Author of the Day

Kirsten Fullmer
Kirsten Fullmer is an author who bid farewell to her job in the drafting industry and pursued her dream to write novels while traveling with her husband for his job. When she isn't writing, Fullmer loves tinkering with all kinds of crafts, including scrapbooking, cross stitching, crocheting and sewing. As our author of the day, Fullmer chats with us about how she fell in love with the Shabby Chic style, why she picked a small town as the backdrop for her books and talks about her writing habits.
