Kristen Britain

Kristen Britain is the New York Times bestselling author of the Green Rider Series. She grew up in the Finger Lakes region of New York State, where she started her first novel - an undersea fantasy featuring herself and her friends - at the age of nine. She published her first book, a cartoon collection called, Horses and Horsepeople, at the age of thirteen. In 1987 she completed a degree in film production, with a minor in writing, at Ithaca College. After graduation, travel beckoned and she began a career as a ranger with the National Park Service, enabling her to work in a variety of natural and historical settings, from 300 feet below the surface of the Earth to 13,000 feet above sea level on the Continental Divide; and from the textile mills of the American Industrial Revolution to the homes of Americans who changed the course of history. Her first published epic fantasy novel, Green Rider, the story of a runaway school girl who finds herself in deep peril when she agrees to bear a message for a dying Green Rider (king’s messenger), was released in 1998 and has never been out of print. Recently a book soundtrack for Green Rider was released by Siren Songs: https://www.greenriderbooksoundtrack.com/

Currently she is at work on the 7th novel of the Green Rider Series at her home deep in the woods on an island in Maine.
