Kristen Schroeder joined 12 x 12 in 2014 when she got serious about writing picture books. Her debut, ALIEN TOMATO, is coming out with Page Street Kids in spring 2020. She loves to travel, which brought her to Australia over twenty years ago. She stayed for eleven years but moved back to Minnesota when the warm weather and beaches became tiresome (ha!). You can find her hanging out in the Pitch Perfect section of the 12 x 12 forum.
