Kristin Harper is the author of the Dune Island series. Ever since she was young, there have been few things she liked more than creative writing and spending the summer in Cape Cod. Eventually (after a succession of jobs that bored her to tears), she found a way to combine those two passions by writing women's fiction that occurs in coastal settings. While she doesn't live on the Cape year round, she escapes to the beach whenever she can. For more information, visit
