About Me

Kristen C. Tiessen is a storyteller.

She is currently living and creating on the California Central Coast...


...and THis is how she feels when she discovers another good story.



Kristen has been freelancing as a feature writer for magazines, blogs, and online publications for more than a decade. The breadth of her work focuses primarily on people, culture, and the arts. Her background as a dancer, performer and health and fitness professional, and her education in human and behavioral sciences provide her with a broad base from which to approach many topics. Her favorite part of her writing adventures is interviewing new people and discovering the kind of stories that almost write themselves.

You can find samples of her work in publications such as Coyote + Oak, The Wedding Standard, Wine Country this Month,, and the Deep Thoughts blog for Breakaway Tours & Event Planning among others.
