Hello and welcome! I’m Kristen Otte, and I write books for children, teens, and adults.
My Adventures of Zelda books are a chapter book series for children. The Zelda books follow a curious and stubborn pug who loves mischief. The first three books are available for purchase, and the fourth book will be released in the summer of 2015. You can read the first chapter for free here or sign up for my email list and receive The Adventures of Zelda: A Pug Holiday for free! A Pug Holiday includes five holiday-themed stories from the first three Zelda books and a brand new sixth story that isn’t available anywhere else.
If you enjoy young adult fiction, read my free short story, The Final Hour, or learn about my young adult novel The Photograph. I am currently writing the sequel to The Photograph, and I project a release date of early 2015 for that project.
Fans of my books can join my email list to receive the latest news about my upcoming book releases, advance review copies, sales, giveaways, and more.
Besides writing, I teach and speak about writing, along with the intersection of writing and faith. I also love traveling to schools speaking to children and teens about reading and writing. Read more about my workshops and author days here.
My blog is home base for my readers. I love introducing people to great books and authors, so I post book reviews and author interviews monthly, along with short stories and chapters from my work.
Besides writing, I love playing and coaching basketball, hanging out with my husband, and playing with our dogs Zelda and Peach. We have a special love for dogs with smushed faces.
