Kristen Simmons | Nevada Writer

I was raised in Reno, Nevada—just below Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada Mountains—with horses and dogs and Red Angus cattle. When I was little I had a colorful imagination (read: I was a cheerful liar), and loved to write stories.

I attended several colleges in several states before finally graduating with a B.A. in psychology and a master’s in social work from the University of Nevada. A passion for helping survivors of trauma and abuse led me to become a mental health therapist. An addiction to all things chocolate led me to become a Jazzercise instructor. And a love for the written word led me to where I am today.
