Crystal began writing stories and poetry as soon as she was able to write, and is regularly seen scribbling away on the back of receipts when she leaves her notebook at home. To say that writing is her passion is an understatement. She is a ridiculously curious person and therefore had no other choice but to go into journalism.
Crystal has a bachelor's degree in Religion and a graduate degree in International Relations. While her work has focused on social equality and human rights, community journalism has turned out to be her favorite form of reporting. She loves getting to know local people and discovering their stories.
She has two sweet, adorable, and loud children.
If she ever has any spare time, she enjoys reading and writing science fiction.
