My Story

Kristin Helling enjoys stories with a journey- whether it’s a journey across the globe, a journey through space, or a journey of finding one's self.


She writes adult fiction thrillers. When she's not killing people (fictionally, of course!), she also has a passion for children's stories and writes them under the pen name Kristin Alis.


She received her BA in English-Writing from Park University (Parkville, MO) with an 18-hour minor in Psychology. 

Kristin owns a coffee house, co-owns the publishing imprint Wordwraith Books, is married to a Photographer, and is Mama of two and their hairy sibling, a collie-shepherd mix.

I thought this book was fantastic! It kept me reading and curious until I finished! I cant wait

to read the last book in

the series, to see how

this all ends!

Great story with a lot of twists and turns. Including a surprise ending. Loved the psychological implications. I am looking forward to reading the next book.

I finished chapter one with tears in my eyes, thankful the scene had ended and excited to read what happens next!
