Welcome to the Home Base of Author Kristen Otte
My mission is to bring joy and laughter through stories to people young and old. I write books for children, teens, and adults.
My Adventures of Zelda books are a chapter book series for children ages 7-12. The Zelda books follow a curious and stubborn pug who loves mischief. The first two books are available for purchase in paperback and ebook formats. The third book in the series will be released in the summer of 2014. You can read the first chapter for free here.
I also write young adult fiction. Read my free short story, The Final Hour, or read about my young adult novel The Photograph. I am currently writing the sequel to The Photograph, and I project a release date of early 2015 for that project.
Besides writing, I teach and speak about writing, along with the intersection of writing and faith. I also love traveling to schools speaking to children and teens about reading and writing. Read more about my workshops and author days here.

My blog is home base for my readers. I love introducing people to great books and authors so I post book reviews and author interviews monthly, along with short stories and chapters from my work. I also like to mix in a video post every month or so, usually to give Zelda some camera time.
If you are a fan of my work, I invite you to join the street team. Members of the Street Team receive the latest news (before anyone else) about my writing projects, upcoming book releases, promotions, book giveaways, and more. The Street Team also has the opportunity for free advance review copies of my books.
