coastal town in Maine, spent twenty years living in the South and overseas, and have since returned to my home roots. My husband, two children and I now live near a farm just outside of beautiful Portland, Maine.
After working in sales and earning my Master's in Healthcare Management, I did a 'one-eighty' to begin a career in writing. I published my first novel in 2014, Falling Through Trees, a poignant story about two sisters, family loss, and learning to let go of the past. This Side of Perfect is Book #2 in the newly-named Kate Fox series, and both books were repolished and then republished under the pen name, Crystal Cole in 2017/2018.
Writer and entrepreneur, I also founded Indie Books Unleashed (IBU) in the hopes of providing other authors discoverability of their work. Check out IBU at www.IndieBooksUnleashed.com!
With a love for writing and learning, I teach memoir-writing to seniors, creative-writing to juniors, and now coach and edit up-and-coming writers. Write to me at CrystalColeBooks@gmail.com to discuss your project, my very reasonable fees, and how we can work together to get your book-baby published.
My passion lies in personal growth and finding balance in life, and I allow my characters to do the same. If you're in search of a drama-filled read with a dose of suspense and humor tossed in, pick up a copy of Falling Through Trees or This Side of Perfect today. Book #3 in the series, Waking the Wind, will be told from Molly's point of view, and is due out at the end of 2019.
When I'm not crafting a story, I love to head out for a run or go to the beaches nearby. Thank you for reading my work and for supporting writers everywhere.
