Books & Books, Coral Gables
Kristy Kiernan was born in Tennessee and raised on the beaches of southwest Florida. She developed a love of reading as a child, devouring Nancy Drews and Trixie Beldens at a disconcerting clip, and graduating to whatever anyone left lying around when she ran out of girl detective stories. She knew she wanted to be a writer at a young age and, with the support of her husband, finally pursued publication in her thirties.
Her first novel, Catching Genius, became a word-of-mouth hit with reading groups. (And if you were at the Books & Books Book Club Mixer two years ago, you certainly remember Kristy’s heartfelt discussion.) Her second, Matters of Faith, was an IndieNext Notable Selection and won a bronze medal in the Florida Book Awards.
She lives with her husband in southwest Florida and still spends as much time as she can reading on the beach and daydreaming about the story she’ll write next.
