Kristin Conard is a freelance writer as well as a writing instructor in California by way of Kansas, New Mexico, New Jersey, and England. As a child, she wanted to be a librarian, because she thought that the librarian was the one who got to write all the books in the library. Her obsession with reading and writing has continued, and when she is not grading papers and lesson planning, she is working on a collection of essays and planning her next trip.
Her writing includes travel essays, reported features, service pieces, gear reviews, poetry, and creative non-fiction. She’s the co-author of the award-winning Kansas Trail Guide: The Best Hiking, Biking, and Riding in the Sunflower State.
