About Kristen McGuiness


Hello, my name is...

Oh hell man, what do you want me to say? I’ve been through some shit. My dad was a marijuana kingpin who spent most of his life (and mine) in prison. My mom doesn’t even steal pens from the office. And me? I’m like freaking Goldilocks. Right in the middle.

I got the degrees.

I’ve had the jobs.

I’ve seen the world.

I’ve done the drugs.

I’ve been through some shit.

Now, I’m a middle-aged writer living in magical Ojai with two magical kids, a magical dog, and a very, very human husband. But enough about me, let’s hear about you.
