Devouring an entire novel in a weekend is pretty much the norm for Kiersten. She reads a lot and never turns her nose away from a book. Whether it be the latest trendy book club read, a smutty fantasy series, or a historical fiction adventure, she’s always up for diving into the pages…and has a lot to say about it. She is also a writer of prose herself and is self-publishing her debut novel Safe Harbor, the first in a young adult contemporary trilogy, under the pen name K.Sinko.


Kiersten holds a Master’s in Journalism from DePaul University, where she specifically focused on multimedia journalism and graphic design. She managed the social media for Hearst before taking on her role as a Social Media Editor at Reader’s Digest. From there she was able to build herself as an invaluable content creator, from writing articles to creating social posts and graphics, moving to a Senior Editor role at Eat This, Not That! before taking the leap to work for herself.

Fun Stuff

In her humble opinion, a picnic is always a good idea. Especially if it involves a can of kombucha, a personal charcuterie board, and a really, really good book.
