Kristin Rockaway is a native New Yorker and recovering corporate software engineer. After working in the IT industry for far too many years, she finally traded the city for the surf and chased her dreams out to Southern California, where she spends her days happily writing stories instead of code.

In addition to writing novels, she teaches Fiction with Gotham Writers Workshop, shares her love of cruising on her blog, Cruise Obsessed, and plans dream vacations for her clients at her boutique travel agency, Novel World Travel. When she’s not working, she enjoys spending time with her husband and son, taking naps, and planning her next big trip.
