About the Author
Kristin Kaye is an author, ghostwriter and teacher whose work sits at the intersection of nature, narrative and spirituality. Tree Dreams has given rise to a global tree tagging campaign that celebrates the myriad ways we are connected to each other, to nature and to our future (treedreams.net). Kristin's previous work includes Iron Maidens: The Celebration of the Most Awesome Female Muscle in the World, a work of literary non-fiction about her experience directing twenty-five of the world's strongest and most muscular women in their off-Broadway debut. Iron Maidens was a finalist for the Oregon Book Awards and described by Utne magazine as "one of 5 new titles for women who resist easy definition."
2019 Next Generation Indie Book Awards: Finalist in Regional Fiction 2018 International Book Awards Winner in Fiction: Young Adult Featured on Literary Hub's "Every Day is Earth Day: 365 Books to Create Your Climate Change Library" "Kristin Kaye's coming of age novel artfully places her young heroine in the midst of the burning questions facing the entire world such as climate change and culture wars. At the same time, she manages to weave her into a discovery of the ancient human connections to both trees and dreams. This is a work of wit and imagination that informs as it inspires; it also marks a trail of encouragement for the mutual lives of people and trees." --Michael Meade, author of The Genius Myth and Why the World Doesn't End "Kristin Kaye's story of loss and redemption is fresh, edgy, and thrilling. Her prose inhales and exhales and speaks to the best in us, reminding us that sometimes we must risk everything, including our identity and comforts, to find the truth we are searching for." --Maura Conlon-McIvor, author of FBI Girl: How I learned to Crack My Father's Code "Told with lyrical clarity and evocative detail, Tree Dreams reminds that what's real is in our hearts, and is bigger than our small, human selves." --Julia Stoops, author of Parts per Million "In brilliantly onomatopoeic prose, Kaye shows how Jade comes to several epiphanies about her tree dreams while also coming to know the people that her family considers enemies. Throughout, the author relates the protagonist's tale of redemption in delightfully sparse language, like a long poem in which small details matter, every word counts, and images are so cogent that they anchor readers in the fictive reality like tree roots . . . A superbly written tale filled with realistic, engaging, and quirky characters." --Kirkus Reviews
